“Please avoid...”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 October 2012

Its my sincere request to you all, Please avoid this one as there is nothing on offer here except for the location. In fact this advantage also gets nullified because there are better hotels at cheaper rates in the vicinity of Chennai Egmore and Chennai Central.

The hotel smells, produces unwanted noise, has not so co operative staff, theft prone, has poor bathrooms and in short it sucks...

Please avoid...

Please don't go by the photographs of this hotel on the website. Appearances can really be deceptive. The location of the hotel is excellent, because it is bang opposite the Egmore Railway station. However, if you want to keep your baggage and get out then it's o.k. cause the hotel is not worth living in. The amenities are pathetic. The whole hotel stinks. Nothing seems to be working - even their electronic door locks can go wrong...would be a nightmare if your baggage is in! The price that they charge for their one room is really not worth...there is no place in the room to even move about! Use this hotel if only you need a stop over and don't want to spend. Even then there are better options in the row opp. Egmore Station like Sangeetha Business Hotel, Hotel Chandra Park and the 3 star - Fortis which is excellent. The worst is interacting with the reception staff - they can't understand one word of Hindi or English. The best person was their doorman a chap from Mumbai - hence he helped with all the necessary information and language translation.

I stayed with my family in this hotel on 25.04.12 and 26.04.12 by booking 2 delux rooms.Rooms and hotel location were ok for the price and our problems started from time we checked in and remained till we checked out .In this hotel service is non existent and it is only slightly better than staying in railway station plat form.No drinking water available.A/C ,health fossets not working.The main problen is communication and no service even after asking 10 times .This one of the worst hotel stay in my life.Food is just hoorrible and thanks for near by good restorents.Staff is not co-operative and just cont understand any thing and even you make them understand they will not do any thing.Please avoid this hotel even if you are single or with family.Not recommended to anybody and more so for vegitarians

lets admit it- this hotel is terrific in terms of its location-very close to the Egmore railway station. but beyond this one factor, the hotel has nothing else to offer. firstly, it is very unhygienic, the rooms are badly maintained, bathroom just about clean. then they do not have any restaurant food of their own to offer. they do have a very small restaurant, dark in terms of colour and light, but it is good only for the morning breakfast. then the room-service is pathetic and there are constant delays. the phone in the room I stayed was not working so had to run up and down several times in order to remind them of the things I had ordered. they made no efforts to fix the telephone line. there was also no hot water facility. the only proper eating place was the nearby Saravana Bhavan at two minutes walking time. further during nights, the hotel is not properly lit, so looked a bit shady and personally I will not stay with my family here. suitable only for 1 night transit purpose.

This hotel was closer to egmore station. it was just walking distance from egmore station. The hotel booking can be made without paying upfront. Rooms are quite even though hotel was located at a busy place. Rooms are average. For a break journey it was advisable. I used this hotel when i went to India for a short trip. Cost is low and there was a travel desk attached to this hotel. no internet.
