The location of the hotel is good and stay is comfortable. The rooms are spacious and clean. The breakfast included has a lot of options which was perfect because it had North and South Indian delicacies. The staff was courteous and helpful.

A very nice cozy kind of place with good south indian and chinese cuisine. The friendly and helpful staff add the values for money. I stayed in this smoke free hotel for 2 nights and it was really good.

We were travelling with family and booked 3 rooms and requested 2 cots for 2 separate room. We got a cot 24 hours later, that too after informing the reception over 10 times. The rooms were well laid out, apart from one frustrating functional flaw, lack of a door in the shower. The whole bathroom would flood, even after a... More

I checked in at Night 1145 PM. Check in wwas smooth but i feel understaffed at that moment. Morning breakfast has combination of North and south both. Taste was nice and enioyable. The great beauty is 24 hrs checkout timings. Room was spacious and they offered complementary fruit bucket also. Airport is approximately 16 KM Far. Useful for business travellers.

There were no napkins and the second day they cleared the towels without replacement. I was really upset about that. Food is average. Overall decent,but given the hospitality for the price I am not going... More

I visited this place a couple of weeks back while in Chennai on a business trip. The hotel is good with neat rooms and bathrooms. Food is decent .. Just a word of advice , stick to ordering Indian food at least for in room dining.. I ordered pasta which wasn't that great ..

I stayed at The Residency for two days while I was in Chennai for work. The rooms are nicely furnished, clean and well lit. The food was also very good. The breakfast buffet had a good spread and taste wise also very good.
