India Any good place to stay near the Hyderabad prometric center

Hi

I know really wrong location to post this thread . But does anyone know of any good location to stay at Hyderabad for writing the USMLE step 1? Sure many would have already given in Hyderabad since only 2 - 3 centers currently in India.

Heard about Falcon Guest house and another hotel X 1589 or so. Any reviews on that?

BTW i am from Mangalore Karnataka. So really have no clue about places in Hyderabad.

Thanks in advance.

no idea when those centres reopen in bangalore,mumbai etc...
better make alternative arrangements...
if u dont have a centre at ur place,its better to stick to 1 of the 3 available n mentally prepared for it...
hyderabad is a better place in summer than gurgaon or allahabad i guess if u r scheduling it in nxt 2-3 months... if u r thinking of august-october then better go for gurgaon as its heavy rainy season in hyderabad...

Hi there is a place called raj banjara.. it is JUST okay. Not a great place actually but decent enough if you just want a roof over your head. the room costs around 800 bucks. and it is a walking distance from the centre

best of luck if you giving your exam any time soon

quick question!

the white boards that are given to each candidate for the exam, are they like the tiny ones?-just enough to do calculations on?...or are they big enough have the formulae written on as soon as we get in,plus space to spare?...

Hi, i took my step 1 in hyderabad. I'm from Pune and the mumbai prometric had shut down, so I chose Hyderabad. has been the best decision I could have made. Within 4 hours (the time it takes to enter mumbai from pune, let alone reach the hotel), I had started from my house in pune and was in the hotel room having my evening tea. I stayed at the Zeus Guest House. It is a homely guest house. DO not expect 5-start treatment. But, they were very helpful in every way. Since I had to leave early in the morning, they let my mom use the kitchen to make me breakfast and stuff that I was going to eat during the exam. They also helped with other issues like hot water, taxi arrangements and all.
I'd definitely suggest this. Its just like 10 mins walking from the prometric centre (3 mins if you go by car). If you want to go through a quick revision and aren't too concerned that you don't have perfumed beds, marble-tiled floors or ten different kinds of body washes and shampoos in the bathroom, you'll definitely be calm and happy here.

And they give you two pink letter head sized scrap boards. and a duster and 2 markers. its more than sufficient. remember to rub off your rough work during your break, so that you don't waste time during the block.
