The Hotel Location is So Hectic

A disaster - awful hotel!

Awful. The place was very disappointing and I wanted to check out after just a few hours! The internet descriptions and photos are misleading and the place was really sub-standard for a supposed 'business' hotel. No fridge or coffee -making facilities in room along with generally sub-standard facilities makes this a place to avoid.

Overall, did not feel the need to commit suicide.

there were charges for the extra person that didnt make sense.I was told it was a one off payment instead of a daily. When confronted at they showed their brochure which was not shown to me earlier.
No apologies. Not much of food variety. Water pressure not great inclusive of hot water.

Ruined by total lack of hospitality service

location and clean room and good tv
Our one night stop-over was completely ruined by the horrible, thiefing customer service we received here. We are backpacking, and for our one night passing through chennai we thought we'd treat ourselves to somewhere reasonably nice, as accomm options close to the train station seemed a bit dire! Unfortunately I did make a slight error when booking and accidentally chose a room with a maximum occupancy of one. When we arrived we were told we had to pay an extra for an extra person (on top of the rate, which was already a treat for us, this represents a not insignificant amount of money). I tried to point out my obvious error and that the room for double occupancy that I obviously wanted to choose was, in fact, the same price anyway, but there was just no reasoning at all. At all. All I got was system-this, system-that. This is not good enough for a chain of professional-oriented hotels. I think the service was quite frankly shocking and I would never recommend anyone to stay here, lest you too get confronted with some additional charge because of an inflexible, un-customer friendly system!!

Not worth for money.

Close to train station.
Located at the centre of Chennai transportation, thus such a busy location and not really clean and tidy. The most importance the location shown on Agoda is wrong. The hotel is just next to Chennai Train Station, not located in the park.

Not impressed! Cockaroaches & sketch Taxi arrageme

Not super expensive, air con, cable TV, nice lady at reception
i was not impressed by my stay at the emarald. i saw some of the biggest cockaroaches i have ever seen roaming around there. they also come by burning something that lets off loads of bad smelling smoke that is harmful for the lungs - i got sick! the breakfast was not great, the place was not super but moreover i found the transportation arragements super sketchey. to get a taxi to the airport i was quoted 740 ruppees. they would call a radio taxi service and voila. however, they would get a cut of the price, a rather large percentage ...50%!!! we got the number of a taxi, the kind you have to call to pick you up, and it charges by the meter and our trip turned out to be half the price 357 ruppees.
Travel tip: I suggest you call a taxi, any taxi company and have them take you to the airport instead of paying double.
