At Fortel Chennai, a classy stay is not only possible but also guaranteed. The interiors of this hotel are elegant and chic, and the rooms feature amazing colours and luxurious comfort. The best thing about this hotel is its hotel staff that is always ready to help you no matter what you need. Fortel Chennai is also strategically located so... More

Probably best choice in the area of "airport" train station. About 20-25 minutes to aiport. Staff was very kind, helpful. We enjoyed stay. Rather high price as if for Chennai. On the other hand You do not get anything better in a bit less money. Nice wifi strength.

My stay was for a night. I stayed in the 9th floor. The outside view from my room was nice. Room was clean and neat. The speed of the complimentary wi-fi was good. The gym was next to my room. The staff were friendly. The hotel is just next to Egmore station and its location is convenient. Overall, the stay... More

Nice place to stay on a business trip. Value for money. The advantage is this Hotel offers 24 hrs check in facility which many of the Hotels do not offer. And if you are coming by train it is just few steps away from Egmore Railway Station.

Fortel Chennai is a fantastic hotel situated at a short walk from Marina beach. The great location made it really easy for me to move around in the city. The staff of the hotel was friendly and suggested some wonderful places for meals and such. I recommend booking your stay on Travelguru because it’s a simple process and it saves... More

I stayed at Fortel for two days and it was an unpleasant experience. The rooms were dusty, excessive lint from work out sheets and pillow covers. Faucets were rusted and broken. I had infact asked for a change in room and they promptly denied. The front desk was not courteous at all.

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
