Good hotel with all amenities, courteous staff, ease and convenient location, nice compound and corridor so you are away from street. Food at restaurant was nice. Maybe old property needs some touch up. Overall satisfied.

Stayed for two nights. The hotel is located at a very good location. The hotel indeed was in its full glory some years back, But its very well maintained though. Lifts are old style so beware, the doors don't have the sensors.
The room was comfortable and the staff are very courteous.
WiFi, to my surprise, was not complementary. Most of the business hotels offer free wifi to its customer now a days. Though the hotel had a e-Room with two desktops with printer attached which can be freely used. The hotel management need to think about this and should provide free WiFi to all its customers.
Buffet breakfast was complementary, felt that the lunch and dinner buffet are a bit too pricey.
Overall I had a good experience and would definitely recommend this hotel to my colleagues.

The Ambassador Pallava is an average hotel in the heart of Chennai which may have seen better days in the past. At first appearance it is grand, but as one enters the corridors and rooms one can see distinct signs of neglect. The rooms were comfortable and the staff pretty obliging.
Buffet breakfast was okay and food in the restaurants too was at best, average.

Room Tip: The heritage quarter rooms are perhaps in better condition than the rest of the hotel.

I stayed in Ambassador Pallava for two nights earlier this week. Hotel is situated at a great location, very close to Egmore and the arterial Anna Salai. Being an old landmark, this hotel is well known to everyone from the accessibility point of view. Although the hotel is quite old, it is very well maintained and the rooms are neat and clean. The lifts in the hotel do not have any sensors as in the modern day lifts - so take extra care when you use it along with children.

During my stay, I could not use the Wi-fi and the IT help desk could not fix the issue. So, they promptly refunded the charge. The buffet spread for b/f, lunch and dinner were fabulous. It is more of a Indian food spread. If you were expecting anything continental, it might be disappointing. Great food though and a very pleasant stay.

The hotel is located in heart of city and the location is peaceful. The ambience is great and food is good. The facilities provided is quite good. The breakfast buffet was nice. I liked the traditional look which still exists. The check in and check out was quite fast. I spent a night there did not get to explore the facilities first hand but it was pleasant stay which I would definitely say,

Hotel Pallava Ambassador is an old landmark at Egmore, Chennai, and still maintains its professionalism and service standards today. I stayed there for three nights and the experience was uniformly pleasant.

My room was in the older block, and had a few quirks. The bathtub/shower was tucked away in a corner, with reduced access to it, and was somewhat high to step into (especially for shorter persons). The room itself was reasonable, clean and had a coffee maker. Internet was available for extra payment (I don't know why the management doesn't provide complimentary Internet for guests...this is common practice in many good hotels in India).

The breakfast and dinner buffets were very good, and the service was excellent. The checkin/checkout too was very smooth and enjoyable. The overall ambience of the hotel is quite uplifting from the traditional Karnatic music to the decor. Finally, there are a wide variety of services available on the ground floor, making it almost like a mini-mall.

Some aspects of the hotel reflects its age, but the cuisine, service and décor are very good. Overall, I had a very pleasant time.
