“Great Hotel to stay when visiting Chennai”
Reviewed 5 May 2014

One of, if not the most friendly hotel I have stayed in. Great views from the roof top restaurant, during either day or night
Food and staff were amazing, one to recommend if visiting Chennai either for business or holidays

Room Tip: A corner room offers great views and provides plenty of light due to the double aspect

I didnt have too long in the hotel as was only staying for one night, however the hotel was very clean, service was good, including the car pick up form the hotel which worked very well despite my delayed flight.

Rooms well stocked and had a good powerful shower.

Wouldn't hesitate to recomend

We went and had dinner at the rain tree on the roof top restaurant, lovely views, really helpful waitress ( although when she was busy at another table the waiter we asked for help wasn't as quick... ) food was lovely and good size portions. Not overly priced either, 400+ for some great main courses, although sides often additional. Beer 600rp for large kingfisher. We ate and watched the sunset over chennai. Will definitely go back as the food was excellent.

Stayed March 2014, travelled as a couple
