“Confortable, Clean...Value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2012

Was a good clean Hotel, room service was good, breakfast was good....little more items could have been better. Wi-fi was free, although didn't tried it. Main USP was being it's nearness to Chennai Central Railway Station, and city centre. Overall can stay there again.

Huge rooms, clean; Friendly staff; Great breakfast; Free wifi. All in all a great stay. Their housekeeping has to be better though - no shower caps in the room.

This is also very close to the Egmore station and it is a fantastic location. All in all, a great place to stay.

Started my trip to India in Chennai - without my baggage - didn't make the flight in HK! The staff particular Mr Thomas were fabulous - they arranged an Apple phone charger for me - no cost. Tracked down my bags and go them couriered from the airport - no cost - also go them cleared without me being there - amazing? Offered to bring in clothes for me to tide me over. Nothing was too much trouble. Food in the hotel was of very good quality - especially breakfast. The GM insisted I eat with him one night as his guest. After a stressful start my time in Chennai was just awesome. To finish off they arranged a airport transfer for me and had their rep meet me at the airport and take me to the steps of the plane. I am still amazed. We stayed in places throughout India that cost a bomb compared to this place and got half the service. Its a winner - good honest hospitality.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2012

Stayed for 2 nights when I went for an official trip.

A pure business hotel, does not cater for any kind of family trips.

Wi-fi is amazingly fast. The rooms are very spacious... good... The bathrooms are not well done up... Mostly old and requires a good renovation

The food was excellent. Must have gained weight during the period. The spread is a little spicy but enjoyed it. The breakfast was not very great.

When I checked in, I had intimated the time of check out. Had a problem at billing time, since the accounts dept comes in only at 1000h. I had asked for my bill to be ready by 0900h. I had to leave to catch a flight (takes about 45 min in traffic) by 1045. The duty manager very calmly asked me to wait for another one hour. That was quite bad on their part. Had to make a scene to get the bill and pay off and reach the airport with 5 min before the boarding gate closed.
Proximity to city centre is a good plus. Used fast track call taxi since the hotel taxi was a little overpriced.. most of the taxi drivers know the hotel as comfort inn and not as marina towers. If you decided to walk, go along the stinking canal from spencer plaxa, you will reach the hotel.. Luckily the stench does not come inside the hotel

Except for the billing part, it was a pleasant experience

The Hotel is located in Egmore, which is atleast an hour from the airport but the area itself is not bad. Not too far from places like Marina Beach etc as well.

The property itself is pretty nice and the in-house eating options are good also.

Rooms are pretty big but okay, nothing special but fair for the price. Wireless internet worked like a charm (complementary). Okay, reliable place for the business traveller, which is what most people coming to Egmore look for.

The staff are very hospitable and made us very welcome. The rooms are clean and modern/contemporary; and, as the other reviewers have mentioned, spacious. The food, including breakfast was good. For us, the location was OK as we were being picked up and dropped off by our tour coach. We only stayed one night, but I would have been happy to stay for longer.

The hotel is quiet far away from the airport, the only advantage is room is big and spacious, the bathroom is the most worst part as it was very dirty, the bedding was dirty, the service is poor, food is average,communication is very poor as the staff dont understand english properly.
