This must be the best budget hotel that you can find in Shimoga. I did call them up and confirmed the availability before i even travelled from Bangalore. I reached Shimoga in the early morning 3.45 AM (volvo from bangalore) and reached the Hotel in an auto (25-30/-). Though all were sleeping, they were happy to wake up and welcome me as soon as i arrived and provided the room quickly. The rooms were really big and it was very comfirtable. The bed spreads were clean and neat and so was the room. The hotel also has 1 veg restaurant and 1 non veg restarutant + bar within . The room costed me 780/- (with tax) per night and I stayed there for 2 nights and i would say that was the best that you could ever stop in Shimoga town.

It is 1.5 Km away from the bus stand and 3.5 Km from the railway station. As it is a very popular hotel, the auto drivers would easily drop you there..

Have a good trip

Room Tip: i did not get a chance to choose between rooms ; but i assume it must be good ones

The room was neat. About 1-2km distance from the centre of the town though.
The room service was prompt and good. Food was ok. The place has a little rustic look with ample parking. Residential surroundings.
The receptionist took a thousand rupee note and a few minutes later insisted that it was only a 500 rupee note. I ended up paying 500 more. So please be sure and mention the amount before handing over to the reception.

Probably one of the best hotel of Shimoga. Definitely value for money. Halted there for a night while going to Goa. Hotel is quite clean & bed is good. Very clean toilet. Cannot expect more for 850 bucks. Even the restaurant food also taste good in a fairly reasonable price.

Room Tip: Take the roadside room because it has a nice balcony

We travelled by road from Pune with my wife and son. The room was spacious, AC was comfortable & the TV had the right cartoon channel to make my son happy.
The toilet was clean . The laundry & room service decent. The hotel has a decent vegetarian restaurant from where we packed up for long drive. For the Price of approx Rs 1200 for an AC this is definitely good value. Yes, a good car park too & some one to wash the car . I was happy to get into a sparkling clean vehicle after a long drive the previous day .
