Reviewed January 6, 2009

We stayed here over the Christmas period. Slightly on the expensive side for Chennai but when we checked out some lower priced options, we were happy with what we got.

The rooms were clean and well equipped. The only negative was that they were smaller than the norm in India.

The room service was very good. Also the laundry service was good. Service cannot be faulted. Breakfast was included and was ok. Far better options in the neighborhood such as Murugan Idli Kadai and Saravana Bhavan.

Very good location. Close to Pondy bazaar and Panagal Park (5 mins by auto at approx Rs 40). Excellent shopping and restaurants at both places.

Chennai has some glorious shopping destinations (some jewellery/saree stores would rival 5 class hotels) but the availability and cleanliness of toilet facilities are woefully lacking. So it was nice to have our hotel nearby for a midday rest break.

Do not use the hotel’s own vehicle. Their charges are double those of the call taxis.

Most taxi/auto drivers don't know this place. You need to say its on Thirumalai Pillai road close to Valluvar Kottam. You will still get taken to another new hotel (think its GRT towers or something)... just say "not this one... keep going, its on the left before the signal light".



Overall, good hotel for location, cleanliness and service.
