“Great hotel at affordable cost”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2010

Was pleasantly surprised at its great room at an affordable price. Spacious and modern amenities in the room.
About 30 min from the main road has good eating places nearly. Only one restaurant though, but a very good gym is an added treat. Breakfast complimentary and very good in local flavour.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2010

I regularly travel to chennai for my sales visits. This time Hotel Ambika was recommended by my collegue in Chennai. I chosen to stay due to his suggestion.

Up to my surprise, the rates are well budgetory and as hotel is newly renovated with all staff newly appointed, it was really a surprise experience for me.

Rooms are elegant, calm quite with centralised A/c.

All required amenities as refrigerator, oven, safet locker, iron with stand, cofee maker, amenities in wash room are provided in room.

Interiors are really like tradition indian style so it's "different' from other hotels.

Food quality is good, even north indian food were prepared as per norht indian spices.

Room service, respnceness, warmth and time to deliver is pretty good.

Hotel has a gym, spa and ayurvaidic massage facility so that you can relax as per your time availability.

Nice experience to enjoy.

This property is over 11 years old. Staff is very polite and extremely helpful. Wifi is free in rooms. Though hotel is a 3 star. It can easily be graded as a 4 star. Amenities in room and bathroom are of good standard. Hotel offers both smoking and non-smoking rooms. Hotel also has gym and spa. Gym is complimentary. There is a Tea / Coffee maker in room. Housekeeping was prompt in providing more towels and tea / coffee mixes. The restaurant offered an excellent range of dishes for breakfast (complimentary). The only thing that was of concern is that the chairs need to be refurbished and some of the power points do not work.

We booked Ambica Empire for my friends's marriage. I went with my friends. We enjoyed a lot there. The rooms are very cool and the it was very attractive. Even in the hot summer, i did not think we could get this kind of hotel. It was very nice experience.
One more thing, the food served for breakfast and dinner was amazing. It was superb.

I missed my family to bring here. Because it was so nice to be here. We came with our owned cars. The parking faclity was so good.

We realized Wonderful interiors, very good service and excellent dining too. We feel reasonable priced too for a luxury hotel.

The people from this hotel are very cool and encouraged to participate in many events conducted by them. It was so energeitc programmes, we really enjoyed more.

Thanks a lot for being stayed at Ambica Empire.

I had a chance to visit & stay @ Hotel ambica empire, chennai when i went there for my friends marriage..!

The first thing i liked about this hotel was the on smoking rooms.. and the service given by them was outstanding.. The service guys are real professionals..

I stayed with two of my friends in the deluxe double room. Rooms are maintained very well. Rooms are centrally air conditioned. room service is available all 24 hrs. Each room has a LCD tv.. It was a good experience to stay there.

But my friend paid the bil of 5400 for one day..! :-)..

Which sounds a bit expensive for two days.. But with the excellent service given by them, its worth staying with your family.
