“First experience of service apartment at Chennai”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

I had been to a professional conference and arrangements of stay were made by hosts at this place. It appeared to be a residential building, but internal arrangement was like hotel.
Good place for short stay and was near the conference venue. The room had single bed with all necessary requirements viz: wardrobe, good no. of lights, split A.C, TV, and a very good toilet with soap, towels, bath mat etc. Did not try breakfast of food and menu appeared to be costly. The cost was not comparable with hotels where rooms are bigger with more services and amenities, but felt was high. Waiting to see other service apartments as not seen so far.

Good value for money. Definately would recommend this place to anyone. Much better than other hotels in Chennai. I was a lone, female traveller and felt safe. Good for short business trip or transit. Good airport pick up and drop (they charge for this service). Clean rooms and bathrooms well appointed, AC, mineral water, newspaper, tea, coffee and kettle. Efficient reception namely Jagdish very polite. Ask for a discount when you book.

Breakfast suggestions are - more variety of tea for example herbal teas or earl grey. Filter coffee was much too strong. Room service restaurant food may be spicy ask for no chilli or less spice. Good vegetarian options and accomodating. Places to eat around are Palli Bazar around the corner about 10 minutes walk.

This is a Serviced Apartment of the GRT group which also has a full fledged hotel in T Nagar. We chose this Serviced Apartment mainly because of this. However, the experience was quite disappointing. To start with, it is not easy to locate the place - not because of its location but because of the way the Hotel staff try to direct you. The Reception desk is a complete waste of time. Be it a wake up call or arranging an auto for going to the Railway station - they have a way of messing up. The rooms are too basic for the price they charge. Though the TV is flat screen, they still have a poor cable service. The bathroom fittings are still quite rusty and the water pressure in the bathroom is quite slow. We just didn't have hot water on both the days. The breakfast is quite a disaster. Since they serve only vegetarian food, don't expect even eggs. The only saving grace is the restaurant called Chennai - 24 next to it. We had lovely vegetarian food which is very typical of Tamilnadu.

Modern hotel, conveniently located near the main market and not to far from T Nagar bus stand. Quiet location which is good given the noise in Chennai.
The room was very clean, spacious enough and recently redecorated.
The buffet breakfast (vegetarian) has a fair selection.

Not easy to find though. We arrived late at night and the taxi driver had to turn several time around before finding it.

I traveled to chennai to attend a family function and while searching in the net I found "The Lotus" as associate to GRT, I stayed previously with GRT in Yercaud, it was a wonderful, expecting the same I booked 2 rooms. As expected everything is good. Right from reception people to service guys all are good and has enough knowledge on what they are doing. I am happy and I next time, no need for searching.

I have been travelling to Chennai since a couple of years but somehow could never find the perfect place to stay. This time my friend suggested Lotus Serviced Apartments and I was really impressed. Great Value for Money. The best part are the excellent rooms they have. Service is good and centrally located. For me it will now be a permanent place to stay whenever I visit Chennai.
