There's a nice finishing to the room. Train is heard when it passes. Found one cockroach in my room. Staff doesn't speak English very well. Walls are a bit dirty. WiFi reception is good, and the restaurant attached to the hotel is fair.

Just a few minutes from chennai central to the hotel isn't going to be as easy as it sounds! A lot of construction work is going in and around the station. Walking to the hotel from station through the busy poonnamali road is a arduous dangerous task. Take an auto instead. The hotel itself is a nice one. The facade...

Important thing is the hotel is very close to the Chennai central Rail Station and you can travel anywhere from there. Room quality was quite decent. You will get a very good quality of veg and non-veg breakfast there. Food quality of the restaurant was too good. Airport transport is available and the wifi speed was really very fast.

This was clean and comfy beds with a tv. The water did smell a bit funky though. It was a nice enough hotel for a budget price to crash for the night. It's very close to the train station too. You can walk there in 5 minutes.

The room as well as the bath room is very tiny. However, whatever facilities one needs as a transit passenger a bit more too are available. AC, TV, clean bed sheets & beds and hot water in bath room throughout the day are most welcome. The room service was fine.The location is top class diagonally opposite Rippon Building and hence...

Though our stay was brief at this hotel, we were highly impressed by the neatness, service. Behavior of hotel staffs were very courteous and they were very organised. The food delivered from their in-house restaurant were tasty and reasonable. I cant think of going anywhere else in Chennai but here be it a business trip or a quick leisure one.

Economic option in the vicinity of railway stations. It is near chennai central as well as egmore. On the main road if it's easy to reach to and has good facilities.

This place is close to the Chennai Central railway station, but getting there by walk is anything but tedious and in some instances outright dangerous. We choose to walk as this was recommended by the Hotel staff. As soon as you get out of the railway station you need to take an overbridge just in from of the Chennai Suburban...
