“bad, dirty and noisy hotel”
Reviewed 23 March 2014

Under renovation, staffs are not friendly, not helpful but hungry for tip only.
We rent a van in the hotel but they cheated us with un polite & ignorant driver, over charged at the end too.
The room is small, breakfast is very poor, this hotel spoiled our last 2 days in India.

The staff was literally pathetic. they were very very offensive. the hole is completely different as seen in the pictures. of course they are highlighted to the extreme possible. the supervisor, service boys and the entire management was uncooperative. probably the biggest mistake i did by booking this hotel looking just at the pictures. do not just do not stay in this hotel, its not even close to worth your money else you will be writing a review like this.

Stayed here on Feb 2011. Nothing was okay with this hotel except for its location. Rooms were small, bathroom was terrible. The stairs were very narrow & steep (not for elderly people). Service was below standard. This place is a trip spoiler. Never going back.

the pictures on the net do not represent the exact state of the rooms. the entrance is fine, the staircase is a disaster and the rooms are basic. the linen was clean , bathrooms renovated recently, but still a bit over priced. but its very close to park street and thats the only reason i stayed there.

Horrible experience in every aspect! Not only that the place is overpriced, but they even lied to us with the bill and we had to pay considerably higher price. The staff are constantly begging for tips and the service they provide is far from pleasing. The room was very dirty and extremely noisy. The breakfast - worst thing ever! The internet was not free and was very slow.
DO NOT STAY THERE!

Room Tip: They will try to convince you to pay extra for a better room, but don't.. no point!
