This was what I expected for the price and for a budget hotel . Would recommend for one nght for airport flights as only 10 mins from airport. Excellent airport transfer service. We had got our own flight arrival time wrong by 2 hrs but Mars were there waiting to pick us up and also ensured we were up in... More

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

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

Its a self serve restaurant with 4 tables. They were on time in dropping me... 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
