“Wonderful place to be !”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

This is my second visit to Imphal. The stay in Classic hotel was a very pleasant experience.
Particular mention to all the staff there. They are just exceptional.

Rooms
----------
Fairly big and clean, well kept and comfortable. I was staying in a non-ac room on the second floor. The floor gets a bit warmer probably due to the restaurant in first floor (in some rooms). The toilets were big, clean and dry. They maintain the place neatly

Food
---------
The best veg spread you can get in Manipur is here. The breakfast buffet is generally good. Dont forget to taste the pineapples from Manipur. Especially during the monsoon season.
My personal favorite is Mayan Mayan Singju. A native manipuri vegetarian dish. Apparently, fish is very good. Since am a vegetarian, could not write experential reviews on that.
Do taste their kichidi as well. Tea is better than coffee there.

Cafe and Music
--------------------
Rita cafe is the best place to socialize in Imphal. All important meetings happen there and the most happening place in the hotel. Sat and Sundays, you have live bands. I was thoroughly impressed with the passion and quality of their music. If you are there on a weekend, dont miss the live band in Rita cafe in the evenings.
Food is very good. The chilli cheese toast and the coffee in particular worth mentioning


Staff
--------
I have travelled far and wide and the staff are some of the best I have met. The front office, room service, restaurant, cafe or logistics were all exceptionally good. They are so genuine and pleasant. Wonderful people. The management has done a great job in putting together these people. If i get a chance, will speak to the management and understand how they manage to select and retain such wonderful folks. It will be a learning experience for sure

Travel and Logistics
---------------------------
The staff exactly know the customer's preferences and guide accordingly. The rates are fair. You get very relevant and valuable advice based on local conditions. Even the drivers and support staff are extremely supportive. Not everyone communicates well in English/hindi. But you will be able to manage.

I was there in Imphal during last week of June on a family trip. I enquired from my friends and everyone suggested me to stay at 'The Classic Hotel' only. My experience is really very good. Hotel location, air-port transfer facility, credit card acceptance, cleanliness of the room, quality of food, service, behaviour of the staff and overall experience were excellent. Everytime I remember this beautiful city, I cherish my experience of this hotel. And of course, next time whenever I plan to come here, I cannot think of staying anywhere else other than 'The Classic Hotel'.

Imphal the capital of The state of Manipur in India is not where you would expect to find a very well run western style hotel.
The hotel is impeccably clean ,light airy.air conditioned ,comfortable and inexpensive.
The speak English and are extremely polite and helpful.
The dining room is regarded as the best restaurant in Imphal and the coffee shop cafe is a refuge from the difficulties of a westerner coping with life in a remote Indian city.
WiFi is available the only downside is the possibility of occasional power failure.

Room Tip: It is necessary to book due to lack of other appropriate accommodation .

I stayed here for 4 days. I have stayed in many hotels all over the country.I can say that it is probably the best hotel if we compare it in terms of price. Since, AC rooms were not avalilable, I had stayed in a Standard Non- AC room, the tariff for the same was Rs.850.00 plus taxes.The value for money is very high, since the rooms are very clean, well maintained and hygienic. apart from this they offer complimentary breakfast. The menu for it huge and the quality of food is supreme. I dont think anywhere in India you will get all these for just Rs.850.00 per day. Apart from this the staff is extremely polite and helpful.

I will term this hotel as one of the best in India as this price. Kudos to the management for achieving such a remarkable feat and that to in a small town of Imphal.

Stayed on March 25, 2013. Read very high reviews but my experience was pretty average. On plus side, tariff was extremely affordable. Nice buffet breakfast. When i checked in, only one room was available on ground floor- near coffee shop. During night time there was such high noise of generator that it disturbed my sleep many a times. This was highly frustrating and negated whatever positives i had noticed for this hotel. i was informed that the mgt is aware of this problem and looking to solve it and the noise is limited to a few rooms on ground floor. Atleast this should be informed to customers well in advance.

Overall experience was thus average only.

I was in Imphal on assignment in December 2012 and used TripAdvisor to scope out Classic Hotel. I contacted them over email and was pleasantly surprised to receive a quick and cheerful response. The staff reserved the room without advance payment. The hotel arranged an airport pickup at a reasonable charge and my colleague and I stayed for four nights. The staff are courteous and helpful. The complimentary breakfast buffet menu, though standard fare, offers ample choice. WiFi is charged for one device but that's great considering that across Imphal a 3G network is either absent or unreliable. The pastry cafe is great and for a reasonable fee they packed us a nice hamper of tasty sandwiches and quiches for the return flight. Room service is responsive and attentive and the laundry is fast and efficient. Imphal is a charming town but one haunted by insurgency, and the hotel is in a safe location with robust but unobtrusive security. We commuted around the city in a taxi arranged by the hotel. It's a veritable oasis -- there's no other hotel that matches up to The Classic Hotel in terms of location, amenities and service.

Room Tip: Rooms on the east side on a higher floor have a better view.
