i had a very good experience and the food served in room is fantabulous,i enjoy my time in hotel whn i visit tirupathi i never had a wrong experience, and as soon as u enter the hotel the lord venteshwara embedded in colourful stones its just mesmerising experience i feel like i have truly entered tirupathi.
Best Experience: every time i visit tirupati i prefer bhimas and the way they treat u and lend their services its remarkable and i have the best time with my family in my hectic life.
Worst Experience: my worst experience was once i could not get the room in bhimas and other star hotels i had to prefer other hotel in rating wise which was low than bhimas other than that nothing else
Very good hotel. Good food was served. Rooms are very nice. Nice and clean hotel. Renovated recently. Staff are friendly and courteous. They provide free WiFi and complimentary breakfast. Close to reliance mart and shops. We stayed in a 6 bed family room. It had a dressing room and two bathrooms. I felt they have increased the tariff now. Overall good place to stay.
It present in Tirupati near by bus stand. Staff is good at service. Food veg and non-veg allowed. It contains spacious rooms and nice facilities for middle class people. Hot water, TV, landline is available. AC and non-AC rooms are available at different packages. You can get taxis or rent vehicles from hotel only. Less car parking space. Housekeeping is just good. It is good for visitors who go in budget.
i had booked the hotel reading the reviews on holidayiq website i had done the booking on phone we had smooth checkin staff very courteous normal morning tea time is 5.30 but on request tea was served at 5am a very good gesture i tried andhrameals for lunch simply amazing next time i ll visit again good value for money
Had a pleasant stay here. Room is so nice. The hotel was everything that was promised. Service is little bit down. Very nearer to bus stand and railway station and also to padmavathi amma temple, Tiruchanur. Restaurant is also good in service and taste.
