T. Nagar
The bustling shopping district of Chennai, T. Nagar is a junction of packed streets that attracts locals and tourists alike, especially during the wedding and festive seasons. Home to multi-storeyed stores selling the most colourful and latest designs of saris, gold jewellery and narrow lanes with regular everyday shopping bargains especially on Ranganathan Street and Pondy Bazaar, it is one of the liveliest market places in the city. Just a stroll around the place dotted with street food stalls and eateries offering traditional South Indian meals is good enough to capture the life at T. Nagar and you will surely be tempted to buy something that you might not have planned to. Most of the residential bungalows were built in art-deco style and till today, have been maintained well on G.N.Chetty Road.

We stayed for 2 nights full board in this very pleasant, centrally located hotel in Chennai. Although fairly basic, the room and bedding were spotlessly clean and comfortable with good air conditioning and a nice on-suite bathroom. All staff in the hotel were very pleasant...More

Their checkout policy is 24 hours. Speak to the front counter for free extension for 1-2 hours. They are very kind and understanding.
