Krishna S. Solo travelers India, April 6, 2014

just located right across the chennai central railway station
The hotel will well located right across the Chennai central railway station great location for travelers changing trains or wait time at Chennai before they catch a connecting train. and that's where the good part ends. The is a perpetual foul smell in the hotel, stink. badly maintained rooms , stinking corridors. Not worth the money one pays for.. I know this as I have stayed in hotels with similar budgets in other places that were well maintained and totally worth the buck. I would not recommend this hotel except for the location where people dosent mind a really short stay for overnight to get some rest and not miss their train at chennai central railway station.

rooms fine

near station
Very good location being so close to the station but be prepared for sad scenes in the underpass when crossing from the station. Room was very good but the lift crawling up the side of the building was a bit flimsy looking. Desk staff on checking in not very friendly perhaps not used to foreigners.

Good no frills hotel

Well located, clean.
I stayed two nights - well run hotel, no other non Indian guests while I was there. Good clean room, everything worked, well located. None of the staff were very proficient in English however not a major problem. Passable breakfast (Indian only) in attached restaurant. Appeared good value, I would stay there again.

may be 3 star hotel

good location , frienly staffs
good location. average breakfast. same indian food daily. can't see anything through the window.An old building just adjacent to the window. There are many nice rooms with good view. but if you book through Agoda, they are giving you the worst room.
Hotel Feature Tip: Ask for a good room with outside view. Even you book for a Deluxe room they only give you a below standard room.

Only location is convenient!...

restaurant is OK, but everything else is lousy!
Horrible hotel with all rooms on one side looking onto a dilapidated grey wall that induces suicidal ideas instantly, let alone overnight!!! Nicer rooms on western side looking at the yellow mosque. Very badly maintained and cleaned, decaying bathroom and bugs; Tea jug came with live cockroach in screw thread!... I've been bitten by a tiny spider in my bed and it took more than a week to get better. Had to supplicate them to leave one piece of luggage there for 48H !!! All employees are extremely sweet and helpless but front desk is totally obnoxious. No WIFI!!! What else?...
Travel tip: To be avoided as long as it is not totally refurbished and managed by other people!!!
