“No more than a place to sleep overrnite”
Reviewed 15 June 2014

For the price that they charge, it is not good value for your money. Their breakfast was dismal. The room was worn out. The wifi was weak and fading, although we were near the router. We would take the time to look for a better place if we were to go back to Chennai.

Incase you are visiting Chennai for US Visa, then only think of this place as it is close to US Consulate else go for better hotels at same or lower price

Location - 4/5 ( Good only because of US Consulate )
Food - 3/5 ( Just Average for Veg)
Cleanliness - 1/5 ( Horrible as we saw Cockroaches in our room and at bed )
Facility - 1/5 ( No Facility available to enjoy )

Hope that helps.

Room Tip: All rooms are same

I stayed in this hotel because of the only advantage was that the consulate is just opposite to this hotel. Another interesting fact is that the place is close to 3 major malls,he staff is very helpful.

Very basic facilities, the only reason to stay here is to get to the US consulate easily. Has facilities to photocopy in case you missed a document, also has free WiFi. The food is not good ( no restaurant but have a kitchen that serves to the room) but there are plenty of good restaurants in the vicinity. Another intersting fact is that the place is close to 3 major malls, so once you are done with the visa process, you can pull in a bit of shopping if needed. The staff is very helpful.

Stay here only if going to the US consulate, don't expect much and you will not be dissapointed.

Room Tip: Choose another hotel if you are willing to travel to the consulate

Please stay away from this hotel. Just being very close to US consulate, this place is not at all worth of staying there. I have attached some of the pictures of there standard room. Don't go by pictures posted in there site. Reality is somewhat terrible.

I stayed in this hotel just opposite to US Consulate. The only advantage was that the consulate is just opposite this hotel. The room was not good and the corridor was scary. The photos in the website looks nice, but for the standard AC rooms you can't find this quality. Also there were 3G issue as coverage was low. There are lot of good hotels in the road on the left side of the consulate. Look for them
