Very close to city center and public transport system. The rooms were large and clean ,well ventilated,all facilities are working well and the bar is good and has very friendly staff. They also have a gym with well experienced instructor. In the morning I had breakfast ..it was a very healthy breakfast with plenty of options.

We've been twice and staff was great especially the reception.. Absolutely superb very helpful! The only thing I reckon the hotel should improve it's about the restaurant which is on the roof, if someone would love to dine more than twice it might be difficult to have only Indian food so they should upgrade with some different dishes

A good place for economic stay. My room was large enough for 2 people. It had all standard amenities. Breakfast was nice with a good spread. Surprised to see Idly and Sambhar. Ambience was good and quiet too.
