The location is very good. Centrally located and closer to major shopping complexes, government offices, this is a good hotel at an affordable price. Maybe the price offered to me was an off-season discounted price. It is very close to T. Nagar where many shopping malls, shops and restaurants are situated. If you want to roam on your own, be...

The room service is prompt and unfailingly polite...when when small kids call and disturb them unnecessarily! ! The breakfast buffet is adequate...but their obvious strength is the south Indian food. My only suggestion would be to improve... More
