Breakfast has regular South Indian fare, fruits and bread etc. The staff is courteous, friendly and helpful. There are common areas of each floor with TV, fridge, kitchenette and couches. The...

Smart Haven gives a live definition for its name. It is simple and calm. The interiors are maintained good. Undisturbed by the noise and pollution, it gives a comfy stay midst the busy city. Breakfast was of south Indian and additional demands were also addressed. Overall, a serene stay for a subdued weekend.
