The hotel is very near to the Airport. They have the facility of picking you and dropping you at the Chennai Airport. The service of the hotel is good. Food is also good. The rooms are neat and clean and bigger is size. Enjoyed my stay here on my way to Port Blair.

Neat, convenient, good service, good food. Very close to the Chennai airport, specifically the international terminal. They have a free pickup and drop from and to the airport. If you're looking for a convenient place to stay in between / before a flight, look no further.

Reading the reviews, we were a bit hesitant to stay at this place but we had no other option considering the advantages it had. To our surprise,...

We went to the bar in this hotel for a few drinks. Nice setting with comfortable seating. They have a pool table as well. Reasonably priced and not too noisy. Food is also OK. Service is also reasonable. Good hangout place.

It is a 10 minute drive from the airport and offer complimentary transfers. That is about the only reason one should opt for this hotel. Their elevator stunk of cigarette smoke, the ambiance is bad but rooms are spacious. Not a place I was comfortable with family.

Cannot rate as a three star Hotel. Toilet is terrible. Broken wash basin, stinky water closet . Just stayed overnight for a transit flight. Noisy air conditioner, no cooling at all even we set to 18 degrees through out the night. Shabby Bed sheets and Towels. Only advantage is just 5 minutes drive from the airport. Made us to wait...
