Neighborhood
Vadapalani
A densely populated neighbourhood of the city, Vadapalani is an important junction for all local travellers since one of the main bus terminals of Chennai is located here. Most popular for the city’s prolific film studios and the Vadapalani Andavar Temple, the busy streets here are a great spot to bump into some of the big stars who visit the temples here whenever a film is going to get released. Studded with some of the oldest schools, hospitals and colleges, this residential area with a strong pilgrim vibe is popular among the locals for some of the best mall shopping and as an entertainment hub with the biggest multiplexes in the vicinity.

Though we had paid everything in advance check in took half an hour and my husband who was on wheel chair had to wait in the lobby. Cockroaches were crawling free in the room and bathroom was dirty. Food was below average and overpriced.over all experience was very bad.

The hotel is good with an awesome lobby, nice restaurant, and above average food and that is where the praise stops. For travellers like me who's make room stay payments online at the time if booking, they make you feel you will run away without paying for what you ate. The hotel doesn't charge the room guest to the room and insists on payment there and then. Even for the room service, you have to pay at the time of delivery of food . Will never come back to this hotel. This way of treatment of guests who have already paid is ridiculous and deragotory.

I booked a room for three nights and came hotel to do checkin at 10 am in the morning. Terrible front office staff, not even have a courtesy to ask the name and simply rejected check inn would be at 12 only. When I asked for any extra charge for two hours it is conveyed to me it’s 3000plus taxes. Such a unethical behaviour..... waiting in the reception as the booking is non refundable 😂😂😂

Located very close to the Koyembedu Bus stand, which makes it easier to reach. The interiors are wonderful but rooms don't live upto the expectations. Wifi is as slow as ever! Hospitality is good enough and food is also tasty. Some attention is required to details of the rooms as a person gets an amazing feel when he walks into the reception but the whole mood changes with the kind of room one enters. It needs to work on wifi speeds as well. Just beacuse it's complimentary does not justify the speeds. Rest all fine. It was a comfortable stay!

We booked the room at Embica EmpireChennai, through MMT and it was MMTcertified. The moment we enter the reception it was very beautiful but we entered the room it was pathetic as if somebody have masterbated on sofa and walls were patchy. So we request hotel to change room but they werereluctant. So we used our North Indian skill and threaten to complaint then they changed the room. According to that room was upgraded room but that was also not worth it as compare to the money we paid.
