Was looking for a very decent, no frills, place near to IIT Chennai to stay with family, and located.
Lakshmi Nest on the internet. Followed up by having a local friend check it out.
It is located in an independant building in a very quiet residential area of Adyar, just behind the main road. Shopping is walking distance and IIT is within 2 kms.
We stayed in Room 5. The room and bathroom were exceptionally neat and clean.The linen was absolutely good.Room had a split A/c, TV, Coffeemaker and mini frige.We were told we had access to a common microwave oven.
A common dining room served excellent basic south indian complimentary breakfast.Apart from this there are no food arrangements..
The standby generator was a boon what with frequent power cuts.
Each floor has a very alert, helpful attendant. Given 30 minutes notice he can fetch food from a number of resturants nearby. An outlet of Grand Sweets is on the same road.
Excellent place for a safe, peaceful, homely stay with family.
They had some trouble with the website, which shd have been sorted out by now.
Have suggested to Management to have a common washing machine.
