by website, the building looks good but its very horrible. there is no air circulation in hotel and in any room. they provide very small rooms according to their rate. its location is at the entrance of the city but inside the city we can easily get very good hotel comparative to this one. their room quality is not match with hotel but match with lodge only.

Room Tip: never choose this hotel in future.

We made our trip during the peak season (end of may) when hotel prices peaked exorbitantly. This hotel gave us an excellent staying experience at that price point. THe room was clean and the room service was pretty quick too.

Have taken a standard room to stay, hot water is available only from 7-9 AM, even the toilet seat was broken in room 305. TV was not working, on complaint I got response that it doesnt work on gen-set power, eventually realized that TV is out of order and got it replaced.

If you order anything for room service, be ready with cash, they dont accept the payment at time of check-out. even you may prefer to have lunch dinner outside.

Arrangement for Local sight-seeing tour was good..was charged 10% premium than market rate..

Prefer to pay 500 more and stay with better room and services.

The hotel is situated very near to zion school and in front of Kodai international. Hotel is descent and has good facility. Hot water is provided 2 times a day and they have a restaurant also which serves very good food. If you are on a budget hotel search then you can go to this hotel.

Room Tip: •"Corner suites are large and sunny"

When we arrived there was no one at reception. The receptionist was outside the hotel chit chatting with staff. We were received with blank faces. The feeling I got from the receptionist's face is.. his salary is constant and arrival of any guest would only add work for him. There are two big posters at reception.

1. 3% extra if you are paying by card
2. Check out time is 9 AM.

Room was ok. There was no drinking water in the room and glasses were dirty. However, when we asked for hot water, service was quick.

Hot water is scheduled for 7:30 to 9:00 am. However, it is never on time. Dinner is good but if you need non veg, you need to order at least 4 dishes and in advance (few hours). We tried veg dishes and it doesn't matter which 2 or 3 dishes you order, all have the same taste. As I said, taste is good but it is same for all dishes.
