“Very average room”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2014

We just stayed for a night as we were travelling to Mahabaleshwar. Reached in the evening and had to check out early in the morning, but still they charged 1200Rs.
The Room was very small but quite neat. The bathroom was below average. The walls and door was dirty.
Though the looby looks good and nice, the room was just average I would say.
Service of the staff was not bad.
The reason I chose this hotel was it was close to the railway station and bus stand.

Room Tip: Maybe choose a AC room which may be bigger and cleaner.

It has got locational advantage but suffers from good maintenance. Rooms are small, but not kept well as they badly need wall painting. Food is a problem, but there is a good dining hall close by where one can get excellent Gujarathi thali. Close to Railway station. The parking area is too small and can accommodate two cars. I understand if more cars come, they will make temporary arrangements. The room boys are good. But the manager is slightly introvert.

Recently I took a room in this hotel as we had to refresh ourselves from a tiring overnight train journey before catching up a flight in the afternoon.. The auto driver at Railway station took me here telling that the rent would be Rs. 800/- but after reaching the hotel about 2kms. from the railway station,I was told that it would be Rs. 1200/- and the driver was pleading with the desk manager for discount. It was all a drama enacted by them and not knowing what to do, I had to accept as I was very tired and I could not go in search.They even took 100% money in cash telling that credit card is not acceptable. The auto driver took Rs. 50/ for this 2km. ride which was also supported by the desk manager. Even then , if it was a good room , I would not have bothered too much. The room was not clean, bath room was horrible and the bed was full of bugs or some insects and created rashes as soon as I hit the bed for a small nap. Ultimately , I had to take a bath in cold water to get over the problem.No hot water came in the tap.
The hotel has no restauarant but I was told that they can get the breakfast from a nearby restaurant.I ordered for the breakfast at about 7.30 am and it arrived only around 8.45 am after several reminders though I had ordered for a common item and a cup of tea. Ultimately I decided to leave the hotel . A hotel staff saw me checking out and escorted me to the reception eventhough I had no luggage to talk off . On reaching the reception he immediately started demanding tip for his chaay pani. Two other staff at the reception also joined in the chorus. At the reception the manager was watching all this and was delaying giving the reciept till I gave the tips.Finally , I managed to get out of the hotel and came to the auto waiting for customers. The hotel staff who had already troubled me at the reception were hinting the auto driver to charge Rs. 400 for the 12km. drive to airport. Ultimately I went to the nearby main road and was able to take an auto for Rs. 120/- to the airport. I have given all these details so that Trip advisor users never get chated by this hotel. Never go this hotel.....

The rate for the room is quite a few notches higher than it should be and the rooms were not upto the mark on the couple of occasions I have stayed in this hotel--have stayed here a couple of times but whether it was Jan 13 last I am not very sure--
Had got an auto in the early morning to go to the airport and it seems the security guard had a commission of nearly 50% against the fares which is terrible

This Hotel is located near Railway station around 2-3 km. The location was good. I only prefer for those who came Pune for business purposes. All the market is near the hotel. Services are good and the employees are also cooperative. It was very old hotel. You can get auto very easily.
