Spent 2 nights here and although it was quite a typical budget accommodation seemed too expensive for what we got. (500rupees for a double room, fan only).
We arrived here at 10pm without a booking and took the first room we were given (no. 301).
It was big enough and had pretty mosaics and a large mirror on the wall which was nice. Also had a view of the Jagmandith Temple out the window.
But it didn't feel clean and the bathroom was small and grotty. Lots of damp and there was a strange netting in the corner which covered a hole which led who knows where.
The curtains barely covered the windows so had a safety pin to keep them together.
The electricity was intermittent and there was no hot water.
There was also building work going on all day long as they're extending the building to the left of the hotel.
Plus we had to ask for a bat to be removed from our doorway before the door squashed it.
As a positive, the location was good and the rooftop restaurant was one of the highest in the vicinity so had good views.
We viewed a lot of hotels looking for an alternative and I guess it was average for what we saw but Lal Ghat was 100 rupees cheaper and had good views from the room across the lake. And we eventually stayed at Pratap Bhawan which was newly decorated and much cleaner for the same price.
