Good location, opposite Express Avenue shopping mall. We went there just for one night. I was travelling with 2 indian guys. In the middle of the night, the bell rang, people were banging at the door. I got up, and was suprised to see 2 cops and the hotel manager when I opened the door. I don't speak tamil so didn't understand what they wanted. We still don't know what happened and why the cops came.
Room is clean, bathroom too. Staff is ok.

Stayed here just for a day and a night. Overall experience was not so good. As while check in at 11 pm. The reception was not attentive. Then I got a room which didn't have even a window for ventilation.

Moreover that when I asked for dinner, I got a rude reply that they serve food only upto 10. I went out for dinner.
When I came back there was no blanket in my room. After asking I got one which was not clean. That was more shocking. But I was dead tired so I slept. They didn't bother to give water and glass also in the room. No soap no amenities.
To get hot water I asked at least 3 times then I got the hot water as they switch off the guiser connection.

While check out I tried to complain but reception didn't pay attention so I thought to be quite.

Overall terrible place.

With my wife, I had stayed in this hotel for 4 days last week. It is located in front of New College , closely located to Hospital Bus Stop of Royapetta. Initially I was worried when I reached in the hotel as the outer view and lift was not attractive. But my stay changed my views.

It was a good hotel for people those look for budget hotel. Cost starts here from Rs 1100 /- onwords.

The hotel room service uses the nearby hotel ( probably their hotel) for providing food to guests on order. One of the best food testwise if you rate the food. We are very happy.

There is travel agency closely working with the hotel who has a desk on first floor. One can seek his assistance to plan sight seeing.

Stay is very secured here .

The hotel was under renovation and they wee adding another 10 room in groubd floor and glsamour / decorative arrangements to frontview . It will add values to hotel.

Hotel management needs to improve house keeping management to provide a good stay exprience for guest.

Reception and room service staffs were very good.

Room Tip: Just take the guidance of the hotel staff. Go with them and see the rooms.

Not a good hotel.
*had to wait atleast 30-45 minutes to get the room
*rooms were dirty and there was plumbing work going on
*photos on the Internet/booking site does not match. They show neat clean rooms in net and in reality these rooms are worse than you imagine
*asked the reception guy to clean the room and bathroom after the plumbing work which was happening even after checking in the room, they did not want to do

I along with my wife reached hotel in the morning at around 6 AM. Hotel door was closed. after 5 minutes, guard opened the gate. No one available at the reception. When receptionist came and we showed the Cleartrip Voucher, he got confused and asked us to wait on a very filthy sofa. We waited for 5 minutes there and again showed the Cleartrip Voucher. To our surprise, he informed that the Hotel is full and room is not available. Then he asked us to shift to another nearby hotel. When we reached that hotel, we were asked to pay for the auto fare. This new hotel was also not upto the mark. overall a very bad experience. DO NOT CONSIDER THIS HOTEL FOR YOUR STAY.
