Reviewed 6 March 2014

Do not ever stay in this hotel. No hot water, unclean toilets and bathroom, extremely poor quality rooms (including AC), uncooperative staff. Choose because of location. Advise: walk 10 meter ahead and go for Sarvana hotel or Victory. If you are desperate, please check the room yourself and then make payment. I had bad experience. DO not trust the attractive looking entrance. Looks like it was a good place 10 years back...!

Room Tip: Walk 10 meters ahead and check Sarvana hotel. its budget + good quality.

It is a very untidy hotel. It had a lot of bugs on the bed & insects all round the room. We had to vacate the hotel within few hours after we checked in. Service & hospitality also was not good. It defiantly is not a place to be in. The hotel has no value for money nor the guests. The washroom was dirty & a useless TV in the room.

Stayed: November 2013, travelled with family

The room is filthy and smelly. Parts of the ceiling plaster lay on the bed and the rest of the rooms is dilapidated, too. And you do not want To open the closet due to its own molden smell. The toilet/bathroom stank as if never been cleaned since opening. Of course, the inside of the bathroom door was covered with mold.
After locking the room door, there were 2-4 cm range of movement. It was the first time, i used my luggage locks inside a Hotel room. I daresay, the room is just beyond repair.
Every orc hole/hollow would have been more homelike.

The staff (at the reception) was not just unfriendly, lazy and declined to help in any matter, but flippy and outrageous.

Please, I beg you not to do the same mistake than me and stay out of this mess.

Place is good if u wanna crash for one or two days. No proper amenities available. rooms were quite clean. easy for quick movements within the city. good place to get urself a quick wash. not a place to stay for long trips. the employees were quite friendly. came for an interview and left the same day.
