Stayed here for a day as the hotel I had booked did not have check outs as expected. A clean budget hotel with friendly staff, as they allowed me to check in at 2 am. Room and toilet were small but clean. They didn't have any lift and hence had to use the staircase at all times. No wi-fi and restaurant facility. Recommend only if there is no other option in the vicinity

I've been staying in the Princess Inn for almost 15 years and have found the location excellent and the staff very helpful. It's centrally located only one block off MG road, walking distance from the bus and train station. If you want internet access in your room you might try room 104 - a large corner room directly above reception. They do a good job with the laundry. Rooms are clean and adequate, particularly for the price/location.

Room Tip: There are large rooms just off the stairwell which work well for families or groups.

Rooms are pretty average, as would be expected with the price, but clean and suitable. Staff and general atmosphere lovely and helpful. Very good location, near to town and the bus/train station. No wifi in the room, but works sufficiently in the lobby. Also no restaurant, but tea/coffee/water available. (Plus a nice smart restaurant in the hotel opposite (with beer!))

Stayed: January 2016, travelled as a couple

I stayed at the Princess Inn for eight nights over New Year and paid 625 rupees per night for a single room during peak tourist season. The room had a double bed with a thin, soft pillow plus a fan and a tv with a limited choice of channels. The attached bathroom had a toilet and cold shower. The service at reception was excellent. They were able to organise taxis to get me stress-free to and from the isolated football stadium 12kms away during the SAFF tournament as well as give me guidance on where to find places. Highly recommended.

Close to the train station

Unreliable wifi - appalling if you are trying to achieve something over the internet - posting on Facebook, sending emails. Doesn't reach rooms, certainly not on 3rd floor. You find people sat on the stair well trying to get wifi.

I chose a single non-ac room due to the cost of a/c. The room was situated on sunny side of the building so walls heated up - not the logical choice - makes more sense to make these rooms a/c as the a/c can cool the room down. Very keen to upgrade to a/c room but even extending my stay to 4 nights did not convince them to give me an upgrade discount outside of peak season. If the standard of the rooms had been higher, and wifi been reliable, and had their been a pleasant space to lay out my yoga mat, I would have upgraded but decided it was not worth the money.

Secretly turning off of the power to the rooms in the day time, un-known to me. Returned hot and sweaty after lunch to find i couldn't cool down. Eventually abandoned my room to use the wifi in the foyer, and politely asked when the power would be back on in my room. To their amusement they informed me the power had probably been switched off, as if that was obvious, and turned it back on. I asked why this had happened, who turns the power off to a booked room, and if it happens again i would check out and not extend my stay. (which was more to demonstrate my level of annoyance, i now know how to turn it back on) They didn't seem concerned. Happened again next day so i will check out tomorrow.

Asked for and received bottled water on a number of occasions no problem. One time i asked, in exactly the same way, the guy was puzzled, and returned with an empty water bottle filled with boiled water. Doing my best to be patient and realise i choose to travel in a country where i don't speak the local languages.

Otherwise staff did their best to assist, were kind, patient and gracious
