Excellent location just behind a temple and very close to Rabindra Sarobar Lake. There are some good eating joints within walking distance of 10 to 15 minutes and being a south India this was...

The rooms are tiny but service is pretty good . The location is a big plus point,they wont create an issue if you are a mixed group of girls and boys travelling together. The staffs are well-mannered and helpful but the only con is the rooms are too tiny .

I stayed at the Live-In Service apartments (room 122) for twenty eight days in February and March. The rooms are quite comfortable. I had the flu in my first week and suffered poisoning from a brand name fruit drink bought from a street vendor in my second. I, therefore, spent most of the first two weeks in the room itself...

I stayed in the same room whose photo you are going to see. The location is wonderful. Do not expect wonderful services, as they clear it out the moment you entered. I entered very late at night, as the train got delayed. Got a very cold, irresponsible response at 3am. They were not ready to give extra pillows, till I... More
