“Not an ideal place to stay while in Mt Abu”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2011

Overall it was a disappointing experience. Rooms were not clean, toilets were in bad shape. We had dinner in hotel once and food quality was below average. Staff was friendly but that's not of much use if the basic amenities/facilities themselves are not in place. In this price, you can surely get a better deal elsewhere.

Stayed here for a night in a delux room, I reached quiet late in the evening and was wondering how the rooms would be, but it was quiet clean however they were bit small and little cramped. They have tried their best to make it look like more than a budget hotel with their interiors and facilities like wall mounted LCD TV and Fridge services. The Room service was excellent could get food within 10 mins of ordering, also the person at the reception helped us to go around all the places as this was our first visit. The best part of this hotel is it is very close to the City center and market place. The value of money to the room quality is not that great, however the hotel in Mt Abu double their prices during the peak season. If you dont have an option of staying in other hotel you can still prefer this one for the price they offer.

First, let me say what I did like about this hotel. There is a nice flat screen television with lots of channels. The bathroom also was decently clean and had luke warm water, although it took a while to heat up.

However, the hotel room at Hotel Chanakya made me feel dirty. I was tempted to rub hand sanitizer all over myself in order to sterilize my body from the sully surroundings. Literally the bed had stains all over it. There also were large strands of black hair on the bed. Additionally, it looked like a baby had had an accident on our blanket and then smeared it around with its tiny baby hands. I was offended with the lack of cleanliness. It may have been acceptable if the hotel were cheap, but the hotel was expensive. For what we paid (around 75 U.S. dollars!), I was expecting something higher-end. Unfortunately, I would not recommend this hotel to anyone.

We decided to celebrate our wedding anniversary in Mount Abu. After rigourous searches and several enquiries we decided to stay in hotel chanakya. The hotel has pretty decent ambience and offers good service. The rooms are nice and cozy, equipped with basic required facilities. The hotel staff is co-opeartive and polite. Location wise, it is walkable from the main market. The only drawback was the hotel menu which was quite limited and restricted. However, despite limited items on its menu card, the food offered was quite edible compared to other hotels and restaurants in Mount Abu. I would recommend this hotel to vegetarians...

Very good hotel for those people who want a low budget hotel. Location is near market and bus stand which is positive for this hotel. Service of the hotel is great in relation to the price you pay. Its a true value for money hotel. I visited during November 2010. You get good deals if you book online. So guys please check it out before you book it.
