This is a perfect stay for one or two nights if you are in Chennai for American Visa or visit to places near the consulate. This hotel hosts a very good breakfast and a very friendly staff. It is just about 4 KMS or so from Railway Station and nearly 8 to 10 KM from the Airport. The best way to reah here is using the Bus from central station or from the Airport using the TNSTC bus service. Reservations are easy the best way is to make is to get a good discount from any travel sites and then make sure you call them the next day or after 24 hours to make sure that your reservation is confirmed.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 January 2012

Ok... on the plus side. I booked through hotels.com and got a good rate. I emailed the hotel to confirm the booking and they replied promptly and also gave me info on the pre-paid taxi at the airport.

Check in was smooth.

The staff is EXTREMELY helpful. One of them walked me across the street and waited for me to go through the process of buying a new SIM card. The staff really get a five star rating from me. They really did their best to help with all kinds of essential information.

My room was large. The bathroom had lots of hot water and good water pressure. The TV had a million channels. The AC worked almost too well.

The downside... unfortunately...this place is NOISY. I mean, not a bit noisy...but totally noisy. The bed was also extremely uncomfortable as were the pillows. There is a mosque right across the street so be prepared to wake up at 5:30am for call to prayer.

The restaurant underneath has excellent food and not a single person who speaks English. I had a nightmare of a time ordering even the simplest food. The food I ordered came quickly and it was cheap and tasted good, but.... ordering took SO much effort.

Overall... I hate to give the hotel a low rating but unless they take measures to soundproof it more... I just can't give it a higher rating. Also, the location is central, but there isn't too much to walk to in the immediate area. So plan on take a lot of autorickshaws or buses (the main street Anna Salai is just a few meters away)

Room Tip: Try to request a room far that does not face the street.
