I would rate it as "very good" among hotels in Shantiniketan (although just "average" for hotels in India) owing to (i) excellent location in the center of the town (ii) decent service and food; (iii) (elevator to rooms; (iv) recently remodeled and well designed restaurant. On the other hand there is scope for improvement. No hot water was available. Had...

We stayed at this hotel for one night. Clean rooms and bathrooms. Food is very average. Staff is helpful. The hotel overall lacks professional management eg they can't guide guests easily on what to see and how to go about it. Restaurant staff makes silly mistakes in taking orders and billing. Front desk is very rigid about check out times....

Room and hotel was fine. Food was pathetic and terrible. Full of oil in every dish and heavy salt. Was unable to consume food. If food can be avoided stay was fine. Else hotel is located ideally. Disappointing stay, as I fell sick after food consumption.
