Reviewed 22 March 2016

Room was located on 2nd floor, had clean interiors and ample space. major issue was maintenance of the room. out of 7 light fixtures installed in room only 4 were working and 1 out of 2 lights were working in the washroom.
after complaining washroom lights were fixed but room lighting was not repaired.
also the light inside the cupboard was filckering and the mini bar fridge was not effective in cooling stuff.
mattresses and bed lined was in poor shape, torn from some places.


washrooms were clean and hygienic, all amenities were provided (dental kit, shaving kit, soaps etc) but again maintenance wasnt upto the mark. The soap holder/shelf in the shower was broken there was no space for keeping shampoo and the soap.

room service was above average-ordered for a tandoori platter, costed me approx 500 after 20% discount offer which was running at that time. good value for money.

breakfast was average, available at 7 in morning top on floor restaurant but had limited and repeated menu. i stayed for 5 days so got bored of eating same items.

they should include south indian breakfast items also once a while.

overall service in restaurant was prompt and courteous.

location is good, near to bus stand at esplanade and 10 min walking diistance from park street. taxis are easily available and there are a lot of great and economical restaurants nearby.

if maintenance of rooms can be looked in detail, it would result in a far better experience.

Room Tip: 2nd or 3rd floor

I checked into this hotel on the 21st of Feb 2016 to checkout the Park Street Area which i had heard a lot about. The Reception staff and the room service staff were very courteous and well behaved but the thing which i dint like was the room. It was a very small room with very little natural light coming in. There washroom ceiling was dripping water exactly where the toilet pot is located. So if you sit on the pot you will feel drops of water falling on you.
The restaurant was good with a little above average food but again the staff were very nice.

Room Tip: Book rooms on the first and the second floor. The ground floor rooms are pathetic.
