Review of A - P
Food, location and design
The hotel is nice for stay. A centrally located well connected point in Chennai. I experienced poor quality water and very low temperature in room, possibly because my luck didn't favour. one may check all items before getting in...

Old Word Charm still remains
Central Location
Old world Hotel with courteous staff. Not the place if expecting modern hotel, but good to go back to an old world mid market hotel once in a way. Clean and free of odour.
