Very good Location
on Oct 2, 2019
The hotel is located just about 500 meters from the Marina beach. There's a Sarvana Bhavan bang opposite the hotel. The Russian Embassy is also opposite this hotel.
The hotel seems to be an old construction. The reception is located on the 1st floor of the hotel.
The rooms seem to be worn out. The toilets smelt awful. The in-house restaurant serves breakfast.
A special mention of Mr. Chow from FabHotels is a must. He has been very efficient and hospitable.
Apart from the location, there is not much that the hotel has to offer
A Decent Property
on Jul 20, 2019
Located conveniently on the main (Santhome High) road it offers decent and comfortable accommodation. Good for an overnight stay.
The restaurant is average and the breakfast buffet is ordinary but value for the money that you are paying.

The hotel is located in a well connected area and their air conditioning works. In a way that's enough for an overnight stay. Not even a kettle in the room, no other amenities, single bath towel, no hand towel, no shower curtain so entire bathroom gets wet and messy if you run the shower. The shower was clogged with salt and the taps and toilet have outlived their days. I got a dirty kettle after asking for one. Corridors had cockroaches and were dirty. My purpose of stay was just a place to rest for the night so I did not complain.

Serrrrrrrrved it's purpose. Close to stone good spots (at the very least it's only an uber/auto rickshaw ride away). Good wifi connection, they serve local breakfast each morning, great service, fabulous breadtooooast!
You couldn't make it up

Ignore the photos because I think they were taken about ten years ago.
When we arrived the guy tried to charge me an extra 1000 rupees than if I just booked through Tripadvisor, so we had a strange conversation where I stood in the hotel & he was telling me it was cheaper to book online.
We'd booked the most expensive room, hoping for a bit of luxury, but we knew it was going to be bad as we walked up to the room & saw all the dirty plates etc outside the door (I assume from the people the night before).
The room had a strong smell of smoking despite it supposedly being a non-smoking room.
Once I pulled back the bed sheets I was sure they'd just remade a used bed. There were various hairs in the bed.
It wasn't hard to spot other things wrong with the room but it didn't look like it had been cleaned in a while. Everything was covered in dust and dirt. The door fell of the cupboard when I opened it, which we were actually quite amused by at the time.
The room came with an adjoining kitchen but the surfaces were sticky & upon opening the fridge I came to the conclusion that I would not be buying anything that required me to step in the kitchen again. It was gross.
The bathroom stunk so we kept the door shut throughout our stay. The toilet cistern leaked constantly across the floor, which I told reception about, but they never came to look at it & told us we couldn't move room. They obviously knew about it already.
The shower was grim so my partner didn't shower that day, but I battled through. Before I got in I had to hose down the 20 or so flies that had gathered inside. The shower was ok but the smell from the toilet meant you didn't want to hang about.
This was just one of those places that you didn't have to exaggerate anything because it was so bad.
The only positives were that the wifi was ok & they let us leave our bags in reception while we went for breakfast.
Needless to say that we only stayed one night & I will never return.
