Positive Reviews

Charming old building

Guests love the old building that is home to this hotel, as it is a restored shop from the 1800s that manages to retain much of its charm. Visitors believe that the building provides a unique experience that really added something to their stay.

Great location

The hotel is conveniently located in Little India, so it is surrounded by restaurants and historic attractions, according to visitors. The location allows guests to walk to many the things in the city that they wish to explore.

Friendly staff

Visitors appreciate the friendly behaviour of the staff at the hotel, as they are willing to assist with tour and transportation bookings and go out of their way ensure that guests have everything that they need.

Negative Reviews

Steep stairs

The hotel doesn't have a lift and guests must take a steep set of stairs to the rooms on the upper floors. Guests struggle with these stairs, especially visitors with mobility problems or those travelling with children.

Noisy street

Guests notice that the streets around the hotel are quite busy and this causes some noise to make its way into the rooms. The noise is said to be bad day and night because the neighbourhood is always active.
