We stayed here for 2 nights, and on check-in, the service of the Front office staff was horrible ! They were not at all bothered to help us, was more interested in greeting another Indian group who was checking in. The bell boys & porters were far better, and was always with a smile, and ever so helpful. When asked... More

Hard to miss. Bank on the vadapalani road. The lobby looks very ornate. However, the rooms are very basic. The flooring was very cold with A/C running in full blast and no carpeted or wooden flooring. Other than that, the stay was quite good. Comfortable bed and clean room. The restaurant was a bit crammed. They had arranged the breakfast... More

They try and cheat you out of more money after your booking. Annoying room service too. I had a bad experience with them throughout my stay. The porters are helpful though. Front desk treat you like criminals

Our second stay at this hotel. The staff really care and respect foreigners. The chef went out his way to prepare Jain food for us. Food was nice (South Indian) and good spread for breakfast. We are small eaters and staff was concerned that food might be no good. We have to explain the food was excellent but we are... More

As soon as you enter this hotel you feel as is you have entered a palace. The hotel receptions is made to resemble the entrance of a palace with beautiful ceilings and antique art pieces all around. The rooms are clean and well kept. The food has got multiple options and is very tasty. The service though lags behind and... More

Stayed in this hotel for 9 days. Had problems with card key and power supply for first couple of days. Thanks to Mr. Shabir, who sorted out the problems effectively The rest of the stay was quite comfortable, The food was not up to the mark, but the restaurant staff were very friendly.

Just the name is heritage hotel. No staffs behave properly. Yellow water in bathroom in 7th Floor. Same breakfast everyday. Okay for 1 night stay. But look for Radha Regent on the same road instead of this. Both are same rate. INR 2500+taxes.
