One of the oldest hotel properties in Chennai - the Connemara takes you back to the 'spacious days' with open architecture and elegant decor. I am thrilled to see the original structure maintained so well and appropriately supported by the excellent service and customer oriented staff. Without an exception, EVERY staff member, from the hostess to the reception staff to... More

On our visit to Chennai in February 2015 we stayed for 3 nights at Vivanta by Taj. As our flight from Kuala Lumpur arrived in the morning we reached hotel earlier than the check-in time.

This was my first visit to India, and I was pleased with the standard of this hotel, especially considering the price paid. The room was very well presented, spacious and more than suitable for my requirements. It was clean, and all facilities worked as expected. My only complaint was that the mini-bar wasn't fully replenished each night. I would recommend... More

This hotel is a must-visit to all those who love some history lesson alongwith their stay... Harking back a century, the Connemara presents genteel surroundings and a nostalgic throwback to the days of the Raj, and the life that was lived then. Some of the areas within the hotel may not gel with the modern-day concept of effective usage of... More

This is the only Heritage Hotel still standing in Chennai. That is what Taj tells me. I remember this place even before Taj Hotels bought it. It was bang in the centre of the city and it is right next to Spencers Plaza which used to be THE place to shop in Chennai. Checkin was very simple, They already had... More
