In the category of budget hotels this hotel is excellent. It may not have lot facilities but whatever this hotel has to offer is nice.
Pros: Very neat and clean room (including corridors/lobby leading to rooms). Bed sheets and towels were clean and bed was comfy. bathroom is nice and well made, all quality fittings.
Asoke metro station is 2-3 mins walk from hotel.
Restaurant is 1 min walk which serves decent food at reasonable price.
Terminal 21 mall is on the opposite side of the road.
Tour n Travel agency is 1 min walk from hotel. i booked a tour with them and they were very polite and helpful.
Staff at reception is well trained. almost every morning i would ask them for directions and they were polite and helpful. i made few requests like late checkout and it was not a problem.
Free wifi in room was very fast and had good connectivity. i uploaded about 1.5 gb of pics to google drive and it dint pause or drop. made internet calls and voice quality was excellent.
Average: Room is small - but hey its a budget hotel, what do you expect. bathroom was well designed for that matter.
Cons:No phone in room to call at reception. Although i dint need it during my stay but it would be nice to have it.
However, they had a option to get food delivered from a restaurant near ashoke metro. i felt that restaurant was bit expensive so never tried it.
You can hear people talking in lobby.
All in all if you are looking for a budget hotel with good connectivity this is a very good choice.
