I had checked into this place overnight to catch a morning flight out from Chennai. I was greeted by a dimly lit room with a damp smell. There were roaches on the tables and in the bathroom. the linen in the bathroom was dirty and yellowed. No toiletries were provided and there was no hot water as well. There are... More

Yeah. Have all the fun from downstairs, 10 Downing Street, drink, drink and eat all that yummy food and try crawling one floor up to a rather gloomy but well kept big room. Expect not much of service as there are just a couple of boys running errands. No bed coffee can be expected even if requested. The staff seems... More

I traveled to Chennai in November and stayed in Hotel Kences Inn on November 22, for a night. The room was surprisingly big and reasonably keen, although I will rate 2 out of 5 for the bathroom. The staff is lazy but friendly and there is no in-house kitchen except for tea/coffee service, which is also average. There is a... More

We were welcomed by a cockroach crawling over the table, Ants for some reason laced the towell and the pillows,... More

The pub is on the groundfloor of this... More
