“Clean rooms, weird business practices!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 December 2011

We booked our room on Makemytrip, and it clearly mentioned that breakfast was included. I showed a printout of the booking while checking in (as is standard practice) and the receptionist had nothing to say about it.
In the morning though, they created quite a bit of fuss about breakfast not being included. Anyway, I didn't pay, I just walked out half an hour before checkout since my hotel was already paid for.
Apart from this incident, the stay was rather good, but on the downside, it is a bit far from any of the beaches.

The stay at the hotel was pleasant. There was not disturbance from any stall. I love the fact that every thing is self service here. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable, what else would you need.

We stayed at this hotel for two nights. It is a very basic and neat hotel for this price. Breakfast is not included. Wifi is not free. Good location. Bathroom is clean and the decor is to the point. Good for business traveler.And be ready to carry your own luggage till the room after check in because this is just a basic hotel, u see.:)

Very Compact but clean Hotel. Good Service. Overall ambience and facilities are very good. Very good Restaurant and Bar. Few boutic shops and cafe coffee day outlet for 24 hours at reception makes it very convenient to have late night dsicussion/chating with friends. Overall good budget hotel for small stay. Would be very good for business stay.

Room Tip: Rooms on the back side of entrance are good as there is a free space and few trees

Not very Luxurious...
It was just a place where you can stay and not expect great dining, swimming, room services, etc.
It is like those Budget hotels or motels that serve the basic amenities only and charge also accordingly
If you are planning a holiday with family, suggest select a better Hotel for stay
