Even though there are a few new hotels and service apartments in chennai, i still prefer the old Madras Ashoka hotel for the rooms are clean and food is brilliant. and it's in the center of the city. the prices though could have been a little lesser. I would still go back to this hotel :)

I have been a guest since 10 years' + . Whenever I am in Chennai, I choose this place to stay for its comfortable and homely. Clean and spacious rooms with friendly staff. All though the hotel is old, it has its charm. The food in the restaurant is just amazing, very tasty and clean too.
