“An extended airport lounge!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

An unexpected layover in Chennai forced me to check out hotels in the city. Was on a late eveninger from Kolkata en route to Kochi on boxing day. Tell you what..If you are in a situation similar to mine, this is a great place. Just a 5 minutes drive, the accessibility is very good. The property is well maintained though the decor can go in for an upgrade. Does have a home like feel. The staff are good, un-intrusive and helpful. They could however do with some polishing in their etiquette. The complimentary pickup and drop with wi-fi is definitely a plus though in my case I could not login a second time (technical glitch??). The complimentary breakfast does ensure that the total fare looks a bargain. Roughly Rs 2500 a night.

I stayed here overnight for a flight out of Chennai. The front desk clerk was mildly courteous but had us checked in quickly once he found the reservation. Please note that the elevator follows that the ground floor is floor #1 so press your floor button accordingly! The rooms was large and clean. No towels however. The website for the hotel touts 24-hr room service but when I called in around 2 AM (my children were jet lagged) I was told the kitchen was CLOSED. Because we left the hotel before the 7 AM breakfast I cannot comment on the food or service. Lastly, due to the close proximity to the airport there is quite a bit of noise pollution from jets flying overhead. Ultimately this is a good option for someone looking for a place to rest before a flight. Otherwise, don't expect too much.

If you need to stay overnight in Chennai between planes, this is a perfectly adequate hotel. he lighting in the room is a bit depressing and the bathroom was a little grubby around the edges but was basically clean and there was endless hot water in the morning. The free taxi pickup and delivery is a big bonus and in fact the pickup driver had to wait a long time for me for various reasons. The reception staff were friendly enough and the room service was fine -- they do a great fresh lime soda, mixed to your taste. The internet worked and getting the password was easy. It's true that, located near the airport, on a busy road AND near the railway, it is quite noisy -- but the breakfast buffet of local food was delicious.

I have stayed several times at this hotel during my trips to Chennai.. Best part is that this hotel is just 4-5 kms away from Airport.. Rooms are good with ample space.. washrooms are ok, but need a revamp..food is ok.. breakfast has varities of Chennai delicacies..Very affordable for business trevellers who travel frequently and need a budget hotel at a very reasonable price..Recommendable..

Recently, I had been to chennai, having landed in chennai at 11pm, I needed a place to rest for the night which would be close to the airport. I called up reception and booked my room in advance. Was pleasantly surprised to see hotel car waiting at the airport.
The hotel was soberly clean, room service was prompt. I asked for something to eat at night and was served bread omlette which felt heavenly as I was very hungry.
The only drawback which u can face here is the noise of planes landing frequently at night. Also keep few rupees as change as everyone desperately seeks for tips after each service. Overall, a good place to spend one night is u got a early morning flight to catch or u arrive late in the night.
