“Average hotel, nice location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 January 2013

This hotel is is in close proximity to lal chaunk, dal lake and main market.It was a very convenient location and easily acceseble. Interiors are oridanary and facilities and very basic.

Breakfst is on ot the worst we had in this category hotel.

I would not recommend for family stay is decent for group stay and indivisuals.

Room Tip: try for waterbody facing rooms

Horrible, just avoid, chilling water at night, no heating at night, room service takes ages, restaurant is worse than a road side dhaba. Buffet breakfast is even worse, juices are served after dilution with water.

Room Tip: AVOID this property if you can is best tip.

Residency will probably be liked by people who like being in the city center type of location. For those expecting mountains and peace this is not the place. Best apt for business travelers.We were here for 1 night in the last week of September. The rooms were good - clean and spacious- although we did not get much of a view from there. Service was good with food being the typical north Indian fare.The management had a surprise in store for us and had sent across a complimentary cake to the room, which was a very nice gesture - given that we had a political strike call on that day limiting our touring options!All in all, a good stay.

Stayed in the hotel for 2 nights with family, the location of the hotel is very good, rooms are decent but the service staff is worst. The food quality as well as quantity is far below average.
Breakfast buffet doesn't have much to offer

1. Poor customer service.

2. Very arrogant staff including MD (Mr. Thakur). Will be arrogant even when their staff has visibly mistreated the guest.

3. Poor food quality - Breakfast buffet doesn't have much to offer. For non vegetarians it's only oily omelette. Vegetarians will have to survive on Oil dripping Poori Bhaji every day, which is also not available during short breakfast window.

4. Staff is casually unavailable during breakfast, lunch and dinner.

5. Rooms have insects and bathrooms have spiders and cockroaches. 30% of the lights don't work. Beds are either extremely hard or too springy. Linens and towels have stains.

6. Staff don't pick up the phone, when you call reception or room service. Room service doesn't start before 8:00 AM - so if you go with kids and want to get them milk in the morning; forget it.

7. Rs. 2,500 for deluxe room and Rs. 4,500 for presidential suite is double than what I would like to pay for this 3 star hotel.

I was there in June, and really admire the rooms size,cleaning and facilities.....
We were having six rooms in total and everyone of group member was pleased with the hotel. As it is situated in a mall one gets the facility of nearby ATM's and other shops. Even restaurant was fine having a wonderfull and friendly manager.....
