It was not even fair for what we paid, poor Maintenance, Hot water was in all taps without control, very weak or No WI-FI, No Lift had to climb to 4th floor with the luggage. Had a tough time staying there. only consolation was the food in the restaurant.

I have been staying regularly at this hotel and must commend the attention to details of duty manager Mr. Sharma. I feel like I am home away from home. Well done and keep it up. The new improved menu from the Asian fusion restaurant is simply mouth watering and the breakfast is good. A real value for money
