I booked the best room possible the 'Green room' for 3500 Rs for one day. The room was definitely not worth it. A very small TV, holes in the bed sheets, bad plumbing in the bathroom, worn furniture, wifi doesn't work in the room only in the reception,no parking. They don't have a restaurant, the food you can order from...

Where do I start. Stayed here for one night unfortunately. A friend booked it as I had to go to the embassy as my passport had been stolen. It was the worst hotel I have ever stayed at. I didn't feel safe no proper locks on the door, just a bolt. Dark and dingy the fridge was filthy the bathroom...

First of all, these guys DO NOT honor online bookings. i booked the room online and paid for the room in advance, and when i finally reached the hotel, the manager refused to provide me with a room. According to him, the rate listed online had changed and they did not have any rooms available. I spent about two hours...

I stayed in the standard room, definitely not worth for the price that we pay, The entrance itself looked dingy, a very narrow lobby, My room's AC had loose connection, TV wasnt working properly either. Although they served good breakfast. Staffs were good but seriously the room wasnt up to the expectation !

Having had my passport and money stolen I was required to return to Chennai to apply for an exit visa from India. The duty manager Prakash proved to be most helpful in guiding me through the incredible bureaucracy that was required to complete this process. He went out of his way on several occasions to ease my many concerns during...

These guys are perfect for US visa interview. They are at a walking distance which nobody can offer. Executive rooms are the best if you are travelling with your spouse. Is definitely not up to the mark for expats. Hospitality is very good. 24 hour check out from the time you log in and no hassle late checkouts if they...

My rating is based on the price paid for the hotel. Based on other reviews, I realized that standard rooms may not be well maintained, so I booked Executive-AC room. I think I took the right decision. The room was clean, bathroom was good too. The room on entry had a sultry smell which disappeared after switching on the AC...

I was in this Hotel for one night. The look of the Hotel from outside is great. But the interior is not that great. I had taken a standard room and the interior were not appealing. The food however was beyond my expectation. They do not have a restaurant but do serve at your room. The food served was good....
