This was a great hotel with good upkeep and well maintained. The best advantage of this place is the accessibility to the major business destinations in North Chennai. It is a very short walk from Egmore station from where you can catch the local trains or buses to travel across the city

A very clean and tidy hotel with a nice restauarnt and concierge service. Room was spacious and clean and I had a room that overlooked the station with a lovely church in view. Above all, this hotel is exceptionally well located being close to the main trunk road in downtown and close to all points in the City.

This is not a 4 stars hotel for sure!! I only recommend it if you willing to pay charge for four-star hotel but receive service as local hotel. I stayed at Fortel for one day and it was an unpleasant experience. The bathrooms were durty, I found a very unfriendly staff,Food was terrible.

Stay was nice, rooms were clean. Only thing which cause lot of problems is the internet connection provided by the hotel. Speed was horribly slow. I could not even check my emails. Food was good and Staff was very co-operative.
