We stayed there for 2 nights unfortunately our stay was that long and was winter season else would have moved into a different Hotel. Parking space is good. Staff response is awful. I accidentally stepped into the kitchen of the hotel and it was pathetic. No clean rooms, AC not working!!

Its a nice , comfortable hotel hotel situated next to the chennai central railway station. The area around the hotel is not great. But the hotel is well decorated and maintained. The restaurant is also great with free breakfast on offer.
