Nina from United States

Noisy and stains on sheets ”
I book this hotel because of the location is close to our relative's home and I regret it after I enter the hotel. Room was tidy but the sheet and bath towel have multiple stains on them. We kept our door and window close but can still clearly hear the hallway service phone ringing and people's conversation in the lobby. The only quiet time for us to sleep was from 2am to 5am. I was supposed to stay for 6 nights but had to check out after a sleepless night. I end up paying 3 nights per their early cancellation policy.

Very Disappointing”
I have been to Chennai four times now and I don't have unreasonable expectations of budget - mid accommodation. The door staff are lovely but it is downhill from there. The reception staff were ok. Any other dealings we had - on the phone to room service, cleaners, laundry etc - we had to make the calls several times - most often the staff would not understand and hang up on us. There was no wi-fi. The bedsheets were not clean. Most annoyingly, there was a tremendously loud telephone ringing in the hall on our level. It rang every couple of minutes and it was hardly ever answered. In the end I snuck out and unplugged it as I had complained about it several times to no avail. It would have been impossible to sleep if I hadn't. I contacted Agoda and shortened our booking - they were great btw. I would recommend staying in one of the established mid- hotels such as Palmgrove or New Woodlands over this one. We also stayed at these two hotels on this trip and they were both (quirky but) excellent! If you want to be near Kapeleeshwarar, stay at Karpagam. There is something seriously wrong at the management level here.

Mahendran from Singapore
Solo traveler
Executive Room
Stayed 2 nights in April 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.
