“Good hotel, but would go to another next time”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013 via mobile

This hotel is kind of a good hotel, but they have a problem of internet again that it is cery slow.
I have stayed in another hotel in ahmed abad and was better in internet and rooms.

But if u r looking to pay a decent amount come here.
The bed and food are good.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

We chose this hotel based on the trip-advisor ratings. When I booked on-line they confirmed bookings without requesting credit card details (this was a pleasant surprise). Everything from the airport pick-up to the front desk efficiency was superb.
Admittedly like most business hotels the rooms are a bit small, but the rooms are fantastic in all other respects.
The buffet dinners and breakfasts are also extremely good. Despite the high tariff for the hotel, I have no hesitation in saying that it is worth every penny.

Room Tip: If you are travelling with your family choose inter-connecting rooms

The pricetag is pretty high for this hotel on SG Road given the small rooms and lack of facilities.

The rooms are small , they don't have a ceiling fan (surprising for a supposedly eco friendly hotel to not have something which reduces A/C usage) , the hotel is short staffed most of the time , the laneway in front of the main doors is single lane meaning cars can't wait too long for passengers without getting rude honks from the drivers behind.

On the positive side , the staff are eager to please , the rooms are tech friendly , the restaurant is Ok.

Overall , not worth the money at advertised rates , good hotel if you can snag a deal.

Thank you for your feedback. As the general manager, I have been appraised of your experience. The hotel is renowned for its quite room experience as no traffic noise is audible inspite of being alongside a major highway. The engineering & housekeeping teams are investigating your room experience with the aim to make the bathroom experience as quite as possible.

Thank you for your positive ranking on the sleep quality.

We appreciate your review as it the best way we can receive constructive and direct feedback as a means to improve our services.

We apologize for the inconvenience caused and look forward to your visit again.
