We stayed in this hotel for a day recently, and we booked 3 rooms. You can't ask for a better location - right opposite the railway station - and the hotel does look modern, automatic sliding door, etc. I was reminded of the GINGER hotel chain. I think the promoters did want to build a modern business hotel in this temple town. Even the rooms are very neat and modern, especially when compared to the other hotels in this town - this is not surprising as this hotel is only a year old. The rooms are very pricey for this city - we could get only the exec deluxe rooms. The staff were also very eager to serve. However, maintaining a hotel of this quality is difficult, and a few areas of concern - big cockroaches, water leakage from central AC which literally made the marble floors very slippery and dangerous, having to ask for towels, soaps, blankets, etc., slow room service, and rooms are showing signs of aging. So for the price the hotel is charging, one would have expected slightly more. I hope they maintain the standard.
