Stayed here on two separate stays in January when I needed to be near the airport. This small hotel is only about a 10 minute taxi ride from the airport. It occupies the second floor in an apartment building on the VIP Road in Baguiati. The VIP Road is very noisy and dusty, and there is a flyover construction project underway. Thankfully, most of the rooms face away from the road, but you will not be fully insulated from the noise.
Receptionist seemed rather grumpy and check-in was cumbersome (some hotels will fill out the government forms for you - not the case here).
On my first stay, I was in a standard room, which was clean, albeit somewhat threadbare and worn. Second stay later in the month was in a deluxe room, which was definitely a cut above the first room. Beds are very hard. Towels that were originally white are now gray. You have a 50/50 chance of getting a towel without asking. The hotel only has about 6 rooms, so despite what room type you reserve there is no guarantee that you will get two twin beds or one king bed. Another quirk: Some of the staff sleep in the large common room that you pass through on the way to your room.
No restaurant, but there is complimentary breakfast via room service (masala omelette, toast and tea). No wifi - to get internet access, you have to cross the VIP road to an internet cafe.
Bottom line: If you need a place near the airport that is basic and clean but without a lot of frills, this should fill the bill. If you do not need to stay near the airport then consider other options.
