Superb hotel with well maintained rooms

Posted 12 Feb, 2016

It is a quality hotel with very low cost. Food quality is of top level and the rooms are very clean and new. Rooms are very well maintained and the washrooms are also of 5 star level. Definitely is is a five star quality at lower rates. Perfect place to stay only as there are no choice to do any activity.

Excellent hotel , food & hospitality

Posted 20 Nov, 2015

Stayed at Akash inn in Shimoga between October 16, 18. Hotel is located within the city limits, easily accessible, close to market... The hotel is pretty new only 2 years old. Parking is available in the site next to hotel. There is some parking in the front area also but that is a little small. The front office, the house keeping is good. They are not greedy for tips for every single item.... The hotel is pure veg which was a good relief.... The breakfast is tasty and dishes are cooked to perfection... The hotel staff are very humble. You can get a good deal on MakeMyTrip... I would love to visit this place again in future... Must visit places in Shimoga Sakrebailu elephant camp--- beauty at its best... Visit around 8 am and hang on there for 1 hour... The mahouts bring elephants from forest to bathe them.... You can also bathe them and take some nice pics... Loved the exhilarating experience... Jog - if there is enough water.... We saw very less water... So I recommend not to visit... The drive from Bangalore to Shimoga is beautiful, paddy, recant fields everywhere.... Lovely rain en route makes it very scenic....

The hotel was located in the centre of the city. The hotel location was good. I didn’t face any problem in the hotel. The activity was not conducted at the hotel. I had visited this hotel with my family. The complimentary breakfast was provided by the hotel. All amenities were provided in working condition. Everything was good in the hotel. The food quality was good in the hotel. The service was done on time. The check-in and check-out was done on time. The best part of the hotel was room. The parking facility was not provided by the hotel.

Worth to stay in this hotel

Posted 29 Dec, 2015

Stayed for 3 days. Rooms and restaurant are neatly maintained. Breakfast is good and unlimited, but buffet system is prefererable over the present order and wait method. Small water bottle given as complimentary everyday is inadequate, and not fit the good standard of the hotel can seve one litre water as done by other hotels. Daily cleaning done only on demand by the guest. Wifi is added advantage in this otherwise good facility. Prefer the room facing the roadside.
