Savera Residency straddles the fine line between being an out-and-out budget hotel, and an attempt to be termed an economy class establishment. Whether it manages to do so really depends on individual experiences.
There is a reason why there is an ongoing debate by the city planners on whether an underground pedestrian crossing is not as good as an above the ground one. This is the same reason that causes you to hesitate at the entrance of Savera Residency - its lobby placed at the end of a tunnel-like basement entry can put you off.
However, its rooms are located on the 2nd and 3rd floors of the building, so, if you can adjust to the initial gloom, you may potentially have a decent place to stay. Not that its rooms suddenly turn into these vibrant places which will make your heart sing, but they do get better... the slightly tattered appearance notwithstanding.
The one thing that might work its way stomach-up could be the Fishland Restautant on the first floor, which is touted as one of the good places to try sea food at in the city. However, if you happen to not enjoy seafood, you should think about this long and hard, for here is where your complimentary breakfast is going to be served every morning. Nevertheless, you could possibly ask to eat at the Sitara Residency
, another property, a short walk away, that belongs to the self-same Swagat group.
While the rooms at Savera are presentable, the service reasonable and the prices affordable, you might be able to get better accommodation in this league.
