“Best for solo/business trip”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

This hotel was very near to the kodambakkam railway station from which connectivity to chennai central is very good by local trains. So, even if i was new to chennai, did not feel any difficulty in reaching the hotel. Actually i went for an exam at a school in arcot road which was walkable from this hotel and so, everything went very well. Totally, i can say that its good and worth the amount we spent.

The staff made me feel welcome and provided excellent service. No complaints, save to say that a repaint of the interior walls would make a big difference to the overall appearance of the place. I was very satisfied and from what I have seen of other hotels on the web I think Nayagara was good value for the price.The hotel is also very close (100m) to a trainstation, very convenient for getting to/from the airport and a lot faster and cheaper than taking a taxi - get off at the Koddambakkam station for the Nayagara Hotel. Wifi was also very efficient.
I have no immediate plans for returning to Chennai, but if I did I shall be happy to stay with them again.

Room Tip: Deluxe rooms are not more expensive than budget and you can negotiate discount and free breakfast fo...

The name Nayagara is perhaps a phonetic translate of Niagara. I noticed that there's a gigantic oil painting of Niagara Falls USA behind the front desk.
We didn't know what to expect as our friend chose this hotel for us, but it was a surprisingly good stay. The hotel was doing a lot of construction during our stay so it was perhaps a bit dustier than normal. Don't expect state-of-the-art decor, or special security keys for your rooms. It's a simple hotel for locals (mostly).
The front desk person was extra helpful in getting/negotiating auto-rickshaws for two obvious tourist. Everyone was very friendly.
If your taxi driver doesn't know the area well, it's rather hard to find the first few times. Take their business card with you when you go out.

Have been staying in Nayagara Hotel since Oct 2009 during my frequent business visits to Chennai. Great location, amazing hospitality, good food and cost effective. Very nice hotel in its class. If you are looking for a simple business hotel with a nominal budget, this place is your bet.

Very average budget hotel, near Kodambakam station near Liberty Talkies.
Rate is quite OK , rooms are OK not that great , used to be quite neat till some years back but now the beds & linen are not upto the mark.

Food is decent, but service has become lousy of late. But OK for someone on a low budget. Of Course it is very safe that way.

It is a simple hotel and every thing here is simple.
No frills.
Just average in maintenance, rooms are k for a sleep and staff are some- friendly some average.
For cost effectiveness it is a hotel with access to railway station, and bus service.
But do not expect too much in room, or services. Hotel has one restaurant -south Indian food is ok, but do not venture any thing more-room service is poor but if one gets friendly with staff , you can expect better individually.But i stay here often just for the sake of-cost economics and simple frills. No high fashions no high expectations.

This is not a hotel for high end business man but for some one who makes visits to chennai for tourism, social calls, or personal visits.., and for just few days.
