I stayed at the lakshmi nest on a business trip to Chennai. It is a very nice and comfortable place.Service is simple and prompt. True value for money. Located in the residential area it has a homely feeling

We stayed at Laxmi Nest for three nights during my visit to Chennai this past January. The room was very clean and modern. It was very comfortable with auto-controlled A/C and free wi-fi access. The management was very friendly and went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable. Daily breakfast (which was included) was great - a different item each day.
I would definitely stay here again!

We stayed at the Lakshmi Nest for a day on our visit to Chennai for a friend's wedding. Ashwin, who helped us with the booking and is also part of the management took very special care to understand our needs (we needed a late check-in and check-out) and ensured that the same was well communicated to the font desk staff.
The property itself is located in a posh locality and part of a quiet yet convenient neighbourhood. The rooms are quite small (the shelves in the bathroom protrude dangerously closely), but extremely clean, staff were helpful, but not very conversant - we found our way using google maps and tips from friendly neighbours.The complimentary breakfast offered is the meagre to say the least, and should last your batteries till noon at best.
For the sheer friendly service and location convenience, this poperty is highly recommended.

Room Tip: I'd prefer to avoid the rooms adjoining the dining area

I stayed with my husband for a day here as I had an exam in a close-by locality.

The good points first: Neat and Clean rooms in a decent locality.

The improvement points:
The staff were not at all flexible even to our slightest demands. Eg: I had to start for my exam at 8.30AM in the morning and requested the previous night itself if they could serve me the complimentary breakfast at 8.00AM. To my surprise in the morning, the staff refused to even serve me a cup of tea even though they had tea and breakfast ready in the kitchen at 8AM. In all tension, We had to hunt for another restaurant for breakfast.

My husband got irritated and complained about this to the lady in the front desk at the time of Check-Out. But he was surprised when she gave a stern reply that "We have our own rules and regulations and we want our staff and customers to follow it. I would fire the staff if he breaks our rules". Her reply kind of gave us a shock.

For whatever money paid, every customer expects some politeness and flexibility. They mean a lot more than other amenities a stay can offer.

Was looking for a very decent, no frills, place near to IIT Chennai to stay with family, and located.
Lakshmi Nest on the internet. Followed up by having a local friend check it out.
It is located in an independant building in a very quiet residential area of Adyar, just behind the main road. Shopping is walking distance and IIT is within 2 kms.

We stayed in Room 5. The room and bathroom were exceptionally neat and clean.The linen was absolutely good.Room had a split A/c, TV, Coffeemaker and mini frige.We were told we had access to a common microwave oven.
A common dining room served excellent basic south indian complimentary breakfast.Apart from this there are no food arrangements..
The standby generator was a boon what with frequent power cuts.
Each floor has a very alert, helpful attendant. Given 30 minutes notice he can fetch food from a number of resturants nearby. An outlet of Grand Sweets is on the same road.
Excellent place for a safe, peaceful, homely stay with family.
They had some trouble with the website, which shd have been sorted out by now.
Have suggested to Management to have a common washing machine.

Lakshmi Nest is a service apartment at quite lane in Chennai and makes you feel out of city. This is a place with no frills and with cleanliness and hygine. You can only expect an average breakfast and so would I rate the staff friendliness. It is worth to stay if you are ready to shell off a little more than what you get as value.

Net Net it is not a value for money that you spent but still a good place to stay in if you are OK to compromise atleast 1K of basic price.

Room Tip: Not known, but is in the heart of city so preffered.
