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

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
