We checked in at 4 in the evening. Rooms were stinking as if no one has been there since ages. Washrooms were trying to be modern but they failed to maintain their status and taps were leaking. Room service was pathetic, no response after calling them several times. Not at all recommended.

I had booked the hotel for 2 night but decided to check out within 1 day even when the money was paid. Rooms smell. Curtains are torn. Bed linens not clean and even mosquitoes and AC is noisy.. One can even stay in a railway lodge but avoid this hotel

Travel only if you are looking for a cost effective hotel at a centralized location. The buffet breakfast is complimentary (depends on your package), even the food is very nice and the restaurant ambiance is average

Its an excellent property located right in the prime location of Chennai, but looks like the management is not interested in maintaining it. AC does not work properly, paint on the walls peeling off. Rooms smell a lot. But breakfast was very good.

After seeing four stars attached to the hotel name I booked a room, pathetic smell , poor hygiene, stained bedsheets, I was disgusted and requested a refund, I was assigned a superior room which was no better. Extremely UN-recommended.
