This place is very safe for families, and decent staff. and the surrounding is busy till 10.pm, many shops are located nearby. Happening area. The only draw back the wash rooms should be renovated and maintained property. Hot water available only till 10am in the morning, but if requested staff will provide hot water separately.

Hotel is good but expensive, compared to the hotels around the area. I called the hotel whether they ll allow 2 persons in budget room(as Agoda says max one person). The staff on the phone told 2 persons can stay in budget room. I booked 2 budget rooms in Agoda for 4 adults. But when I reached hotel they told I have to pay 900 Rs extra. I accepted without any choice as am travelling with kid and elders. But during checkout I wanted to pay in card but the staff asked for cash and didn’t give me receipt, on enquiring he told u ll get my mail, but didn’t receive any, sensing something fishy about this payment I made

Reserved a Non AC room for 3 pax in Dec, 2016. Although Check in time was 12 noon, they didn't say anything of an early check in at 11 am. Spacious room. Even 4 to 5 pax can easily stay in their Non AC double room. Washrooms are well maintained except that all the items are antique. Good Room service at reasonable rates. Vegetarian hotel is available near Ground Floor having fairly good service and rate. This is just located in the southern side of Thoppakulam of Kapaleeswaran temple.

The rooms are old with no proper maintenance. The receptionist are rude. Their goal is only billing without concern for customers. They change the words as person in the reception changes. There is good veg restaurant(Sangeeta) nearby, but hotel's restaurant is ....... Not worth for the rupee u spend.

I was rather worried arriving in Chennai as the city was only recovering from a terrible monsoon..240 deaths, thousands left without homes...sewage and drinking water damaged. This 38 year old budget hotel is mainly used by Indian pilgrims very polite and happy to help an elderly woman travelling alone. I felt very safe. My room was on the first floor - no lift - had help with my luggage - the room was very big and basic - pink walls, freshly painted , a huge double bed with clean sheets. The bathroom was in a bad state...old and needed painting badly...but clean- Free wifi - no breakfast. Next door there was a vegetarian restaurant. I chose this hotel for the position - right in front of the famous Sri Kapaleeswarar Temple Tank. The road was crowded, lots of shops and stalls filled with fresh fruit and vegetables. This was the true India I loved. I booked this hotel through Cleartrip and was satisfied.

Stayed at this place for being close to Ramakrishna Math, Chennai where we attended a temple function. Do not expect great things but it is a simple convenient place with ample parking space. Location is very convenient for being at the heart of the city. Rooms are large with wide and long beds (very uncommon these days). Ideal for family with kids. Very good veg restaurants are available below and in the next building. Room service is also available. Guests staying here must visit both Ramakrishna Math and Kalpeswara Mahadev Temple. Try to attend RK Math evening Arati at 6:30 PM and it is worth the time well spent. I will put it as a value for money. There is no lift but the staircase is excellent with gentle slope, small steps and very wide. Opt for road facing room with balcony. The temple tank is in front and one can enjoy the view in rainy season.

Reciptionist intentions are only billing with false assurances. Rude behavior. If pre-booking confirm everything regarding stay before going. Good for bachelor when no other hotel is available. Toilets are shabby.
