Not your every day chain hotel. It is between a full service high rise hotel and a B&B. What you give up in terms of “haute” service and amenities, you get back in a personal and very traditional Southern Indian hospitality – the owner is on the premises most of the time. The rooms are spacious and the staff always willing to assist. Rooms are grouped in separate buildings, each with its own common areas to spread out. As in old time Mardas, the dinner ends early, although there are many eateries within a few minutes by cab, and even one round the corner. The staff will call an ubiquituous ‘auto’ for you if you ask. Or they will cook up some custom food, if you give them enough notice. Breakfast is sumptuous but quite Indian. They even have a gym to burn the extra calories. This place may not be for you if you are looking for 5 Star hotels and are strictly Western in your diet. But if you are looking for a good place at a reasonable rate and warm service, I highly recommend this place.
Very good and quiet place to stay in bustling Chennai
