“Expensive but OK”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2013

The hotel is having almost all the facilities. It is conveniently located. It is closer to the railway station and shopping centers are very close by. The food is good. Service is OK. The ambience is decent. The pool is small and shallow.
The only part which hurts the most is the facilities which you get at this place can be availed at lesser price in hotels close by.

We stayed at the hotel for work for 2 nights and found the hotel quite simple yet nice. Clean rooms, courteous staff, very good food, all in all a decent place. However, i wouldnt really choose it for a holiday - only because there are no other facilities/amenities as such. The location is excellent. Central and surrounded by shops and restaurants.

The hotel is not good for the value of money. Bath room tap was leaking, water was spilling on the washbasin side, Room was giving a smell, AC is not central, whole night the central air circulation system was making a big noise in the room.
Breakfast was good

First room was smoke filled (even though labeled non-smoking) they promptly changed rooms to an even larger room - smoke free! Staff and room service was fantastic, very prompt upon request. The gold star of this hotel though is it's restaurant. We ate there about at least twice a day for the 5 days we were there. Never had a bad meal, excellent options for Americans that can't handle all the indian spice! Gorgeous entry area, rooms could use a little overhaul. Overall great hotel, excellent restaurant.

Room Tip: We stayed in the wing that was in the back. Downside is one the nights they have parties (which can...

Highlight was breakfast.. I never had such a good breakfast in Indian hotel.. :-) rooms are spacious.. open area around swimming pool is quite relaxing place.. rooms are good.. room service is ok.. location of hotel is quite good.. when I visited, renovation was going on.. there is no lift for old building.. it looks like huge living place converted into hotel.. so there are variety of rooms.. please ensure you speak with reception up front about the possible options of rooms..

...but someone please teach the Room Service guys some English! It took me 3 tries to get some toothpaste - I got a few toothpicks to begin with. And running hot water supply is erratic.

Room Tip: Rooms next to the pool are less spacious than those in the main block.

spacious, well maintained rooms. staff may overcharge you for services that you never used. reception won't keep its promises.
Nevertheless, a very good place to stay if you don't have much to do with the reception.

Room Tip: The studio rooms are good, avoid the pool side rooms.
