Location is Very Good. Rooms are Okay Types. Check out time is not good i.e. 1100 HRS. Requested front office for late check out, but they simply denied even though the Hotel was almost vacant. Had to book another room just for few hours.

Got a good deal, so decided to stay here. Room was neat, spacious and well cooled (in chennai, the a/c better be working perfectly!). It is 5 mins auto ride from the central railway station (about 80 bucks), an added bonus. A-LaCarte options limited, but food is good. Try the traditional meals for lunch, surprisingly true to the taste of... More

Breakfast buffet (decent variety),the location of the hotel is very good,easy to commute. It can be better maintained( frequent change in bed linen) and definitely the front office staff should be more helpful.

The main pros of this hotel is the location which had been situated close to the Egmore railwaystation. The rooms had been Compact provided with average buffet breakfast. The staffs have been hospitable. Drawback is regarding maintenance of the rooms which is being unattended.

Front desk attitude of ladies need to change. Be nice to guest. Buffet breakfast is one of the worst among the hotels I have stayed. Breakfast is not served on time as stated in the brochure. Maybe it's suitable for bussiness people. A night or two. We had to cross to Udipi Home for good meals.

The hotel in the central place of Chennai and easily accessible to all shopping areas of the city but they don't provide extra amenities despite of taking the extra cost . like for extra bedding and the washroom latches were not in a good condition. But the food quality is good enough . good luck!!! :)
