I jumped off the train and straight in the door of the Chanakya BNR and despite having made a booking, check-in was extremely challenging and took over an hour. The building and grounds are fabulously historic looking and the room itself was large, with a tall ceiling and lounger on the veranda. Breakfast was nice, but it was the staff... More

Stayed at this classy hotel for 2 nights on my recent visit to Ranchi. I was actually booked into a different hotel, but spotted the BNR as I climbed the railway overbridge - and the irresistible pull that such heritage and classy hotels have took over. Placed a call and confirmed that rooms were available and found myself walking into... More

This is an elegant property which has quite significant elements offering you a heritage view. With an easy to find location, proximity to the Railway station, the open space, grand entrance, gardens, the interiors are all unique and this combination is not so easy to find in a place like Ranchi with limited options. We chose this as the venue... More
