This centrally located hotel is not very large, in fact its best described as compact but has all the services you need. From a strong sturdy wifi system in the room, to great service and polite staff, this hotel has a lot to offer. Their breakfast (which is complimentary) consists of a menu ranging from eggs to order to chole bature and parathas. Its simple food but extremely tasty. The hotel has one main Chinese restaurant which is quite average and for the food they served quite expensive and honestly not really worth it. They have however tied up with two neighbouring restaurants which provide room service to the hotel. Both of those restaurants serve excellent food. A special mention to Don Giovanni that was open for 24hrs and served anything and everything. It's very rare to see a restaurant be able to whip up any dish from any cuisine and also a great initiative from the hotel to tie up with these restaurants that will deliver to the rooms directly.
They have complimentary snacks in the room which is a lovely gesture and even though water or soft drinks taken from the mini bar is chargeable it isn't exorbitantly priced as other hotels when you pay for the mini bar.
The only real drawback to the hotel is their old style bathroom fittings need to be updated a little and they need to do away with the mug and bucket system. They have a nightclub downstairs and charge Rs500 for a single person despite staying at the hotel which I thought is ridiculous. It's one thing to charge a person but not if they are a guest at the hotel.
Hotel Samilton was very conveniently located and I had a very pleasant stay there. i do recommend it to everyone.
