The TV had a makeshift electrical connection. The staff were courteous but not very helpful. Wifi is available only in the lobby. The... More

Poor customer service. Change the receptionist . The rooms are neat and clean. But had a horrible time. We stayed there for one day without any problem. We requested one night extra to the receptionist and asked for just 500 rs reduction. From that time he bahaved like a house owner.

Hotel was good, rooms were neat, efficient housekeeping and friendly staff. Enjoyed the breakfast as it was like a home cooked food and was in plenty. Even the restaurant at the ground floor offered nice vegetarian food. Our main criteria to book this hotel was the car parking they were providing, but after staying there we felt it was an... More
