“Want to feel hell. Visit this hotel”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

This is the worst hotel ever seen in my life. Reception guys wont even know how to behave with the customers. They don't even know to speak in English or in there own language tamil. I visited this hotel at around 4pm planning to stay for 2 days but reception guy's behavior made me to walk out from there and stayed at peace park inn which provided me a excellent service. If management is bothered about the hotel reputation throw that reception guy out (who will be there in the reception around 4pm).

That was the 2nd time I ended up in this place with my family. We opted for a buffet dinner over ala carte menu. There were few guys staying over some picnic and the hotel had arranged some low cost dinner. They never uttered a word on this plan and we ended up choosing that menu which was nearly in phase of getting empty.

Later we understood this and ordered items from menu card hoping the rest of time to move good. Sorry to say that nothing was tasty nor served with right temperature. It didn't burn our pocket much and hence we didn't react!!

Central Chennai hotel with good access to all parts of city. Rooms are clean, service decent and food is good. Only issue is with Wifi which works sporadically in my room so if you have your own internet access then this is a good hotel to be at.
