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

We stayed in this hotel with an intent to attend the U.S. VISA interview, as it is very close to the consulate... 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

This hotel is an old destination, it has no frills! Its simple and very neat and clean. You need a bit of patience with the service but they do a fantastic job. The taste of food is great. U will love the breakfast. Try the Thalli ( plate meal) its worth the taste and the price is a steal!

We never stayed at the hotel, but ate two or three times there for dinner. We were foreigners in a huge busy dining area with lots of Indians. The wait staff was quite warm and efficient. The prices were reasonable and the vegetarian food quite tasty. Loved the old school charm of the hotel in general. Would go again if... More

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.
