“You get what you pay for”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2013

There's not a lot you can expect from a hotel when they charge less than a third of what business hotels in the heart of Chennai do.

Good:
1. Location - proximity to US consulate and restaurants
2. AC worked
3. Staff very courteous and prompt in service

Bad:
1. Rock solid bed
2. Dirty towels. Carry yours if you travel here.

Overall, an OK place to stay if you're employer is paying for your trip and they want you to be austere, and when you'd be spending most of your time outside the hotel. Wouldn't recommend for personal visits to the city.

Planet mount is a decent hotel. Rooms are not spacious (Single and double rooms) but clean enough. A good hotel for business travellers. I have stayed here twice. No big complaints except that once it took lot of time for them to repair the A/C, which wasn't working. Not much can be said about the restaurant but no complains as there is a good restaurant nearer to the hotel.

It must be said, though the location is a good one (on the busy Mount road at Teynampet Signal) (Anna salai) it could be noisy if you stay in non A/C rooms. Screeching vehicles and Ambulances will keep disturbing your sleep.

Room Tip: Avoid non A/C rooms especially located on the side of Mount road.

centrally located acessible to airport and railway station.

Frontoffice, rooms and services are better compared to the tarrif offered... Rooms were clean and hygenic. Staff were coperative and treated us well. Most importantly most of the staff were from nothern part of India and were able to understand Hindi since Tamil was a foreign language for us.
The food was not that ok with limited option for breakfast. But idli sambhar and poori sabzi they served were only better. Dont think of oderning any lunch or dinner from the hotel since they have same gravy for all vegetables..

I stayed at hotel planet for the more than 6 weeks and a price of 1600 plus taxes for a a deluxe room it was quite reasonable. Good for business travel with with tight budget.

We stayed in a delux room. There was total deterioration in the services at this property since my last visit. The staff were intolerable, arrogant and non-cooperative. The generator did not function during power cuts. We could not sleep at night daily because of the power cuts. The hotel says that their generator was not working. Power cuts in Chennai and in Tamil Nadu are very long nowadays stretching to 12 hours/day atimes. So, a hotel that does not have a generator to run the power in the room including the AC is unfit for staty.The AC did not work and went on tripping. There was no water in the bath room. The taps were leaking. The western toilet was stained. The food from the so called attached restaurant was useless.Room service was non-existent. Reception was of no use. Travel desk was non-existent. A hotel to avoid.

I stayed in the hotel for quite a long as I was undergoing treatment at the Apollo hospital.
Its walk-able distance from the hospital.
I experienced a HOMELY stay in the hotel.
I was glad that I was helped thrice even at 3.00 hrs early morning..
I have to suggest one stay in Chennai for anyone, I would recommend HOTEL PLANET MOUNT 1000 times as it is unique with its cleanliness and safety..
One should have no better choice of hotels in Chennai for rooms under 1500 INR.

Room Tip: Its better to go with 2nd floor and third floor

A hotel located on the busy Mount Road. It is centrally located with major shopping centres nearby as well as restaurants. I stayed there in the deluxe room for a day. The room was comfortable with an efficient working of the AC. The ambience was very good. The bed was comfortable with clean and neat sheets and linen. The toilet was small but very neat and clean. The room service was efficient. The food served from the attached restaurant was not very good. Coffee/tea maker is not provided. It is better to outsource drinking water from outside. Travel desk was outsourced and a bit undependable. The room did not have a balcony but had an outside view. There is a petrol pump nearby. Atimes smell of petrol and diesel penetrates the room. The generator facility was very helpful during the power cut that is now regular in Chennai. The staffs in the reception were cordial and helpful.

Room Tip: Pick a room away from the petrol pump side
