Very comfortable and safe hotel to stay. Loved the place a lot and if I got back I will stay there again. Very close to the bus stand and many shops which made us comfortable. The driver took us safely for sight seeing as well. Good customer service.

The most arrogant staff I have ever come across. Inhumane way of dealing with customers. Arrogant attitude. Asked me and my friends to get out of the hotel thinking because the rooms were full. It's ok if they couldn't accommodate us, but that doesn't give them any right to talk to people like that. Highly unrecommended. Just because the hotel...

There is a restaurant serving good food, WiFi facility in the lobby, travel desk, elevator, room service and limited car parking facility.

Booked room in advance before one month. Staff confirmed to give room on arrival but failed to keep promise. Money minded. They have given room to others and failed to give for booked person. Then what is the meaning of booking for them.

Located at a prime spot, close to the city central with plenty of good restaurants and shopping centre. Worth every penny, clean premises and friendly staff. Room service makes it more convenient. A prime hotel with all basic amenities.
