Access: As I drove down from Hyderabada, The landmarks for reaching the hotel is very easy. The Front desk: The staff was reasonably helpful. I booked an AC Deluxe double room and when we reached the hotel at 7.30 PM, the room was ready. The person at the reception gave us some good advice on planning for the sightseeing. The Room: The room was big and neat and comfortable. The linen was clean, air conditioner was running and taps and flush were working. The bathroom was compact and reasonably clean.The city view from romm was excellent. Food & Room Service: Food was good. Service was very late. Overall: On the whole, the hotel is a good option for the budget traveller and for short stays... and easy to access.

Hotel was really good..Very good location and inspite of passing trains there was hardly any noise in the room..The room was clean and the toilet was pretty decent..There was hot water available throughout the day..They had a LCD tv in the room and probably the only drawback was that ESPN,star sports and star cricket were not coming., Can't comment on the food as I didn't try any of their dishes..Overall my stay here was good and hardly anything to complain about..

TRAVEL I travelled with my family with my two kids of 12 & 10 years to Chennai & stayed in Fortel Hotel, Egmore, Chennai from 20th October 2012 to 24th October 2012. Booking of Hotel . The price offered for this Business Class 4star Hotel was the lowest on Travelguru. It was absolute hassle free online booking. Location of Hotel The Hotel Fortel is located just a few meters ahead of EGMORE railway station of Chennai and is centrally located and is easily accessible from anywhere from the city by road & rail at any point of time.

There was nothing exceptionally great about this hotel although the staff was warm and courteous, I thought the cost of room and dining options was a little high -I was surprised when they decided to charge me Rs 180 /- for the breakfast which I had ordered during complimentary breakfast, but later on when I was checking out I spoke to the manager telling him that this was the 1st time any hotel had charged me for breakfast and he quickly decided to waive this off..

The hotel is supposed to be a 3 star, but I think you guys should check the quality and have your ratings for the hotel. I was not given the electronic key card on check-in, I was told to take someone from the reception every time I had go to the room. I got into the room and I found the toilet dirty, when I called the duty manager, she said she will change the room, when I asked why the toilet was not clean, she replied I can get the toilet cleaned or room changed, it's upto individual preference!! I was surprised by this attitude. They changed my room, the next morning when I wanted to heat some water, I saw that the kettle was dirty, I had to wash it, even the cups were dirty and to make it worse the towels in the bathroom were torn!!! Again this time the duty manager was apologetic and set it right. The next day morning I went down to have breakfast ate some fruits and went to take some idli, I saw a cockroach crawling out of the lid The third day was ultimate, I saw c

Hotel is very nearer to Egmore railway station. Front office arranged room within reasonable time. Inside the room water control fitting was not good, whenever we want to stop flowing water we need to call house keeping. Surprisingly there is no mention of room numbers for room service numbers.We got extension numbers by using cell phone to call reception. After getting through when i am trying to call room service, no one to pick up call. Room Service is very very pathetic.

To Reach Chennai We took early morning train ( Satabdi Express ) from Bangalore to reach Chennai Central around 11 AM. It was hot and sunny day, climate was bit humid than what we experienced in Bangalore. When I called Hotel reception to arrange pick up, they suggested catching any transport nearby to station since distance from Station to Hotel was 2 Km. With some initial struggle we manage to catch one Auto Rikshaw and reach hotel at 11:30 AM. Hotel Rooms We took two executive double rooms. Rooms were reasonably clean and moderate in size. Washroom was neat , though accessories were not of good qualities, we managed with our own. Rooms had one big LCD, wardrobe, Sofa , one chair and plenty of room decors. I was very particular to check AC and was working quite satisfactorily. Lobby was slightly dirty, no centralized AC, there was one lift with no fan, quite suffocating inside. However front desk was clean and I was very impressed to notice different clocks for 9 different

Location is excellent. Close to both Central & Egmore stations. About 5-7 KMs from the US Consulate/VFC. AC kept switching off once in a while during the day. They said it was happening due to power-cuts but I was not sure. Several TV Channels were blocked. There are several options for food around. Saravana Bhawan is walkable from Fortel.

I booked a room in Fortel Hotel for the intervening nights of 19th and 20th April. The hotel was very badly maintained. Considering that you stated the rate of Rs 3500 + taxes, I expected the room to be god and opted for it as you were also offering a promo of 1 night free for every night paid. Actually, the room was worth only Rs 1500 and if it was mentioned that way, I would have not opted the hotel. The Toilet was bad- and was badly maintained. The house keeping did not clean the room/toilet and was done only after I complained in the evening on my return. Even after that, the HK person just left the supplies for the tea maker tray in a heap, not even bothered to arrange them in the tray. (They are simply not trained!) The bath screen was awfully dirty. Breakfast was just so-so with the result, I had breakfast outside in a nearby Saravana Bhavan hotel. Complimentary wifi gave me a scare. When I connected, it was showing the message " a parallel IP address is created

The hotel is conveniently located near the Egmore Railway station. However, if you have a room facing the station, you actually end up hearing the railway public announcements. I happened to get one such room on the 5th floor, and requested to be re-allocated a different room. This was promptly done in about 15 min. time. The food quality and the ambience of bar, the chinese room, and the coffee shop are all good. Prices are decent. The staff was friendly. I did not know, but they also have a gym, which is a must for the business traveller. All in all, a very pleasant stay.

There was electic kettel and hair dryer.Room service is good. Free internet card is provided which can be used for one hour.Nearby restaurants sarvana and sangeetha provide excellent authentic south indian food at very reasonable price. It is good idea to take option without breakfast in the hotel and have breakfast at these places. You will save some money and enjoy good south indian culinary.

Good: Location is very close to Railway station Egmore. Walking distance of a few minutes. Gives you a few choices in eating also as there are many restaurants nearby. I had a room overlooking the tracks and the St Andrews Church. Nice view with very little disturbance from train noise. Basic amenities are all provided for. Level of room amenities and facilities is good. Cable channels are adequate and Bed is comfortable with enough pillows and AC worked well. I particularly enjoyed the Power Shower they had. Room size is also big, with a decent working area. And a large chair to sit in and a small area near the window to sit too. There is a lady in the restaurant who is quite motherly with all the travellers. Feels nice. Check in at around 1 am was smooth and hassle free. There is a small park near by, which is good for you to catch up on your morning walk. as there are no gym facilities. Bad: The upholstery in the room needs immediate change.

The stay at Fortel [3 nights] was not as per expectation. The room ambiance is ok , but cleanliness not up to mark. one can see cockroaches moving in room and in toilet. Hotel staff has no inclination to fix up your problem [e.g. the electronic safe in the room was not working and I informed immediately after check in , but till I checked out no one bothered to repair or replace it]. If you wish to place an order[room services] for anything[water or tea] ,you have to wait at least for 20 to 30 minutes. In short not value for money.
