The hotel is tucked away in a dark alley, not good for us since we arrived late at night. It is pretty close to Egmore station which was convenient. The staff was not terribly friendly. The room had bugs and could use a cleaning. Lighting was dim. No wifi. Bathroom was pretty bad. It was cheap and we were only... More

Had a bad experience staying at this hotel, there was nobody to help to carry our luggage to our rooms, rooms were not upto the mark, linens were dirty. No proper room service. Front office was not polite. Although the management tried his best but was not contactable after lights went off in a room then was provided another room.

We stayed in Chennai for 2 days which was more than enough and chose this hotel as our base. The hotel seems to be average quality by Indian standards but as it is in Chennai, it was extremely noisy. We got 2 very poor nights sleep as there were noisy guests, traffic and a random siren that went off throughout... More

Hotel Melody offered us a pleasant stay. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the location is great, and the rooms are cheap. The rooms are simple, but generally clean. If getting a triple room, be aware that the third bed is just a thin mattress on the floor. While that didn't bother us too much, I think the price... More

I had been here this weekend and it was overall a pleasant stay. The location is in right in the heart of busy city. even though situated in a very noisy and busy locality once you come inside the hotel it is pleasant as though your in a home.The food around the locality is great,the room boys are very helpful.

The owners are very gentle soft spoken and... More
