A very good guest house


Guesthouse is located in the busy PH road in a very good environment inside the YWCA, Very near to central and Egmore railway station. The rooms were modified and refurnished this time compared to the earlier visit. The family room is excellent, though remaining rooms are compact. The management may consider the option for providing reservation for this family room. Also they serve complimentary breakfast, which was very tasty, the staff members and the manager services are admirable.

Excellent hospitality at hotel


I visited the hotel to stay during the month of November for a business trip with my wife. The destination was good to travel. The hotel location was close to railway station and centrally located. The appearance of the hotel was well maintained. Reception staff's was very polite and co-operative. Housekeeping services was attended without any delay. The food services were not taken by us. Room was very spacious, well maintained and very clean with all amenities including WiFi. Travel desk services were also available. The hotel was budget family. The overall experience staying in that hotel was excellent.

A great choice if you want a clean & safe place


A very clean and safe hostel in a nice compound with lots of greenery and birds. The flock of geese was a very nice touch if you don't mind their honking in the morning! The food was decent but nothing more can be said about it and the choice was quite limited, so you might consider eating out once in a while While the place might have a monastic touch to it, it's nothing overbearing even if you're not the religious type. You might hear some singing from the chapel or see a religious painting on a wall, but that's all. On the other hand outside visitors are not allowed beyond the lounge area, so that's something you might want to consider It's certainly not a fun or romantic place to be, but it makes for a very nice stay if you just want a clean, safe and somewhat out of the ordinary stay in Chennai, so I highly recommend it.

Obliging staff but no restaurant facility


I went there with my family. The hotel was situated in the city. The interior and exterior appearance of the hotel was not that good. The staff at the hotel were specialized and obliging. The room was spacious and well maintained. I faced delay during check-in and check-out. There was no restaurant at that hotel. The money spent on the hotel was valuable. I recommend this hotel to other travellers.
