The worst hotel I have ever seen. Location - 3rd grade location, after 7pm you can find drunk people's next to the hotel as there is a wine shop next to the hotel. at evening when we were standing outside the hotel we saw lot of prostitute standing opposite to the hotel. so it's not at all advisable to stay along with family. We were given a room at 2nd floor, around 3 mid night someone knock at out door, when asked who was there no one responded and keep on knocking. Bath Shower - Water flow is as if they are offering honey to bath... it was the most worst experience we had... water flows in dropps... Don't ever stay in this hotel if you are with family LADIES... it's very unsafe..
Convenience to the train station. Perfect for the person coming in for one night and catching the train south the following morning.
Very Good Choice
Room was very large and clean. The hotel arranged a city tour for me -- modern private car and English speaking driver. Reasonably priced and quite enjoyable. At the end of my day and before returning to the airport before my return flight, the hotel made a room available for me to shower and change clothes -- very considerate. Reasonably priced breakfasts and other meals.
