We come to this hotel since early 2000 and we have visited the hotel many times. Located in the heart of the colourful Triplicane area, it has always been an oasis of calm and peace.The rooms are simple but clean with tiled walls. Since a couple of years there is a new extension. Always arriving around 01.00 a.m. due to... More

Don't expect much. This is a basic hotel in a big city in India. If this is your first trip, you will be surprised and if you already know India, well, this is one impersonal hotel, not very clean, but if you are lookingfor a bed and a shower, well, this is good enough. Location is really good. So, for... More

We stayed stayed twice at The Paradise, en route to and on our return from Sri Lanka. In between they looked after our surplus luggage in a secure room, for just R10 per day! Clean, comfortable rooms, and reasonably quiet being off the main road. Staff were friendly and helpful. Location is good, being a short distance from an airport... More

Such a lovely experience with the best people around. PARADISE GUEST HOUSE was my right choice to from so many for my stay at Chennai after hearing great reviews from my colleagues who also had their stay at paradise guest house earlier.

Typical Indian guesthouse. Cockroaches, stuffy room, greedy staff. Double Non-AC price 600 rupees and 700 rupees (big very old TV). WiFi per day one device 50 rupees, slow. We paid for 3 days, but stay only 2. Change didn't give me. Available good big parking. More good don't stay in Chennai. More good place for stay in Mamallapuram, in Pondicherry... More

I had the best experience staying at the paradise guest house. The manager and the bell boys were so welcoming. 3 days of stay was really worth money the room provided to me at the best suitable price. The facilities and service inside and outside the room was so contented. I would request travelers around the world to pick paradise... More

I have stayed at Paradise once, and used their showers before too. The rooms are better than those at Broadlands, and are also ensuite which is a nice touch (only some in Broadlands are). Don't overstay the checkout time (even by 15 minutes) - they have a nasty habit of trying to charge people extortionate amounts (in context) for not... More
