“Awesome place - truly a home away from home :)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

"Step in" are beautiful, cosy hotel apartments apt for both personal and business travel. Truly a home away from home. The ambience is great. The staff is friendly and nice. The sunrise and sunset from the terrace garden is a breathtaking experience. Location is central to most places in Chennai. The room with a view of the ocean is lovely. Highly recommend this place to each one who wants to have a fun filled time in Chennai...try it ...what are you waiting for ...book it, check in and have fun :)

Had stayed for two days, has an excellent roof top view of the city. Rooms are large. Bed is very comfortable, quiet & peaceful from the city noise. All the nitty gritties of service and expectations are taken care of. Management and staff are helpful and accommodates your requests. Getting there and finding the building would be a challenge. First hand experience while entering the building could be a shocker like most of the residential buildings for NRIs and foreigners but once on the 7th floor of step inn serviced apartments, you will find yourself in a different world and place. Overall worth every penny of stay there. Kudos to the staff and management to make you feel at home. Like the management put it consider it as "a hotel in your home"

My wife and I stayed here for two months and very much enjoyed the experience. Step Inn is a small, friendly guesthouse located seven floors up, away from the noise of the city. Rooms are clean, comfortable and air-conditioned. Ask for a room with a view of the ocean. The terrace is a relaxing place to spend evenings. Breakfast is South Indian (with very good chutneys) or Western (eggs as you like). The owner, Raj, is friendly and very accommodating. If you need to arrange a taxi or car with driver, he can help. Chennai can be hot and a bit hectic, so it's nice to have a place that is peaceful. Full marks to Step Inn.

Room Tip: Rooms on the ocean-facing side are quieter and have nice views.

For my fiancées bday, i took a day off and came here to step inn. Truly an excellent place to relax... truly an awesome retreat from the stresses of city... And yes, it looks exactly like the photos. I really have to thank the staff for making all the arrangements i requested for. Every request of mine was full-filled beyond my expectations and perfectly on time.

Thank you again Mr.Sahil. Was a memorable day for both of us...

Ive stayed at the Step Inn for 3 weeks in February/ March 2013, so you can say it has almost become a home. The hotel is super hard to find at first and the driver who brought me had a hard time finding the place at all. It is easier if you note down the junction of the main roads to find the place or if you know that it is right opposite to Raj Palace (another hotel in the area). There are no hotel/ apartment signs at the ground floor because the staff doesnt want random walk-ins. The rooms are on the 7th floor and super nice. I had such a beautiful room, I saw the river from it, I saw the sunrise every morning. The rooms are clean, water is included, the bathrooms are spotless and new. Everything is modern and very nice. Breakfast are two options, an Indian breakfast with vada and idlies (and sometimes dosa or something else) or another option with toast and eggs and jam. I didnt like the jam that much that they offered and they could have a masala chai tea as an option, but these are the only two things ne can complain about because the breakfast otherwise is excellent. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Because I stayed so long i also did some of my laundry there which was taken care of. Some of my clothing items slightly had a changed color when i got them back so be careful. Other than that i was very happy with the services offered. I would definitely stay at that place again.

Room Tip: The room facing the east is the most beautiful i think. u see the sunrise too!!!

We stayed there twice. It's a bit hard to find if you don't know where it is, as it is the top floor of a residential high-rise and I haven't seen any sign on the building. Better ask the hotel to send a taxi to pick you up somewhere. As soon as you come out of the small elevator though, you have arrived at a little oasis. The rooms are large, clean, with modern bathrooms and the staff is very helpful and friendly. Breakfast was good and served in a little room next to the roof garden. Amazing value. I hope to be back.
