The rooms also have a small sit out/study in the entrance with a sofa set. The rooms service and facilities were good. There is buffet... More

Was not at all satisfied with hotel services, staff, food quality and the ambiance considering the price which they charge. You can find much better hotels in the area at the same rate. To start with, this hotel has old Government hostel look where employees... More

Hotel Palmgrove is an ideal place to stay for those going to Chennai for getting their US Visa. It is 10 minutes walk from the VAC (where the finger printing is done) and a 10 minutes walk from the US consulate (where the visa interview is held). The rooms are spacious, clean. The room service is quick. Staff are polite.... More

Well the rooms are not clean and very old fashioned. Yes, they charge nominal amount for the room, but still the service is expected to be good. The room service boys expect... More

The rooms were ok, spacious, the breakfast was good. there being an in-house restaurant turned out to be convenient. It... More
