“Good place to stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

We stayed at the Lotus this weekend.

My first requirement was an extended checkout. They have a 24 hour checkout policy and you can check in any time. That kind of flexibility is great when you are driving down and cannot be sure when you'll get there.

My other requirement was a room with a kitchen. This I did not get. Like someone else mentioned before, the kitchenette room had a strange musty smell and we traded in for a suite instead.The kitchenette is adequately stocked and this room would be a great option for someone staying long on work. They DO need to check the plumbing though.

Also, the whole place is by design sealed and air conditioned so if you like fresh air and open windows you might want to look elsewhere.

The breakfast was ok but they have a lot of other eating options close at hand - being so centrally located - so that was not a problem.

The room was neat and clean. It was spacious enough to give the kids room to play for the short while we were there.

However, this is purely a functional place. No pool and I did not notice(to be fair i did not look or ask for) any kind of entertainment. The TV had sufficient channels and decent display quality.

So all in all, for short or business trips, a good place to stay in the center of the city. Good value for money.

Room Tip: Unless you <i>really</i> want to cook, skip the kitchenette room. It smells. Saravana do...

I was initially staying in an expensive hotel in T Nagar which has mediocre service for the price it charged. Lotus apartment was good change from the hotel. Rooms were clean and well managed. Break fast was decent. Wi-fi was slow but reasonable. Would recommend stay for business and personal tour. Hotel is a kilometer away from Pondy bazaar and little more for T nagar.

Room Tip: Choose top floor rooms.

Stayed here again for three day with my girlfriends and we were happy with the reception and the fast check in . The room were clean and breakfast was good . Staying here we felt safe as all of us were ladies and the people were kind and caring. The airport drop off was on time as not many taxi will arrive as early as 430am . The staff were very effective ESP mr Srinivas who help book my room many months ago. We enjoy our stay very much...

Room Tip: We love the 1st floor.... Corner rooms .

Stayed 2 weeks in this hotel on business trip. First, I got hotel room where wifi connection was very poor, mostly not available. After few days of raising this issue manager agreed to move me to another room.

Breakfast is purely Indian, basically no western options. Corn flakes are some cheap stuff so the don't taste like corn flakes.

Nice bathrooms, comfortable stay and quality reflects price.

We ended up staying here for over a month while looking for an apartment in Chennai and had a room with separate lounge and kitchenette. The room was really clean and spacious and airy with good wifi access.
We loved our cleaner she was very thorough, however I had to stop her some days from changing the bedsheets, which she tried to do every day. Not her fault but the hotels idea of best service.
Room service was great which I used a lot for dinner, however did get some weird phone calls from the switchboard man asking if I had enjoyed my dinner, if I wanted a milkshake, if I could get him a job....luckily we found a flat (we'd been there too long....).

Excellent location close to T Nagar. The service apartments are nice and decor is very well done. The location is ideal for business travellers! The complementary breakfast in the morning was nice as well. Wi-fi facility adds to value. Absolutely recommended!!

I travel to Chennai practically every week and have stayed at a large number of hotels and guest houses in the T-Nagar and Nungambakkam areas. Lotus Serviced Apartments in Burkit Road is definitely one of the better options.

I have stayed there twice - both times I found the rooms to be large, clean and well-appointed. In fact, the rooms resemble hotel rooms more than serviced apartment rooms. The bathrooms are clean and reasonably well-appointed, though the availability of toiletries can improve.

I have not tried their room service. The buffet breakfast in the morning is limited but adequate. The staff seems friendly, polite and reasonably efficient.

The best part is the location. There are cheaper and more value for money options available in the vicinity, but Lotus has got the trade-off between price and qualities right, in my opinion.
