For 620 rupees on Hostelbookers I didn't expect this place to be clean, and it wasn't. Parts of the hotel smell like someone was using the hallways as a toilet. The sink and shower would barely dribble a little cold water- I recall standing under the shower waiting and waiting to get wet. The wifi they advertise on their web site is an internet cafe 3 blocks away. They also claim cable tv, but I didn't see any. I have no idea what their 'hot water facility' is. But the icing on the cake was the drunk-as-a-skunk manager trying to tell me that 700 rupees minus HB's' 10% equalled 556 rupees, and charging me the full 700 for a late checkout.
If you have the misfortune to find yourself in Chennai, and you're really desperate, Zama might suffice. But I'd look elsewhere. Check the photos.
