Avoid this hotel. Don't consider staying in hotel for even an hour. Poor Service Very Old Facility No Hospitality Very Bad People I have experienced such a worst service from this guys. I went during the time of renovation, but there was no alternative arrangement done even after requesting before the stay.

The lobby interior with combination mirrors and wooden stairs are very impressive for a budget hotel. But that's about it. The single room provided to me (October 2011) on 3rd floor had low ceiling with ceiling fan hanging dangerously low and directly overhead the sleeping bed. The corridor towards rooms had a very 'cold and aloof' feeling (no proper lightening,... More

The swimming pool was the main reason we picked this hotel, but there was no water in the pool. The hotels website boasted a veg resterant, outdoor eating, a bar, wifi and a healthclub. during our stay there was none of these operating. One of the two lifts was not working, but that was not a problem as there weren't... More

The hotel is a little ways off from the main attraction, but not so far off that a short (about 5 min) Auto/taxi ride cant fix. It has great interior, the lobby being very spacious with exotic furniture. However, it is pretty ill lit (no idea why). The staff are extremely helpful and prompt. Our rooms were spacious and bathrooms... More

We stayed here as it is close to the railway station. the room was old and tired looking, and for the price I would have expected more. The hotel seemed badly cleaned and maintained. However we did sleep well and we enjoyed the breakfast.

The hotel is located very near to the railway station. The rooms were okay ( rather as what you can expect in a tier-2 city). The room service charge is 200% of the cost mentioned in the menu in the marutham restaurant. They didn't had mineral water bottle. The breakfast was good ( idly, Vada, dosa only) bu the coffee...
