It is located about 5 minutes walk from Egmore and 10minutes drive from Chennai Central. This is the only plus point if you are reaching Chennai by train/bus.

The hotel is not maintained well. The rooms are not so great for the price. If you need a sound sleep without any disturbance then perhaps this is not nice place as you can hear the trains running and vehicle honking from your room.

My room was not cleaned even after requesting twice. The restaurant is open for breakfast from 7:30am but on all the days of my stay they were not ready even at 8am.

Mosquitos!!!! Everywhere in the lobby and the restaurant. Luckily not in the rooms!

So simply avoid if possible.

Room Tip: If you can not avoid, please take the room away from the front of the hotel.

Rooms are very nice but the service and the amenities provided by the hotel has to be improved. Food was also good. Only thing is that for the lunch and dinner it is almost the same food. Other than that quality is good.

The USP of the hotel is its location. I was on an official trip to Chennai.I had to take local trains to reach various parts of city.Fortel's location made it easier to return late with convenience. Rooms are clean. good housekeeping. Restaurant needs some improvement in terms of no. of buffet food items. we had very less items to choose from.

Room Tip: Road facing rooms are best especially above 4th floor.
