Not recommended. Very bad location, v have to pay Rs.60 to coolie to reach there as no vehicle access possible. They hv charged Rs.60 for cards which we never wanted. No room heater. Not advisable at all. Not much clean.

This hotel is not for those who have problems in climbing, as one needs to climb atleast 30-40 stairs before you reach the hotel.. even after you reach the hotel, its a sorry state of affairs, the interiors are claustrophobic and you feel that some body has locked you somewhere. The service was fair, but the enough staff was not... More
