A weeks stay
on Jan 30, 2019
This is a very nice place to be , not very expensive, nice rooms , some are suites with a hall and bedroom the other rooms are just a decent sized hotel room, very friendly staff and helpful , they cater to all your needs and are very prompt , several decent restaurants nearby and they deliver at your hotel room
Mainly the quality of rooms for the price is really amazing and if I ever come back I am definitely staying here
Single women travellers stay away
on Apr 24, 2018
I stayed here for less than 24 hours and was by myself. The stay itself was OK but I was peeved by the attitude of the person at the check-in desk. The moment I walked in, he asked me the purpose of my stay in a manner that indicated he was suspicious of me. I told him I had a long layover in Chennai. He did not know what "layover" meant, so kept asking for the "purpose". He kept asking while inspecting my ID, "Is it for an interview? What are you doing here?". I told him I had made a legitimate booking, paid for it, given him my ID for the hotel to make a copy of and keep, and signed the register for guests at the front desk and that if he did not understand why I had come to stay at the hotel, I could not help him. (And no, I did not have a "local ID" with a Chennai address.)
My guess is that his attitude and questions come from a regressive mentality of viewing single women travellers. One does not check-in to a Fabhotel expecting the moon and often the decision to stay there is guided by its location+price. Even by those standards this was an avoidable experience. Also, it's located in a dingy street that makes it difficult for cabs/ auto-rickshaws to find the hotel and to enter and leave the lane.
Very worst hotel and Not advisable for family/Women
on Apr 17, 2018
I ever had this bad experience in my 20 years of travel. The receptionist behave like a Goondas, Rooms are untidy, Air-condition was not working they did not bother after compliant also. They permit for drinkers and smokers and lot of noises, So totally unsafe for family and women.
Bad Approach, Decent Rooms
on Apr 2, 2018
Booked a room online for three nights from April-1, 2018. With the help of Google map could reach the place. One thing that one should be fore-warned is about its bad location on a very narrow street. Here, two vehicles coming head-on will stop both from any further movement.
However, the pros are decent rooms, parking space, clean toilet and friendly staff. But not very professional.
Food? Looks like one needs to check-in into this hotel only for night stays and till dinner time, you should have work outside. Worth the stay if one gets a deep discount and for non-business budget travel.
