Nice hotel with an average restaurant, good location and decent rooms considering its Tirupati!!
Improvement can be done, but i guess due to the Hotel being in Tirupati, the management probably is not pressed to improve it further.
Overall a good comfortable stay. Rooms are neat.
Room service is okay.
Food can be definitely improved, especially the buffet.

I and my wife stayed at this hotel while on a trip to Tirupati Balaji. The hotel is located bang opposite the bus stand and the traffic noise got to me after a while. The noise went on till late night plus there is some monotonous Sitar music that precedes every announcement at either the bus stand or the train station. The rooms are ok but certainly not worthy of a four star rating. The lunch buffet (veg) is delicious but will set you back by around 425 per person. The bathroom was average with very average tiles.

Room Tip: Carry your own electric kettle if you like your tea. The hotel does not provide one.

We were on our way to Tirumala for darshan while we stayed over at Tirupati. We chose Fortune Kences and have no regrets for the same. We were greeted very politely by the front desk and our check-in was done very smoothly and fast, we were accommodated in a Fortune club Room which was quite spacious, clean and neat with clean linen and well sorted out room.
beds were very comfortable and so were the pillows, after standing in the que at tirumala for 3 hours and finishing the darshan we were tired and all we wanted is a good sleep which we got once we crashed into our beds for a few hours we were so fresh and ready to go on with our journey.
Toilets r also very clean n neat and all kinds of toiletries are provided in case one forgets something
Food is also very good we had all our meals there and there was an option of either having the buffet or going al - a- carte.
We chose to have the buffet everytime and it was a good big spread ranging from indian to chinese to south indian, good food and very well served hot.

Overall i guess this is the best option one could choose for a comfortable and lovely stay at Tirupati.

Fortune Kences is a nice property. You will find newly renovated, spacious rooms with TV but no mini bar or coffee maker. Their room service is very prompt. You get your money’s worth (we paid 5,500/INR for a triple room for one night). However, as always when in India; you need to check under the sheets! Their pillows were very old and stained so I had to get them to put 3 covers one on top of the other. Bed sheet had stains and they promptly changed them. Even the crockery; first they brought some old stained ones but when we complained they brought us very nice crockery.
Staff is not hotel trained so don’t expect them to give you star service. But they are very courteous and ready to learn. I had to tell them not to hold the glass by the mouth and to hold the handle of the tea cup instead of the mouth area! Very few spoke English.
Best part is they are open to suggestions and recommendations. Willing to change and grow. It is a nice property and with proper guidance they can improve. For your information this is the best property in that area!
So, be free to demand what you want!

Room Tip: This is the best hotel if you are going to Tirupati Temple.

FORTUNE!!!!!!!!!! Don't expect anything out of this...brand. I am still not sure how Fortune could operate this hotel. This might be one of the worst hotels operated by Fortune. None of the features that needs to be taken care for an Star category hotel are cared. Right from the Noise levels to the staff.

Room Tip: Not Recommended... Atleast avoid the Road facing rooms

You cant compare hotels in Titupati with hotels on other major city.
The hotel belongs to ITC ( Fortune brand) but I must admit that this must be the lowest ranked hotel Fortune property on an all india basis. Dont expect ITC Fortune kind of service if you check in here. BUT if you compare with what you get in other Tirupati hotels, well this hotel ranks higher.
Rooms are spacious with no minimbar or tea/coffee kit.
Restautant on the ground floor is OK and buffet options are very few. For a person with sweet tooth, the deserts on menu were quite a dis-appointment.
With a fare of appx 3.5k, this is apprx double of what you pay as compared to the next best hotel.
Too close to bus stand and hence quite noisy. Avoid rooms facing the front.

Room Tip: avoid rooms facing the front/road sides
