Kochi (Cochin), India1941 contributions568 helpful votes
The location is superb almost across Dr. MGR Chennai Central Railway Station with easy access to metro stations and bus stops. The staff are quite friendly. The room had clean sheets and a decent bathroom. However, that is about it all. The property is quite ill maintained. The walls in the rooms were feeling wet probably due to water seepage in to the concrete. It looks (but may not necessarily be) dusty almost everywhere and maintains a 'moth eaten look everywhere from the Reception onward. The buffet breakfast was sort of sketchy but passable. If the management makes a serious effort with regard to the upkeep of the building, it should be an attractive option for any one visiting Chennai while arriving by by train.

We checked in late beyond normal dining hours. The check in was smooth and the room was all right. The bathroom was small, without any hooks, racks or shelf to place clothes. It was good that the hotel could provide room service at a late hour. The food was barely above acceptable quality but the abnormal custom was that we had to pay in cash when the food was delivered it to our room. Each time we had to keep cash ready, like when we ordered a couple more rotis. No provision to sign and pay at the time of check out; or to even pay after the dinner was over. We found this practice very, very peculiar and not guest friendly at all. In the morning, we called the front desk to send the bell boy to take our luggage from the room. After waiting for a quarter of an hour, we did it ourselves. The only helpful soul was the security guard who promised to watch our car during the night, and also washed it in the morning. The hotel has all the basic brick and mortar infrastructure but definitely needs to pull up its service levels. A service oriented culture will go a long way in making guests feel comfortable and appreciated.

Located just about a couple of kilometres from Chennai Central railway station. The deluxe room was well maintained. Stayed for a night and left early in the morning. Hence did not have an opportunity of checking out the restaurant. The in-room food service was good.

This hotel is a nightmare. $150 USD was stolen from my room. The hotel manager was uncompliant and preferred I take my case up with the legal system instead of proposing a diplomatic solution. He was trembling the entire time we spoke, clearly lying about the security procedures and safety of the hotel. Apart from this, the rooms are shabby and unclean (don’t look under the bed if you stay here or walk around barefoot, you will regret it). The wifi barely works. Sometimes there is hot water, sometimes it is cold, and sometimes it is BLACK. Often it smells like sewage. The shower head pressure is virtually non existent. The waiters shorthand the change, always count what they return to you. If you don’t speak Taamil, you will not be understood by the staff. The water they serve at the breakfast buffet tastes like tap. I sent a bag of laundry to be cleaned and it came back dirty. There were cockroaches in the first floor bathroom, near the restaurant. ABSOLUTELY DISGUSTED with my stay here. Don’t waste your time or money.

Based on our Travel Agent's recommendation, we stayed here. It was a nightmare of an experience. The Hotel Facade & Foyer are totally run-down. The Room was not made & the Toilet Faucets were leaking. On our making an issue about this, we were upgraded. Here the Shower Drain was clogged!! However, the Staff were very polite & helpful. The main plus point for this Hotel is it's proximity to the Railway Station. A place to be definately avoided.

A good hotel located in the middle of the city. The staff was very friendly. The room was very clean and the service offered was excellent. The food was okay. It was complete South Indian food and we did not have much option in that, but it was filling.

A good hotel centrally located. Equidistant from Chennai Central & Chennai Egmore Railway Stations. City Bus Stop is right at the entrance gate of the hotel. A very convenient place to stay. The Hotel by itself is well maintained and service is very good. House keeping is also good. The stay was pleasant and memorable.
