Stayed for two days and enjoyed. Hotel is vast and looks a locality. Rooms are ordinary and comfortable. South food is enjoyable and tasty; add low price and restaurant is a big plus. Will stay again for food and evening stroll in hotel campus.

The main attraction of this hotel is its food which is extremely famous but this time, I was not convinced about this also. All in all... More

Probably one of the good old days hotel available in Chennai. Close to Egmore Station therefore nearly in the heart of the city. The rooms and waiters are still old style though improved/renovated. Best thing about the place is the Complimentary Vegetarian Breakfast.

It's a very old hotel with spacious rooms. Breakfast and food is very good. Rooms are clean and have a good parking space. Very good marriage hall. Pls avoid giving tips to the staffs over there.
