Stayed here for 5 nights on a business trip and was pleasantly surprised as how modern this hotel was for indian standards, far better than some of the larger 5 stars chains and at a fraction of the price. The only downside was there is nothing to do within the vicinity and no taxis available so you end up using... More

This was the first hotel my parents and I stayed at for our two week South India trip. I booked this hotel based on the good reviews on Tripadvisor and other websites. I was a little bit sceptic at first, since the pictures on the website do not look that good. But boy, was I wrong. The hotel ambience is... More

My husband & I stayed at the Raintree for 8 nights. The room was spacious, comfortable & clean. The food was delicious with lots of choice. The staff were second to none. They were polite, accommodating and made us feel at home. They provided for our every need and couldn't do enough to help. I would happily recommend this hotel... More

This was my first stay in this hotel and I am really impressed...cool elegant look, warm hospitality and the dinner buffet was a fantastic spread (Mutton with raw mango dish was simply divine). Would like to be there again soon.

I was to put up at Raintree - Anna Salai. However, the last minute reservations got cancelled and the management informed that i would have to stay at St. Mary's. This totally cheesed me off, since they could have refused earlier rather than overbooking the rooms. However, Raintree took it on themselves to do all possible to calm an irate... More

Belated review on a stay in August 2013. The hotel is very modern, rooms are clean and quiet. I was on a conference rate, inclusive of Bfast, at very good value. Breakfast and dinner are buffet style with large choice, high quality. Top floor has a small swimming pool, very much apreciated in August weather. You can easily walk to... More

I stayed at this hotel for three nights in December 2014. The room was comfortable with no issues. The most outstanding thing about this stay was the food.

Everything was perfect other than the hotel transportation charges which were way out of line with other hotels where friends were staying. The renovated rooms were great. TV and wireless reception was outstanding
