“Fine hotel at Chennai”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

Went to Chennai for a business trip, fortunately selected Somerset Greenways to stay for two days. Rooms are fine with all facilities including kitchen setup. Bathroom was spacious with nice utilization of space. Food was a bit expensive but food quality was good. The hotel has a location near beach and away from city rush. Nice place to stay alone or with family.

I have stayed in the Somerset for two nights. It is a beautiful place and the people are very friendly and service oriented. I received a juice and a cold towel as welcoming gift at the reception desk. the rooms are huge and spotless and beautiful, with a fully equipped kitchen, a couch, a huge tv screen, etc... the bathroom shows some signs of aging, but is still great (i always wonder why there is no extra toilet paper as i always run out of toilet paper...). I very much enjoyed that there is also a washing machine in the room (and washing powder), so I could wash my clothes there which i thought was really convenient. The food at the restaurant is yummy and the restaurant manager is also very kind and helpful. The Somerset is a bit pricey, but if you can afford it it is a great place to stay.

We stayed here for five days in December 2012. We had a suite with bedroom, living area and kitchenette.
It was well-appointed, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was good as well. There are a couple of restaurants around the corner if you like to eat out. We did not try the in-house restaurant for dinner.
The only negative was something outside the hotel; the approach road can get quite dirty with uncollected garbage outside a crowded temple at the start of the road.
This place is a bit away from the center of the city. Find yourself some radio cab phone numbers so you can get around comfortably.
Make sure you get a room on a higher floor, to avoid noise from restaurant/disco at night.

There are well equipped apartments. Staff was extremely courteous. The rooms had all the devices including washing machines to a TV. Since I had a conference at the Leela Palace, this was at walking distance and a comparatively budget place.

We were visiting family in Chennai and decided to stay at a service apartment rather than staying with the family. Somerset ended up being a great choice for a variety of reasons - location was fantastic (very central), staff very attentive and facilities were top notch and upto international standards.
The one thing that was a bit strange was the night club near the lobby. Being a primarily a family accomodation, it was surprising to see a night club at the hotel. To be fair to the hotel, the presence of the night did not come in my way in any way.
The one downside was the food. The buffet breakfast is good but the room service menu was a let down.

Room Tip: Try to avoid lower floors as you could get noice from the night club

I stumbled across this when browsing on the net to find a place to stay which is clean and safe upto international standards. This certainly met my expectations. The rooms were well maintained and equipped [microwave, refrigerator, electric stove, washer/dryer, 32"HDTV]. The staff were quite friendly and responded well and quick to our needs. I wanted a space for my daughter to practice for a dance program and they provided an empty room throughout our stay for that. The free buffet breakfast and wi-fi was helpful. Roof top endless pool was nice and clean. The location had easy access to city center and they had a free shuttle daily to a mall closeby. I liked the place and actually returned back after I had to visit another city following my initial stay. There was a restaurant at site. There is a 'french loaf restaurant, a chinese restaurant and a kerala style restaurant[Ente Keralam] closeby. You have to take a taxi if you need to go to any other hotel or shopping areas. The school adjacent to the hotel can be noisy at the opening and closing hours. Avoid travel on that street during that time!
