this hotel is just opposite to chidambaram railways station. rooms are ok. it has an old charm. they have a bar & a restaurant too. this hotel has to really go for a complete renovation. amenities has to be changed.
Pros: Location - Just opposite to the railway station. Breakfast was good... but, mostly served cold Housekeeping staff was quite polite and helpful Cons Dirty Rooms Unclean and torn bed spreads and pillows Bathrooms were not clean No TV in the room No Geysers for hot water in the bathroom. So, we had to request the housekeeping staff for hot water. They were old men and we felt guilty requesting them for water or any services. No intercom in rooms. An old phone was thrown in the closet. Every time we needed something, we had to make a trip to the ground floor.
The rooms are tiny, the bathrooms look like they haven't been cleaned in ages, no hot water in rooms, the time have AC, but no remote, the list goes on and on. Worst part is that all the rooms have geysers but they cannot be switched on, and they provide hot water in a bucket. When I asked them why is there such a mess, they told me the hotel is under maintenance, but looking at the reviewed here, the hotel seems to be under perpetual maintenance.
The approach to the hotel is good and the 'man friday' Laxmi was great(seemed like he was the only staff in the hotel - from servicing the rooms to serving breakfast in the restaurant), although he did not understand what i had to say totally or me to what he said but things always clicked showing traits of a perfect hotelier, others can do better ;) Well overall rooms needs maintenance, else it was a 'ok' stay with a cute little bar inside the hotel.
If you are thinking to stay in this hotel, I advise you to add some more amount and stay in Hotel Saradharam. We stayed here for a night. This Hotel looks good from outside. We got disappointed once we entered the room. It was so small and bathroom was nasty. A/c was available but No remote available. they said Hotel in under maintenance. only one tube light was there. No night lamps. The worst part is No latch was there in Door. Only Door lock was there. When we asked they said we cant open from outside. But they also said there is Master Key for all room. Horrible part is Geyser was there. But it was not working. Hot water provided from some other room. Not suitable for families. Car Parking was available.
