Nice hotel, except for the mosquitoes. Stayed in the suite room and was disappointed by the amount of mosquitoes. They should put in some all out / mosquito repellent. Otherwise its a nice place. Has 10 Downing street and some other shops n restaurants close by. The manager, the staff and the the room boys were all very helpful.

Couples enter club free singles charged 1000 Indian rupees, Just a small reception counter manned until about midnight, approx 12 rooms and the whole place is looked after by two small boys who are very helpful and humble,...

There were roaches on the tables and in the bathroom. the linen in the bathroom was dirty and yellowed. No toiletries were provided and there was no hot water as well. There are...

Yeah. Have all the fun from downstairs, 10 Downing Street, drink, drink and eat all that yummy food and try crawling one floor up to a rather gloomy but well kept big room. Expect not much of service as there are just a couple of boys running errands. No bed coffee can be expected even if requested. The staff seems...

I traveled to Chennai in November and stayed in Hotel Kences Inn on November 22, for a night. The room was surprisingly big and reasonably keen, although I will rate 2 out of 5 for the bathroom. The staff is lazy but friendly and there is no in-house kitchen except for tea/coffee service, which is also average. There is a...
