“Just one night was too short”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

From the greeting onwards you couldn't have asked for more. I arrived after a long train journey from Mysore at 10pm at night. The hotel seeing how tired I was checked me in very quickly asked if they could organise dinner for me or do anything. When we went to my room I was even asked if they could make me a tea - wonderful service, just what you would expect from a Taj. I had one of the heritage suits and it was large and airy. There was a wonderful bowl of assorted fruits waiting for me which was all I felt like at that time of night. Breakfast was excellent and I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Chennai

It is a great place to stay and the location is also very central . There are many places to see in chennai and can be made possible from here. The location is lively and we can move out all the time as the road is always with traffic round the clock.

Room Tip: The rooms above the 5th floor are peaceful and quiet

I stayed at the Taj for 10 days. I can honestly say that I have never stayed in a nicer hotel. The service was impeccable. Th.e staff paid attention to the most minute details. My favorite items? The dining experiences within the hotel and the health club. I also enjoyed the room amenities such as the sound system and the incredible shower. I KNOW I will be staying at the Taj during my next visit to Chennai!

This hotel is pretty decent and would appear generally good, but not quite as good as the usual Taj standard. Its a fairly old property and has a classic feel to it. The bathrooms could do with some renovation though. Nice sizeable rooms.

Staff is generally polite and attentive, though on an earlier occasion I had a nightmare of a time trying to make a reservation, so much so, that I chose to book another hotel.

The Indian food is really good, they have got it exactly right.

Rates are reasonable.

Room Tip: go to a higher floor and get a good view of the city
