Old property and centrally located. Thats where the entire experience about the hotel stops. One should clearly ask before check in whether ac is working or not, whether washroom has been cleaned or not. I found that lots of rooms have these recurring problems. Food is also not upto mark with the breakfast spread looked like stale. Though I must... More

This is one of the best hotels of Chennai on 100 ft road. It is decorated in ethnic style which a lot of carvings. Best rooms and located in the heart of the city. A good place for stay. The morning breakfast is excellent.

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

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
