                6.6

                Breakfasts were good, esp indian food. Room was spacious and clean with splendid view to the city from balcony. The room was clean regularly. Location is convenient, and noise from the street did not disturb us almost.

                The hotel is quite old and demand renovation.Staff speaks English badly except one person. Reception does not work properly, forget things like ordering taxi, can not calculate money correctly, you need to double check always (as in each place in India by the way :). Breakfast was promised to start at 8 (which is quite late in comparison to other places we stayed before), and never started at 8, normally 8.30.

              • Family with children

                Reception staff were unpleasent and uninviting. They could do with a course in customer relations.
