Stayed there for a day during my visit to Chennai due to some medical treatment in Apollo Chennai. Well, I will say, this is one of the best or may be the best budget hotel nearby Apollo Hospital. It was clean and decent size room. Though Staff behaviour could have been better, but I think if you go for treatment,... More

1) Hoteliers are not very professional, they laughed when asked for a towel. 2) Room is very noisy and not clean. 3)Bed is not comfortable. Overall, not value for money. Have stayed at a lot of budget hotel... But this is just beyond basic expectations.

stayed here for 2 days. Room is very basic with a tv and an a/c (noisy one). Hotel location will be preferred if u want to live in a busy area with restaurants and traffic activity on both sides, otherwise opt for less noisier options in Chennai. Was a single female traveler and from that point of view the hotel... More
