No special ”
Nice reception. Facilities was good. But would be more clear in bathroom. Bathroom's door should be maintain it, can't close(i am unlucky to get this room). Restaurants Breakfast is good ,A lot of choose and with good service.
Room facilities are poor. Toilets not clean. Toilet water had foul smell”
On the whole I had a bad experience staying here. Its way too expensive for a small room. No place for a extra bed. I would never stay here again. But the food was nice.
Unhappy experience ”
1. Receptionist inform room unavailable for the rate what i booked online price and paid. Asked me to cancel . ———excuse me? Why i can booking and paid if not available by that rate. Is it my fault? 2. Check out day, Get a early morning (8:30am around )call for asked when i check out or extend . ———what’s wrong with them? I am still in dream. And what’s the matter with that question? Is it worried about that i get no money for extended or i deleted to check out? . Pls checking the time before make the phone call. 3. The elevator super terrible, pls fix the function in first, no matter how it look . ...
One of the worst hotel and staff management!!!”
It was a horrible experience. The staff members had no courtesy including the executive reservationists when an amendment was needed on the booking voucher.They force themselves to speak in butler English even though I was ready to talk to them in native language to ease the communication. Their English proficiency was awful. The room was smelly and bathroom was very dirty. The bath tub was in horrible condition when I entered the room. The bath towels provided must have been purchased when they inaugurated the hotel many years ago. They were supposed to white towels , but turned out to be grey towels.
meets the need”
A very good experience beyond expectation as I was considering it a sort of night pass budget hotel. Only thing is that I was wondering why management/ owners take some good Artitech or interior desisnor profession advice to change a little bit exterior and interior with a very little money. Color scheme chosen depict very poor taste. Its structure can well be kept as such but with a little imagination , it can really look like a heritage hotel. Hope some one from management would read and acknowledge .
5- star hotel at 3 -star price”
This hotel is a delight. Coming in from busy, noisy Chennai city, it is a welcome refuge of calm and order. Very high quality with one exception- the laundry service was poor. Would highly recommend this hotel.
Good services / good value”
Nice place. Stately lobby with good door service. Nicely decorated clean room with good air and comfortable bed. I did see two roaches during my 48 hour stay, but they were looking pretty sedate and I doubt they survived the night. (I would recommend a bait rather than poison to get rid of that problem for good.) A massage at the spa was a nice treat, and I would stay here again.
Good hotel with nice location”
everything about this hotel was very acceptable for me during my stay! very courteous staff and pleasant ambience was is an added bonus. my stay was short but nothing big to complain about. there were two things that frustrated me during the stay. 1. the receptionist did not understand that when a room is booked for 2 adults it means that there will be 2 people staying in the room and also 2 people for the complimentary breakfast. though they did not ask me to pay for the 2nd person, they seemed very confused about it because one of the receptionists was expecting the names of all the people who will stay on the receipt!! took him about a day and half to get clear on this…but not sure if he actually understood it 2. the internet, as mentioned in the website is not available in the room. it’s available only in the one computer present in the ground floor restaurant. it will be kind of embarrassing to sit in a restaurant for browsing while others are having dinner. other than this, i would say it's a nice place..good value for money..breakfast was okay! good variety was available..taste was acceptable but could be better for their standards!! they have a gym as well..i could not comment on it as i did not use it. pretty close to the airport and flexible checkin/out is an added convenience!!
Good hotel for short stays”
The room was perfect and the food was good. Will recommend for short stays and business visits. Only con was that the hotel reception didn't know how to handle the Agoda Voucher. Was a little irritating as it took a long time to sort it out.
Best Western Ambica Empire Hotel, Chennai, India”
Best Western Ambica Empire Hotel Chennai is lovely place to stay upon reaching India after a long flight. Comfortable rooms, nice friendly staff, local decor, and the best breakfast buffet i have had in India to date. Easy access to all points, whether it be by bus station, cab, train or what have you. Would return to Best Western Ambica Empire Hotel Chennai anytime.
