    Too much mosquitoes in the lobby waiting hall.

    Location and the lobby. Helpful receptionist and bellboy. But nothing more than this...

    Run down, worn and torn appearance. Neglected facilities. Disastrous fitness room was in ruins, broken ceiling and dust everywhere. Rooftop pool is full of unclean water - totally unfit for swimming. No WiFi, in contrast to what is advertised.

    One of the worst hotels I have stayed in. Nothing was clean inside the room, the bedsheets were old n stained. The toilets were unclean. Horrible room service. Even the menu cards had grease on them. I would not recommend this hotel to any traveler.

    Though the facilities were poor, the reception desk staff tried their best to help.

    1) Mosquitoes & cockroaches in the room. 2) house keeping totally neglected. 3) facilities on paper either absent or not working eg. electric kettle, electronic safe. 4) Unclean room & towels. No training given to the newly appointed house keeping staff. 5) Room service served lukewarm coffee in unleaded thermos. 6) Unclean glasses & cups in the room.

    eigenlijk niets. Het personeel was voor indiaase begrippen eigenlijk ook onder de maat.

    Zeer teleurstellend. Het was ronduit vies. De kamer had enorm smerig tapijt. De douchekop kon niet opgehangen worden. En het was zeer slordig afgebouwd. Ik had een kamer vlak bij de luchthaven nodig omdat ik een paar uur tussen twee vluchten moest overbruggen. Prijs was veel te hoog (4000 Rupies) Ik raad dit hotel sterk af.

    Nada de positivo a salientar, a não ser o comportamento de alguns - poucos - funcionários.

    Falta de profissionalismo, foi um dos piores hotéis onde jamais estive. É de fugir! Do not consider this hotel as a hypothesis for your stay in Chennai.

    la situation pres de l'aeroport est la seule raison de choisir cet hotel

    personnel très rustre , ne cherchant absolument pas à satisfaire le client , faisant des erreurs et déclarant par la suite :"ce n'est pas mon problème " ! Trés mauvais souvenir .

    Sans avoir aimé quelque chose de particulier, cet hôtel est juste et simplement un hôtel d'affaires situé à proximité de l'aéroport et de bon rapport qualité/prix

    Le manque de propreté dans la chambre
