Good facility located opposite to railway station. Different functions and celebration are going on and make it live. Front desk staffs are cooperative and staff in restaurant are also very attentive.

I visited lot of times in Ranchi and stayed in so many hotels there. This is the best hotel I found there in terms of Service, rooms, parking area and huge infrastructure. Foods are very good. I will prefer to stay here again.

My favorite at Ranchi since 2008. Was completely renovated in front of me and offers a large open space. Well made rooms along with some nice and friendly staffs. Breakfast is good and their conference halls are best in ranchi. Will rate as best property in Ranchi.

The Hotel is very beautiful. But the rooms lack proper ventilation. Without AC very difficult to be in there (because in Winters I don't think anybody uses AC). Food is really very good and tasty.

Prices are I think on the higher side by Ranchi standards but if u live outside it's quite reasonable for the quality that they serve . The waiters are a little under... More

This hotel is adjacent to Ranchi Railway station. Very good ambience, pleasant setup welcome you as soon as you enter hotel main gate. Reception person needs further training on courtesy. Room was good, clean and tidy. Bath room was neat. Food was tasty and room service good. It was pleasant stay.

I would rate the hotel "Excellent" had the gym be more equipped. The area of the hotel is huge. So, the amenities can be expanded. Rest of the things were good and satisfactory. The morning and evening walk in the hotel premises was so pleasant.
