Despite reading all the negative reviews we went ahead and stayed there. Just for 1 reason - Menaka Restaurant. Apparently the restaurant has some what lost its charm.

Stayed here in this facility. This facility is more than 50 years old and caters to the needs of mid income and low income traveller with various levels of room rentals available. The food is good. The biggest advantage is that this facility is near the US embassy / visa facilitation centers(a walkable distance from this facility). Overall

Hi, I needed to go to Chennai for a one night stay and chose Palmgrove because it was within walking distance of where I needed to go. That plus the fact that I have stayed there before. Over the years, the hotel seems to have declined in its service and quality. The rooms need upgrading for the price charged. The...

Palmgrove Hotel, situated at a very central and convenient location boasts of a very comfortable and homelike stay. It has a unique tradition of walk in comfort without prior reservation.The rooms are, in fact suites, large and adequately furnished where comfort takes the front seat. Not luxurious but practical, it is like a home away from home.The beauty is that...
