Hotel is located conveniently close to the park station (for local trains) and Chennai central station. Staff are courteous. However it is too close to the tracks and if you get a room on that side you can feel vibrations whenever a train passes.
Our stay in the Ambassador Pallava was a very pleasant one.
Excellent location with restaurants, juice centers, supermarket, ATMs just outside the hotel. Superb breakfast menu with authentic south indian fare, very tasty.
Good value for money.
At first i was horrified to have booked at this hotel it looked like a haunted place I was pleasantly surprised to look at the room ( Deluxe AC). Was extremely comfortable to stay in. I was with my family and was absolutely comfortable staying here.
Don't get fooled by looking at the reception and the staff. Yes a lot needs to be done to improve the decorum at the reception. Overall was good
This is my second stay at Hotel Pandian. While the facilities are lacking, the staff is wonderfully friendly and accomodating. The Front Office Manager, Mr. Sudeesh Kumar is exceptionally accomodating and helpful and gave me a warm greeting every time he saw me. His office door was always open to me and he was ready to quickly remedy any issues I was having. The front desk staff is also very warm, friendly and helpful. The main issue about the hotel is that is is extremely noisy due to it's location. In addition, the housekeeping staff are also very noisy in the mornings. The quality of the rooms needs improvement and each of the rooms I have stayed in could do with a fresh coat of paint. Most importantly-New shower curtains please!! Also, having free wi-fi is wonderful but you must check in at the front desk and get a new login/password EVERY DAY. Why is this necessary? It's inconvenient to the guest and wastes time for the front desk staff each time they have to stop and log in another wi-fi usage. Why can't we just get one log in/password for the duration of the stay? Overall, I felt very welcomed by the staff upon my second visit to the hotel but the quality of the rooms and the excess noise makes me very hesitant to stay there again.
First all staff were courteous and helpful. The check in process was smooth and efficient. Room service and house keeping was excellent. A few suggestions are that the hotel is aging and they could do with renovating the bath rooms.
It was a pleasant stay overall. A minor irritant, the knob of the toilet flush was half broken, it was expected that the hotel authority would take care of such issues without waiting for a complaint from the occupant.
