Hotel Pearl International
Ranked #112 of 415 Hotels in Chennai (Madras)
Reviewed 1 June 2014

This place was my first night staying in India, and I was a little nervous about travelling in India as a female solo traveller. However, the guy at the tour desk helped me make a phone call to local people that I had to call and could not communicate with in English, so I really appreciated the hospitality of the hotel. Room was clean and air conditioning works very well too.

We stayed here for 2 nights in May 2014. The rooms were clean and cozy, however somewhat noisy with the street noise which went on all night (we were on the 1st floor, so perhaps a higher floor would be better). The service from all staff we interacted with was unfortunately quite poor, certainly don't expect any smiles or warm welcomes here. Upon arrival staff were straight to the point, seemingly offish and uninterested. Breakfast (included) was chaos, it was buffet style and we arrived for breakfast at around 9am (served 8-10am) and it was crowded and messy. It seemed mostly full with countless staff interested only in getting their breakfast and not concerned for the guests. The servers in the restaurant were again disinterested and rude, sometimes even ignoring us when talking to them. Overall this hotel is just ok, for short stay with it's close proximity to Chennai Central Station (only 5 mins walk) but I wouldn't want to stay longer than that. It is mostly for those on short business stays and they don't really cater for tourists well.

Stayed: May 2014

We have arrived all the way from vijayawada just to catch another train from.chennai central and we have got 5 hrs of wait and booked a room in which we were not allowed as we were 2 boys and girl. And the receptionist was rude who really do not have any kind responsibilty to satisfy the customers. Please dont choose this hotel.

This hotel is pure value for money. Excellent staff with no communication problems. Good room service, and excellent complementary buffet spread. Great rooms and cooperative and understanding manager. All in all.. Full rating from my side.

Excellent staff...hindi and english speaking...very very co-operative..all the facilities are readily available on time..room cleaning,house keeping...breakfast is ok.

Mainly,the staff is very very good and they treat well.
Wi fi,gym available..!!! location is ok just for rail connectivity..

The autowalas in front of the hotel are very rude...area is not so good..

But the hotel rooms are clean... staff is very very humble and polite.they treat us very nicely. 24hrs check in..
we checked in late night but hot or cold beverages were not available(neither coffee nor tea)

Atleast they should keep filter machine to serve tea or coffee to serve to late night check in customers.

Only because of the hotel pearl international stay,my chennai business visit exp was good.

Overall you feel like home away home in the hotel as staff is good..!!!

Room Tip: prefer staying on 3rd or 4th floor...rooms are better!!!!!

I stayed here for 2 nights with my young son. The rooms were quite basic but adequate. Cable and wifi worked well. Reception staff were very helpful and free breakfast provided like a mini buffet style. Plenty of autos available outside and very convenient for shopping and accessibility to train station. Money well spent!

Stayed in this hotel for 2 days with my parents. Me, along with my parents are very much satisfied after staying in this hotel. It is very near to chennai central railway station. Easily walkable distance from the station for a person with normal physic.
I had to check in at around 4:45 AM in the very early morning. I was worried for this reason as whether it will be smooth or not. But it was really nice. We checked in smoothly. Room was ready. Staffs were available. Special thanks to Sidhu (the in-charge at that time). He has been very nice. This hotel in real sense provides facility of 24 hours check in.
We were also very happy with the menu of the complementary breakfast. We were worried that if only south Indian breakfast had been served, then it could be a problem as we are not habituated. But they provided lots of option in breakfast - like - milk-cornflakes, noodles, poori, roti, boiled eggs, omlets plus south Indian items. It was really nice.
Wi-fi in the room was quite OK.
Staffs were good.
Room was quite spacious. (I booked a suite room).

Fully value of the money.

Room Tip: Not so much Idea. I had stayed only once and stayed in suite room. It was very good as compare to th...
