Located pretty much in the middle of the hustle and bustle of Chennai, I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of this hotel for the price. Whilst it lacks some of the facilities of larger more upscale hotels, the rooms and general hotel areas were clean and most things worked well.

Harrisons is located right at the center of the city and the places like Marina Beach are quite near from here. Although the rooms are good the restaurants are not up to the mark.
