If you like lobbies then look no further; upon walking into this hotel, seeing the lobby, I thought, this is going to be a great stay! The lobby is a piece of work! However, it ends there; upon entering my room, I stepped into another world; the room being small, depressing and grubby. I asked to see a few more,...

Hotel Shelter, located very near to the temples of Mylapore is easy to locate identify and has a good parking space. I stayed here for a day. The rooms are quite good and the service is fine. Not much of greatness nor dullness. Good for a quick and short stay. Food is ok here but there are numerous restaurants offering...

We had stayed in Shelter Hotel for 2 nights during our trip to Chennai. The hotel is located in a crowded street in Mylapore but we had chosen this since it was close to tourist attractions like Kapileshwar temple, Sai Baba temple, Ramkrishna Mutt, Marina beach, Saint Thomas church, Vivekananda House etc. We liked the spacious lobby and interior of...

Rooms are good you will not be complaining about it. Ac could have been more effective in terms of cooling but its good. Food is one thing for which you will be waiting specially morning breakfasts. Room service is also good.

We had a business trip to chennai and actually booked this hotel from the airport just before boarding the flight. Reached the hotel past midnight, and was simply surprised when I entered the room. For the amount which we paid, it was par excellent. Clean Bathrooms, smal room, but very comfortable.

The best hotel, I had ever stayed. Very polite service. The lighting arrangement in the pasage need urgent improvement. Value for money. The cost for extra bed is very high. This was 50% of the room ren. To be rationalised by the hotel authorities.

Good Hotel, Well maintained rooms, and Nice breakfast. Neat and clean. A/c was good.Parking was okay. Very courteous staff. But the location seems to be a very busy area, should avoid staying there on Thursdays, since the Hotel is just opposite to Sai Baba temple and will be flooded with devotees it was learnt. Very near to Mylapore Temple. Overall...

I booked this hotel and paid full at Agoda website a few days before I departed to Chennai. I reached the Hotel at night close to 12am and the staff informed that he did not receive the booking at all and there was no room available at that time. We were suggested to stay in with other guests, but we...
