This is the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. I was booked here by a relative as I was visiting the city on a short break. My experience went from bad to worse and I have photos to prove how bad the place was 1. We had taken 2 rooms on ground floor and both were dingy, with no... More

Management can do small little things to give better service to guests. Hotel should have its own restaurant so that guests who do not want to eat in room can enjoy food in restaurant. Since hotel on main road there is no problem of conveyance.

Recently stayed for 3days. The room was dirty and the bedsheets/towel were very old and torn. Even the non-smoking rooms smelled of ash. The only thing good about the hotel is its location. Easy access to all parts of the city. Would not recommend this hotel.

It is my pleasure to stay at hotel Gardenia. It is centrally located with all the important destinations within reach. The service is good. The carges are reasonable. Food served is tasty and good for health.

Excepting its locality I would never recommend this hotel. I have to wait at the lobby for 30 min the check in, since I made the booking online and the staff members were not able to locate it on the first go. The rooms were not that clean and are not sound proof as well. So you hear when ever... More

Stayed recently for 2 nights. Was given a room which was small and smelled of not being used for ages. Asked for a different room and was given even smaller room. I was Travelling alone so didn't mind it. I won't recommend it to anyone.
