This hotel is 19 years old...I have stayed at this hotel many times...Over the years it has worn out and the management has not taken the responsibilty to maintain it well...But for many years this has been the best hotel to stay in the Tambaram Area...Advantage is that it is walkable distance from Tambaram railway station and Bus Station...The hotel has three floors and each floor is designed in different themes...First Floor-Razia Sultan(Mughal), Second Floor-Rani Padmini(Chettinad) and Third Floor-Queen Victoria(British) respectively...Breakfast is complimentary at the Victorian Restaurant...And the food is average....They provide complimeantary Wi-Fi only in the lobby area...People who want to attend the annual international convention of "The Pentecostal Mission", this is the best hotel to stay nearby.

Seems to be the only hotel near Tambaram, so is booked out mostly. Rooms are average : spacious but old fashioned and badly needs an overhaul. Toilet was clean but very old.Some additional space would have been a plus

AC remote wasn't working, and could do with better TV set.

Complimentary breakfast is a complete disappointment : no continental items, mainly serve idli and dosa.

Normal restaurant has a good menu and tasty food. Slightly oily food in case you are health conscious.!

Room service is very prompt. Food gets delivered in <10 mins.

Average experience in total.

Room Tip: Each floor seems to be furnished on a particular theme.

My friend made a stopover for dinner in Henkala before I could take the flight back home. We chose the buffet for dinner and it had variety of veg choices and the Kaju Masala was really good. The price is also moderate and is a good place to go for lunch/dinner.

I stayed in Hotel Henkala a 2 star hotel near Tambaram bus stand during a 2 day trip to MM Nagar automobile hub near Chennai recently. The room was o.k for the price, but there was no wi-fi ,no fax etc which is essential for a business hotel which they claim to be! The food was tolerable but the reception staff were not very cordial. But I have to say that parking space for your vehicle was really good and safe.
You have to think twice before staying next time.
