Sona's Inn in one of hotels near by the US consulate in Chennai and that is the USP of this hotel. I had gone through some reviews of this hotel before my arrival there and most of them were negative from reasons ranging from cleanliness issues to trouble with the facilities offered so I went there with great apprehensions.

Rooms were not clean even the bed sheets where having dirt when I checked in and no staff was co operative. The whole service was worst. I won't recommend this hotel for anyone. Don't believe in this photos of rooms. It is nowhere similar to actual rooms.

this is near the US embassy and a good option for visa interview. The room and facilities are average and good for just a day stay. Even though the US embassy is walkable distance from here it is little difficult to cross the flyover.

One of the worst hotels I have come across. My company booked me here thinking it is 3 star but it is not even 2 star. When you enter the hotel, it smells. The rooms are smelly too. The toilet commode was leaking and I had to change rooms. Overall a very substandard hotel.

We stayed here twice for my US Visa Stamping. The rooms and facilities are good value for money I paid. It is near to US Consulate. It is far from the place where they take Finger Prints for US Visa. I hate taking an Auto in chennai as they are a total rip off (like in almost every other city).

Without my permission and absence House Keeping opened the door and done cleaning job. (NoteL There was No LOCKER available to keep my confidential things and belongings. Overall... More

As posted by several other reviewers, I stayed in this hotel as it was close to the US consulate office in Chennai. Rooms are clean, bathroom is average in terms of cleanliness and food was terrible (breakfast). Stale juice which was clearly had gone sour was served to us. Room service is also pretty average. Overall, as the title says..I... More

Hotel is at a very prominent location just walkable distance from us consulate. That is the only good thing I have noticed. Looks like it was one of the best hotel some time back and may be management is not much bothered on the maintenance now. Service is poor and infra is also in bad shape now. Like old tv,... More

I am usually a very easy customer at hotels. I do not ask for much as you would have observed from my previous reviews of hotels. However, the staff's handling of one incident today has really shocked me and I would request fellow travelers to be wary about staying at this place in the future for the same reasons. I... More
