“Good hotel, not-so-good management”
Reviewed 22 April 2012

spacious, well maintained rooms. staff may overcharge you for services that you never used. reception won't keep its promises.
Nevertheless, a very good place to stay if you don't have much to do with the reception.

Room Tip: The studio rooms are good, avoid the pool side rooms.

Since there is no option between average and very good rating i am rating this as very good but this is good hotel. The room is nicely designed with zarokha etc. and very specious. Staff is courteous and helpful. Check in took almost no time and the food served is good. The only problem was mosquito and they should really think about the same. Amenities in the room were not up to the mark and tea coffee making machine was not working , also ac was not up to the mark and i really do not know if it was working at all. Room atmosphere was good with traditional Indian design. Location is also good in civil lines area which is one of the best area. One can choose this hotel as not much options are available but still performs 70% of the price you pay.

The hotel is very good. The rooms are big, cleanly maintained, good prompt service, excellant Non-Veg, Veg and Chinese Food, evening live gazals free while dinner. Swimming pool is small but overall very good experience to stay here. Complementary breakfast is again very good and lavish enough.

Room Tip: Rooms facing swimming pool are better rest all is almost same.

Hotel is average! Room service -Pathetic . Even for giving water in a Room -a Big Task for them. Generally taking 30 minutes for delivering drinking water. LCDs in Room a big relief. But this time they have given Side room with No viewable View. Food quality was good. Breakfast menu was fixed for all three days i stayed there. Try Fish Pakoras --delecious.

Reception staff-very coperative.

Room Tip: Tell them to provide a room with a good view -i.e swimming pool , main road etc.

Room service is bad. Once found spider in our water jug.

Room Tip: Take rooms which are facing pools if not using WIFI of hotel Very powerful AC hence ask for double...
