I had a very bitter experience overall. Let me start with some of the positives. Accessibility to shopping, good restaurants etc. You can book an Uber or Ola at anytime of the day or night and still get them. Room was spacious and facilities were fine. Having travelled a long way I requested the staff to provide me my room... More

It was not equivalent to the number of stars that this hotel claimed to have. Breakfast spread was pretty good. Wifi connection was often unreliable and the password expired every... More

The staff at reception were extremely rude and did not... More
