I stayed here for one night. The hotel is located approx 500 metres from Marina Beach and 15kms from Airport, there are good eating & shopping options in the vicinity. I got the room on 10th floor, non- smoking type. The view of beach and nearby areas from window was refreshing. Room is completely digital with electronic switches for lighting... More

Value for money, cleanliness and things in order seems to be the basic theme for everything at the hotel. Checkin at the reception is a little slow though. Amenities in room are adequate. Location is fine.

But the staff was courteous enough and gave... More

Clarion is located close to Marina beach and is walkable distance from Citi Centre. Has two good restaurants inside, they serve good food and service is pretty prompt. Rooms are modern, functional and clean. But their reception management requires serious improvement, it is managed by junior staff and they made us wait for 20mins to give a room, and after... More

I booked this hotel for the stay during my visa interview at American Consulate. Clarion (formerly 'The president hotel') did not disappoint me as it located right next to City Center mall, there are plenty of food options around. We are provided with a neat and clean room and got a great city view. Both me and my wife enjoyed... More
