Competent Palace is very well competent compared to its peers.. Good business class hotel in Selaqui.. Rooms are well maintained.. Amenities are ok.. Washroom size is small.. Room service and restaurant is good although a bit expensive.. Food is good.. Only glitch is that the swimming pool is not functional
