Just opposite to Egmore station, 24 hour checkout is the only advantage, complimentary wifi is good, lot of good restaurants nearby, attached restaurant not that good, linen not so clean, hot water is ok, no kettle in the room.

Better than I was expecting but very basic. Room was clean. No blankets (only a sheet covering the mattress), no towels, no toilet paper. Gave a bottle of water but it wasn't sealed. Only stayed for a few hours so I don't know how it is at night. Wifi was good but didn't reach the room. Plenty of restaurants around...

Don't ever book. I had gone there and was made to change my room which had a damaged telephone. The receptionist at night(Old male with greying hair) told me to not be stingy and spend Rs. 1 and use my mobile and advised that doing so won't make me poor. Thanks for the advice. Beds are not comfortable. Bathrooms are...

They told us every thirty minutes that the WiFi would be working. The beds are not super comfortable and the staff isn't friendly. They would not let us cancel our first night there. We will not ever come back but the hotel across the street is SIGNIFICANTLY nicer! Go there!!

Rooms provided are not worth the money paid. We can get better staying experience for the same price. Bathroom roof is leaking from the top, very poorly maintained rooms. Better stay away. Other than location no pros here.

The Hotel is Just opposite to the Egmore Railway station, very easy to locate and have good access to many places in the city. Rooms are neat and clean with ample space. Complimentary breakfast was average and the dining place had no ventilation, nor air conditioned so it was so stuffy and stinking.

Near to Egmore Rail station. Neat room and cupboards. complement breakfast. Tastes medium. Immediate service. 24 hrs check in/out. I like the scenerio around the back side of the room ( 3rd fr. 304) through a big glass window.
