The worst experience u can have in a hotel. Least on service. Sick attitude. Don't even bother to consider staying. No newspaper. Sick reception and room service. The front office is least bothered once u check in. Over all its a worst complimentary break fast.

Not worth the money charged. The washroom was stinking. The condition of the hotel could have been better. The restaurant in the hotel was below par. The glasses weren'’t clean. It took ages for them to serve the food and even longer to get the bill.Hotel rooms and other facilities are pathetic. There is hardly any ventilation system and do... More

We were supposed to be boarded at The spring and once we went there, we were told there are no rooms and were given this replacement. The service is horrible, the location is close to the place we wanted to visit so that was the only Plus .The room service is probably the worst I have seen, they took 1... More

The hotel though located in the heart of the city would be a poor choice to make. The service is not up to the mark. For the price that is charged it is certainly not worth the money. The in-house restaurant has little to offer in terms of Indian cuisine and if one is looking for decent indian food one... More

Please avoid this hotel unless you don't have any option at all. Abosultely zero value for money. Very badly managed and maintained. I had to change 3 rooms because one or the other things were not working including AC. I had to finally suffer because of no AC.

Also the rooms are now old, the TV in the room is that old box tv, bathroom... More

+ Conveniently located + Spacious rooms + Courteous Service + Breakfast buffet included (taste/quality varies by day) + Value for price + Recently started ELEVATE BAR worth a mention (excellent location to hang out. Great Music / Good Food / Excellent Choice of Cocktails) + Food OK (not worth the hype) @ WOK A TOQUE Restaurant

My mom had a visa interview and we did a phone reservation for 2 days. I did ask them repeatedly for email confirmation and they said “don’t worry your reservation is confirmed”. I again called them 2 days before arrival and they said everything is fine. Now when my mom arrived at the hotel for check-in, they said “Sorry we... More

Is a popular hotel right on the main road and is at a really good location. It seems to be undergoing a facelift right now and that is reflected in the swanky new asian restaurant and lounge, which are both really fancy and have a great menu (the drinks are on the higher side though). The rooms are quite spacious... More
