“Lloyd's Guest House”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

I landed around 3 :30 PM Saturday 6th July to witness what could be a blazing sun in Chennai, but luckily it was quite satisfying climate. Later I boarded the Lloyd's hotel in royapettah around 4:30 PM which i had booked through clear trip. Even though, climate was quite good but still it was humid and i was eagerly waiting to get in to showers. The first and foremost thing that each one of us will look when we travel outside is bathroom, so am no new to that. It was very well maintained with separate geyser. so the next thing is Food, as it was almost 6 PM i was very hungry, so i just called up reception, luckily hotel had some contract / arrangements with nearby hotel, so they brought the food to the room in which i was staying. Now that i had good enough food next is to lay-back for a while. The Bed had no clutter as it was very well designed. Overall i must say it's very well maintained hotel and value for money. i definitely recommend this hotel.

Clean, simple Hotel near the Marina Beach. many Restaurants and such close by. Staff partly very kind and helpful, partly grudy. No Restaurant or Bar inside. No Wifi or Internet availahle but a couple of Internet- Cafes nearby. Reasonably priced. There are 3 branches. Carefully notice the dress when booking online. I would stay there adain. Felt safe.

Stayed here for two days during my recent visit to Chennai. No frills place, simple, clean and well connected. The Consulate is a decent walk away. And VFS office is not far too. Rooms are neat and A/C works great. I did find few roaches but dint really bother me. Bathroom was clean and functional. Overall, had a pleasant stay and would definitely recommend to friends and family visiting Chennai for a day or two.

Extremely conveniently located just behind the Music Academy.

Among locations that are very conveniently accessible from here are Mount Road, T Nagar, Marina Beach, Alwarpet, Nungambakkam, Poes Garden, Royapetta .. so literally a central place in case you are interested in the Cathedral Road / Mount Road zone

The rooms are good but basic, cleanliness is a plus. Food is available if required .. the staff offer to procure from the many eating joints nearby

Sleep quality is good .. the ACs are competent, the bed and the linen are comfortable

The one point of caution is to ensure and double check the reservation ... I have had a shocker of a confirmed reservation being lost once .. as I arrived at 11 PM at night from Gurgaon .. this is primarily because the requests are checked manually from a manual "day-room-occupancy" register & then confirmations are written down in a scribble pad to be moved to the manual "day-room-occupancy" register later and thus are open to mistakes. Thankfully, they could find an alternate room for me that night.

The rooms are very neat & clean. The staff were very helpful beyond the language barrier. I have stayed in many other hotels in Chennai but none like them. They could become a star hotel if they start providing the food in house.
The stay was very comfortable overall.

Room Tip: Corner rooms will be lively with the hustle & bustle of the outside. The inner rooms are for the...
