I usually come to chennai on short trips often. I make sure i stay near a railway station as my preferred travel is by trains. Egmore has many hotels. Victoria Hotel is strategically located very near the railway station. I have stayed at this hotel two or three times. The hotel is quite good and decent. Room service is also fast and quite good. Last time i stayed there, renovation work was going on. There was no life working because of this and so it was a bit tedious climbing stairs everytime but the staff seemed apologetic about it. The response at the reception is not that great, as they are a bit indifferent, it seemed. Usually room service is what i look for in hotels, as we visitors will need much assistance, for newspapers, water bottles, etc. The prices of food items and water bottles in the hotel were a bit on the higher side, i felt. Though they claim it is a 2 star hotel, i somehow did not get a feel of 2 star. Rooms were ok in size. As i was a single person did not have much problems. Restaurant was also not so great and neither the food. They were ok. Maybe improvements have been made now. It was at least some 3 months back when i went there. They told me that renovation would be over soon. On the whole, the stay was ok.
