We read the reviews and went with mixed feelings but were pleasantly surprised: best rooms we had on our tour through southern India! They must have been freshly renovated, everything looked new, worked and the AC was really quite and no annoying draft either! The bathroom is very big, with a walk-in shower with different shower heads. The wifi was...

I am a regular at Fortune Pandiyan hotel and have been staying here for more than 10 years. The hotel has a great location and is within a 5-10 minute drive to my work in KK Nagar and Anna Nagar.

Old property with stinking corridors. The free breakfast was tasteless and inedible. Front desk does not issue receipt for payments unless asked for specifically. Room service awfully slow. Housekeeping staff won't follow requests. Overall, not worth staying here. Look for other options.

Decent rooms. Fine chettinad cusine available. They have a big gym in their annex but it's open to paid subscription along with hotel guests so get a bit crowded. Breakfast is basic. I have had much better at other ITC Fortune properties. Service is well meaning but a tad slow.
