Really not value for money, too costly

Posted 25 May, 2018

Hotel is not value for money, the owner is a sikh guy talks rude and will not give you a penny discount, overall the price should be around 700 but it was 1450 which he is a huge more then it should be, he will force you to buy stuff from his hotel an eat from his restaurant, the third bed provided will be forced by him even if you don't ant in case of three people and charge 350 for broken bed ,, overalll it is fraud

Overall a good, affordable and clean hotel

Posted 18 Dec, 2015

Hotel monsoon is situated at AC lane near to police market area. It affordable hotel in the area. We booked a double bedded room. The room was very clean. There was a table, a self etc. A color TV was also there. Room service was good. The staff were helpful. Manager was also good. But sound can be heard from other room. They charge a bit higher for meal than other hotels available in the area. One of the men from the staff help me a lot. He arranged a cab for our tour. Overall a good, affordable and clean hotel.

Average experience since the hotel was not well-maintained

Posted 11 Mar, 2015

Overall, I had an average experience at this hotel since it was not maintained. The room that was allotted to us was not spacious and maintenance was poor, but the amenities were good. There were difficulties to reach the hotel and its surroundings were not good. There were delays in check-in and check-out procedure. The food that I ate at this hotel was good in quality and taste. The staff and services at this hotel were good and helpful. There were no activities and sightseeing trips organized by the hotel management. This hotel was not good according to me, and I would not suggest this hotel to others until the management improves its maintenance.

Budget hotel and sufficient parking space

Posted 17 Oct, 2014

My stay was completely personal for three days, nice for relax after a hectic day of work and good budget. Food was bit on a low side, otherwise a good hotel to stay and staff was really supportive. Nice location of the hotel as it was at the center and cab services were also arranged by the hotel and parking space was sufficient.

Posted 7 Nov, 2013

Good Hotel, centrally located & room tariff are reasonable, excellent cuisine. I suggest tourist and business travellers to check inj this hotel for a pleasant stay Since this is a low budget hotels to find accommodation without prior booking is tuff . Parking facility is available. Good to stay with friends and for a single day business trip.

The hotel room is very clean and I am very much pleased with the service, food is moderately good and I recommend staying there.

Hill facing neat and clean rooms; helpful staff

Posted 15 Sep, 2014

It was a 3 day short trip to this place. The outlook of this hotel was okay. There was no problem at check-in and check-out. The hotel staff were helpful. The rooms were small, neat and clean with TV, geyser, and basic amenities. The hills could be seen from the rooms. The food from the restaurant was good. There was no activity available. This hotel was situated near Police Bazaar. I travelled to this place in January 2013 with my wife for relaxation.
