I booked this hotel based upon reviews other than Trip Advisor for the reasonable price. I found several issues on the "down-side"; wi-fi, as advertised, did not exist while I was there. There was one computer I was able to use off of the tiny lobby area. No common area, no place to sit except for room. You really had to walk a bit to find any restaurants, and there is no restaurant in the hotel. There is a take out menu, but not sure where the food comes from. The room was minimally acceptable, not extremely clean, but not dirty, typical of slightly "shabby" economy hotels.
Front desk staff friendly and helpful, but the guys who clean, except for one, were on the surly side, refusing to acknowledge greetings.
Off of very busy Anna Salai, but fairly quiet. Near Spencer Plaza and 10 minutes walk from an even nice mall, Avenue?More
