Hotel City Heart Premium, Chandigarh

Stayed in this hotel for a night for five hours with my family. That’s right, for five hours. Came up from Shimla to take the flight back to Chennai the next day morning at 8.
First of all they normally have a limit of 3 adults per room including an extra bed. But considering that we r gonna be there for only a couple of hrs and the fact that we are family of four they let us have a double bed room with an extra bed. The room is one of the biggest ones I’ve seen in a medium sized hotels like these ones. The double bed was huge enough for my parents and my younger bro and I was happy with my extra bed which was way more than enough. The ac was a bit old but did its job beautifully. Got the room with access to the terrace which was an added beauty. The bathroom was really clean. And the lighting and the way the tv can be turned around to see if from the front and the back was actually awesome.

On the downside the food price was way too pricey. Ended up getting some light refreshments from Hot Millions that was just a shop away. Plus didn’t have enough time to mingle with the staffs to know more about their service but they looked neat and helped us with our luggage when I had to wake them up at 6 in the morning.

Overall I was really satisfied and happy with it.

Vijay and Vijay Sethupathi shoulder a mediocre film: Master Review

A flawed protagonist and a powerful antagonist have always proven to be successful tropes in the world of cinema. The hero, when being anything but perfect, makes way for a beautiful story arc as he convalesces and a strong villain makes the hero’s triumph at the end larger. Despite having both of these, Vijay’s Master feels far from a perfect flick thanks to succumbing to irregular pacing and a middling screenplay. Master follows the trials and tribulations of JD (Vijay), an alcoholic college professor whose valiant effort towards the student community plants a belief in his colleague Charu (Malavika Mohanan) that he would be able to do the same to the kids in a juvenile correction centre that needs… correction. Armed with a just kada, a classic four-wheeler, a Persian cat and a cool pair of sunglasses, JD embarks on a journey that will collide with that of Bhavani’s (Vijay Sethupathi). On paper, Master looks like a failproof star vehicle – the story of a man out there to teach lesson

Spago Inn, Mahabalipuram

It was yet another trip to Mahabalipuram and if you visit the famous tourist town as much as I do, you should be knowing that unless you’re a tourist, it’s better to stay from the centre of the city. A quick search told me that Spago Inn, a considerably new property has made its way to ECR, right at the entrance of Mahabs. I had also seen it, right on the main road, during my regular drives down that brilliant stretch of tarmac. The town is famous for pocket-friendly options making it perfect for a day’s retreat and Spago Inn too fits the bill.  Unlike most of the properties in Mahabs, Spago Inn has a car parking space, enough for more than half a dozen four-wheelers. The room is compact, similar to most of the properties in that price range but ticks off all the basic boxes one would expect. The place is extremely clean and neat. The linens were tidy and so was the bathroom. The bed was comfy too and it was perfect fo

Northern Suites, Bangalore

Hotels like Northern Suites remind us that it’s not actually that big a deal for the customers to have a perfect experience. On my way to Coorg by bike from Chennai, I stopped by at Bangalore and as a city with tons of options, I was lucky enough to spot this hidden gem. Located at Brookefields, one of the city’s best areas, I was happy to discover a place which has all the basic amenities a person travelling alone would need. To be honest, it took a lot of searching online as I needed a place that’s light on the wallet yet be comfy as possible. Considering I was all by myself, I didn’t mind being a bit adventurous and that’s how I landed here. Thankfully, they have an open space right opposite the hotel which was more than enough to park my bike. Though I was sceptical about it being an open space, I was glad that it was safe and sound when I got back the next day.  As far as the room is conc
