The main guy who runs it, Raj, is great, but not super keen on the rest of staff. The place itself is nice, good common area with the rooftop restaurant but not super loungey (no sofas, etc). Costs roughly 350rupees and prob worth around that. Decent stay.

Thank you for the feedback. Actually we are in process to change our restaurant so not so many sofas but now we have almost all the new sofas to make the restaurant comfortable. Thank you once again.

Room was quite big and light. Downside was that one of the windows was broken, so it was quite noisy at night. Good for the price. The food served on the rooftop terrace was delicious, one of the best meals we've had so far in India!

The staff is nice. The rooms are nice. The building may seem small, but the rooms are well accomodating, big, comfortable, and well priced. It is conviniently placed in the blue city next to the market and attractions. Great view! I highly recommend staying here.

We went to shivam for dinner just by passing through and then we decided to move to the center of the town as we were staying in the new part . A bit off from the center. We did not regret it because it was cheaper with good service and very central.
