We stayed here four nights because they did have Wi-Fi, (ask for a room close to the router). It was okay, clean enough. They seem to have recurring problems with water and hot water availability. I suspect they hope to get more money from your orders for room service, which we never used but could count on someone knocking at... More

When we arrived very late at Chennai airport, we didn't know where to go. A "nice" man offered to take us to a nearby hotel and we followed....we didn't have a choice. He took us to Hotel Mars and we checked in. The rooms were filthy with stained sheets and a repulsive toilet. It was way to expensive and you... More

The only advantage is that it is near the airport and has a free pickup-drop facility from the airport. For a few hours stay it is ok. if you need to have a few hours sleep before catching an early morning flight opt for this hotel in Pallavaram.Service is good...courteous...but rooms are not well maintained and bathrooms are better less...

Have stayed at this hotel on a couple of occasions primarily due to the fact that its easier to catch early morning flight from here. Most of the Taxi drivers and Auto Rickshaws will take you to this hotel in case you tell them to take you to a hotel close to the airport. My experience has been extremely bad... More

I am senior with YHA and overseas experience. I also worked as Public park Manager for a state. I came as pilgrim and used that site. The value is quite adequate with closeness to varied Religious facilities and train and staff helpfulness. I think some of other reviews are bit bitter and unfair. Quiet clean but needs painting and some... More
