Location is about 10 min walk to Mall Road. So it's good in a way that its a bit away from hustle bustle. Maharaja Feel,wonderful lawn and the football stadium view. Very polite staff. Small rooms but well ventilated. Would recommend everyone be it family,friends or couples.

We had stayed in the premier category suit room which indeed was very spacious and clean. The location of the hotel is quite good considering the fact that it is a 10/15 minutes walk from the mall road and still offers peace and privacy. The best part is its garden area outside the dining/lounge which overlooks a football ground from... More
