Reviewed September 1, 2013

It was my second stay in this hotel in last 15 months and compared to the last visit (based on what I decided to stay again) this was a total mistake:

The room was ok but the washroom had broken tiles, non working flush and no hot water.
I have to call them to fix the flush
Coffee and tea ordered was lets say horrible
Internet stopped working at 10 pm at night and after repeated calls to the reception was told it will work in the morning when the madam arrives!
No slippers or for that matter a hair comb was supplied.
Towels were very old and in a bad stage.
The hotel seems to be dying with 1-2 people to take care of it and no professionals to say the least.

I will not recommend this to anyone!

We were seaching a hotel near Satyabama University and came to know about Gharana Service Apartmwnt but no rooms were available there so finally found and booked The hive, adjecent to Gharana Apartment. Its very good hotel with only 17 rooms and fully homely atmosphere with free v high speed wifi. All the good food court are near by. MAINLAND CHINA is very close to this hotel.I will suggest to change the glow sign board of this property to locate easily.

I was on a business trip, and chose this place as it was very close to my workplace. To start with it's not a hotel, rather a "poorly" serviced apartment kind. I spend 30mins to find this place. The room size is very small (something like 10x10). The place is stinky, AC's are not good, food is pathetic, bathrooms are not clean, showers are not working.... There don't seem to be anything that's working.

"We had a marvelous stay in THE HIVE Hotel. Wonderful interiors, very good service, very reasonably priced too for a luxury hotel. My advise is to put a Name Board for people to locate easily and to add more varieties in the food.

What I liked about this place is the cleanliness. The person in charge is very friendly and helpful. They could do with some trained staff. Breakfast is good. The location suited me as it was very close to my place of work.

This place almost spoilt my vaccation, there is nothing worth for paying what they charge. The beds were not arranged well, wifi was chargeable, food was pathetic, service was dull, staff was confused.

This place looks shabby and enriched with some smell. Not worth of stay even for free.

Suggest the owner for a revamp of hotel, thte staff and the attitude towards hospitality.

Room Tip: Avoid all rooms, don't stay here
