We're the first time in India travel and we don't know about the price actually but this hotel was extremely not reasonable and the lobby work so slowly, we book the bus tickets there but we need to check for it so many times by our self to go to lobby. But other stuff was nice and helpful.

It's one and only USP, is it's near airport. The distance to airport is hardly few KM 9not more than 4KM). Room was OK, but some damp smell was coming. Food is again OK, OK but costly. Breakfast is served only after 7AM, so who are for early morning flight, they may not get breakfast. They drop people back to... More

Had stayed overnight at this hotel on 6th July 2015. The room was neat and tidy and I was really happy with the prompt service. The hotel has an in-house restaurant too. Its good if you don't want to move out of the hotel and try in some other restaurant.

Really ordinary place for the kind of price they charge. One can actually get a better deal in proper star hotels than this hotel. Even the restaurant in the hotel is pretty ordinary. Definitely not recommended.

I stayed at Mahalaya Residency for a night in April'15. I was reaching Chennai quite late in night (11:45 pm) and had an early morning flight to catch so wanted a clean, comfortable place near the Airport. Hence chose this place. I wasn't disappointed with what I had expected. Clean room and linen, good wi-fi and best of all, airport... More

Rooms are ok, restaurant service is poor. Cold food, not willing to serve hot breakfast. Lunch buffet had more non veg variety than veg. Clean rooms, AC good. This hotel is just ten minutes away from the airport. Pick & drop facility is available

Being nearby airport, it was my choice for transit. They offer any time prompt pickup and drop service. Rooms are clean and maintained. Was happy to find Hindi speaking waiter who helped us traveling nearby places.

I opted for this hotel due to its proximity from airport and I had no problems with the room and cleanliness. Good for overnight transit stay, but rooms will not have all the toiletries available in standard hotels. The hotel provided complimentary air port pickup and drop. Being 5 min away from airport, one can call the hotel cab driver... More

I stayed here for a night on my way to Kerala. The best thing about this hotel is their free airport service. It is well arranged and organized. Just tell them the flight number and the cab for you is ready. The free buffet breakfast which they provided was only average; though the itinerary for breakfast was quite rich. The... More

I got to know of the Mahalaya Hotel while searching the web for a transit hotel near Chennai Airport. Since my stay was only for 4-5 hours and the rates matched my budget, I decided to take a chance. The best thing about the hotel is their pick-up from Chennai Airport and drop back. The check-in is quick and so... More
