This is a nice and cozy place near Egmore in Chennai. We had a lot of relatives staying around this hotel, so we decided to pick this one up for our four night stay. We had four rooms. First up, the initial looks of this hotel may put you off as they do look a little rundown and old. However,... More

Had a chance to stay briefly during my Business trip to Pune in last week of January. This was my trip to Pune after a good 5 years and a lot had changed on City's landscape.

The best thing about this hotel is its location. About 1 km from the train station and 500 metres from the city center. The building is old, and the rooms are pricy for the low standard. The restaurant is good, and it's included breakfast. The rooms are okay, but run down.Wifi only in the reception area. For one or two... More

We've stayed at the Blue Diamond on a number of occasions, usually as stopover between long flights from europe and long train journeys north! As a westerner, if its your first time in India, you'll get a shock here - but by Indian standards this is a reasonable, good value hotel. Linen is reasonably clean, air con doesn't often work...

Good, but not good as it was in the past.... Im a big fan of this place since childhood, and will continue to be only if the standards are maintained. One hotel, we regularly visit to bring back old memories, a place were waiters who were there 25 years back still greet you with loads of love and affection. Coming... More
