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

For a weeks stay in Ranchi, this is definitely the best place. I attended the Sharad Sangam at the Yogoda Satsanga grounds which is in waliking distance. The train station is just across the road - so perfect for arrival and departure. The staff were fantastic and the rooms so well maintained by the cleaners. The streets of Ranchi are... More

Heritage wing of the hotel is best by far. Gives a complete colonial feel. Sitting in the verandah in the old reclining chair is awesome. Breakfast left lot to desire it's very mundane & has very little variety. Located right next to the station & not very far from the main road makes it very convenient. It no doubt is... More
