Clean environment and friendly staff .The front office is helpful in accommodating even if they were fully booked. Breakfast is free and worth a try . Hence a good hotel in and around the Mylapore. Do visit and enjoy.

The linen did not seem fresh to start with; on placing an order for room service, I was told it would take 25 minutes. At 10:30 pm I called to cancel the order of nothing fancy but a simple curd rice; then it was served in 10 minutes. Breakfast was a big let down. It's located in a prime place;... More

The hotel is crowded by the market place and hence it was too noisy. Not at all calm. Disturbed many times. The breakfast is pathetic. I ordered my company not to book this hotel for me again. Pls take care guys. Many other good hotels are available for this tariff.

Greeted by the over enthusiastic front office executive, who took around 25 minutes to handover the key card when only 2 of us were present for check in and our rooms were pre-booked by the organizers of the conference. Buffet dinner was kinda alright but nothing great. Everything was cold and when I asked the person to atleast reheat the... More

Our stay in this basically average hotel was rather spoilt by being charged 1501 rupees for half a bottle of the worst wine that I have tasted in years. Subsequently in Port Blair I encountered the same wine (which I left severely alone!) at 965 rupees for a full bottle. We also got off to a bad start when arrived... More

Let me begin by saying that the hotel is situated in the most weird part of the city. Since i don't belong to Chennai, all i can say is that i could see nothing around it other than small shops and some what of a slum. Let's enter the hotel now, looks like a typical set up from a set... More

The hotel has to improve the service. For me the internet was not working, the TV channels has problems, the window door could not be bolted. The breakfast was normal for the price paid. location is good, central from any point.
