I stayed in this HOTEL.from 11th to 15th FEB.
Although the room rate per night is little above the average low price.
food is expensive for IN-ROOM Dinning, A one plate of Spaghetti, Pasta or a simple food like a sandwich is almost equal to the price you pay for the Dinner Buffet or Lunch Buffet( Incl Taxes).
Dinner Buffet is INR.700( Incl Taxes), A Spaghetti Carbonara is INR.520 Inc.Taxes. So you see whats wrong with this hotel. A bottle of 1Ltr mineral water is INR.120( Incl Taxes)-this product is not Premium quality water like Perier, its just the Average stuff the same kinda bottle water is available in the food court for INR.24 - 1Ltr/ bottle.
And NO BIRIYANI, NO FRIED RICE, NO FRIED NOODLES, The In-Room Dinning Menu gives you a very limited choice of foods, in other words IF your stay is longer and IF you have to buy at least TWO MEALS a day, this limited Choice for In-Room dinning leaves you with No-Choice, than either to eat from the Buffet, or pay an Unreasonable amount of money for a meal which you are probably having it for the Second time.
In other words, this hotel is concerned about Maximum profit and it is very unreasonable.
Rooms are fully sealed type, NO Fresh Air, you cannot open any windows or the fresh air intake is ZERO. So, when you wake up every morning you feel like you are already exhausted.
Although the Room is very clean, Bathroom/toilet is clean, Toilet Ventilation is ZERO, "Bathroom/Toilet odors just don't go away when you use it"
Bath/Shower unit is a "Skin Stripper" it is designed and Maintained to Rip-off your hair and your skin, Water pressure is too much, and the tiny holes in the shower unit is just blowing your head off!. Shower cubicle/ partition is too small you cannot even half stretch your hands( I'm just 5Ft+).
And the worst thing is, you have to keep on adjusting the tap to maintain Hot/cold water mixture, either the temperature keeps getting hot, or it gets colder by seconds.
Wifi - Although WiFi is free, you cannot use your MS.OUTLOOK with global settings. you need to get it configured from the Hotel, which I didn't let them do it. Because, your outlook emails will go through the hotel's server and to the web/ mail.- Why you wanna do that??
And IF you are using two devices on WiFi, like your Laptop and your Phone at the same time, ( One gets disconnected from WiFi), So, you never know which one is Disconnected.
Hotel Lift/Elevator - Although it's new and fast, It doesn't sound right. it sounds crrrr... trrr and sometimes you have to think whether the bottom is going to crack and you go down with it all the way to ground.
Location - This hotel, is located inside a IT park, like a free trade zone. IF you wanna get a cab/taxi, you will have to use what the hotel is offering you at their price rate, which is almost 50% more expensive and not good value for money. And Distance from Chennai Airport is Actually more than 14Km.
So, IF you wanna spend more and get less.... go to this Hotel. choice is yours.
