“Comfortable stay near Egmore”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

My stay with this hotel was very comfortable within my Budget. All Service provided was Super. Rooms are cleaned well regularly. Everything is working perfect. It is equipped with large no of rooms & two restaurants and it is available very near to egmore railway station.

Room Tip: Take rooms in 13th Floor. Nice to see the city.

Suppose to be a good hotel initially but not the response is too bad, loud music when some one waits at the lobby because of function in the basement hall. No hot water only warm water, price was too good as stay one day get another day free

Cooperate staff

Room Tip: For price wise good

The hotel is an ideal one for people who want to stay near the railway station (both Egmore and Central). Rooms are very good and so is room service. The restaurant staff need more training and knowledge about food availability. A good hotel to stay for business and vacation with family.

Have now returned to Fortel and this time with family. 24 hours checkout always helps-had checked in at 6 am with family. The rooms are quite the same as my last visit almost 2 years ago. Pleasant experience overall. Had dinner at The Wok, which only had us for dinner when we visited.

When I reached the hotel the restaurant was closed.My request for a light dinner was obliged and was served warm rice and rasam.Bless them.
Breakfast was serviceable.There were lots of south indian items.When in Madras,be a Madrasi.
I needed a few print outs.They did'nt charge me for that.
The TV was OK.However,there were only local channels on cable.
The lighting in the toilet needed some improvement.The washroom light seeps through when you have switched off the bed lights.Very strange.
Guests need to reconcile themselves to the sound of local trains whistling in to Egmore railway station.

You must ready to live with Mosquito, Very Old hotel, Out look was modified and name was changed to give new look, Poorly maintained & cleaned. Hundreds of mosquito in superior room, very noisy from near by railway station. If you are travelling from abroad, please do not stay here, you will regret as i do.

Room Tip: Stay some where else
