“Not so good”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

Check in process was fine, staff not too interested tho. Room was clean but there was constant construction noise from 7am until 9pm - seriously. Sure you spend time sight seeing, but with the crazy noise outside its reasonable to want some peace in the hotel...

Service phone outside room constantly ringing but no one answers it. Staff here very big on loitering for tip and give you a bit of a look if its not what they want.

Eg, no hot water in the room, we ring to advise reception, someone comes up and turns the tap on and off, that's all, no change in the situation, water still cold..and then hand out for a tip???

Room Tip: My advice if you want a great room.. Walk though the glass doors to the adjoining hotel where everyt...

This trip was beautiful only because of this stay. Rooms are very nice in the price range. Buffet breakfast was awesome. Room service, cleanliness, environment inside hotel were just superb. Check In was very easy & hassle free. Nice co-operative staff. Only issue was with hot water supply.

The hotel has good clean rooms. Food is acceptable, however if you are looking for western cuisine, it is not up to the mark. The staff at the reception are kind of indifferent and don't show much interest towards the guest. After checking in the guys at the counter did not bother about asking the bell boys to help me with the luggage or guiding me to the room...you are on your own. It's not that the staff are impolite but they lack the professional touch.

The hotel is quiet, safe, and very comfortable.

The service is great and the food was surprisingly good

I'd stay here again without thinking twice about it, especially with its great rate.

The location is pretty far from the main tourist areas but it is also a good thing because those areas are very dirty and the power goes out constantly.

Great hassle free stay!

Although not very handy to the holy Ganges, you are better off being further away here and getting a bit of space between you and the twice daily crowded rituals at the ghats. This hotel is clean, secure, reliable and has a good restaurant, a buffet is served for each meal, so variety is good. The laundry service is excellent - same day and good quality ($2 got me super clean cargo pants after the colourful festival of Holi left them very second-hand). Plumbing is fine, shower hot and electricity supply is not too bad. Even the shop in the hotel lobby is of decent price and quality. I would stay here again.
