Also they need to upgrade to better TV . ThE AC was excellent and much needed in the Chennai weather. Tips: don't opt fot the breakfast at the hotel... More

One of the worst of the Hotel to Stay . Horrible house keeping and terrible staff. just grand entry and equally worst ahead to see. Shady rooms, smelly & dirty linens with not functioning Rest Rooms. Totally waste of money .

I think they really need to renovate this place. Totally sucks. I am not getting words to describe how bad it is. I ordered omelet and there was no pepper, salt, sauce and cutlery to eat it. I really don't want to describe the bathroom. It looks like a haunted Manson.

To be honest there are not enough expletives in the English language to describe just what an absolute dump and rip-off this place is. Avoid at all costs: Key issues: 1- slow, slow slow and crappy elevators - bad layout and design in general, fire hazard 2- the carpets in the entire hotel should be replaced and all decor redone...

Friends, The most unpleasant stay in a Hotel in my life is Checkers, it was AWFUL with dirty rooms , dirty walls in the room, dirty toilet doors everything around was so dirty. Never ever try to step in this Hotel . we stayed for one night and it was the most Horror night for us .
