The positives - -Location is fine, but it's not easy to find a decent non veg place to dine outside. -Smaller than comfortable TV, but with good channel selection. -It scores on looks - it's a fine building from outside, it's got a decent reception and foyer. -Staff seems fairly trained. What gets on your nerves - -The WiFi is... More

The interior of this hotel is lovely. The glass elevator superb! Rooms are good with all the facilities. Food is ok! There's a cute rooftop pool but the water is not very clean but not too dirty either. The location of this hotel is good and autos are available readily. Overall, a good hotel and not too expensive.

Toilet broken, swimming pool water extremely dirty and a health hazard. Ordered room service, a Club Sandwich and what they served has never seen a Club Sandwich, looked like some kind of dog food from a can tossed on some bread.

The lady even told us that we shall not get buffet breakfast instead of saying that since our booking does not include breakfast, we are welcome to have breakfast on chargeable basis. 3.... More

Convenient location, generally good hotel with reasonable services. Rooms are fairly good with decent bathrooms and there are two restaurants and a bar. Food is just okay but service is very prompt. On the whole the hotel offers great value for money.
