Rooms are ok for 2 people stay. Breakfast was normal. Housekeeping you have to call and remind. Location of the place very good near to all the hospitals like Apollo, Dr Balaji 10 mins walking distance. Shopping areas are around T.Nagar, Pondy bazar express Avenue, Spencer plaza. If you are new in Chennai Uber and Ola cabs are excellent to save money on commuting rates getting ripped off by local auto Rickshaw.

its a good hotel located in a central location. The service/House Keeping is nice. I stayed there for 3 weeks. I used to have my breakfast, which was good. Suggestion - They can increase the number of items for breakfast and bring more variety.
