I wrote this review and it disappeared so this one will be brief.Fair price(500 rupees)...good but not great cleanliness....comfy bed....not too noisy.....Amazing proximity to Egmore railway station. Best of all,when I requested a working TV they moved me to a much better room with a small balcony!!

Pretty shocking, considering their prices. Would pay maybe 500 INR for a double with AC, instead they charge about 2000 INR. It's hard to judge when you're booking online because the photos look great, but this many bad reviews should warn you! Room: beds are comfortable, but linen is stained. TV didn't work (told reception and 4 different people about... More
