Hotel location staff are good. However F&B Manager needs to learn hospitality. Overall B/F buffet is not value for money. Very less choice when you are charging around 1K. We get awesome spread here in bangalore 5 star hotels.

Cons - 1) Not enough power...

A pretty ordinary hotel although I must say that the staff were fantastic. True, the waiters could be a little inattentive and needed chasing all the time but the rest of the staff were charming, friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean and well provided but pretty average as hotels go. There were a few good dishes in the buffet...
