We stayed at the serviced apartment of Samaya Inn in January 2011. The room was simple but nicely decorated and had a jiant TV screen. I accompanied my parents for medical reasons to Chennai. The place is very near to Apolo hospital where you can walk. Also the Shankar Netrlaya is located nearby, will take 10 minutes by an auto-rickshaw.... More
