The impression that you get when you look at the picture at the top of the page is the right one. Don't doubt it. We did. But only for the span of time that it took us to make our way from the reception area (elegant, clean and well-lit), to our room. Then we met a previous occupant whom we later assumed never really left, judging from the way he was scuttling about vertically on a wall with consummate ease that suggested familiarity. He shared the room with his brother who was at that time making ready for a bath (with what we were unable to ascertain because doubt and fear was by then fogging the room's surprisingly small presence). Troubled we asked to be upgraded. This room opened out slightly more but a distant cousin was here too, perched quite still in home of web.
Hungered by this trauma (we were fools and should have expected it), food was ordered only to make an unnecessary trip back to the kitchen with some distant and well-concealed relatives dead in the rice (to their credit, these relatives are quite common in rice containers. To their debit, they are generally asked out before preparation).
I am writing this review at the hotel. I can only hope there are no more of these social encounters.
In time...

Room Tip: Death of the spirit awaits those who choose the executive room. Only death awaits the others.

Ideal if you're looking for a place close to the US consulate.. Rooms were decent... clean.. Staff was helpful.. The hotel is just a 2 min walk to the US consulate.. The in house restaurant was also decent although service was really slow.. Worth the 1300 Rs a night though.

The people at the reception are uncouth, disgruntled and are a disgrace to customer service...they can't even put on an artificial smile!!!

The worst experience I had was when I had called up a month in advance and booked a room and then confirmed it again the day before I arrived, only to arrive at nearly midnight on that day in question to be informed my booking has been cancelled and that no rooms are available! I was livid with anger...being a female and travelling with another female, in the middle of the night...these characters didn't even have the basic courtesy to explain what happened, instead they kept blaming each other...

As if this wasn't enough, they directed us to another hotel and called up an auto...they never gave the auto fellow proper directions and we ended up going from one hotel to another until we finally found the one needed and reached there at midnight. They didn't have the basic manners that even the auto driver possessed...

My advice, use this place as the last option...never call in advance...because you'll be wasting your time and money calling to book in advance...there are women in the reception who can't speak proper English and are rude and uncouth...without basic telephone etiquette...

These people lack the basic courtesy and decency that anyone should possess. You might as well pay 1000 bucks more and go to a star hotel where the staff are atleast decent and amicable.

Hotel is OK, for a days stay. Facilities are not soo good. Overall it was an average experience while staying at this hotel. Food taste was good. Better part of hotel was that it was very near to the US Consulate office. Hotel staff was cooperative.

Room Tip: No Specific Choice
