located probably in the absolute center of chennai. but surprisingly calm and quiet and yet accessible. roughly between Harley Davidson showroom and Louis Vutton showrooms , that kind of sums up the locality. The rooms per se are beautiful on the inside. the bellboy, who absolutely stole the show- cant remember his name but you'l know when u see him.... More

Really loved the place :) I loved the calm and quiet. The staff were really courteous, polite and eager to help in any way possible. I found the room very tidy. The only minor setback I faced here was giving the taxi drivers my location. I only knew the address as Wallace Garden, Nungambakkam, Chennai opposite to Nilgiris, but very... More
