          The rooms are spacious and the location is in safe neighborhood. The wifi speed needs improvement. The hotel staff needs lot more training in attending to the guests. This hotel has no other facilities other than a restaurant and bar attached to it.

          A good place for economic stay. My room was large enough for 2 people. It had all standard amenities. Breakfast was nice with a good spread. Surprised to see Idly and Sambhar. Ambience was good and quiet too.
