I stayed in this hotel in month of March for 2 days during my official visit to Chennai. I got a very good deal from goibibi. Biggest advantage of this hotel is its just 2 km from Chennai international airport, 5 min walking distance from pallavaram railway station and right on the highway. They will provide u free pick up... More

Rooms are filthy and goes well with the beautiful dumping view from the hotel. Zero facility provided and misleads all the facilities which they confirm to provide. They didn't even have morning tea to serve, very poor customer service as they don't even understand the customer requirement. No water heater, no fan, AC is almost 20 years old and does... More

The rooms are more like dungeons with practically no means of getting sunlight from any angle. Internal lighting is such that about 60% of the room does not get any light. The seat of the sit down toilet is fixed with concrete probably since the management though it safer to do it that way than replace the plastic/ceramic parts. The... More

It was a long and tiring day and we just need a place to crash. Mars was a good hotel to spend the night before we caught the early morning flight to kolkata. They have a nice restaurant on the property that serves Afghani food.

This is a hotel that can be used only as a Budget Transit hotel if you need to stay for a night near the airport. The deluxe rooms are good. Do not expect very high standards. Bed was comfortable but the bath towel etc were not up to the mark. Water heater was working. The room I got was recently... More

Warning to anyone thinking of using this hotel!!!! -- it is of very poor quality. Room was filthy, we needed to ask for bed sheets to be changed as dirty and toilet was broken and did not flush. The back of the hotel resembled a rubbish tip.-- You have been warned --

Had to stay a week in Chennai and this hotel was so disgusting (booked because it was near to airport) that had to move after 2nd night only. Booked a non-AC room (it was costly for budget) which was so small one can smell washroom while being on bed. Got to open window in midnight due to that. Room service... More

It's good enough for an overnight stay and if you want to catch an early morning flight. It's strictly for business travellers as families won't like the petrol pump adjacent to the hotel and there are no good eating options nearby
