Location : very good. Many transportation options. Many big shops and market within 5 minutes walking distance.
Building : Renovated
Rooms : Good space for a couple. Well furnished. Average bath but clean
Food : Quite good but don't expect 5 star quality. Also many restaurants nearby
Breakfast : Enough choices to satisfy most people
Service : Fast & good

Room Tip: Upper floors, towards the back instead of front. May not have good view but less noise from the road...

I have stayed here in a group as well as individually. The staff was very accomodating, patient and went out of the way to make our stay comfortable. The rooms were ok and comfortable and a great value for the price. The inroom wired free internet was giving us trouble but the staff changed our room and made us happy. The location is excellent in TNagar with walking distance to Usman Rd, Saravana Store, Pothy's etc. The breakfast was excellent with many new dishes everyday and the lunch/dinner at the restaurant in the hotel was good too at very reasonable prices. I will stay here again when I am in Chennai.

Room Tip: Check internet rates and call hotel directly. You may get a better room if you are willing to wait a...

I was told that this is 3 star category hotel and heart of the city.
My entire 8 days stay was ruined based on the above wrong statements.
During check-in, i was asked to fill the form. While filling, the staff asked me that how many years (!!) i was going to stay?
No drinking water offered in the room.
in these days, room was shifted w/o my concern.
Lot & loads of insects found in the room.
Very poor lighting.
Though the break-fast is complementary, food was horrible like their staff.

I and my family stayed more than a week in this hotel which we found enjoyable. The spice restaurant lived up to its name serving various delicious indian, and singapore delicacies. I particularly liked the fried chicken rice which is a singapore dish found in the hotel's restaurant menu. The waiters are prompt and fast in serving the food in the hotel restaurant.

In the rooms we had clean towels. The staff was slow in cleaning the loo but the laundry service was fast and efficient. All the staff had ready smiles on their faces.

The free morning breakfas buffet was best and won us over. The food was delicious, especially the tasty and aromatic coffee. Briyani for lunch was great too. Everybody was fast in serving in the hotel's restaurant.

We could sleep well in our room. We had to made do with the family room which accomodated the five of us. Only once we had to squeeze in a room where there were only three single beds and then we had two extra beds put in.

The hotel is located well in the city of chennai and near T. Nagar. We liked the food, service and location of the hotel. Last thing, only the air-con was a bit too cold for us to take. Overall, it was the best experience for a holiday trip.

This hotel returned value of money in city of Chennai. I reached late night and was wondering for quality of sleep in hotel, but really my experience was excellent. I just entered sleep, the moment, I lied on mattress.

Other things were also relatively good in this budget hotel.
