Stayed here for a period of 10 nights. I was in India with a group of 16 year old female students of mine for a school excursion visiting local schools. The Residency became our home away from home. Many of the girls had never traveled before, but were put at ease by the wonderful staff. "The Right Place" restaurant serves... More

Rooms are adequately sized. The breakfast spread and quality are excellent. The staff is cooperative and professional. The rates for hiring hotel cars are very high and need a thorough review. A few plug points did not work in the room and frequent checks are therefore advisable for Housekeeping.

The Residency was much better than we had expected, the location is cool on the junction road, close to T Nagar shopping place, and not too far from Business Districts. Airport though is approx 45min ride. The first impression is very good, drive in porch, decent well decoarted lobby area, quick attentive front desk. Lifts are fast, hallway to room... More

A bad experience, after having stayed in this hotel twice earlier. The card key provided to access the room was frayed at the edges, making it difficult to open the door. On our return from a hospital visit the door would not open and the bell boy's assistance was needed to open the door, which opened after a 15 minute... More
