To start off with, a got a very good deal where I had to pay INR 4800 only without breakfast (roughly 65 Euro's) for a night which is not usually the price. It is much higher.
However, the hotel is superb. Located close to metro station and a bus stop it can easily be reached from any part of the city. The hotel is old but grand on the inside. We were allowed to check in 2 hours before time and we asked specifically for renovated rooms as I had read in some of the reviews that they have old rooms which are not good.
We got a renovated room which was big and had a small balcony which oversaw the market below and also a part of the grand palace.
The staff is very cordial and discharge their duties with utmost professionalism. It was very impressive to see this kind of service.
The hotel is a short walk from the grand palace and has shopping malls, casinos and restaurants around it.
The room also came with 2 bottles of water, 2 beer cans and 2 coke cans complimentary which again was a surprise for us.
The highlight of this hotel is the wall of fame displaying autographs of eminent personalities who have stayed here. Just to give a teaser, the list includes Stephan Hawking and apparently Madam Curie and Albert Einstein visited this hotel in 1911 to take part in a conference.
Overall, we had a real good stay. Loved the hotel and its history!
