One of the best properties in Ranchi, no doubt about that, especially after its renovation a few years back. Has a well laid out breakfast in the mornings. The food is amazingly good, though I have tried only the vegetarian dishes. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. The room service can be improved a little more. Overall a pleasant stay.

The best hotel in Ranchi, no doubt. Although responsible for the reception are cold and uninviting, all other (security workers, restaurant staff and especially room service), the least important, the worst treated by those responsible for the hotel were the most friendly and welcoming.

Chanakya BNR must be one of the most interesting hotels in India. Amazingly spacious amidst the chaos of a typical Indian city centre. Its located right opposite the Ranchi Railway station and offers an ambience that is reassuringly soothing. The food and service is good, but its the beautiful layout and sheer luxury of space that makes it a must... More

We were allowed early check-in without any fuss. The Front-desk staff were very courteous. With quite a huge ground Chanakya seems to be the hot favorite for wedding events as it had hosted 4 weddings the night before we arrived and more were scheduled in the following nights. The rooms however were more or less quiet. Our room in the... More
