Stayed here while on a business trip to Tatanagar. This is one of the oldest hotels in Jamshedpur (Hotel Natraj is the other one) - I remember staying here with my parents way back in the 1980s!!!!! Location of the hotel is excellent - right on Bistupur Main road with ample eateries, shops and autos available nearby.
However, seems the hotel has really not upgraded itself over time, in spite of the potential it had. Jamshedpur now offers much better and newer options at the same price. The place & the staff had an overall tired feel to it, so much so that it was almost depressing to go back to the hotel after a hard day's work.
Tip: do not book online. The hotel seemed quite empty when we landed up, and negotiated a much better rate at the reception - Rs. 2,200 for a deluxe double room.
Although it is quite an old Hotel it has lost its charm in face of new competitors. What I did not like was that they gave me a standard room and while checking out they were billing me a deluxe room. When I brought it to their notice that I was in the standard room , they change the bill. Never expect a good hotel to do this kind of herapheri.
Hotel is located at Bistupur. Location is excellent. I stayed in single occupancy Ac room @ Rs 1800 . You can get discount at reception. Luxury room @ 2800 for twin sharing. Staffs are courteous. Luxary room are good. Infrastructure looks old but maintained properly. Toilet & bed sheets were clean. They will provide shampoo pouch & soap.
Food are ok through it is bit costly. Average cost for veg dinner will be around Rs 300. If you are planning to catch a train in the morning ,better to settle payment after dinner else it will take 10-15 min. Auto`s are easily available in front of hotel. Settle Auto is also available. Distance from hotel to Tatanagar station is around 3 km & auto will charge Rs 60-80.
Stayed there just for a day. Experience was good. Courteous and helpful room service. Reception desk has also got prompt action. For longer stay the top class rooms are excellent except the location of bathrooms.
I stayed in this hotel for the whole month of July 2012 in a AC Deluxe room.
1. Staff is very courteous.
2. Food is good with too much quantity.
3. Hotel is located in the middle of Bistupur area which is considered as heart of Jamshedpur.
4. Hygiene level is OK though not excellent.
1. Hotel menu is limited. No south indian or continental food.
2. Rooms are not spacious. The room in which I stayed had two single beds and the worse part is the poor ventilation.
3. Wi-fi sucks.
