Stayed here for a business trip in February 2015. Breakfast was good. The living experience was also good. The room was clean and the staff was friendly. The food is reasonably priced and tasted good as well. The hotel is really close to Egmore station which makes it very convenient for travel. The only problem would be that the locality... More

I have stayed here for 2 days and was the great experience since breakfast was not the part of the package hence unaware about it. But the staff was courteous and very polite. The property is good and maintained. You must select the rooms on the higher floor both side the views as same. Overall great experience

Recently, i visited hotel fortel from 16/01/2015 to 24/01/2015 on an official trip. I found a very unfriendly staff, not ready to listen to you properly. They don't even care to make your stay comfortable. One short height duty manager don't know how to talk with the guests. He also went into a heated argument with me. He always tried... More

Good hotel, gr8 location, nice staff, free wifi, clean rooms. Among the top choice for a stay in egmore at this price. Highly recommended. If you have to stay in egmore go with fortel or ramada. I stayed at ramada 15 days ago , so in comparison if ramada is 90/100 then fortel is 80/100.

Good location. Booked thru makemytrip. Check in and checkout was a breeze (less then couple of minutes). Stayed for a single night. Rooms were neat. Courteous and helpful staff. Did not use any other facilities. No Complaints....Real value for money.

Fortel is located At Gandhi Irwin Road, Egmore which is a good location if you travelling via Rail. The Infrastructure is good and so is the staff. Rooms are tidy, so are the washrooms. For someone looking to stay for business, this would be an ideal location. The reception did demand a full advance before our check-in, which we found... More
