I have been going to this place for 3 years. Over the 3 last years, service has deteriorated. Unfortunately, the bulding is not maintained as well as it should be. Management struggles to keep the service one may expect from such a place. The khotel is understaffed and the employees run and try their best to compensate the poor management....

From the time you enter the hotel, it is a bag of mixed emotions. One, when you enter the hotel, there is nobody to either pick you luggage nor, there is any sort of a security check, which personally feels scary. Two, the check in took way longer than expected. Systems are down was the claim though others reviews suggest...

The first feeler of the hotel when you enter is good. However it soon turns bad when you see the room. Clearly its an old property which has not been maintained. The room walls and the furniture looks old and required urgent repair. They have 2 restaurants and a pub/disc in the hotel. The "18 degrees North" restaurant serves good...

Hotel aiming mostly at business people... Good comfort and convenient facilities. Chennai being a very large town, it is difficult for tourists to find the exact right place where to stay. Food was good but choice limited especially if you are not so keen with SPICES!

The check-in is a nightmare, they have a huge queue and the order for getting your room assigned will depend on how loud you yell at reception.
