The hotel is well located and is just a few minutes away from Egmore railway station. It is also located at a place where various types of shops, stores, etc are aplenty. The hotel is quite large, spacious and has ample choice of rooms.
Problem is it hugely lacks proper maintenance. We stayed in standard non-a.c. rooms in the extreme right of the hotel, on the 3rd floor. Rooms were untidy and the less said about the toilets the better. On the 2nd day of our stay, there was a power outage. After around 15 minutes, I inquired why the generator is not operating. I was provided with an amazing reply - the part of the hotel we were staying in were out of the generator's coverage! After around 10 minutes, power came back though.
The floor had a service desk where I made a request to change the linen of our rooms. The request was never kept.

I stayed at this hotel from 23rd to 28th December 2011, and paid thru online fully, 1st day had water cut and waited without water for 4-5 hours, the owner wanted to shift another room on the 1st floor, that room was terrible, and wanted extra money, i declined and stayed found bed bugs scrolling on the bed had to run to the grocery to get mortien spray and do the job daily by my self, water cut was a daily occurance couldnt have decent bath after doing some shopping, last day the big bully lost my printout and charged me ind 850 for another day, the printout was miplaced for their convenience the rate i paid initally was rs. 667/- I do not advise or even think about this hotel to anyone do not even list this damn place for others get caught. thanks Mushtaq Ahamed - Colombo Sri Lanka

This hotel is quieter and in slightly better condition that some on the main street. That said the service was poor and the rooms basic. The linens were dirty (which seemed to be the case in most places) and we were bitten by bed bugs. We stayed only 1 night and when checking out the manager tried to charge us the A/C room price, even though we had asked for fan. After much debate he accepted the normal price of 1110 Rupees. It was a better option than the Pandian but still not worth the money. Fans in the room were good quality.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms near to the stairs as the front desk phones ring all night long.
