We had to make a one-day trip to Chennai for passport renewal at the US consulate. I was accompanied by my wife & 2 grown children. I was frustrated by the prices (Rs.2500+) I was seeing when I tried to search for hotels on the web. So, when I came across the website of Malles Manotaa, I was pleasantly surprised to see that they charged only about Rs.1600. And, there was no extra charge mentioned for my children. The reviews on TripAdvisor were uniformly good, so I decided to take the plunge and book a room.

Needless to say, I was expecting a cheesy, run-down joint with cockroaches with staff that spoke only Tamil. However, I was encouraged when I saw a new, brightly-colored building which looked quite sophisticated from the outside. Inside, at the reception, I was greeted in good English by the person at the reception. He was decently quick in finding us a room and had our luggage taken up. The room that met our eye was also a sight for sore eyes. Although it was small, it oozed of sophistication. The floors were very clean, the layout was quite good and everything was very well-organized and orderly.

The service turned out to be very good, too. The staff never said 'No' to anything. We asked for extra towels, soaps and shampoos, pillows, etc. and they were always willing and prompt to help. Although there was a king-sized bed, we decided to take the option of an extra bed so that the rest could sleep comfortably on the main bed. Here, for the extra bed, they provided only a mattress and a thin one at that. I think they could have provided a foldable bed of some sort.

Breakfast was included in the room rate, but it wasn't anything to write home about. There was upma, bonda and plenty of bread to go with butter and jam. The dining hall was small and understaffed.

They appeared to be understaffed, but they still did a fabulous job in keeping us satisfied.

Location is also quite good, in terms of convenience to important parts of Chennai. Shopping areas, US Consulate, Mount Road, etc. are less than 5km away, so if you don't mind being taken for a ride (literally!) by the auto drivers, then this is really an excellent hotel to stay in.

Stayed at Malles Manotaa for 2 nights with my wife in 07/09. The hotel goes under the name of 'serviced apartments' and, as it is fairly new, guests should anticipate some trouble trying to find it initially. We stayed in a 'studio', (which wasn`t really a studio as it did not have a kitchennette) which was very clean but slightly cramped, with only just enough space to stick a double bed, a wardrobe and a couple of bedside tables in. However, the room was extremely clean and the furnishings new. The room even had a wall mounted LCD tv (nice touch but I suspect part of the reason is that there was nowhere to put a CRT telly in the room!). The bathroom was of an average size but very clean. We found the room adequate but the for those who need a bit more space, the hotel has a fair few categories of rooms (I think they are called 'apartments'). The hotel does not have a restaurant but does operate a kitchen so guests can order food off a menu provided in the room.

The staff at the hotel were extremely helpful but it looked like they had too many staff ( we saw someone new everytime we rang for something). The location of the hotel is excellent (around half an hour both from the airport (Rs 250) and the train station (Rs 150) by taxi). For those interested in shopping, it is also close to T Nagar, the main shopping district of Chennai.

On the whole, I give the hotel 5 stars based proximity to transport, the attitude of staff and the decent quality of rooms for the pittance ( £ 15 per night) I paid, compared to other hotels in Chennai..

This place is good and not over priced. The staff were polite and the rooms were very nice and clean. The interior was well done too. On the whole it was great staying there and great value for money. I will be staying there again next month and may be for years to come.
