Stayed in the Meridien Chennai for two nights. Lobby ok. Exterior of the hotel - hmm - tatty to name it (example: when the walls were painted the contractors obviously did not know about adhesive tape to protect the window frames from colour spots).
The room was old and smelly. Furniture was used up almost completely, electrical insulation from the 1970ies, old TV and the room was not really clean.
The breakfast was average to poor - the service was bad. The cook forgot my order on all two occasions. Orange juice was available only in Tetra packs - not fresh. The staff was ripping the plates off the table before you could empty your mouth. Not a great esperience.
The discounted rate was EURO 270 for two nights including tax. Don`t forget the tax in India. This has always been an issue when discussing room rates.
Final verdict: Not a 5-star place. Not at all.
