“A good hotel”
Reviewed October 31, 2013

This is one of the better hotels in Allahabad. It is conveniently located and is spacious. The rooms are of good sizes and well furnished. The garden gives a wonderful touch to the entire building. The service could be better and the food is decent.

Good hotel and in good location. Rooms are big and service is good. Restaurant is very good.

Some rooms have hard beds which are difficult to sleep on. We changed 3 rooms an finally settled in the 3rd choice on day 2

We had an issue with AC in our room (being centrally connected), the staff may shut this off to save power. Finally they shifted us to a room that has independent AC

Room Tip: Check with bed and AC before checking i

Very average hotel. Not too well maintained. Reminds you of an old property. Rooms average. Staff average. Food- average. Service- poor. Bathrooms- old. Nothing worth remembering. Not for a second time at all :(

The hotel is located at a good place first glance at the building and it looks like a small property but once you enter that impression
Fades away it has a good and a warm courtyard now for the rooms they are not modern looks dated done up with ply wood the food is just average they dont serve you any complementary breakfast the service does not justify the price we paid

Very basic 3 star at best. Definitely not worth the price we paid for it. Poor service and rude staff. Wont ever think of going back here. This is a classic example of a bad product wrapped up in a glossy outer. The appearance at first is appealing but the service is extremely poor.

For example, I was asked to pay for a full breakfast for a cup of tea that I gave from my breakfast to my driver.

The food was average in taste and quality and service at the restaurant was very slow

As a single woman traveller, the topmost criterion for selecting a hotel especially in unfamiliar locations, is a feeling of safety. Following close behind is cleanliness and good service. Grand Continental has all of the above. Highly recommended especially with the off season discount.
Suggestions for improvement would be quality of food. Something lighter would be better for hot, summer days.
