The reception - Check-in and Check-out are handled efficiently. Cleartrip vouchers accepted without any demure. The rooms have only basic amenities. No service. Telephone in the room not working. 15 year old TV without remote. Recommendation:- Just sleep for the night, take bath in the morning and get out. Room is too hot to stay during day time. (Non-AC room)

This is probably the worst hotel that I have ever experienced. The reception guy has no sense, doesn't know how to talk to the customers, Zero decency. The rooms smell & have not been maintained properly. The only thins is that the rooms are spacious.

The hotel is situated in the street exactly opposite to the Chennai Egmore Station and that is the only positive thing about it. Room condition was terrible and there is no room service kind of thing. Sheets were dirty and pillow covers were stinking. Never Ever Book This Hotel !

Spare yourself a horror experience and go somewhere else. The rooms are dirty, the sheets are with dozens of holes, the shower was broken, the heat in the room was unbearable, and a lot more problems. The staff was extremely rude, unhelpful and tried to find every possible way to get more money from me. the wifi wasn't working. Stay... More

i agree its cheap option right opposite to egmore railway station. But if you are traveling with your family its better to look for other options too . I choose it coz i just needed a stop over. staffs are friendly, location is a great advantage.
