“Budget hotel - not recommended”
Reviewed 22 July 2014 via mobile

Two day stay with family and friends.wrong choice.dusty small rooms. Broken AC controls didn't budge.
when I inquired from Bangalore they said it is one and half km to T nagar shopping area. Actually it was six km.
Food so so type. Though we were the only guests seen restaurant staff took ages to serve us. Name Dolphin is misleading.



Stayed December 2013, travelled with family

Choose this place only if you have no other option. During a day's stay, I had to call the reception every time I needed to use the geyser and whenever the AC stops working. The AC couldn't be controlled and the TV was actually a small computer monitor with few channels. The bathroom was clean but needs renovation. The rates are only a little cheaper than the other better options such as Bhimaas and Aspni (which are on the main road on Vadapalani).

do not prefer this hotel bath rooms r dirty, bed is terrible, blankets are old and full of dust , if u switch on the AC u can`t control it , if u want increase the temp. u have to switch it off. I was expecting that budget hotels r in chennai may be good, but our trip was horrible. this is not preferable for couples or families and rooms are very conjested

The room was very poorly maintained with plug sockets hanging off exposing wires. The cleanliness was horrible. There was even urine on the toilet seat. The first thing that I did was clean the room and bathroom. Yes it is cheap but even the lowest cost places should be clean. The AC didn't work, which they informed us of AFTER we had unpacked and I had cleaned. They offered to move us to another room but when I went to view the alternative room, it was just as dirty, and I didn't want to clean 2 rooms during my stay. When I explained all of this to the unfriendly and unwelcoming Reception person he didn't even apologise. We checked out the following day and found somewhere else.
