Would recommend this hotel especially for those who go for visa stamping in Chennai consulate! Its walk able distance to consulate office and a quick ride to Bio-metric center. The service of the hotel was decent and the staff is courteous.

Decent Place to stay couple of nights. However, only Window A/c is available which will take some time to chill & Morning breakfast (complimentary) will have only sandwich. But you can order additionally by paying. Rooms are very decent & clean. Courteous staff & decent locality. Its very near to express avenue, Satyam theatre, T.Nagar & also Merina beach light...

A very average hotel. clean and okay are the only 2 words that come to my mind. Of-course the service is also not bad. No pick up facility from airport. Taxi service is also not very prompt. Need to book in advance.

Do not miss the all famous Saravana Bhavan if you do have time. Pretty close by and walk-able again!!. Service is pretty good and in... More
