Decent for the price. The rooms are very small even for two people. I had my adult son and we needed an extra bed. That did not provide us sufficient room to walk. Good location in terms of access to places but there is heavy traffic. Decent restaurants at the hotel. The oriental food was great.

Stayed in 312 room no and only problem I faced was the shower area turning into a puddle of water due to bad drainage. Complaint to the mgmt, hope they take action. Buffet breakfast is decent. Special thanks to Priya for...

I and wife stayed here for a few days from 28th Jan to 31st Jan 2017. Generally a very good experience. Rooms are good but the key card gives trouble all the time. Sixth floor rooms are good. Buffet breakfast is quite good. Front office staff attitudes can be improved.

We originally were staying on 5th floor but we had a small mosquito problem which was quickly rectified as we were moved to the 9th floor executive rooms. The rooms were very nice and comfortable. The cleaners were very kind and did a fantastic job and I would like to specially mention Saranraj who was both friendly and patient.
