We checked into this hotel for a night's stay in February. Trust me, it is one of the worst hotels I have ever stayed. The room was so dirty with old dusty carpets. The curtains were torn. There was no provision for hot water in the washroom. The toiletry kit had such cheap items considering the high room rent they... More

The Hotel is a Shame in the Name of a Hotel. The Rooms & Upholstery are Shabby and dilapidated. I had to literally beg them for the Aircon Remote control. Even the Bsaic toiletries were not there in the Wash room. The linen in the room seemed and looked slept in.

The response from reception on calling about the rat was poor. There was so much noise at midnight cos of some fight between two gangs in the bar. 2 am we shifted... More

The Checkers was a decent hotel and conveniently located but the management has just let it go waste. The place has turned pathetic and on my last visit the lobby was being used for a marriage reception with loud music. The rooms were damp and had make shift air-conditioners blocking the entire window. The only saving grace was the host... More

Rooms are big with large reception area hotel looks good when u enter, but once u settle down in the room it's not good. Aging rooms no proper maintenance, and not clean. They can do better if the renovate this property. If u get rooms for below 1500 it's OK or else avoid.

The only good thing about this place is the location.Right in the middle of the main road and close to bus/train stations. The first look of the hotel says half the story. Not very inviting. The rooms are small. The hallway and lobby smell of dampness. The bathroom did not have hot water and the tap felt like it would... More
