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.

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

There was no hot water in the evening and was told that it could be arranged but hot water would come in the morning! And yes, it did come in the morning!! First room allotted on 6th floor (6023) was having pungent... More

The Window was facing the 100 Ft Road... More
