Mahendran S. Solo travelers Singapore, April 21, 2016
Room not available when checking in
I booked this hotel and paid full at Agoda website a few days before I departed to Chennai. I reached the Hotel at night close to 12am and the staff informed that he did not receive the booking at all and there was no room available at that time. We were unable to check in and we had to go around Chennai in the wee hours to look for another hotel. We had to stay at a much lower graded hotel that night. Regretted booking this hotel.

Clean hotel but very disappointed with amenities

Clean room
Disappointing experience. the first two days we were there, our hotel room had no wifi very few English channels on tv, and the lift didn't work!! No explanation as to this other than the fact that there had been rains. Surely this is not the first time this is happened. Why was there no backup to deal with such problems? The final whole day and next morning we were there, we managed to connect to wifi with a lot of difficulty and only with the hotel staff's assistance (30 mins time taken) and there was NO hot water.
