I was in Madras to attend a training at British Council at Anna Salai, hence was looking for a good hotel in nearby areas.
This hotel became visible on Google map & I visited the place.
I subsequently stayed in the hotel for two nights and found it okay.
The rooms are small, no doubt, but they are clean. The room service is quick. The tariff is also okay considering the fact that no free breakfast/ tea/ coffee is provided.
Yes, free wi-fi facility is available and there seems to be no restriction on the usage.
Many important offices (passport office, US Coonsulate etc) are nearby.
This hotel is definitely a safe place to stay.
Recommended for budget travellers.
Good place for a short stay

Spencer Mall is at walk able distance, good place to stay with family .

Value for Money place
Suffices for a day or two. Good part is 24 hours check in/out. Best factor is location and price!

Had visited Chennai and needed to be nearer to Spencer Plaza on Anna Salai. Chose this hotel. Cab driver had a tough time finding the place. Is just 100 meters off the arterial Anna Salai, yet the access from the main road to the hotel is very narrow. Further during the day, two wheeled vehicles and food carts occupy the space further narrowing the space available for a car to traverse. These days, with the metro work in progress, closed off access and one ways make the approach that much more tough. It is tiny hotel, but completely functional. Lift worked. Room size sufficed for two adults and an infant. Air conditioning worked. Hot water was available on the tap. Toiletries was limited to two bars of Medimix ayurvedic soap. Once inside the room, noise levels from outside were minimal. Quality of towels, bed linen and blankets were non-luxurious, yet functional. The 24 hours reception service was good and helpful at all times. Languages used were English, Tamil and Hindi. They do not have a kitchen/restaurant, but will fetch food from nearby hotels and serve in their own utensils and cups to the room. Helpers are primarily from outside the state and will tend to speak in Hindi. Go for it, if you need to be in Chennai for a short while, need to be near the key area of Anna Salai and most importantly for just USD 20 a night, it is a steal!

Very late booking thanks to Booking.com placing us in a hovel. Managed to book this and move in during a power cut following the recent storm.
Rooms were clean and ample size with ac, fan and bathroom similar.
No hot water and despite constant complaints, no resolution, it is India.
Staff were pleasant enough but couldn't help when it came to stopping the noise outside early every morning whilst they sank a borehole.
Good location for seeing the city/cricket, although the whole city is in turmoil due to Metro works. Down an alley off the main road, don't let it put you off.
WHY STAY ANYWHERE ELSE ???
