Hotel Himalaya Residency
Ranked #197 of 400 Hotels in Chennai (Madras)
Reviewed January 8, 2012

Apart from looking more shabby, I can see the place hasn't change since 1989.
I went to this hotel then because there was no room at a small place down the road that had trees growing through the building like something out of The Hobbit.

The Himalaya was a 'normal' place & quite a change to some of the truly unusual places I had stayed.

Room Tip: You're in India for Christ's sake. Live on your wits!

Centrally located walking distance from main shopping centers and the beach. Decent sized rooms with air-con and clean bathrooms. Ideal for those with tight budgets and seeking value for money. Front desk was helpful and were open even at wee hours of the morning.

Stayed in Oct 2011. Travelled alone

We felt comfortable in this hotel with friendly staff and clean but basic room. Great value and so central.

This place is fine for one night, its nothing special but it's not bad either.

Any more than one night and you should look for somewhere a little bit more hospitable.

Expect a bed, a pillow and a few mosquitoes and the guy at reception to have not brushed his teeth since birth and you won't be let down.

Stayed: August 2011, traveled with family

I came to this hotel after fleeing the Broadlands. While the hotel is definitely not luxury, it is a decent budget hotel. Rooms were of an average size and the sheets and bathroom were relatively clean. Front desk was relatively friendly and helpful. This is definitely a decent option in Chennai if you're on a budget.

Room Tip: Get an AC room-the heat in Chennai is insane.

Loved the hotel for its location. Very close to market and also quite close to the Beach. The rooms need some improvement. Also we expect the front office staff to be more courtious. But overall good stay. I recommend this hotel for people who want good stay for budget money
