Spent one night at Mahalaya Residency in Chennai on my way to Sri Lanka. It is strictly a transit hotel and not a place to stay if you are planning on spending any time in Chennai. The hotel is a mixture of new and old as it seems to have gone under some renovation. Rate can't be beat and it... More

I booked this hotel due to its affordable rate, proximity to airport and hotel provides complimentary breakfast & drop to airport. It is ideal for traveler in transit or who would arrive late in Chennai and needs to catch early morning flight. Food has tasty and reasonably priced. The rooms are wide, A/C is not that powerful and you need... More

First things first...you will not get many hotels at such prices and proximity to Chennai airport. It's strictly a transit hotel. Its a place with wifi, TV, running water and clean beds...period. Do not order food from the room service if you used to decent food quality. The food is horrible at the best. I ordered fruit salad with icecream.... More

A good hotel and very close to Meenampakkam airport at Chennai. Stay was comfortable and room service was prompt. Rooms were neat and clean. Staff at the reception were courteous when we arrived. For people who don't have any work at Chennai city and would like to catch a flight at ease, I recommend this hotel.

Almost like a scam, "as you are on transit, and you decided to stay in a hotel, empty your pocket" The front desk guy is just rude and speaks a lot which is just meaningless. I ended up there as I was on transit. The room and amenities are dirty but the price is exorbitant. To show a difference, I... More

24hour check out does not mean that you pay for the time you stayed. I arrived in the afternoon (17:00) and had to catch a plane the next day, leaving at 2:00 a.m., which means that I did not even stay 1,5 day at the hotel. Since they have 24-hour check out & check in, there is no reason why... More

Dirty Rooms, dirty bedsheets and towels and place full of musquitos. Food super oily and full of colour. Wifi Connectivity is useless here. Only thing good is free airport pick up and drop. Breakfast also is quite pathetic

I stayed two days with my daughter regarding her college admission. I really felt safe & secure here. All the staff' were very cooperative and polite. Especially, Mr.Suresh at reception guided us well to travel in Chennai. Neat rooms. But rates of food is little high, even though I will stay here if I come Chennai again. Only thing is... More
