Even if you arrive at midnight in Chennai and have no where else to sleep, avoid it with a barge pole. It is dingy, seedy, and offers no value for money. Unfortunately due to late flights by Etihad, we arrived very late in Chennai, missed our connections to Coimbatore (where we had bookings) and we were forced to overnight here.... More

This hotel is located just couple of kms away from the International airport. This is a small and a low budget hotel with no amenities. There are AC and non ac rooms. The rooms are small and decently kept. The service is ok. The hotel is recommended for people who don’t want to spend much just to stay overnight or... More

Terrible hotel. Very few staff for such a big hotel. Bloody same person serving you food, cleaning toilet and room. When room service will collect the utensils after lunch or dinner, they will not clean the table. You have to call separately for cleaning the table. When we entered the room very first day, the person who brings the luggage... More

Bathroom still had poop in toilet surrounded by mosquitoes n flies! Roaches all over the room. Smell and stain of vomit from previous guest's alcoholic rampage was obvious. Manager would not change room coz of... More

Had buffet food at this place for a getto and found the food to be very average and not a penny worth for the amount it was charged. The food was not so tasty and not suggested. There are many other better restaurants around and great options in Chromepet-Pallavaram stretch.

I have stayed many times at Hotel Mars, even when it was not as developed yet as it has become, just to get a few hours sleep before a long trip. As everyone says, the proximity to the airport is its strong point, and that it is the only reasonably priced, acceptable quality place in the area. And not to... More

The first drawback to this hotel is location. people who use cabs can access this hotel. by any chance u prefer public transport, you are gone. you need to walk near to 1km to access bus stand. you feel uncomfortable to access this hotel if you are not familiar with Chennai and tamil. and even auto guys charge more, if...

From the outside this hotel looks modern and efficient. Different story once you get inside.Rooms are a reasonable size but ours was filthy with walls that had not seen a coat of paint for years really badly marked. Floor was filthy too. Bathroom ugh.....only used it as a necessity.Extremely noisy throughout the night and showed no concern when we complained,... More
