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.
