To start with the positives it is a walking distance from the consulate and close to all the city activity. There is an inhouse restaurant and some better restaurants just outside. Morning buffet was quite god. There it ends, unfortunately. The rooms were not as clean as you would expect for a family hotel. The towels and sheets looked as... More

When I stepped in to chennai, I didn't have an idea where to stay. When I entered reception, I felt I had gone back to 80s. As I asked to see the room,I got the assistance within seconds,and obviously was impressed. And room was pretty decent,spacious and clean. If you are looking for five star facilities go for any other... More

I had stayed here for 1 night inorder to attend US Visa interview. I had a bad experience ,received calls to my extension at midnight for all wrong reasons,Mattress and bedsheets were rotten ,FrontDesk can hardly speak english.Food is average not so great. Only plus is, it is near to consulate,almost walk able and takes 10 mins.

The food in the Restaurant is very good. Unlimited thali is fantastic. Very tasty and filling. There is good breakfast and dinner also. Snacks very tasty. Hotel rooms are not very clean. Maintenance is poor. The reception is also not very modern. Located in a very good place, nearer to many business and shopping areas and very near US Consulate.... More

I reserved the rooms over the phone. Paid ₹2500 per day and ₹675 per extra bed. This hotel is really really old and dirty. The towels were bleached so badly that they had become crispier than the masala dosas that I ate there. Toilets were stained. Walls looked uneven like they had concealed a dead body in them. If you... More

This hotel is in need of an upgradation, both in terms of furniture & overall ambiance. As we entered, it felt like the 1970s, with a large but untastefully furnished reception area, the furniture seemed atleast 50 years old. The rooms are big but again clumsily furnished, not so clean either. Food was ok, breakfast is complimentary. Has good parking... More

This hotel of yester years has a old world charm with lot of space around. It has quite a bit of lung space and a good vegetarian restaurant at medium prices. The dining hall has been refurbished and the food is good and serves nice vegetarian food. The meals are sumptuous at around 145 rupees. The staff may not be... More

Palmgrove is a quaint hotel frozen in time by about 40 years. Nevertheless, for mere 203 bucks one can have great buffet breakfast. The hotel provides fruit juice, two types of fruits, bread toast with butter/jam, pongal, kesri bath, upma, idli-vada, dosa, tea/ coffee. Consistently good taste is maintained. Good restaurant to patronise frequently.

Just a average hotel in the center of the city, only advantage is that its just walkable for the visa consulate office. As others have mentioned you will find the following: Pros:- Huge clean rooms, walk away from bus stop, easy to locate. Really awesome food and a cuisine of veg delight for breakfast(complimentary for all). Cons:- Look out for... More
