Located opposite to Egmore railway station, this hotel's suite rooms are the best and for reasonable price. Hospitality is good and room service is satisfactory. There is a bar inside the hotel for tipplers to grab a drink. We had booked rooms here for our outstation guests and they had a pleasant stay.

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

Many people had given a poor rating to this hotel and staffs behaviour. I just thought of taking a chance and stayed twice in this hotel. Be it the staff service or the rooms I felt comfortable staying here. May be the ambience and cleanliness outside this hotel is a concern(but who cares about it). The staffs at restaurant need...

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.
