I found this hotel on tripadvisor itself and honestly this was the most appropriate choice for a stay in a place like Chennai.This was my first visit to Chennai and this hotel just added more joy and pleasure to my visit.

It is a good Veg Hotel for family stay in Chennai and the city center. Close to all important locations in Chennai. Room rent is reasonable and rooms are big and well maintained. This is an old hotel. It has a bar also.

One of the oldest hotels in the city of Chennai. Not very modern but reasonably good. It is located in a Central place, near other good hotels, American embassy, good college, shopping areas etc. Not very expensive. The vegetarian food, served in banana leaves, in the restaurant attached is very good and tasty. Very reasonably priced lunch.

A good hotel in terms of Location and accessibility. The room service is quite slow though, but they do their job. The rooms are very old but neat. Does not have the amenities that you usually associate with a modern hotel (like coffee makers in rooms). I was out late on night and came back to the hotel at 3... More

Plus: Located in heart of city, big parking space. Minus: All others are minus only. 1) Hotel rooms are too old and even the fan doesn't work properly. 2) They have central A/c. But not at all effective. 3) Too noisy from outside, neighbour rooms. 4) If someone smoke on the opposite room, the smoke comes through A/c duct to... More

I visited this hotel with my family in August for a Sunday lunch. The food / menu is excellent. The quality is superb and it tastes as home food. The food is unlimited and very neat and hygienic place. I was thinking the price would be around Rs. 200-250 but for my real surprise it was around Rs. 100-120 which... More

Efficient front desk, clean rooms, convenient travel desk that we have used many times without issues. Only hassle I find is that the elevator is slow. Better to use stairs if you can. Lot of help from the room boys but be prepared to tip them. Restaurant has tasty veg options.
