Was conducting a conference in the hotel for 3 days from 8th to 10th December.
Very close to the railway station (less than a kilometer) and lots of conveyance option from rickshaws to taxis but personally prefer the cycle rickshaw as it is cheap (charge you Rs 20) and they are faster than the other means of transport given the horrific traffic on the road outside the station.
The staff are very courteous and go out of the way to help you.
The rooms are quite large (larger than the hotels of its class) with all the amenities such as a tea maker, safe, toiletries in the bathroom, LCD television with a digicom, a clean bed and clean bed and bathroom linen.
The restaurant offers a decent spread and the food is tasty, not too much oil or spices in the food.
Room service and housekeeping are exemplary and everything is taken care of within minutes.
The hotel is close to the main market area helping you with the last minute shopping (in my case). The market area is so huge that you can spend a couple of hours easily in it.
Areas of improvement
The bathroom does not have a tub in which you can sink in after a hard day at work.
The air conditioner switch is located on the wall away from the bed making it a little difficult to adjust the temperature during the night.
No gym or pool for the health conscious.
Overall a wonderful stay, would truly recommend this hotel for a short or long stay. They truly live up to your expectations.
