“Just fine”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 January 2012

Newness: fairly new one about 2years since it was incepted, since then I have been checking in
Ambience: Spartan, clean, elegant, just fine
Lobby: very minimal
Rooms: Studio rooms are meant for one person or at best a couple
Amenities: they have improved since their initial inception in terms of providing the toiletries, upkeep, housekeeping

What is missing:
- Linen: they must change the linen with fresh bedsheets, towels regularly atleast after guests requests
- Air Conditioner: needs to be cleaned up with good aromatic spray for better ambience
- First Aid Kit: sorely missing out in case of even minor emergency
- Laundry: must improve by any standard
- Front Office Staff: must not use the lobby as if it is their home premises or their own private living room. They need to be professional, carry the uniform, use those programs on TV that are of interest to the guests
- Piped music: soft, soothing or enchanting carnatic vocal in the mornings
- Restaurant: pathetic food quality

Office Manager: doesnt seem to be bothered about any of these repeating customer feedback that is placed on the book : Mr.Amal Raj: its high tim that you would be instrumental in either its upkeep or singularly responsible for its sad demise if the same trend is followed in not listening to the formal feedback emanating from the consumers

Potential: it has great potential to be numero uno almost like that of The Lotus/other better equipped service apartments if only the management either proactively or atleast react to the above feedback in their own interest.

Tips: Its right at the corner of the main kodambakkam bridge and Periyar Salai of T nagar. Easily accessible to main Pondy bazar and T nagar

Price: Just fine. Can give discounts to the regular consumers

Systems: patehtic; they need to improve on having an online system that automatically tracks the past experiences of the consumers, new consumers, billing details if paid by online portals such as cleartrip.

Room Tip: Select an executive room instead of studio room for spaciousness Insist on fresh linen everyday no...

This hotel is not suitable for family stay. In true sense this is not a star hotel at all. This is just an apartment house renovated to look like hotel. Furtniture & fittings inside rooms are very good. Cleanliness is also very good. However, the main problems are:
1. Very small rooms, hardly any space for comfortable stay;
2. The whole house is very cramped and saffocating. There are not enough windows or contact with outside atmosphere. Even there is not enough space for comfortable sitting in the lobby for 4-5 people. Staying with kids will be very troublesome;
3. Staffs are not trained in hospitality. They were not expressing very welcoming attitude;
4. Complementary breakfast is bare minimum. Local people may be ok, but nothing for non-local travellers.
I would not recommend this hotel for family travel on holidays. Business travel alone for 1-2 days may be OK.
Also the address of the hotel is not updated in various travel agent websites. I had got the wrong addres and had very difficult time to find out the hotel.

We stayed 7 nights in an Executive room and though a bit small, the rooms were very well appointed with all the standard luxuries one would expect in a 3-4 star hotel.

We were attending a seminar in central Chennai so just used the hotel for sleeping. It is very well located and close to the city centre.

This hotel offers the BEST value for money you will get in Chennai as long as you are primarily looking for a place to sleep over at and will spend most of your time outside the hotel. Other than the rooms and a private restaurant for hotel guests only, there are no othere attractions in the hotel. Ideal for business travellers on a budget

Ther is no swimming pool

Room Tip: Take an Executive Room, other rooms are cramped

Stayed at this hotel twice just because I was getting a good deal through online portal.

The hotel is good, neat and clean. Located near TNagar.

However the staff is not that cooperative. Even though they have a 24hour checkin/checkout policy, as I had booked through online portal they said its 12noon checkin checkout.

They refused to adjust quoting "If you had booked direct then it would be 24 hours checkout".

Rooms are smallish but hotel is really good.

If you ignore the staff and weird rules, the hotel is really good. Nice clean and comfortable. They provide free WIFI and even coffee/tea maker with refills! (Other hotels should learn from this!)

VFM.

Will go back again ignoring other aspects.

Room Tip: Avoid ground floor rooms. Noisy and tata docomo signal is very low!
