hello, travellers in India, especially for those planing to stay in this lodging place near Pallavaram Raliway station and a bus stop. I had a chance to stay for the academics and my trip to certain places in chennai, however, a manager, who claims that there are So many stations bewteen Pallavaram and Chromepet, is the one whom every traveller SHOULD avoid when check-in, because he has the case of asking the traveller the First Payment of the monery in credit or cash..and then calling the rikshaw (the typical chennai public transportation) for 3 us dollars for just 2~5cents bus fare, that too, right in front of the hotel,
moreover, there are not one hotel front keeper and there are three or even more. Much to the dissatisfaction from a particular manager, the room boys are quite endevearing,with or
without the tip of the room service...At last, this place has one really good position and vicinity to the chennai international AIRPORT..AND few good room boys and next chromepet shopping area..hence, suggesting the future visitors for a few days stay rather for mid and long term like one week or two weeks...in some rooms the water heater for cold season is prevalently not there at all!!!!!

I had stayed in Hotel Mars classic (IInd time) as it was close to Chennai Airport and easy to connect with airport event in midnights. But the ameneties there were very very average and the staff also is very impolite. Also the tariff they are charging is no way worth it. Will recommend this Hotel to travellers who cant to catch some flight in non convinient hours.

We hired an Omni Van from the Railway Station to take us to a good nearby hotel and this is exactly where the driver took us. We were welcomed by a group of friendly staff assisting with our luggage and different room options. The Process was quick and we finally got into our cozy air-conditioned room. The children were busy scrolling through the Television while the Mrs. was having a look at the tourist attractions around the city. The room was clean and everything was at place. We had a terrific view of the city from our window. Then we all freshened ourselves and decided to have dinner at a nearby restraunt. After a lavish meal, we returned back to our room. Since we are a big family, we were short of one bed. We quickly called up Room Service and they quickly helped us out. They set everything and offered goodbye. Of Course, Theres always a tip for good work so we gave them some and I'm pretty sure they were very thankful for it. Next Morning, we woke up and headed for breakfast just downstairs. It was a buffet of a variety of South Indian Dishes. It was a delight to have them. We offered our compliments to the chef and left for a tour of the city which was arranged by the hotel themselves for us at a very reasonable rate. We had a jolly good time. Soon it was time for us to check out. We packed everything and one of the staff helped us with our luggage. We finished our payment and our luggage was loaded into a car and off to the Railway Station back home. It was a very pleasant experience and my family had a great time. The room felt like home - Cozy and Comfortable. I am definitely coming back to this hotel on my next visit to Chennai

The hotel atmosphere is very worst and the staffs are not even friendly. It was very hot and the western sunlight comes directly into the rooms. One best thing is it is very near to airport.

Dont stay here... Can even award a single star but this is the lowest here. 1. Dirty rooms full of bugs, 2. Drunken and rude staff, 3. Worst service, 4. Worst possible location... They call it a three star hotel but it is not. It could be minus 3 star hotel.
Stay here and Repent. That's all
