The hotel is situated very near to zion school and in front of Kodai international. Hotel is descent and has good facility. Hot water is provided 2 times a day and they have a restaurant also which serves very good food. If you are on a budget hotel search then you can go to this hotel.

I stayed here along with a friend from April 28th to April 30th 2012. This probably is the worst location for a hotel. The last 0.5 kms is what I can best describe as "surface drainage". Forget driving, walking this stretch is like walking on tight rope. If you slip and fall you will stink like a drainage for next...
