Several "Buts..." about this hotel. There is a Reception Desk, but... I wish the staff at the Reception were a little friendly and courteous. There is an elevator in the hotel, but it is switched off at night. And you have to walk up to the first floor to request the staff to turn it on for a while. They... More

The property has the absolute bare minimum with a price range that would give you a comfortable room in Chennai! Please note that there are two great advantages to this hotel. Absolutely stunning staff and the temple is a stone throwaway. The lights in the toilet are dim making it almost cave like. I suspect this is to mask the... More

Besides just the location that is very near to the temple. . A distant traveller is convenient in several ways staying there.. the staff was also very helpful in arranging everythin. Rooms were cosy. Property is basically in a market where one can experience the culture and cuisines of locals besides just visiting the temple. As it was totally different... More

I stayed here for 3 nights 25/28 January. It is a very simple Pilgrimage Residency situated next to the Temple. You enter the residency through their private parking place as the reception is on the first floor. I had a large room on the second floor. Was lucky to have two windows, one overlooked a wall the other over a... More

I stayed at the Simap with my father on the 2nd of Feb for 1 night. Greeted by Guham who gave us a complimentary room upgrade. The room and bathroom were clean. We were given good advice about visiting the temple and where to eat. There is no other hotel closer to the east entrance of the Meenakshi temple. As... More

We stayed here for one night in January. As all the reviewers mentioned, this hotel has the best location in the city for visiting the Meenakshi Amman Temple. The pedestrian-only area starts right beyond the hotel, so it's a fun and safe (no traffic!) area to explore. Our room was clean and comfortable with a great shower. The water is... More
