Except for the location nothing is good about this hotel. They give a free airport pickup but will make you wait for an hour before picking you up even if you have informed about your arrival time. The staff are not at all trained to be polite. The room floor was so sticky that I dint even want to walk... More

I was visiting Chennai during summer 2013 on business and a couple of friends (2 girls and a guy) drove down from Coimbatore to meet me. They booked themselves at this hotel considering the proximity to my accommodation (booked by my office) and convenience to access various parts of Chennai. That same evening we all went out for dinner and... More

Good hotel considering its close proximity near to the airport.Just 5-7 mins drive from the airport.Service of the staff was good, the complimentary pick up and drop from and to airport is spot on without any waiting times. The rooms are clean and the food is also fine.I would certainly come back to the hotel if I have a much... More

Had to stop for a 11 hour overnight stay in Chennai close to the airport. This property provides airport pick-up and drop-off as part of the hotel service. One needs to call ahead to make sure they are aware that you are coming. Then you have to wait at the Maggie Counter for taxi pick-up. The property is nothing outlandish... More

Was here for 3 nights (Jan 6-9 ,2014). Hotel pick up was arranged. Check in was smooth and fast. Room size is good but other amenities like hand towel and toiletries missing (except a small bar of soap).Bathroom not up to the mark. The down turn is the room service where the staff do not understand the guest needs. The... More

Hotel pick up was fine. Rooms are not that great. There was no room service. When I asked for carrot juice, it was just coloured water. Rooms and bathrooms are clean, but not classy. Staff are polite and helpful Complimentary breakfast had fruits, juices idli etc..just normal. The usp of the hospital is its proximity to the airport

The room I stayed in was clean and spacious , and the room-rate included taxi-service both from and to the airport ( the latter at 2.15 am ) , which is only 2 km away . Both trips were in the hotel taxi and efficiently organised - the alarm call was made punctually - and the hotel took the trouble... More

The hotel is located 5 minutes from the airport and serves mainly as a transit hotel for people arriving or departing the next day. The rooms are clean and spacious, the bathroom was okay although the warm water took very long to start running. Staff was friendly, although they forgot to pick me up at the airport as per prior...
