Luckily I booked the deluxe room which was spacious with basic furniture and glass windows on both the walls. The small budget rooms might scare u but I saw them renovating each room as of now. Please don't book any rooms below deluxe, rather, book the ones on the higher range. Ask for view rooms though you might not able to see much because of adjacent buildings. The location was superb, right next to the Mall (Nehru road, Robertson road) with many popular restaurants- a minute walk away. However, our room/ bathroom showed signs of age and wear but we stayed mostly outside, and hence, didn't suffer much. The hotel staff were excessively nice, and, just for that reason (and the location), I might come back here again though I would choose a room on the top floor. The staff gave me good deals when I hired cars through them. I felt safe in the hotel and the locality. I would usually stay out till 8-9PM in the evening. While arriving please do call the hotel to come and pick-up your luggage. While departing, vehicles stop right in front of the entrance to pick you up.
