Sweet staff but over decorated hotel, bad restaurant (except Green Chillies which is good). Smelly pillows...argh... Good location and good staff (in the restaurant too slow) The staff is very helpful, the rooms are silent, bathroom is good. Second time I stay and really, most probably last

With the convenience and appearance We may choose this Hotel's Coffee shop ( Green Chilies) over a brief business discussion. On arrival, You will find a SLEEPING room which receives you with lot of empty tables & chairs. It shows this coffee shop does not attract business people. Because the Food served here seems to be sub-standard and most of... More

Ambika Empire, truely an empire with lush interiors and a true 3 star feel. Centralised cooling, view of the city through window, clean atmosphere, yummy bites, and so on. Nevertheless to say, nice hotel for family as well as business travellers. Hence in terms of the interiors and look, one will really enjoy staying at the hotel. Also every bathroom... More

Aircon is central and temp cannot be controlled or rather controls don't work. Alleys have carpets which are poorly maintained.You can reach most of your business location from here, little bit noisy because it is in the heart of the city, advisable to take room on upper floors. Staff is highly hospitable, they go out of the way to make... More

Includes a party hall for celebrations. Location of the hotel is decent. If you are a north India, you might not like the food here. But I believe there is... More

Relatively clean. The rooms are large. Beds are ok. My bathroom had stains and what looked like rust. There was... More

Ambica empire has become my preferred choice on my business trip to Chennai. I found the employees highly hospitable. They go out of the way to make you feel comfortable. Having said the plus, I would also like to highlight the short falls. 1. The breakfast menu is so monotonous. The quality was also a turn down. However, I found... More
