Though it is one of the oldest hotels in Chennai , Taj management maintains it as damn new one. Ideal place to do the business. Though it is located in the centre of the city, there is full of greenery around. The Rooms are very spacious and clean. The staffs are all well trained. Fully enjoyed the food and the... More

Ideally located in the heart of Chennai, the hotel is a stone's throw away from major landmarks and business centres. The hospitality extended by the staff is commendable as for all Taj Group of Hotels. The buffet breakfast spread had was wide ( if not expansive) and the eggs which I had ordered were done to perfection. The only disappointment... More

Awesome experience, great hospitality, perfect location. The hotel is nice and clean (inspite of being old) Had 2 days work in chennai, hardly felt like moving out of the hotel. The pool is amazing, breakfast was great, house keeping and in room dinning is nice as well.

This is one of the best hotel to stay in Chennai. It has a perfect location not very far from the airport and railway station. The hotel is a little old but very well refurbished by the Taj under the brand name of Vivanta. The break fast at Verandah is very well spread out, shopping malls and the markets are... More

Loved this place. Being a Taj property service is impeccable. The rooms & baths are exotic & large. One can feel the old world charm there.The old rustic looks adds to the new world charm. The restaurant along the pool is amazing with great food. The buffet at night was also great. The only hassle is that the hotel is... More

Was very disappointed with this Taj. First of all, we are American citizens of Indian Origin. When we went to check in, the guy at the counter kept repeating " but you are Indians aren't you?" .they were already assuming you had to be white to be Americans which made us very irritable. The rooms were nice but the people... More

Great place to stay, though the hotel surely has seen better times. Staff at the front lobby need to be properly trained to handle guests, as I felt the check in wasn't up to Taj standards. Food at the speciality Chettinad cuisine restaurant was excellent, special thanks to all the hosts for their impeccable service. Don't even think of visiting... More
