Wanted the share the experience we had during our banquet party on 10th of Jan. A Very pathetic show by the crew. The basics of hospitality was not taken care by crew, If there were any crew. I had to run to the manager every 15 mins to get things done. The Booking was from 10:30 am to 3:00 pm.... More

We had to take an emergency halt at Chennai & only this hotel had availability. The hotel looked like one in the horror films. I guess only me & my husband were staying in this hotel. It was surprising as all other hotels were fully occupied but only this hotel had the availability. As we didn't have choice, we had... More

Selected the hotel based on Location and an attractive offer online. Location was practically not the best due to constructions and one ways. Had to take U- turn's' to reach the hotel. Otherwise it is on the main road. Was surprised to see the chairs upside down in the room. Bathroom was cleaned, but very old and shabby. (Don't know... More

I choose this hotel just because of its location and after seeing its a star hotel price was really attractive. Little did I know this place would be a dirty, reeking of rotting sting and unfriendliest staff were to be the only memory I would ever carry of the place.

Whilst the reception desk staff was courteous and friendly the 2 day stay for a group of 50 people was a complete disaster. Unclean rooms, dirty linen , non functional AC'S , RATS and COCKROACHES in the rooms was a terrible experience. The F& B was not equipped to handle the group load. They were running out of glasses, spoons... More

Pathetic rooms! Cockroaches in rooms, filthy smell! They changed my room atleast 4 times before they could prepare for a decent room for my stay.. As my wife got in the bed, her skin became all red, and itchy. The bedsheets were full of stains of urine, and looked unwashed. The rooms full of mosquitos and cockroaches. Other male guests...
