good hotel to stay
However the service of one staff was not satisfactory. I had negotiated the auto rickshaw rate to 100 and the staff spoke to the rickshaw driver and increased price to 150. .. sad the staff was deceiving.

Poor1.0 / 5
Run-Down! and not worth it.... anymore.
The location is excellent, but the newer hotels in this area offer much better at the same prices. The room is as if it's never been refurbished since it was first made, 10yrs ago. Broken.... tiles, cupboard corners, false-ceilings, bath tub, etc lead to a shabby outlook. At this price, it's purely an OK hotel. But for regular travellers, I'd say, try at your own risk, I did. Oh and btw, in 2 days, I saw 6 cockroaches in and around my room, from on the bed pillows to in the bath tub. The room provided very bad and basic in-bathroom accessories and a SINGLE towel during my stay. No hand towel, etc. Quality of service people is OK, but that's because they are old hands, they may not be professional, but did seem like they wanted to assist. Overall, for 2.5K, in chennai, you can find other places which are just basic clean and nice. This one simply boasts of size, but hasnt bothered to even try to keep up with the times.
