“Great value but things could be better”
Reviewed May 15, 2011

I stayed in this hotel for two days. The only place that holds this place in good stead are the location (centrally in T-nagar, the heart of chennai) and the low charges.
The rooms are a far cry from being clean and the beds/pliiows are also lumpy and hence sleep quality is not good.
Breakfast is not complimentary and thats a minus.(even though its great in taste). There is no internet connectivity/wifi in the room.
Overall, if you are looking for a quick and cheap night stay at a good value, this is the ideal place as its well connected.

Just returned home after a 7 day stay at the Raj Palace. I was there for the Cricket World Cup and had a very nice stay in this hotel.
I booked a single room and got a double at no extra cost, it was clean and bug free. The air con was good and bathroom was clean.
The staff were very good, very helpful and always pleasant. There is a nice rooftop restaurant and the quality of the food could not be faulted and the service good.
There is a basement bar that is used by local people, it is very comfortable and clean.
The location of the hotel is good, just far enough away from the manic city centre to be quiet, yet only a 5 min rickshaw ride away.
All in all, for a 3* hotel I was very pleased. would definately stay there again.

We booked this hotel on advise of a friend in Chennai as being a reasonble hotel.

Generally the the room is filled with cockroaches with an unpleasant smell. The toilet had problem with flush and upon request was advised that all rooms had this problem.
The reception staff ( Kartik & Jiva) do not posess good customer service and are rude when they approach customer.
A good location for shopping.

This was the second time in Chennai for us and this was a nice place to stay. Room was clean and service was ok. We got a discount but only after asking about it, the staff did not voluntarily mention it which we were a bit annoyed by. Food was quite good value for money and nearby there are a lot of affordable places to eat.

If you will mostly be outside the whole day and eat outside as well, then this is good value, just don't expect too much.

This hotel is clearly popular, and is difficult to get a booking at, but worth it for the money. Rooms are resonable size, and available as either twin or double. Staff are helpful, and respond to specific requests. Rooms are clean. Remember, there are no irons available, and the laundry service requires items all day to launder or iron.

The hotel and rooms were very clean. I really had a good sleep after a long journey from delhi to chennai. The restaurant was classy and the food was nice. The staff were courteous as well. In all, i enjoyed my stay as the service provided was excellent. The interior of the hotel is visually appealing and makes you feel at home. Moreover, the hotel is situated near T.Nagar so shopping was easy.
