Booked a guest there. Time of reservation I was informed that the total room cost is 4173 INR for two nights. Once the reservation is confirmed they informed us 4173 INR is only for one night. Hotel staff from front desk to accounts team are rude. Especially "Rama Krishna" from the accounts team. Hotel personnel do not understand "English"..

However woke up in the midnight to find bedbugs, my sleep went for a toss. Few people are sensitive to bedbug bites and i'm one among them. Except... More

It is very close to US consulate. Can be walked down comfortably. Menaka restaurant food is good. Basically best choice for a vegetarian. Complimentary breakfast is also a good spread. Can not get morning coffee before 6 AM. Staff is generally very senior people. Had no hassles with them. The bathroom needs thorough acid wash. It looks very stale with... More

Located in the heart of the city, Hotel Palmgrove is a favorite among old timers. The entire compound has a nostalgic feel to it. The restaurant serves some very good vegetarian food. The rooms are big and not very expensive. Service can leave you frustrated at times.

The Palmgrove is a wonderful homely and business meeting point for many in Chennai. Situated at the heart of Chennai, it is a hotel well established over many years. Palmgrove has facilities for conducting Wedding, Reception and Conferences. .

Was visiting Chennai to get my US visa renewed again.. My dad has been a customer of this place for a long time and had reserved it for us... The hotel is a time capsule and gives you a feel for how things in Chennai were in the 70's maybe 80's... Good things: - Very close to the embassy... About... More

Marina beach is very near 30 mins by bus and Shopping area T.Nagar is just 3km. The best thing of the hotels is the complimentary Buffet Breakfast which... More
