Location of the Hotel is it's USP. Its very close to the Airport. The Hotel is very good for the budget. Good cooperative staff & mangement.
I dont understand why people complain about the services. We cant expect 5* service from this budget Hotel. If you want such service pls book a 5* Hotel.

The service that these guys give is above what is expected from such Budget Hotels.

Would recommend this Hotel.

I stayed there 2 times with in a week. Both times I chose the the hotel for the location close to the airport. Rooms are good but bathroom should be cleaned properly, Front desk staffs are very good but restaurant staffs are not trained well. Break fast is not good, very minimal and same menu everyday. Bed comfort is great. If you have early morning or late night flight, you can stay in the hotel.

Myself, my family and my brother's family stayed at Hotel Mahalaya Residency Chennai one night during June 2012 while travelling from Mumbai to Port Blair. The hotel had good trip advisor ratings and was the only good hotel near to airport. They also provide air port pick up and drop at reasonable rates. As we were reaching Chennai during late evening and needed to catch the very early morning flight, this was the best option. The booking was done on telephone. The concerned lady staff was very courteous and they did not ask for advance payment. They only needed intimation of time of arrival and names of guests. We were duly picked up at Chennai airport. The hotel is decent and clean. Food was good. Staff were extremely cordial.
The lodging and boarding rates were a bit stiff for the ambience and facilities provided. Breakfast is compulsory in all room plans. Therefore the very early birds to leave in the morning miss out. One can perhaps pay this without remorse considering the decent and safe family ambience provided by this hotel

Next day morning, as promised, we were taken to airport at 4.00 am. The hotel has a small van where luggage transport becomes seamless. Overall I was happy though I sold out a lot of money for spending barely 7 hours at the hotel.

Room Tip: Best transit hotel for middle and upper middle class pockets near Chennai airport.

Very helpful staff, the bed is strangely very comfortable to sleep in, but the rest of the hotel needs improvement. Decor appears tired, probably mid 1990s style. Bathroom could be cleaner, the water doesn't seem to flow as freely as other hotels, and breakfast was mostly choice free. Great location close to the airport, ideal for those coming in on a late flight. The hotel provides a pickup service (300 rupees approx ), though punctuality could be improved and it would be nice if he was more visible among the hundreds of pickup service drivers.

The hotel is only 3 km from Chennai airport. Its most suitable if you are not planning to explore city and wanted to use it for the transit between two flights.
Restaurant in hotel is ok in terms of food though nothing special.
Rooms are clean and room service is ok. Front desk people are cooperative though with some of them you have to struggle a bit due to language.
The tariff is same for including or excluding breakfast. The breakfast starts at 07.30 AM, so if you have early morning flight then you can't have.
For pick up or drop from airport, they charge 200 INR in taxi.
