i had stay this budget hotel for small stay of 1 night. the check in couter person is so much busy for nonsence work and do not bother for check in guest. definately we can not expect highly qualified person at the counter as the hotel is situated where lots of other hotels are also their and they feel the customer is arrived at their hotel due to willing of customer not by quality of hotel. they have charged me for AC room about 1800/- per night and sure that at the same price you will find better hotel very near to this hotel.next day moring in resturant for breakfast , everything is cold served to me - dosa,sambar . no toaster is working and i requested the resturant manager thrice but may be the person is deaf.

First time in Chennai, all I knew was to go to Kennet Lane to find a place to stay for the night. This looked ok to us, cos there seemed to be a lot of locals staying. The room was ok, bed wasn't really, price wasn't either, but A/C worked fine, location is great, and only for a night, so what the heck, we thought.

Agreed with the previous review, reception was not really friendly.

The best thing they have is the exceptionally cheap international call rate they provide in the internet room on ground floor.

If I ever go to Chennai again, I will choose another place to stay.

The best part of the Hotel is its location. Just opposite to Chennai Egmore Railway station is what youl'd want if you don't know much about Chennai or visiting there for the first time.

The place is good, but gone very old. It needs a revamp. The rooms and the room service is average. The biggest problem I found is the Front Desk. If you don't see a smiling and welcoming face in a hotel front-desk, you're loosing customers. Same is the problem here.

The restaurant is good and the food is good too. Travel Desk is a good help here.

Room Tip: Good place to stay for the first time.

During my business visit to Chennai in the month of December 2010 I stayed for two days at hotel Pandian which is situated just opposite chennai egmore railway station. That is why I called its location excellent. It is comparatively economical as compared to other hotels of same range. Its rooms are neat & clean & provided with split AC & LCD TV. It provides complimentary breakfast. It is best suited for the people who have to use Chennai Egmore railway station.

We had booked this hotel for ease of accessibility to meet our clients and was one of the good hotels located in road just opposite to Egmore Railway terminal.
The hotel is well maintained but you could smell it to be somewhat old building.
Has good restaurant and bar and the food price are reasonable.
Room service was very good. Rooms are neat and tidy so the beds and the western toilet. CTV is present.
But the reception area is not too big.
There is comfortable SIFY Iway browsing center over there for browsing needs.
Shopping area is nearby and has all amenities on the go.
The rooms are small but could be justified for its location which is nearly a hot spot.
There is also permit room/ Bar.
Food laundary service are available at door/i.e room pickup.
intercom is provided for easy access.
No windows to see outside and A/c is quiet cool and chill.
Water is provided daily, bed linen are changed daily and the room service is also great.
Everyone over there are friendly and guide you on all questions.
Quiet costly but location is like hotspot and so is the brand name of hotel.
