6/10 Good

I already wrote a review for this so maybe they didn’t approve it. Average hotel in a really good location. Staff “helped” me get a cab to another place and it cost 2x as much as it would have if I’d been able to find a cab service on my own. Not overly pleased with that scam.

6/10 Good

Central to Mylapore and close to Ramakrishna Math, Kabaleeshwarar temple, and Marina Beach. Ok for a few nights but overall condition of room was average. Hotel staff helpful but also “helped” me get a car to Thiruvannamalai when other plans didn’t work out... pretty sure they made a deal with the cab company and ripped me off for a few thousand rupees more than it should have been but I was out of options. If you are confident in your plans in Chennai and getting to or from other cities, it’s an average option that served to purpose.
