Very bad service.Charged us extra 1500 rupees,saying we checked in early.They set the check in time to 2 pm..purposely so they can charge people that extra money.When we were there ,there was quite a lot of guests who were facing the same problem.Some paid the extra money including us and others waited in the lounge for 3 hours until their check in time. Robbery in day light.

This is one of the best hotels in Egmore Area. Staff is very responsible towards guests. Child friendly hotel. Nice rooms and delicious food. Walkable distance to Egmore station and easy access to beach, central station and centre City. Very convenient location for business and personal travellers. We would visit again.

All information provided in the reception point by Praveena was good. However, Room service and basic necesity of drinking water in the room and proper maintenance of rest room was very poor. After several times calling and getting it is not service expected in 3 or 4 star level Hotels. Focus should be made to ensure that all basic necessities and equipments should be kept ready before Guests occupy the rooms. I believe proper Training to the Room service and related personnel is need of the hour. This is what I have found during the stay in yr Hotel. If any Training is required for this purpose, I am as Corporate and Hospitality Industry Coach do deliver the Training at a minimum affordable Cost.
