Overall experience was good. An area where they can improve forthwith is the response time for executing room service requests and customer requests for clean towels replacement etc. I am sure the above anamoly can be attended to forthwith

Hotel also offered some discount. It was perhaps a good hotel some 10 years back and as our taste evolved on minimum expectations, the hotel failed to live up. I would... More

The hotel infrastructure itself is not bad. But it is in a crowded part of Chennai, one way street and next to a noisy temple.... More

When we reached there late night, they served us cold dinner even after repeatedly reminding them that we ordered food. And don't... More

This is easily the worse place i'm stayed in. The folks at the reception were ill-mannered. I had gone to Chennai as there was a death in the family. I had booked 8 rooms, initially 2 rooms. When I checked in , I informed the staff that people will be coming in throughout the day and that my husband would... More
