OYO ROOMS RECOMMENDED HOTEL. Loads of communication done regarding my visit after full payment to oyo room booking. The worst ever experience had in my entire life. As promised no booking was confirmed on my name by oyo rooms after full payment. No restaurant No bar No buffet break fast, poor room condition and space. No proper exhaust. No good service. For all room service payment to be given first to buy from outside. No room service as the restaurants closes in the street. Never ever opt for oyo rooms
Felt cheated. Avoid if possible
on Nov 27, 2015
Location wise not bad but depends on the kind of traveller. We wanted a peaceful hygienic place to stay with a baby. Our entry commenced with a broken lock the handle of which came out with the tape immediately. Till night 2:30 a truck went on grumbling across the window and small cockroaches running around and mosquitoes humming their obnoxious tune as if it was a abandoned kitchen. I still couldn't understand the presence of the wash basin inside the room and turned the place more unhygienic. The bathroom was too small and dripping taps made it worse. We had already booked through OYO rooms and thus couldn't shift. My husband wanted to check-out immediately but later decided to stay back as we had already paid and things aren't that easy when aboard with a young one. Without a in-house restaurant and pathetic breakfast we promised ourselves never to come back again!
Good locality Hotel, Can be better
on Nov 14, 2015
It's a budget hotel in a good locality. They give free wi-fi which frequently disconnects and expires in every 8 hours. The complementary breakfast was horrible,bought from from some road side stalls. The wash basin was inside the room which dripped. We stayed for 3 days and not a single time there was any house keeping,even after we requested to clean dustbin. Bathroom was small but manageable.God knows when the geyser worked.If you want to shop,this place is great with good eatery outlets close-by. Though my personal experiences in all of them have been horrible.Worth a risk.
Budget hotel located in Pondy Bazaar Shopping Area
on Sep 3, 2015
A compact medium sized clean air- conditioned room with ensuite bathroom with hot/cold water shower. Hotel has an elevator. Staff are courteous,friendly & helpful. It is located in the lane just across famous Naidu Hall showroom in the busy Pondy Bazaar area, any woman's shopping delight. Hotel provides excellent Madras filter coffee from Sri Balaji Bhavan at Rs. 30/- a cup. The hotel premises is kept clean and has car parking facility for few cars.
The online reviews on this hotel, before my visit, were not encouraging. After staying for three days (Sep 1-3, 2015), I recommend this place to all types of visitors.
A lot of vegetarian eating options like Balaji Bhavan, Geetha Cafe, Saravana Bhavan, Adyar Ananda Bhavan on Sir Theyagaraya Road aka Pondy Bazaar and Sangeetha Veg. Restaurant, Idli Vilas on GN Chetty Road,etc. Lots of Non-vegetarian eating options nearby.
The bed is a Queen sized one and a six-footer like me had six inches of my leg outdside the bed. The linen were good.
I booked this hotel through OYO Rooms anbd got a good deal.
Run Down Hotel
on Dec 23, 2014
I first stayed here 10 yrs ago( when the hotel is new) and have been staying here if im in Chennai. The last stay was not impressive. The floor was sticky,under the bed is full of dirts, the aircon was making intermittent noise.The hotel staffs were just ok. The only plus point is the location.Do not stay here if can help it.
