This is probably best option in Ranchi in mid range. It is walking distance from Railway station. Hotel property is good. Room are spacious along with all basic requirement. Toilet need renovation through it is not bad. Foods are delicious through price charges on higher side. Complimentary breakfast is well served . Free WIFI seep was good.
