      The place was stinking with cigarette smoke all the time. The photos that they show is not real. They don't give you a refund what so ever. Our experience was really bad and we had to find a place elsewhere and loose the money.

      Good and helpful Staff, Location

      We did not stayed in the Hotel. We shifted within 30 mins. Both the hotels are under the same management. This Citi business hotel is horrible. Toilets are very dirty and room smells very bad. There was smoke smell all around. I checked around 5.00 pm. I went out look for another Hotel. There is a Hotel in the next Road. I went and enquired about the rooms and I wanted to see the rooms. The Hotel Manager and Recepnist showed the rooms. The rooms were new, clean and good. Accidently the Citi Business Hotel were under same management and they really helped a lot to transfer our language as well as the money want we paid to Citi business. I rate Citi business Hotel very low but staffs are really good. But I can rate Hotel 8 out of 10. We stayed during the heavy rainy days. They provided food and other form of support. Our sincere thanks. If they do few changes in their housekeeping, their Hotel rating will go up.

      Nice room with comfortable bed. No window on the street so not noisy. European toilets and hot shower. Tv with a lot of english channels. But little insects from the wall and the employees call you at anytime, with intern phones: they woke us up one morning calling us because we didn't have filled a phone number in the check-in form. But we don't have any cell phone during our trip in India.
