10/10 Exceptional

The services by Thiru and team were of high quality.Very near to Pondy Bazar and best place to stay for shopping. However the Wifi services are very poor and electric points in Room 202 near the bed not working. No handtowels provided despite asking. Will like to come again and again.

10/10 Exceptional

We Recommend this hotel to Everyone
Pros – The room and bathroom were in great condition and exceptionally clean. The décor was very pleasing. The room service and meals were excellent. The breakfast room was lovely and the selection of items varied and good. (Only, it is not always easy in India to let waiters know that Westerners often like coffee/tea served first and like to have several cups of coffee or tea in the morning. Indian coffee cups with saucers tend to be quite small.) Other guests seemed surprised to see a Westerner but are quick to respond to a smile or small talk. Cons Only con is the lobby is not a/c and the lobby staff is not very friendly or quick at getting you checked in. The porter moved faster than the front desk staff and was very attentive to guest needs. The Staff are probably uncomfortably hot. However, all other staff are very accommodating and helpful. Owner needs to cool his front desk area both for staff and guests. One of the Room Service PAID BILL appeared mysteriously as not paid at check out. We had the copy of paid bill so we were safe. BEWARE - General practice while staying in India - When you get Room Service, if you pay or charge it to the room, MAKE SURE YOU GET A RECEIPT COPY AND KEEP IT WITH YOU. If you pay tell them to sign PAID. Otherwise you might see unexplained items on the bill. GET A RECEIPT FOR EVERYTHING YOU PAY FOR – ROOM CHARGES, ETC. (Except tips, of course).

Nice place
The room was very nice, although, the bed was stiff as a board. That actually worked out well, I slept very well. The breakfast room is very small, but that gave me the opportunity to share conversation with a stranger. The breakfast buffet was limited, but really delicious and fresh, high quality items were served.
