Room was at the new wing, but next time I'll try to book one at the heritage part. it was neat and clean and very comfortable.

The hotel has perfectly taken care of a business traveller's basic requirement of 'Bed,... More

The hotel campus is huge and the heritage structure still maintained takes you to older days. The old section mostly houses the banquet and restaurants. Rooms are in the new blocks and I did not get any view during my stay. The rooms are spacious, however, bathrooms are crampy. The location just outside the station has advantages but the stench...

I had been to Ranchi many times and stayed at various hotels including Chanakya. Chanakya is exactly opposite to the railway station. Spacious property. Rooms were really good, neat and clean but require renovation. Staff was very cordial and the service was also good. Specially the food was outstanding . Definitely I will recommend this hotel.
