Just on the opposite side of the Bus Stand.... the rooms remain lit by the Bus Stand High mast light during the night. We booked a suite but it was nothing of that sort... no room service is available.

Stayed October 2012, traveled with family

Centrally located hotel.rooms were neat And clean.the guy in the reception was quite helpful. The was no restaurant in the hotel but a lot of good restaurants near by.they had geysers in all rooms. Parking for 2 cars was available.but walkable distance to the lake Bryant park and coakers walk and the main city shopping area.but there is a lot of scope for improvement.

I booked a 'Triple Premium' room through makemytrip.com for our parents & one brother. I was shocked to listen from them that they were given a small dingy room having only two beds & asked my brother to sleep on floor. Later on, when, I called makemytrip to explain then they simply put my phone on hold for long & gave me nonsense response like "hotel has given 'cot kind of mattress'". I simply cant understand this as when I booked a TRIPLE PREMIUM ....it should have three beds at least.
The whole night became a nightmare & made their trip a sad one.

Apart from this there is nothing in this hotel. Even makemytrip rate it as single star but it is not even like a normal budget hotels. The only good point is its location as it is near to busstand.
I recommend never ever think of this hotel.
