Rooms are bright and cheerful. The place is very hygienic. We booked it for ₹1100/- per room. They provide many facilities such as free wifi, complimentary breakfast, a/c room, tv. The location is in the heart of the city. All the famous casinos are located nearby. I have also attested room photos.

terrible service, far away rooms from city avoid at all costs, very dirty too. The opposite side to this apartment building has a lot of stray dogs and these are very aggressive at the night. There is little to no food too, the staff is aged, old, angry and dim witted.

we had a stay for 4 days 5 nights. Rooms were dirty and the bed sheets also. going to the washroom was something you would want to forget. staff behaviour was also not friendly, on requesting them to change the bed sheet and clean the washroom they refused.

Where do I start? The locals don’t know where this place is. The signage outside the hotel reads some name other than Sand Castle. The picture (only one) available on the Internet has quite cleverly been edited so as to crop out the poor surroundings. Forget the surroundings; even the “unintended” lawns haven’t been looked after since ages. Those 10...
