Despite reading all the negative reviews we went ahead and stayed there. Just for 1 reason - Menaka Restaurant. Apparently the restaurant has some what lost its charm. 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

Stayed here in this facility. This facility is more than 50 years old and caters to the needs of mid income and low income traveller with various levels of room rentals available. The food is good. The biggest advantage is that this facility is near the US embassy / visa facilitation centers(a walkable distance from this facility). Overall

Hi, I needed to go to Chennai for a one night stay and chose Palmgrove because it was within walking distance of where I needed to go. That plus the fact that I have stayed there before. Over the years, the hotel seems to have declined in its service and quality. The rooms need upgrading for the price charged. The... More

Palmgrove Hotel, situated at a very central and convenient location boasts of a very comfortable and homelike stay. It has a unique tradition of walk in comfort without prior reservation.The rooms are, in fact suites, large and adequately furnished where comfort takes the front seat. Not luxurious but practical, it is like a home away from home.The beauty is that... More

As a part of our recent business visit to Chennai, my counterpart suggested to meet at the Palmgrove Hotel. Really surprising property in the heart of the city. The space they spared for the car parking in the front is worth billions? Menaka -the restaurant was almost full and we selected a table and sat with a fear of expensive... More

The hotel was appearing well priced and friendly, and we were happy till the night arrived. At mid night, my wife suddenly realised that she was being bit by some thing. After switching on the lights, we were... More
