We had read the reviews online but did not book them online. We were on a shoestring budget this time which is why we did not want to book it online. The name had stuck but not as much the reviews. But the ground reality was different. This place is much better than others in the same budget (700 for a basic room). For the price, the rooms were clean enough. They would change sheets on request. The towels and the washrooms were not terribly clean but tolerable. This was the first hotel we checked out once we reached Orchha and checked out 4-5 more (almost all of them had some peculiar smell in their rooms except Monarch Rama) in the same budget thereafter but finally returned to this one.
