“Good place to stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

I have been to this hotel for quite sometime and as far as my experience goes its a good place to stay for couple of days. The staff are polite although many of them speaks telugu you can get around easily. The rooms are spacious and the toilets are clean. Breakfast gets borin as they repeat the same stuff day after day. The 'vadas' are good. Room service is really good. Its located in the centre too.

Room Tip: Choose the double occupancy you would be in a treat and choose a room facing away from the entrance...

We arrived @ Minerva around 10pm on the 20th Jan stayed one night with family , Checkin was Smooth .. This is a Small and petite Hotel , not huge and a lot Better than some other bigger Brand hotels in Vijayawada....

Cons- Parking may be tricky , but they have Vallet parking to take care of it .

Pro's - Staff were courteous , Restaurant staff were very polite and food was also tasty - i would recommend this hotel for cleanliness and Food ; Breakfast was more South indian (veg only hotel) and not continental

Room Tip: Prefer a higher floor as you have restaurants on the first floor.

Decent place to stay. Hotel staff is co-operative. Rooms and washrooms are clean. Did not face any issues. Breakfast was quite okay but only south indian food was available in the buffet. Value for money hotel.

We have a corporate tie-up with this hotel and my booking was confirmed two weeks prior to my planned stay. When I arrived at the hotel at 5.30 AM, I was told that there was no room available and was asked to temporarily relax in "Suite-1". Suite-1 is a one-bed room with no other amenities and since it was a matter of "15-20 minutes" of waiting, I agreed. Two hours later there was no sign of my room or any communication from the reception. After I gave the reception staff a piece of my mind, they offered to let me use the "suite" - a real one I suppose,"for an hour" which I refused! The next option was use of a room which was repaired/painted the previous day, which I refused too!!! I told them to allot my room that was booked for me...

Finally after I spoke to the manager and after a few calls from my office, a room was "magically" made available at around 8.45 AM, more than 3 hours after I first arrived in the hotel! Needless to say, the rest of my stay was overshadowed by this experience and I did not enjoy my stay at all.

There are a number of good hotels on MG Road and I would recommend that you avoid staying here even if you have a confirmed room reservation!!

Room was good. Space of WC in my toilet was placed in very small place causing problem. We had dinner in 1st floor resturant. Food was not so great. Service was not so fast also have some language problem.

Room Tip: Try to get a room opposite to road to avoid sound.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012 via mobile

I was on an official tour and me and my colleague were well received by the hotel staff. We were upgraded too for the next category room. The room structure however is kinda odd. For such a big room, the bed is just in front of the main door which could have been avoided. There is no life size mirror in the room. Considering that this room was upper category, this basic feature should have been included. The washroom was stinking oddly and it continued to stink for the 2 nights stay inspite of reporting. Thankfully being on office work, I was away from the room for the whoe day. Overall not a great experience. The breakfast is stirctly veg and eggs were really missing which is a common need of all indians and offcourse foreigners who regularly visit vijayawada as tourist destination. Fruits provided in break fast were not the best... apart from location and convinience factor to stay here, one has to ignore many basic things. Small things missing are many! Larger have been managed somehow....

We spent 2 days at this place recently. The hotel is centrally located to all the major shopping areas in the city. Rooms are clean and contemporary (to an extent). Courteous staff add some extra points to this place. The restaurant attached to the hotel is also pretty decent. If you are into south Indian and veggie food, then the restaurant attached is a very good stop.

I would recommend this for anybody who is willing to pay a small price for a clean hotel in Vijayawada.
