Stayed in this hotel for a couple of days last week and the overall experience was "VERY GOOD". 1) Delicious food with lot of varieties especially breakfast. 2) Courteous staff and very humble in dealings. 3) Hotel was very clean. 4) Staff did not trouble at all for tips after service offered unlike some hotels in Tirupati where I had a bad experience. 5) Location is just awesome and next to the Bus station and Railway station. Only problem as per my experience, there is no covered but an open car parking. I parked my car for the whole day since we went to Tirumala by taking the steps. After returning I found my car completely dirty. But overall an excellent and wonderful stay and I will recommend everyone visiting Tirupati.
I was planning my trip to Tirupati and was wondering if I should stay in the hotel I stayed in 2 months back or try another option. Normally I don't like experimenting but them wanted to check out and finally landed at Minerva Grand. The name of Minerva along with saving of couple of thousands made me book this hotel. The hotel is located very close to the Bus Stand and Railway station in Tirupati. There is a Reliance Mart and a Kalyana Mandapam next door and a railway track behind the hotel. This description itself would stop anyone from booking a hotel but I was surprised after completing the stay. The check-in was very smooth and we were escorted to the rooms. The rooms are decent sized and are well lit. The air conditioning is good and the toilets are clean. The beds are comfortable. I had ordered for an extra bed and the crib is really a crib and is not comfortable. The hotel has two restaurants- Minerva Coffee shop, a vegetarian restaurant and Blue Fox, a multi-cuisine bar and restaurant. We tried Minerva for lunch and dinner. They have the Thali which is preferred. Lunch and dinner were OK but the best here is breakfast which has blown our minds. This is unmissable. The room service and service at the restaurant are good and the check out was smooth. Staff are ever smiling. The hotel has a Gym but lacks a swimming pool. Though the hotel is in a crowded area, It is very silent from inside. For the price I have paid, I felt it is value for money and would prefer staying again.
I will give 100% stay comfort assurance for Minerva. Being a new hotel the rooms and services are up-to the mark. The food is authentic. I visit mostly Minerva when I'm in that city. Anybody can stay happily with the family too. A holy place like Tirupathi & your stay will be so comfort with Minerva.
Overall experience was good and I did not find any issues in locating the hotel. The staff were helpful and friends. I was happy with the room allotted for me. The room was spacious, neat and clean. I did not find any problem in check in and checkout. The appearance of the hotel was superb and they provided all the working amenities. The food was good and we opted for veg food. The quality of food was good and it was reasonably priced. I did not observe any of the activity in the hotel. My stay was value for money.
The Hotel is well located in the town itself. The rooms were very neat and tidy. Toilets were also clean and neat. The front office were good and they were providing the services with utmost respect for their guests. The staff were very polite and well behaved. They provided us with the welcome drink. The hotel has a big car parking area so there won't be any parking concerns for travellers who are coming in their own vehicles. The restaurant was very good and the service was awesome. The food tasted good and great. The hotel is pure vegetarian. The breakfast is complimentary for the guests and they provide a good buffet breakfast. OVERALL THE HOTEL IS LIKE A HOME SWEET HOME AT TEMPLE TOWN GUARDED BY THE SEVEN HILLS OF LORD VENKATAESWARA.
