The hotel is not terrible, but it's not good enough for the price I paid. The hotel does not have any garden where you can rest, and it's juts off a very busy street It's not far from Marina Beach that you can reach by auto rickshaw

Rooms were not worth its price of 3k for a night..not sure about front side rooms. Damp walls, leakage in toilets and smelly beds were the highlights of my one night stay..cooperative service and location is the only plus point...repent not spending another extra 1k and staying at the opp 2 star hotel maris

Chose this place as it is very near to the U S Consulate, and so is ideal for visa related work. They offered a free drop to the consulate as part of the deal , however they will provide you with an auto ride !! Be warned, the auto chap will charge you double the rate for the way back,... More

Overall a very good hotel... The staff is well behaved and the hotel itself has two or more restaurants providing Chinese and North Indian in Chennai with discount. The Chinese food was excellent... However some setbacks... They said that the breakfast is complementary, which by default means buffet. NBut they only give omlet or idli for breakfast.
