Seems Old Bungalow building from the 1960s or something I guess converted into a hotel due to the prime location, I partly agree with some of the other posts which say that the cleanliness is not really upto the mark. But at Rs 1200 per night with complimentary breakfast this is what you get.Do keep in mind that this is mix veg plus non veg place so the restaurants serve both! The hotel can definitely be maintained better & more cleaner. All bathrooms need to be rennovated immediately. The hotel is not as big as it appears on their website but it has lot of parking space. Overall okay for a day or two if maintained better. If you are looking for alternatives just drive on station road nearby & you have many Hotels charging less than Rs1000 per day.
