very bad one
on May 19, 2017
Not at all maintained, all rooms are dirty, bed spreads with bad smell. washrooms worst. front office and reception are also dirty. worst food a health hazard. Stains every where. no wifi & no lift. british style, mogal style all are worst. .location and the present tariffs are the only consolations. Thought food was provided by Bhat's bhojan but not true.
Tolerable for the tariffs

The location was convenient and the service, cleanliness, food and other facilities tolerable for the tariffs. Obviously the hotel must have seen better days when it was built. Surprisingly there are no other options in Tambaram.
Think twice before booking

I stayed with my family during my visit to Chennai in Dec 2016. Worst rooms - unclean floors and bed spreads, no water in the bathroom and toilet, unclean table with stains of coffee or tea. Please think more than twice before booking. The photos from their website are not even relevant to the rooms been provided.
Hotel Henkala..the same old hotel..now in reduced tariffs..no frills..

Hotel Henkala is my favourite in West Tambaram Chennai for stay, not by choice but, so far by no choice of location close to bus station and train station..It has now become more affordable..with reduced tariff: excluding tax: A/C single 1000 and double 1200 with non a/c at 700 and 800 approx..advance booking must. No complimentary breakfast..no newspaper..no frills..hotel remains the same with no considerable improvement over 6- years..location and parking is the advantage..vegetarian restaurant attached

Position wise it is great close to train and bus stands.
Room service OK
One good veg restaurant attached
ROOMS: big, we stayed in 110 for 3 adults. The ac was bit undersized.
Nearby restaurants are few , but several common joints and shopping around. If you ask for more then go to Chromepet. Saravana stores 100/- auto fare..or 10/- in any bus.
Often full, so to get booking in advance is difficult.
In one word not a place for people of 3 star category, yes but for lower middle-class its the best option.
