Th rooms in this hotel are very big, which is a plus and a minus. Too big to be causy but big enough to feel a little bit at home. Their breakfast is not good and not bad. There is bread but the promised plane yoghurt never showed up. The service is mediocre. I asked them at 11.30 PM for... More

We had a learning workshop reflecting on the program interventions in our different organisations. The conference rooms are spacious and aerated. The meals are mouth watering oh the place is hygienic. The wifi is poor imagine I had no internet through out the workshop.

Stayed here for 3 nights and can not really recommend this hotel. To many problems occur during ones stay. There are some positive things about the hotel, the staff being the best asset. Really trying to help but when the hotel is so badly coordinated and managed from the management - a friendly staff cant do much. Rooms are big,... More

The hotel is really big and got number of floors but feel like missing something what city hotel should have. Rooms are very big and sometime difficult to keep the AC managed. There is a big swimming pool. It's bit strange that, hotel is in kind of high security area, where you get checked when you enter to hotel access... More

Looking at this hotel & having stayed, what comes to mind is the fact that this hotel must have had a great time and should have lived to the 'Imperial Royale' name once up on a time :) Sadly, the current situation is different.
