    The rooms are in need of a revamp so don't expect much. Breakfast was good in the restaurant at the Maharani which is modern. Wi-Fi is capped which is not great. Overall it is fine for a quick business trip but an average option.

    Overall enjoyed staying at the hotel. There are small flaws that are easy to fix. Liked the cooking and hospitality of the staff. Less like dust in wardrobes and the inability to warm the air in the room.
