          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.
