The best part about the place is that it is very renowned. Being the oldest hotel in the city helps. Giving directions becomes easier. The rooms are elegant and well done. The restaurant serves good options and all cuisines. Really enjoyed my stay.

The hotel is terrible and the staff are too rude especially the main manager. They have no manners how to talk. Please dont go to this hotel. The food is moderate , old built. I dont know why people call Kanha Shyam the best hotel. This is the most terrible hotel I have ever visited.

Hotel Kanha Shyam is a renowned name in Allahabad and supposed to be one of the best hotels there, but frankly speaking I did not like it too much as the rooms and hotel interior is not modern. It is old and needs a renovation. Rooms are spacious but again their interior needs a touch up.

The tiny hotel bar had no external windows or ventilation and allowed smoking making very hard to stay in the resulting "fog". The reception staff were unfriendly...

Not a good first impression, although the restaurant staff was more warm and welcoming. Our room smelt of cigarettes even though we requested a non-smoking room. We found the shower to be slippery overall we highly suggest to stay here

After a long road trip to get there, we were met by unfriendly reception staff. Not a good first impression, although the restaurant staff was more warm and welcoming. Our room smelt of cigarettes even though we requested a non-smoking room. We found the shower to be slippery.
