Hotel is situated in the residential calm area (though not far from main road ) next to the Hathroi fort , with many more hotels around it . Staff was helpful and service was good . It has a rooftop restaurant with OK food.... More

Pros - walking distance to the train and bus stations (around 1km), reasonable distance to the pink city also. Very warm welcome and helpful advice on local transport, well presented room with TV and fan, bathroom had the the best shower I've had in a month of Indian hotels. The WiFi was fast and reliable.

The ambiance gives a heritage feel and the fort view is delightful in the evening. Try and get the room at the rooftop, will help you spend beautiful evenings in solitude. The flipside is the average quality of food.

We stayed here for a night. The place and room were a good value for the money. However, the staff were not very professional. I asked to go to the night market. The one guy didn't even know if there was a market, and the other guy said that there was. So he said something to the tuk tuk driver... More

I think we have replied these kind of reviews over and over again. How is this review related to our hotel? As far as hotel room and service is concerned you have rated it well.

Hi, Our stay was nice with good spacious clean room. Nice rooftop restaurant like all the other hotels nearby. Price was good for room . Only problem was high 40% commission taken on train tickets but I suppose this is what happens when you book through your hotel.

I never expected a room as good as this in budget range. The hotel is situated away from the main road , hence less noise pollution. The stay wouldn't have been easier without the help of Ujwal who immediately addressed all the arrangements quickly. Roof top restaurant is an ad on. Overall, my stay at this hotel is excellent.
