“Cockroach Eeekkkss !!!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2014

Not the best place to stay for the tariff they charge....its a government hotel....so you know what's gonna follow....the rooms are not upto the mark...the service is ok...they have renovated (i think) their ground floor....ie. lobby and restaurant..but the rooms are definetely not good.....quiet small in size....
If you have work at sector 17 than it is the place to stay...otherwise look at other options !!!

Its a government run hotel (CITCO) and so for every deficient the staff replies "govt hotel he, aisa hi chalta he". Hotel management doesn't reply over emails, they still rely on paper/oral communication. Infrastructure is not well maintained. Food served at restaurant is average. Felt the rate to be on higher side. My room was showing its age. Just for location the hotel is getting business.

Chandigarh is known to have many small & good boutique hotels , which are better to stay and would cost just the same.
Appearances are often deceptive , fits the hotels bill completely.
During day time , the hotel from outside looks huge but the building easily reflects that it has not been maintained completely. However if you visit during nighttime , with the lighting , the hotel looks decently attractive.
You will be duped into booking this place seeing the size , the neat lobby , the nicely done restaurants , the attractive pool , as they are no short than any 4 star hotel.
Infact even the breakfast spread is decent & general food quality is fine .
Lets put it this way :
If you plan on visiting the hotel for maybe a meal , a dip in the pool or to laze around the property , it is definitely worth it. .
But if you plan to just stay in the rooms , I would say give it a miss.
The rooms are old and sad. Completely opposite of what your first impression of the property will be ,once u step inside.
The bed linen is torn , the wardrobes have wood chipping off , the washrooms are clean but not very inviting.
I had to get my room kettle changed because it was filled with dirty water and wasn't cleaned. Though the staff replaced it immediately on my complain with a better one , it still reflected on the general cleanliness levels of the basic amenities.
To summarise , it is just an average property.

We had a garment fair in his hotel and being a participant, i and my colleagues stayed in the hotel for 3 nights.

On a very serious note.... this review may not be able to portray the true pro and cons of the hotel as the exhibition with so many participants...... had put severe stress on the services of the hotel and any hotel in such circumstances would not be able to maintain a high standard!

Hotel is located in sector 17 which is supposed to be a prime posh location of Chandigarh. My colleagues had checked in and hence i was saved from the hassles of checking in. We were in room no 502.

The lobby is fairly decent. with a huge seating capacity.

The room allotted to us was spacious with a good comfortable cozy bed, a study table and a small balcony. The best part of the room was that the cooling (with outside temperatures touching 38 degrees) was superb. This is one of the very few hotels i have witnessed..... which has central cooling system and yet the cooling ... for a large room ... and that too in peak summer hot day.... did such a fantastic job. Hats off to the cooling maintenance team. The room had an LED tv with an adequate choice of channels. The bathroom was a little compact but no complaints.

For most of the 3 days we had breakfast, lunch and dinner at the ground floor restaurant called 'Bazm'. The food quality was average... to be honest definitely needed an improvement. The restaurant service was very poor even when there were very few guest!

The hotel has a swimming pool but we never got the chance as were occupied with our work.

Overall a decent hotel!

I stayed at this property once on new year eve with my friends and twice with my family. The rooms are comfortable but the rooms are old, rooms require make over. Otherwise its good for a night stay. Rooms are big and spacious. Its a value for money. Staff is good,cooperative, Restaurant is awesome. Food is good. Please renovate the rooms.

Room Tip: Choose higher category rooms. Insist on offers. Choose city facing rooms.

A nicely located property,rooms are tolerable,but Hotel's policy of forcibly serving Dinner is not less than extraction,the hotel includes Dinner in room tariff.

The food quality and service is pathetic.

Why does Hotel forces Guests to eat at the Hotel,if they are so confident of its Culinary offerings,let them detach forcible Dinner charges from Room Tariff,and attract the guests with good food and dignified service.

Moreover guest should have freedom to eat wherever guest likes,but owing to the fact dinner charges are extracted,guest is left with no choice.

Room Tip: Fifth Floor was refurbished
