The only advantage is that it is near the airport and has a free pickup-drop facility from the airport. For a few hours stay it is ok. if you need to have a few hours sleep before catching an early morning flight opt for this hotel in Pallavaram.Service is good...courteous...but rooms are not well maintained and bathrooms are better less...

I am senior with YHA and overseas experience. I also worked as Public park Manager for a state. I came as pilgrim and used that site. The value is quite adequate with closeness to varied Religious facilities and train and staff helpfulness. I think some of other reviews are bit bitter and unfair. Quiet clean but needs painting and some... More
