I had a large suite room where you could hold a small meeting or gathering- living room like space. But hotel is lacking in cleanliness, well needing an upgrade. The carpets in the hallways are filthy, the common area floors not well polished. The front desk staff mean well, but don't smile much, handle money exchange as if it stresses... More

The hotel is a good place and everyone in Ranchi seems to like it as well. The property may not be as luxurious like Radisson Blu, however, is more popular. The best part is the location of the hotel. It is right opposite to the railway station. The food is also great. They have 2 restaurants. The banquet halls are... More

BNR Chanakya is a nicely done hotel, close to the Railway Station. Rooms will score 8/10 Location takes a leap at 9/10 Breakfast is the highest scorer at 9.5/10, with a variety of options. Food gets 8.5/10 Overall, it's a nicely done property, sprawled over a big area.

Stayed here from 14-17 Jan'15. Overall a very good hotel. Specious and clean rooms, good food. But I think food was little expensive as compared to similar kind of hotel. Best part of the hotel is open spaces. Service is good.

This is one of the top staying options in Ranchi. Its just opposite to the Railway station but little far from the airport. There are two parts, the older building from the Bengal Nagpur Railway days and the newer building, though both parts are connected. Significant free space inside. There are two large lawns that can be used for morning... More
