Its an excellent property located right in the prime location of Chennai, but looks like the management is not interested in maintaining it. AC does not work properly, paint on the walls peeling off. Rooms smell a lot. But breakfast was very good.

After seeing four stars attached to the hotel name I booked a room, pathetic smell , poor hygiene, stained bedsheets, I was disgusted and requested a refund, I was assigned a superior room which was no better. Extremely UN-recommended.

We checked into this hotel for a night's stay in February. Trust me, it is one of the worst hotels I have ever stayed. The room was so dirty with old dusty carpets. The curtains were torn.

The Hotel is a Shame in the Name of a Hotel. The Rooms & Upholstery are Shabby and dilapidated. I had to literally beg them for the Aircon Remote control. Even the Bsaic toiletries were not there in the Wash room. The linen in the room seemed and looked slept in.
