We were 'persuaded' to drop into the roof bar/restaurant at this hotel for a drink before dinner further along the same street. Our appearance seemed to take the staff up there by complete surprise as they had to quickly lay out a plastic table and chairs. The beer was OK in that it was cool enough, but it was still... More

I had booked this hotel through Stayzilla.com. There needs to be improvement wrt communication between the service provider and the agency . The stayzilla phones dont work all through the day and I was left high and dry as they did not transfer the amount to the hotel and the hotel management asked me to cough up the room rent... More

Prem Nivas is a hotel which might have seemed swanky around three decades back but since then has had no facelift whatsoever. Everything about the place is old world without the charm. The room flooring is the age-old spotted square tiles, the interiors are wooden dull, the walls are whitewashed, bath-fittings are outdated and the bed is the standard lumber... More

The location of this hotel is the only advantage I could find. It is very much near to Periyar bus stand and Railway station. You can stay in the city center with all amenities near by. But the rooms were very old and not maintained properly. This property badly needs a renovation. The window curtains, sheets and all furnitures were... More

This hotel has a very comfortable location very next to the main train station. Reaching Airport from here should not take more than 30 min by cab. Reasonably prices with fairly friendly staff. Rooms were decent and I would say good value for money!

The hotel is located very close to the Railway Station and Meenakshi Temple. Although a very old property, they have managed to maintain it to some extent. Basically a budget hotel ! We were informed that the renovation is taking place from the 6th floor - downward with 5th floor completed. A new elevator is being added. Service is quite... More

Except locational advantage (near to railway station and meeankshi temple), there is nothing to speak about this hotel. service very poor. furniture is very old. room facilities are almost nil. and price is very high.
