The hotels looks quite old from building construction. The tariff is OK as per the hotel condition.. rooms were small & not airy. They lacked fresh air. I had ordered dinner in my room.. the staff courteous to give complementary papads with dinner.. but food was very ordinary in taste.. the breakfast had few options. there are nothing much attractions in this hotel.. i just tried this hotel for sake of trying something new.. so i would rate this hotel as avoidable.

Hard to miss. Bank on the vadapalani road. The lobby looks very ornate. However, the rooms are very basic. The flooring was very cold with A/C running in full blast and no carpeted or wooden flooring. Other than that, the stay was quite good. Comfortable bed and clean room.

The restaurant was a bit crammed. They had arranged the breakfast spread in the corridor leading to the lift. Could have done it better.

Overall a decent property and comfortable stay.

They try and cheat you out of more money after your booking. Annoying room service too. I had a bad experience with them throughout my stay. The porters are helpful though. Front desk treat you like criminals

Our second stay at this hotel. The staff really care and respect foreigners. The chef went out his way to prepare Jain food for us. Food was nice (South Indian) and good spread for breakfast. We are small eaters and staff was concerned that food might be no good. We have to explain the food was excellent but we are small eaters.

The management of this hotel are very competent.

The hotel looks good from outside. good ambience, good rooms gym spa bla bla bla.
but staying here was a not so good experience. to start, i stayed there for 3 nights on two different occasions in same week. two different rooms, different floors. but same kind of problems.

poor maintenence.

the wall sockets broken, tv cable wires broken so u get to see only a few channels clear. shower knob broken. coffee kettle not working. almirah door does not lock. and to add to it continuous humming sound specially on top floor. with a jhankar beats kinda effect of trafiic sound all night long.

food was good, i had a la carte as well as buffet.

Room Tip: dont take top floor.
