We booked this on the basis that it said it was central and it was apparently good quality but...
The hotel is not a western quality tourist place and though it is central to a business area it is not anywhere near where any tourist would want to be, which is Park Street. It is a low to middle quality commercial hotel for lower level Indian commercial staff who pay 2000 rupees a day (we were complaining at the desk while one was paying), not the 6000 or so rupees advertised. Despite the photos on site the rooms are small and squalid. Our shower did not drain, and they didn't or couldn't fix it, but we had no hot water anyway. The rooms must stink because our room had mothballs everywhere (even in the shower) to disguise the smell. The bed had a hard mattress. The breakfast is very, very substandard. The staff are friendly and helpful but this does not get over the fact that this is the standard of hotel rooms I got as a poor backpacker years ago and after complaining I had no trouble having the room rate halved to just over 3000 rupees and I could have got more off it but just wanted to get out. In short, a rip off. And note, the air conditioner is old style with one setting (high) and very cold so we couldn't keep it on and the room fan blew a gale even on low. The location is noisy on a busy main road and the surrounds are awful with the outlook from the rooms onto virtual slum buildings only a few metres away. Avoid.
