Met by efficient check in and paid for an upgrade to sea-facing room so we could enjoy the view of the sea without the noise and sight of any vehicles. Room was compact and simply furnished but the view was...

This hotel needs renovation. We stayed here for just one night and found absolutely nothing worth praising except the breakfast which was decent. The location of the hotel is nice as it is located right next to beach.

Excellent location right on the promenade. Clean hotel. Easy check-in. very good size, clean room / shower. The breakfast in the morning was overpriced (costs more than the 5* hotel in Chennai) and the South Indian options were edible but not worth the price. Much better eateries at a short walk from the hotel.

The Promenade is located in a wonderful location that turned our mode when first reached. The management of the hostel is very good. The hotel ambiance is one thing I must mention. The swimming was very well maintained and my girlfriend liked it very much. The rooms were very well decorated and pretty spacious. Overall it was an awesome stay.
