The hotel is very large and really quite impressive. It has a lounge area with a tv and an amazing rooftop where you can watch the sunset! The staff is friendly enough but firm in their prices. I paid 450 for a single room which is fair for the size/cleanliness. You can pay additional to have wifi for the day.

If you wanna know how a typical old chennai house looks like, this is the place for you. Everything is neat and clean. And the staffs are friendly. You can meet travelers around the world here. Only downside was i didn't get any bill after paying!! That's suspicious.

This is definitely not the cleanest place in India. There is a lot of charm in this old guest house. A maze of corridors, stairs and patios. The rooms are unequal in quality, so you'll have to check a few before settling on price and your choice. Watch out, after agreeing on the price we were charged an extra 50Rs...

I stayed here for 1 night and it was great! The building is so unique and huge (ex-palace for a king), I spent a good half an hour exploring and it has a good view from the rooftop terrace. There is a social area with TV but to be honest you can chill anywhere. Raja (a member of staff) was...

The staff is very helpful and there is a man who will grand get chai and coffee in the morning for you. He is very sweet and a character. Broadland is a great place for a long or short stay. There is no AC but they will offer fans and make sure you are comfortable. While I was here, there...

Lovely place, I would recommend splashing out on the rooftop cottage. After arriving at the airport and braving the hustle and bustle this place is an oasis of calm to sit and plan your next move! Owners are really helpful and friendly, whole building is gorgeous fading grandeur. Wifi only downstairs, but views from the roof fantastic.

I spent three nights at Broadlands as a solo female traveler in the beginning of March 2016 and I loved this place. It isn’t luxurious by any means, but the old Muslim palace has tons of ambience, there’s a nice set of independent travelers and writers working in the rooms long-term and hanging out with their doors open, and the...
