Hotel Planet Grande

Reviewed September 15, 2013

Checked-in at the hotel on 6th Sept. Rooms are ok. Staff is gud. But they knock at your door according to their own wish, even after I told them not to disturb. Gave cloths for washing and asked if can get those on urgent basis, since I had to check out at 8 am next day. Staff said that they could give it at max 11 am. I said OK. But wen next day i got the cloths, i found them totally wet. Called the staff and showed it to them.
At the time of check out, receptionist added the laundry charge in the bill. I told him that why shud I pay, because these cloths will give bad smell once I take them out from my bag after 6 hrs, since those were wet. He then called his boss. Boss came downstairs and discussed something with receptionist in their local language. And without even asking me wat happened, i was handed over the bill of laundry.
He should have asked me about the issue. But he was never bothered to ask. And when I objected, he straight away started shouting at me. When I said that with this kind of experience, i would never come to your hotel. He said, "dont come ever, but we will not let you go without paying ". He was very rude and used abusive words.
PLEASE AVOID this HOTEL. They want to earn money by foul means and cheating.

Room Tip: Dont even think of taking room in this terrible hotel with horrible manager

Located quite close to US and malaysian consulates. Good pricing for the accommodation provided. Efficiently run by a few folks from Kerala. At a walkable distance from both the OFC and Consulte, so visa applicants will find this really helpful.

Good for males travelling on a budget.

I stayed there with family, but my wife and child were not comfortable - the feel of the place.

If I have to stay there on my own ( w/o family ) will stay agaon - no problems, very good location, clean rooms, quick service, very competitive rates.

So yes go ahead and stay here as good value for money.

Room Tip: take the rooms away from the main road as that becomes very noisy

Don't expect a better location than Teynampet main Anna Salai next to courtyard Marriot
Tarifff is too high for the facilities but location more than compensates
don't expect to pay less than what they demand no matter what they promise over phone.
Better book through cleartrip,com who had a better offer for me on the site.

room was average - could have been better. But they clean it regularly and linen is again average (??) Some small insects were spotted on the rug which we avoided.
A/c was good. Hot water was from Solar tank ( no geyser in room)

The staff is very courteous and helpful. Service is prompt .A small vegetarian canteen is available just outside the hotel in the same building for tasty Madraasi snacks. Bus stop 0of MTC is just on the doorstep and so is the pedestrian subway for crossing the mighty Anna salai.

Room Tip: book rooms through website offers like cleartrip.com Go for Executive or higher category. Vegetar...

The hotel is located near to business areas and in central district. Basic hotel and facilities, but neat and clean rooms. No internet/wifi access or attached restaurant. However, one can eat in a next door south indian restaurant. Near to Ramee mall.

Good value for money.

Room Tip: Stay if you just need to spend a night.

This hotel is really great facility. Most competitive rates and at Anna Salai is considered to be center of Chennai . Hardly 13 kms from airport and on road . Ample transport facility and conveyance is available to any where.

For shopping T Road is v near and you van enjoy local delicacies with shopping.

Surrounded with shops , restaurants etc.Rooms are neat and clean followed by excellent service. Looking to the room rent and services its really value for money.

Room Tip: Rooms on Road side are better for view.
