For me this hotel's vantage point is location. So close to my work place that it is very convenient. That's the mail reason for selecting this hotel. Breakfast was very good. Rooms are spacious, but a bit dated and could do little sprucing. But overall a good and comfortable hotel.

I stayed at the Ambassador Pallava on my last visit to Chennai. Though it was a little difficult to reach, it felt nice after reaching the hotel. The first look is royal and I must add that the old world charm is retained. The rooms though are due for renovation as do the washrooms. The stay was comfortable and the... More

It is a centrally located hotel with large rooms. The rooms are comfortable except for the fact that the AC controls do not work. It is either cold or no AC. The upkeep of the rooms can be improved. The room service is prompt and the portion sizes are very large. One would find it difficult to complete a soup... More
