One thing you must know and accept about Chandigarh is, it doesn't have a centrally located, good, budget hotel. The term 'good' is relative but it generally incorporates 1. Good location, 2. Good service, 3. Good food, 4. A good night's sleep, 5. A good tariff & generally a good time spent. Metro 43 is centrally located. Period.
Besides the location, there is really nothing much else to talk about this hotel. The central location is more of a bane than boon as the constant traffic ensures you don't sleep well. But then this goes with every hotel in Chandigarh that falls on a corner of Chandigarh streets. The rooms are just about fine & the same goes with the bathroom. The corridors leading to the rooms are so narrow, you have to wait for the guest/s from adjacent rooms to get in so you can move out/in of your room. No elevator so you better don't take a heavy luggage along.
I had to spend a sleepless night here as the wise men in the hotel thought dead of the night is the best time to burnish the floor tiles of the restaurant. Every time I'd call them to complain they would turn the machine off for a few minutes & resume. Certainly not an acceptable way of treating guests.
The breakfast is not served through a buffet & is limited but then its also fresh. So you can't really complain much. The same restaurant though has a salad bar in the evenings. Even that isn't too appealing, you may try one of the numerous restaurants around the hotel. The farthest one can't be more than a KM away.
Being in Metro 43, you are quite close to Sector 17 & fountain plaza & everything you may need (ATM, Medical stores, Restaurants, Laundry, Groceries) are all around you. But for the tariff they charge, it certainly isn't worth it.
But again, as mentioned before, there is absolutely not a single budget hotel in Chandigarh that can assure you an all round satisfactory stay. Maybe you save enough or convince the boss to book you in the newly opened Marriott or the already existing Taj or the Bella Vista in Panchkula next time. I'd stay here only if I had no other choice.
But yes, they had a very responsive manager (Mr. Thomas) though.
