This hotel is just a few minutes from the airport. It is a very good place to spend the night if you have an early morning flight. They pick you up at the airport and deliver you there as part of the price of the room. This is a very simple hotel, not a western "chain" hotel, but it does...

The accommodation was clean, good value for money and readily accessible from the airport. We arrived during demonetisation and just after the cyclonne had hit, so not only was the city in the throes of struggling with availability of cash, but a lot of the IT infrastruction was down, which meant some of the ATMs and phones lines were out...

I have been to this hotel for about 4 or 5 times. This residency is perfect for people who have urgent flights because, it is so close to the airport. There are many other nice stuff to tell about this hotel. Very good one!!

I booked Mahalaya as I was arriving very late from airport, horrified to find no ATM working at airport and since discovered they don't take foreign cards at the moment anyway. The taxi desk changed 20 euros for me (gave me old currency, thanks for nothing) and I got to hotel at around 2a.m. Lovely Indian breakfast next morning and...

Good for a quick transit stay simple accommodations with excellent staff. Breakfast is home style in good quantity. Best is pickup and drop to airport which is done efficiently in a very timely fashion.

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...

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...
