“Noisy - but very good in all other aspects”
Reviewed 5 September 2012

I had stayed in this hotel in Chennai in August 2012 - when I had gone with my wife - to attend a friend's wedding.

I will explain the only disadvantage in this hotel first - so that you can make an informed choice.

The room is not sound proof. And, there is a huge mosque just opposite to the hotel. Adding to it, the hotel is located in one of the busiest main roads in the center of Chennai. You will be exposed to vehicle noises till 11pm in the night and a morning prayer call from the mosque is sure to wake you up.

Discounting this one fact, the hotel is quite good. The location is spot on. Right in the center of Chennai - very close to the shopping district, beach, US consulate, fine restaurants, entertainment and what not. You ask, and you will get.

The front desk staff are very helpful, smiling and attentive. I had gotten my clothes ironed from the housekeeping staff, and got help in parking my vehicle. The room service is good in bringing food to the rooms - overall a good job.

The rooms and the bathroom are clean. The AC works quite well. The bed had no stains, and was cleaned thoroughly. There was soap, sewing kit, shaving kit, toothbrush kit, and comb in the room - as expected from a business hotel. There was an extra pillow too in the wardrobe. The pillows could have been a little more harder.

There is Sangeetha veg restaurant just on the ground floor - and it serves excellent South Indian vegetarian fare. There is an Arabian restaurant two doors from the hotel - which is run by the hotel owners themselves. It serves decent non-vegetarian food. Menu cards of both these restaurants are available in the room - for ordering food through room service.

There is parking space in the hotel - it is limited. But the security does a good job in maintaining it - so that you will always find a slot to park.

Check out is 24 hours. Overall, if you would not be bothered by the noise from outside - it is suitable for a quick trio to Chennai.

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.
