Ambassador Pallava hotel is located in a prime area of Chennai (i.e) in Egmore. The Hotel might not please you immediately considering the old looks of it when viewed from outside. But take my word the real beauty inside will grow on you when you get inside. This hotel is definitely old, you can say that looking at the interiors,... More

Yes, this hotel is an old one. Yes, this hotel might need modernisation. But, what it is currently is a delightful experience. Every nook and corner of the hotel speaks of a tale gone by. Every employee is courteous and very pleasing. Please note: the employees here are polite and always smiling, not for the same reasons as the employees... More

It is an elegant hotel...not antique, but with clean rooms in a classic style. A great full meal breakfast is served until late morning and the staff was always gentle, smilling and seemed very happy to help us when we needed.
