    Ideally situated near the railway station. Relatively clean, but could do with more careful dusting as fine dust was sticking to the headboard and TV. Bathrooms ware clean but without clothes hanger. Rates range from 600,800 and 1300 without tax.

My in laws checked in the Hotel and after a while the hotel personals tried to get money from in laws who were senior citizen citing that they don't have any affiliation with Yatra.

    The bed was comfortable enough, location was good& it had a lift. Nothing grand about it. No mosquito net on room window which looked a little too closely at the wall opposite, so very little light. Bathroom dank& in need of a good scrub! Very noisy in the morning from a generator somewhere in the near vacinity.

    Basic accommodation, relatively cheap at 660R. Two very narrow beds pushed together to make one not very comfy bed. Bit dirty and grimy, but the light in the bathroom was so dim you (thankfully) couldn't see much in there. Bucket shower with lots of hot water. Worse thing was the noise - it was LOUD and constant....traffic noise and corridor...

    We arrived early in the morning, were told a double room was 660 INR for a double room with fan, so we thought, great, the sheets looked clean so might be ok, the bathroom wasn't that great and we had to have bucket washes, and it was a noisy hotel, but that was manageable. Biggest problem was the beg bugs....

    This hotel was by far the worst we stayed at in India. Dirty sheets, dirty room, bathroom had NEVER been cleaned, shower was a hose coming out of the wall. Reception staff were appalling. so unhelpful and rude. We asked for a towel and they bought us some that were so dirty we refused. The only good thing was that...

    To begin with the photos above (unless tripadvisor has removed them) are not of Grand Central Hotel. I picked this hotel out of the L.P which lists a number of places in the area. With retrospect I probably should have checked some others but I was tired and couldn’t be bothered traipsing around. My 420R room was not particularly clean....
