I spent 15 nights at Smart Haven and should say that overall it was very satisfying.Few reasons why i would not rate it as excellent: a.) The complimentary breakfast that is served daily is repetitive and kinda gets boring for the taste buds.

Smart Haven gives a live definition for its name. It is simple and calm. The interiors are maintained good. Undisturbed by the noise and pollution, it gives a comfy stay midst the busy city. Breakfast was of south Indian and additional demands were also addressed. Overall, a serene stay for a subdued weekend.
