Not recommended. The room was small and dirty for what it was worth. During the 3 nights I stayed there, no house keeping- not that I was expecting a high class service in a so called budget hotel- no one came to even sweep the floor. They changed the bed sheet on the last night after much request. The men...

After few months travelling in India I can say that this is the worst place that I have stayed in whole india. Dirty, tiny rooms, stained bed, high prices and dirty talking staff. This is the Capital guest house.

I just wonder, how such a low quality property is there on cleartrip. I visited it on this durga pooja with some of my friends. We booked it online and did advance payment. The management staff have absolutely no ethics at all. Plainly they denied us to offer the rooms on the price we booked. They will try to harass...
