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

Easy to find location, had a smooth check in and the rooms were exceeding expectations considering the fact that I had booked the hotel on a very... More

The main title more or less says the entire stuff. IRS just a budget hotel. It was clean that's the best part. The food is above average. Overall its a nice budget hotel with some construction and final touches being imperfect. The staff is OK. So worth as a budget hotel.
