For breakfast they have a nice buffet. I'll be back soon. It is my home in Chennai. The only down side is those horrible rickshaw drivers... More

The only issue we had were of the wait staff who had expectations of being more than what we tipped. Slamming the room door all the time... More

I had a balcony, safe, ac and fan. The bathroom was quite clean. A laundry service was available - I had clothes ironed but they brought them back folded up... More

But two things disappointed us: The hotel staff tend to hang around waiting for gratuity (tips) which... More
