This was the worst place Ive stayed at. Rooms were dirty like toilets, and the toilets were even worst, dont have a word to describe it, looked like noone stayed in this place for years together. Had to stay as we had already paid an advance :-(

A homely stay with family is what you can expect at Janata Happy Home. With staff always ready to assist you happily, the Hotel also serves good food. Located with lush greenery around the hotel, rooms are simply designed.
