Stayed in this hotel for 2 days in the month of December 2015.. The hotel is far off from the airport.. Rooms have all the basic amenities and basic cleanliness is maintained.. But if you talk about the service it used to take a lot of time.. The food was also not so great although there was variety available and... More

A terrible experience for me . Room was shabby , Washroom was not designed well , Breakfast a horrible one i had without much choice . Though the hotel is centrally located , it is not worth the tariff. Not at all a 3 star hotel , and not even a 1 star hotel. They should look into the tariff... More

The hotel is located very near the Mylapore Kapaleeshwarar temple. Sangeetha restaurant is within walking distance. Though the hotel offers free breakfast , we could not enjoy it since we had to catch a train early in the morning. We stayed only for a few hours but were pretty happy with what we saw and what we got. We were... More

All irresponsible people are as staffs in this hotel. When we booked the appointment for the bar, they agreed to come. But when i went in person, the staff was totally irresponsible, did not aware of the appointment and denied. We really pissed off with the way he spoke to us. Dont ever opt for this hotel. Worst service providers.

Well, in my prolonged cricket career I have travelled in lot of cities and stayed in various luxurious hotels. The service rendered to the Bengal cricket team was a tremendous effort where anything we required was done and served. The GM Mrs. Somasekharam was always there to see if we had any problem. The stay was made special by the... More

I visited Shelter Hotel for a seminar. I would say it's not the good choice. Air Conditioner flow was not maintained well. In the afternoon we felt the heat. Called the maintenance staff to check the temperature but they didnt do much on that. Rest rooms were pathetic. Water was flowing all over the floor. They say it as a... More

Reception area was well maintened and gave a good impression until one steps into the room. The room smelled of dust like it was never vacuumed, the bed post had a layer of dust like it was not wiped down for a very long time. But the staff were very helpful and friendly and that kind of made up for... More
