            Not satisfied”

            Location wise it is good as it is situated at a walking distance from mg marg but can be troublesome for older people as the road is steep. Maintainance of the hotel is not good. Deluxe rooms are small and damp as the windows are blocked and there is no way air or sunlight can enter the rooms. Super deluxe rooms are okay but there is hardly any mountain view as it is situated at an extremely congested area. Water or electricity problems can also occur sometime. So overall the experience was not satisfactory.
