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

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.
