“Not good. OK for a day or two”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2010

Had stayed there for a day in February 2009 with my wife. The hotel is quite cheap, I think I paid around Rs 2000 per room per night. But the rooms are quite old and worn out. AC was not working properly and was quite noisy too. We booked this place as we wanted to be there just for a night (Had a connecting flight to Singapore). Needed a budget hotel for just a one night sleep and I think for that purpose it's quite OK.

Service, rooms and food were great. Old British type building and neatly maintained.
Commuting is great near bus stand and railway station of Tambaram...

Though the restaurant and common areas like lobby and floor landing area are maintained well, the rooms surely need an upgrade. The false panelling on room roofs have started peeling off and may fall down any moment. The carpetted rooms are smelling foul, whereas the ones with tiles are better off. The toilets are the most horrible. Though the hotel may have been better off sometime back, it surely need some house-keeping now. The good part of the hotel is that it is near Tambaran junction, with bus-stand and other facilities close by.
