I feel that this is the best hotel for family and friends as it's near to Allahabad railway station, so not any difficult to reach here. It's parking is amazing and you can take your car or motorbike in your personal room, it's a fully air conditional hotel and facility is so good. If you want to take a rest request for Kanha shyam Hotel.
We had gone to Allhabad after a short stay at Lucknow,where we had stayed in a 5-star hotel,which had sorely disappointed us. The stay at the Hotel Kanha Shyam,was, therefore, a much needed relief.Though the hotel is located in the centre of the Civil Line area (down time),it is an advantage,since everything is close by.The friendly reception,the courteous service and the amenities in the room,all combined to cheer us up.
Best Experience: We needed to stay a few hours beyond the check-up time,as our train was in late-evening.When we asked at the reception about it,they not only permitted us to stay the extra hours,but also asked what we would like to have in our packed food which they offered to prepare for us for our train journey.A hotel which is more than a structure of bricks and wood; it came out like a home away from home!
Worst Experience: None.We will gladly repeat our trip to Allahabad, and stay in this hotel without second thoughts.
2 days stay at Kanha Shyam was a memorable one. Impressed with the quality of food and service that was provided during the stay. Food quality was equally impressive. If some more facilities can be added it would definitely be wonderful to be there. Hoping to visit again. It was probably the one of the best hotel experience till date.
I have been to Allahabad in one of my business meetings. My company booked a room in the Kanha Shyam hotel there in the civil lane. I loved the location of the hotel for many reasons. I can say for the area, services in that region and many more. I really loved that. The appearance of the hotel mesmerized me a lot . . The front desk and the staff there gave me a nice and I can say warm welcome which I rarely expect in such type of services. The staff were really good, helping. The services were also very good and up to some of my expectations. The room was really nice. Food and drink was not that much good but it was something normal. Activities were really nice.
Awesome service, I stayed in this hotel with my family for couple of days. Everything about this place is perfect. The location was awesome so near to railway station and this hotel is in main market. The. I was surprised when I. If I go to.
