““Nice Hotel, Good Food & Service, Close to US embassy””
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2013

I had to go US consulate and I was searching for a hotel near by tried this hotel . Turned out to be a nice hotel . Nice location, nice rooms, good food and nice service, good experience overall , food in China Town. Arranging free drop facility to US embassy & OFC Office.

This place is good and charges more only due to its proximity to the embassy of the USA in Chennai. Its just a 5-7 minute walk away from the embassy. The Marina beach is close by.

Other that that this place charges a lot for the quality of services and food they provide. The complimentary breakfast.

The employees are polite and greet you well.

A good budget hotel in the centre of Chennai. Pleasant staff, good compact rooms.
Nice restaurants around. Could improve by providing some small benefits. Value for money.Would recommend to all my corporate friends.

Found this hotel ideal for US Consulate Visa appointment, the hotel staff was nice, friendly; except for exceptionally optimal bathroom, the amenities are very good. Served very good south Indian complementary breakfast (taste, variety and quantity).

I stayed here for 2 nights. The hotel is on Cathedral road which makes it ideal for visits to Swedish and US consulate. Staff where most helpful and helpful. Room was satisfactory in terms of comfort and cleanliness. Price for budget room was OK although I had stayed in better value hotels in India. The China Town restaurant which is in the same building serves great food in a very nice atmosphere.

I would recommend this as a good choice of budget hotel.

My wife and I stayed for three nights at this facility in May 2013. The front of this property is located in a lane and it is not quite visible from the main road. The rooms and the hall way look relatively clean and provide basic amenities including an attached shower, air conditioning in rooms and a mini fridge which is not provided in many other facilities in this price range. The hotel provides free complimentary Wi-fi. We found the staff very attentive, courteous and helpful. Although there are restaurants under the same management, they are relatively expensive and the food is of average quality. However, there are other vegetarian restaurants nearby. The view from the rooms are not great as they face the wall of the adjacent building. Also if you see one or two insects (ants and cockroaches) should not be surprised, as they are common in India.

Room Tip: Rooms in the new "Annex' are better than the ones in the older building, though at a higher...

Me & my four and a half year old daughter stayed at the Oriental Inn for the US Visa Interview. I opted the hotel because of its proximity to the US Consulate and the free drop service offered to the Consulate. Being a 3-star hotel it provides all the amenities at a cost effective price. Rooms were very clean, good, staff is very cordial and wi-fi, a/c was good. Had to compromise on food as had a child. As a whole stay was satisfactorily good. Good hotel to stay for 1-2 days.

Room Tip: Has two buildings, one old and other new. I stayed at old one, which was quite satisfactory
