Reviewed 4 December 2015

I had to move in to this hotel due to the convenience of the location for reasons related to my line of work. It is just a few hundred meters from the Eggmore railway station and the city centre of Anna Salai is also a few kilometers from here.

This hotel has been taken over by a new management and there was some upgradation work going on during my stay though it did not disturb my since this happened between 9am to 6pm. The room size was surprisingly spacious with a god view. Bed-sheets and towels provided are also clean. The bathroom could do better since it has a few plumbing issues. Hot water was available throughout though in Chennai you don't need hot water due to the hot and humid climate. They have tea & coffee maker in the room as well but no mini refrigerator. The restaurant is on the ground level serving a limited breakfast of south-Indian dishes and eggs made to order. Surprising thing was when asked for fresh fruit juice, i was told that it was not part of the complimentary breakfast and it would be charged. Anyways, service is good, though the food needs some amount of work to improve. Recommendation is to stick to the South Indian dishes from the menu and not try the Chinese or Continental ones.

All staff members including the manager was extremely good as they are guest oriented and quite helpful.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms facing the front side or the ones facing the neigbhours yard as it has a lot of greene...

Spent a few days here recently, and was impressed with this hotel's efforts to modernise and improve its offering. My room was comfortable and quiet. A bit more attention to cleanliness in shower rooms would add to appeal. There's a good breakfast buffet, and particularly good 'dosa bar' that's recent;y opened. There's a bar in the basement serving drinks and good (free) snacks, and a small new restaurant in addition to the main breakfast room. Transport is particularly easy - the hotel is opposite Egmore station and there are loads of trains and buses on the hotel's doorstep. Probably unbeatable for the price. Bravo!

It is located adjacent to egmore station looks bit old but the interior has been refurbished i checked in early hours they were kind enoughto give us a roomfor refreshing then went to work they allocated a room after 12 p.mroom was small than expected but it had all amenities ok for a couple but not advisable for a family because adding an extra bed in this rooms is impossible food was good staff were well trained and helped me in locating places

I have stayed here before, things are deteriorating day by day, there were plenty of cockroaches in my bathroom, Bed had dirty linen on arrival.food not worth talking I had a severe tummy infection. Only comfort factor prices are OK, but that is not everything, there are other places where prices and neatness are maintained.If I have to go there again , they need to promise neat rooms and better quality.
