10 pictures from my fabulous hotel stay at the Radisson Blu Ranchi, India
I have been visiting the YSS ashram in Ranchi (founded by Paramahansa Yogananda in 1917), Jharkhand, India for several years now and on a recent visit there, stayed at the Radisson Blu hotel, Ranchi for the first time. Since I was participating in an event attended by at least 1,500 people at the ashram and the days were quite exhausting, staying at this hotel was a welcome respite from the day's activities.
I had actually posted these pictures in my post on visiting the YSS ashram in Ranchi but felt I needed to make a separate post for this hotel.
Radisson Blu, Ranchi is perhaps the only 4 or 5 star hotel in Ranchi, that is not very far away from the ashram. It takes about 10 minutes with a cab from the hotel to reach the ashram depending on the traffic, and in the early morning hours when there is no traffic, it may take only 5 minutes. A private cab will cost *Rs. 200 ($4 approx.) one way and the hotel cab costs *Rs. 400 ($7 approx.) one way. The YSS ashram may be able to provide you with a list of private cab numbers in the city.
*Rates are as per calendar year 2015 and may change accordingly.
My room was very comfortable, the food was good and the service excellent--for anyone who can spend between $100-$150 (including cab and perhaps a little bite here and there), this hotel is a great place to stay. Here are some pictures of the room and the showers and the general ambience of the hotel. P.S. I also got a free room upgrade which was really cool! The room was a good size and the shower was totally awesome!
