“Absolutely fine for one night”
Reviewed 18 August 2011

This place is fine for one night, its nothing special but it's not bad either.

Any more than one night and you should look for somewhere a little bit more hospitable.

Expect a bed, a pillow and a few mosquitoes and the guy at reception to have not brushed his teeth since birth and you won't be let down.

Stayed August 2011, travelled with family

I came to this hotel after fleeing the Broadlands. While the hotel is definitely not luxury, it is a decent budget hotel. Rooms were of an average size and the sheets and bathroom were relatively clean. Front desk was relatively friendly and helpful. This is definitely a decent option in Chennai if you're on a budget.

Room Tip: Get an AC room-the heat in Chennai is insane.

Loved the hotel for its location. Very close to market and also quite close to the Beach. The rooms need some improvement. Also we expect the front office staff to be more courtious. But overall good stay. I recommend this hotel for people who want good stay for budget money

The rooms were not clean, the construction outside my window started early every morning. This is a backpackers stop and for individuals who are on a tight travel budget. They do have some rooms with a western style toilet. The TV in the room was small and very seldom gave a good quality picture. I was on a mission trip so I was not concerned about the quality of the room. I just wanted a place to sleep. A bed was all I needed. If you are travelling with family or for leisure this is not the place for you. There is a close internet cafe and a resturant across the street.
