It is located about 5 minutes walk from Egmore and 10minutes drive from Chennai Central. This is the only plus point if you are reaching Chennai by train/bus.
The hotel is not maintained well. The rooms are not so great for the price. If you need a sound sleep without any disturbance then perhaps this is not nice place as you can hear the trains running and vehicle honking from your room.
My room was not cleaned even after requesting twice. The restaurant is open for breakfast from 7:30am but on all the days of my stay they were not ready even at 8am.
Mosquitos!!!! Everywhere in the lobby and the restaurant. Luckily not in the rooms!
So simply avoid if possible.
