This hotel charges 10% luxury tax and 9% service tax. Total = 19%. On top of it, if you order food in room they charge 15% extra on food as room service charges. Considering they already levy service tax, it is tax applied twice. Don't get fooled by room rent displayed on their website. Multiply it by 1.25. Toilet was...

Stayed for two nights. The staff at the reception were very courteous and nice. Rooms were well maintained and clean. Service was also very good. The only disadvantage was a lack of lift/elevator in the building where we stayed. Had to go up and down two floors by the staircase everytime. I think installation of a lift will go a...

When I came back from court early on Thursday, 20/10/2016, my son impulsively asked if we could go to Shimla. As he is a non demanding child, we readily agreed and the next morning, we set out early in our own vehicle. My son drove most part of the journey and that was a big relief for me. Though the...

I am very disappointed with this Hotel and staff. They are extremely slow at service be it dining or any other facility. My husband and I were on a business trip and this slow service caused us precious time for our schedule. They represent government and instead being quick, they cause an embarassment. I wont come here again nor would...
