Reviewed July 24, 2013

if incase you are coming to the hotel by auto youneed to walk all the way up to the hotel lobby with your luggage. This itself is a task and the security keeps looking at you as if we are there intruding their privacy. Hotel rooms stinks and takes some time for it to get cleared through A/C vent. Reception staff were not polite/answers are not guest friendly. Food Quality to be improved. OMG. Don’t use room service as it takes time!!! Time Management was not maintained. You will be frequently disturbed by asking your check out timing and if you are lucky the hotel staff will check you out without prior notice as they want the room to be given to others. They Don’t have the courtesy to ask nor guest friendly at all.
I will not recommend this for families or those who are looking for a comfortable stay

Checked into this hotel on a business trip and stayed for 2 days. Take around 45 minutes from Airport. Rooms are spacious and next to famous Taj mahal hotel ( Better to have dinner there if you are looking for variety). Breakfast has good spread. Rooms are clean and neat. Pool is on 5th floor and as per my guess it is not in usable state. Good part about this hotel is its is above Brand Factory so last minute purchasing option is open. Try this hotel for stay in business locality of the city or else you have better hotels to stay for the same tariff.

Room Tip: Nothing specific

Our hotel stay was excellent over here. I must say Sandeep Mathur was very helpful throughout our stay. He took care of every little detail and made our stay memorable. The hotel is centrally located. The food was good. Rooms were big enough and the room service was also good.

Even a budget hotel will have right things in right place.

The so called "high speed" Internet was a very slow, you had to restart the internet every 3 minutes.

Worst part was the A/c which did not working at all. When complained; the technician replied that “Sir –this is how the A/c will work in our Hotel. If not happy, please vacate to any other room”. We moved to an other room and the story was same. A/c did not work even there. We decided not to call the Technician because he was of no help. Called the Front Office, OMG – They took their sweet time to respond. To add... breakfast was only average, room service was poor, house keep was the only good thing which can be rated 3/5... REST all can be rated 1/5

Hotel was Good and Clean and Neat
Reception staff were not polite/smiling. Abrupt answers given.
Food Quality to be improved. OMG... WHAT A DELAY !!!
Time Management was not maintained. Room Service need to upgrade in timing
House Keeping was Good. A/c not well maintained.
Consider to keep the Pool Open on Sundays
Mini Bar was never filled; until asked for and it took 1 hour to fill the Mini Bar
Where frequently distrubing on the final day; keep asking the checkout time.

Dear Mr.Siddesh,

Saw your review just now we are extremely sorry that the staff at the front office was not polite to you .Its the guest the review that makes us come to know of our fallacies and that gives us the chance to interact with you and carry out necessary corrections at our end.Kindly do us the honor by visiting us again so that you will experience the change that your view has helped us to make.We are indeed indepted to you for putting up your views on the trip advisor.The hotel has installed VRV( variant Refrigerate Volume) air conditioning system and is very efficient one but needs guidance by the front office staff which might have missed your attention.We have made necessary arrangements to make the pool to be open on Sundays too as per your suggestions.Please note that the Minibars are stocked on request.And as you are aware.Corporate residential conferences are all" economy" based it becomes necessary for us to keep tabs on all such amenities witch the corporate offices demand.

Traveled to Hyderabad for official purpose and had a unpleasant stay in this hotel. Room AC was not working properly and late room service (orders placed are served after 30 minutes). The Front desk staff are not polite and had a terrible stay. They even close the swimming pool on a sunday( hell the do maintenance on a sunday???) I would not recommend this hotel to anyone....
