Breakfast doesn't have a great spread , but could be a good working breakfast for people on... More

I picked this property based purely on the Rankings of Trip advisor and the photos on the website. It was a last minute trip and hence I was happy to have gotten a response for room vacancy from the hotel via email within a very short period. There have been a number of instances where the photos on the website... More

Recently stayed here for a few nights on a business trip. Service was very good, however rooms are a little dated. Everything is clean, but could use a modernisation. Bed was ok, but have had better, was a little on the firm side for my liking. Bathroom was ok, but shower pressure and temperature were variable. Overall, rooms were acceptable,... More

Chanakya BNR is the No.1 choice for me whenever I am in Ranchi. It is the perfect combination of luxury and economy stay. The service is efficient and staff is warm. Though the mini bar could be better equipped!! Other than that, highly recommended!

We stayed 2 nights in this hotel. Good experience. Excellent chinese restaurant, good service, good breakfast and room was OK. A little noisy because there was a party. Courteous staff. Certainly the best hotel in Ranchi with the Radisson.

We stayed 4 nights in this wonderful heritage hotel on the tip to Ranchi. It was like stepping back in time to the colonial days. It appears predominantly favored by British travelers. It is elegantly situated just next to the railway station. What a place to be marooned in. The staff was both courteous & helpful. The food was excellent.
