Last week we had our baby shower function and very happy on choosing Iris. The banquet hall is really spacious with rich look which best suited for our occasion. They arranged special food for the function based on our requirement and it was served with utmost care. Special thanks to Mr.Dinesh who was helping his best to meet our needs and made our day memorable. Overall had an amazing experience. I would recommend this venue to make your event more memorable and looking forward to re-visit.

Good 3-star hotel, clean but rooms could do with sprucing up . However, staff were very friendly and enthusiastic, in particular Karthik (who always anticipated our every need). Good location relatively close to the centre, especially if you use a tuk-tuk.

Our group of 30 tourists recently had the pleasure of being hosted at the IRIS Hotel in Chennai. We were very comfortable at this venue. This hotel offers excellent value for money. The staff are excellent. If special me tin is Kartik, the bell boy, who went beyond his call of duty to make sure all our needs were met. The restaurant staff were also extremely obliging. I would like to highly recommend this hotel. I would also like to compliment the management for the excellent training afforded to the staff. Well done to all. Look forward to staying here again.

The room is not as you see in the pics. Rooms are cramped. nothing great about the stay. Ample shops around the hotel. Bathroom was clean & so was the room. Overpriced in my experience. The manager in the day was helpful.

My stay in Iris Hotel was not what I expected. The towels were filthy. The rooms were stuffy and bedding was damp. The breakfast only caters for locals and not foreigners. Bathroom was not up to standard. Will not recommend this hotel for the price we paid for.
