The Hotel is located near the mall road. The rooms are clean and good. Rooms at the rearside in the higher floor will give a good view of the mountains. The breakfast menu is verymuch limited. Wifi is available in lobby.

The food served was really good, typically one of the young room boy's service was really good. Appreciate his patience and his attitude to serve the... More

The service was pathetic, food at the ground floor restaurant was horrible.... More
