We have decided to fly from Ahmedabad to Chennai by flight. We also decided to have a Taxi for our 11 days tour from Chennai to Trivandrum. Our flight was landed at 11 p.m. and we have booked the hotel online. They send a Taxi for complimentary transfer from Airport. Hotel is just a 1km From Airport and a nice... More

Had a bad experience with their restaurant as they had served pathetic food and their houskeeping had provided us with torn towels. They have charged as per a 3 star hotel but their service sucks!!! Only advantage is its close to the Airport else it's just a horrible place to stay.

PROPERT & FACILITIES My stay at this property was very brief as I had a long layover in Chennai before my flight to Bangkok. So I decided to book a room near to the airport where I could rest and catch up on sleep before my flight. The hotel is modern, with a small but inviting lobby. There is a... More

If you REALLY ,REALLY want to stay close to the airport ,have a very short stay in mind and don't mind a shabby room with average food then stay at Mahalaya Residency , else keep away. For the price charged this is one of the worst deals in Chennai. Plus points: pickup and drop at the airport. Just a short... More

I had booked this place for overnight stay. If one gets this place for a good price, this place is worth it as they have a airport pickup and drop facility which is ultra helpful-especially if the hours are odd. The place is maintained ok but the lift was smelling of cigarette but they say it is some other smell.... More

This was a nice decent hotel. Very good one for business travel to Chennai. Very close to the airport with free airport transfer. The hotel is a 24hr checkin property, any business traveler would love this. They were kind enough to offer complimentary breakfast on the day one itself as we had to leave for the airline next day early... More

The hotel is very near to the Airport. They have the facility of picking you and dropping you at the Chennai Airport. The service of the hotel is good. Food is also good. The rooms are neat and clean and bigger is size. Enjoyed my stay here on my way to Port Blair.

Neat, convenient, good service, good food. Very close to the Chennai airport, specifically the international terminal. They have a free pickup and drop from and to the airport. If you're looking for a convenient place to stay in between / before a flight, look no further.
