Treebo Select Fortel
Ranked #233 of 437 Hotels in Chennai (Madras)
Reviewed 12 January 2011

I visited this hotel on a business trip. While i entered the shower in the bathroom and tried to close the shower's sliding door, it came crashing on me. I got cuts on my toe and hand. however i called the housekeeping and they came to clear the mess. The shower cabinet was made of extremely poor material and was of poor design (i understand the shower cabinet mechanism and material that should be used)

I asked for a change of room to take shower as I was running late of the meeting. However even after several requests there was no reponse. finally i had to wait for over 30 mins until the housekeeping cleaned the bathroom and left.

At the time of checking out, I was shocked when the manager asked me to pay Rs3000 for breaking the shower door. Instead of apologizing the staff held me for not paying up. Finally I shouted on them in Indian style and left for my meeting that I was already late for.

Reviewed 19 December 2010

My booking with Fortel was through a telephone call and reservation was well made without any issues. I had travelled into Chennai airport and took the local train from Trisulam station outside the airport to Egmore. The hotel is a stones throw from the Egmore rail station.
The check-in was smooth and my room was on the 8th floor which gave me a good view of the rail track at Egmore. Except for the occasional noise from the train engines, the room is good with nice and basic facilities rolled in.
Had ordered food through room service and the quality was good enough-nothing to complain. Had wanted salt and pepper additionally which was complied quickly enough.
Overall, a good hotel to stay in, especially if someone traverses through Egmore.
