I chose this hotel following a bad experience just up the road. The air conditioned rooms are moderately spacious and hot water is sometimes available (sometimes out of the cold tap too!).
The restaurant is good and if you are happy to eat Indian style, the daily breakfast is fine. Sometimes there is music in the evening.
Wifi reception is a bit variable.
You should try to negotiate the price down by at least 30%.
The main receptionist is very helpful but the younger one has only limited understanding of English which can lead to problems.
One strange thing. Though the rooms have regular tiled roofs, the upstairs 'corridors' are covered with galvanised iron roofs and if it rains in the night the noise is incredible.
