Reviewed 13 May 2014 via mobile

Location is superb. 5 min walk to Pondy Bazaar, T Nagar. Nice small restaurant with superb Indian food. Try the chicken lolly pop or the briyanis. They hv a simple but appealing bar in the basement floor that hv live music on Fridays. Worth a visit!

Stayed January 2014, travelled with friends

Location of this hotel is near the market and all city amenities, like railway station etc. However, they really need to work on their room interiors and amenities.
We were a group of 10 people, so booked 5 double rooms. I guess they've rented a guest house just next door, where they gave us 3 rooms. These were spacious but interiors were just of a lodge. And, the service was really poor. It took 20 mins to get 2 cups of tea in the room!
In addition, it's more like a hotel for small time business travaller, rather than a family.

Good thing about the hotel was they specially prepared the complementary breakfast, despite we checking-in late at 11.00 am (their breakfast timings are from 7.00 to 10.00 am). However, the bad thing was they only had some vadas & idli's in the breakfast. They even charged us for tea/coffee.

Overall, not recommended if you are visiting Chennai on a family trip!

Convenient location for activities in and around for TNagar and Pondy bazzar, Balaji temple. All are walkable distances. Front desk is cooperative and hospitality is fine.
Budget hotel. Complimentary Breakfast, lunch and dinner are average. Complimentary Breakfast session Closes sharply by 10 am. Needs improvement in quality. Staff are not attentive. Hot plates are not used to keep food items warm.
Rooms are not provided with coffee makers. TVs to be upgraded. Maintenance is very poor. Lift working is not predictable. All 4 days it failed many times. 24 hours hot water would not be supplied. Even in scheduled morning hours also only lukewarm water will be supplied. All in all it can grow to an excellent hotel only if it improves maintenance and service. Time being it is just an average hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms in lower floors as lift fails many times.

On my last trip to Chennai, decided to look for different place to stay from our usual haunt. Our host suggested Raj Palace in T Nagar. It is centrally located and seemed to be patronised more by business travelers. Inspite of having made a booking days ahead, by the time I reached at 6 pm, there was no vacant room. Finally was allotted a room at 8:30. Wonder if it was just a chance event or others had similar experience. Had food at the rooftop restaurant which was nice and staff was courteous. Both room and food are priced reasonably

We stayed in this property for 2 nights in Dec 2013. Location was very central, easliy accessible from airport, and close to major shopping and tourist areas. Rooms were decent, clean. However, some of the things promised in the booking done online were not available, e.g. Tea/ Coffee maker in the room. We had to go and ask for the same, and the staff gave it to us only after persistently following up. That too for only 1 room, while we had 2 rooms. Also the restaurant/ coffee shop where we had breakfast is extremely small, and easily got overcrowded on both the days. So decent location, but don't expect too much of service.
