Only positive thing is near for all shopping places, and avg veg food. Definitely not worth for money... 3star charges with zero star service. Old rooms, less cleanly. Mosquitoes, blankets n beds r very poor... may b years old. Food is average. Staff will expect money even after changing bedsheets. Water bottle costs 48rs. We can't get Kinley or bislery.... More

Very old restaurant, but maintained well. Neat and clean. Good ambience. We took Idli sambar and Dosa. Both are very good. Good place for south Indian food. Main advantage is - huge parking facility, very near to central and egmore railway stations. Service also not bad.

Checked in this hotel in last week. Overall facilities are good. Well connected from the city area even the airport is just 20 kms away from this hotel. Service is good. Food is okay. Famous places like Marina beach, Cricket stadium and Madras university are very near to this hotel.

For the tariff, you could get a better more sophisticated and cleaner room. But the room is big, the hotel has its olden days' hotel charm, ppl are friendly. The food here is trademark, safe and non spicy -tasty too. Very hygienically prepared. But if you stay here more than two days, one does get bored of the bland food.... More

Good value for money, especially for the mid-range budget business traveler! the restaurant is excellent for their thali (platter) fixed menu south-Indian and north-Indian meals. They have a couple of neat lawns allowing for outdoor event!

The hotel is nestled between between the two railway stations of Egmore and Madras Central. It is an old property. They do not make hotels like this any more. A large property, sprawling lawns and entrance way. large rooms with high ceilings, spacious bathrooms- all speak of the bygone era. All though the hotel is old, it has retained its... More
