Lodge like Hotel

I booked rooms in this hotel for a couple of days since I had stayed in the other properties of Empire earlier. I found the rooms to be very small, not very neatly maintained. Also, if you book online, the checkout time is 12pm. But if you book offline, the checkout is 24 hours.

A bit rundown

The always ready to assist staff; the very good shower with warm water and the location were all positive points.
My stay was good, although the hotel is a bit rund-down. Some painting and repair could make it much better than it is now. The restaurant is very good good for lunch and dinner, but the breakfast is not too impressive. However, the staff are very supportive and helped in getting a SIM card and the registration of my friend( a complicated on-line system).

a bit of a nudge helps

room quality
The rooms were good, and the location fairly good, with easy access to different parts of town. The staff needs a little extra nudge though if you want them to help you with anything, especially for a non outrageously priced taxi, but then they will follow through amazingly and are very friendly about it!

Good value for money in an excellent location.

location, free Wi-Fi and attached restaurant.
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here. The location half way between MG Road and Commercial Street was ideal, the staff were really helpful and the facilities worked as well as I was hoping them to. Good value for money.

Best value for money.

Close to city centre, Close to shopping malls, Just INR 700 to the airport via Taxi,
Great value for money. There is no additional charges when check-out. They charge for breakfast(As I remember now around INR 150 per meal), which is usually toasted bread with an omelet. but, it's very delicious. Nice restaurant in downstairs. You can get nice Indian food. There are thousands of varieties. Air-conditioned dining area also available. Also were Delicious, Clean and Healthy food. You can eat good food around INR 250 -300. Nice friendly restaurant staff. The location is close to city center (which is less than 500m)and also to shopping malls in the MG Road (around 1 - 2km). If you are looking to buy sarees or Indian garments the best place is Majestic Market and it is 4 to 5km away. The hotel will not add the charges to the Hotel bill. They will charge (for meals etc...) it at the same time they give the service. Therefore you can manage your money efficiently. This Hotel is good for families since the rooms are located securely. No one can enter to the room area without the notice of the Hotel room service staff. You can keep your baggage secure even though there is no Safe. But you must understand that this is not a 5 star hotel. This is ideal for families, solo travelers and business travelers. Not for the honeymooners. (Of-course you will not look for cheap hotels if you are coming with your girl friend.) I came with one of my colleague to participate in a business workshop. The workshop was hold in Hotel Chancery, which is just 700m away. The location of the hotel and the down-stair dining restaurant was absolutely fantastic.
