It literally lives up to its name - Provides a Shelter, maybe from rain My booking with the hotel is the only thing which went smoothly. Clearly, they are wide open given their poor quality.

When we reached there late night, they served us cold dinner even after repeatedly reminding them that we ordered food. And don't... More

When I checked in , I informed the staff that people will be coming in throughout the day and that my husband would... More
