I stayed here with family during June,2015. I felt the hotel is overrated and costly as well. The rooms were average and bed sheets were not clean enough. They even charge extra for room heaters. Couple of positives I found are, location (walking distance from mall and food). I believe, similar or better hotels nearby available with lesser cost

This is excellent locationwise-right on the mall. Rooms are not very big but neat & clean. Service is good. Food is excellent. This is a budget hotel so do not expect a great luxury. Overall good experience

Unbelievably unprofessional and demeaning approach. When you complain about their infra like washroom flush and water speed in the shower they will make you feel as if this is kms of the best hotels you have ever stayed in your life. So their answers would be like the functionality is as such only. Dirty curtains seemed like make shift rooms.... More

the hotel location is very close to the Mall road, which is a big advantage. The views from the rooms are fairly average and nothing to boast about. The food is decent, though the breakfast variety can certainly be beefed up.The staff of the hotel is really helpful, and will go the extra mile to make your stay comfortable. Fairly... More
