It can be hard to find a hotel in this price range in many parts of India. It's not one of your $10-$15 a night "I can make do" kind of places, and it's not a full on Western amenities/facilities type place either, which, in Indore, would run you a good $120/nt. This place, I believe, was around $40/nt.
My room was spotless and the service was excellent -- almost (but not quite) obsequious. They arranged for a day trip car and driver to Mandu and a fair price, what I suspect is the oh-so-elusive "Indian Price". The room service food was tasty, and priced not much higher than what it would go for at a "I can make do" hotel. Laundry service was cheap, same day, and executed well. The hotel's fairly new looking, with a flat screen TV and a good & quiet a/c unit.
The location is fair. Not bad, but not great. It's a nice part of town, but off on a side street that doesn't have much going on commercially. That said, there's always rickshaws available, or you can walk ten minutes to loads of stuff in a couple different direction.
The place is classy for these kinds of dollars, and it's not antiseptic like some of the wanna-be Western style chains that are around. I would probably stay here again, but I wish they had in-room wi-fi. If you ask, they let you use the front desk computer to check your email, but otherwise there's no net access whatsoever.
