With limited facilities, it is a decent budget hotel. The hotel is easy to locate with the T Nagar Club as major landmark. The rooms are neat and tidy. The restaurant is closed and I had to go out for food. There are several food joints within 500mtr radius including Sarwana Bhawan. The hotel also serves complimentary breakfast.

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
