Taj Coromandel Chennai
Ranked #4 of 437 Hotels in Chennai (Madras)
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 27, 2012

The Taj is always distinctive and so is this one. All old world style, the lobby reflects that it is in India ( a relief or a change from the glass and chrome?). The welcome was good and very fast check-in: They have in-room check-ins. Very comfortable room. Had buffet breakfast the next morning and it was very good. Good variety. Was on a working stay for one night , wish I could have stayed longer. Did not sample the other restaurants.Recommend this hotel for: Centrally located near the Main Road of Chennai (Anna Salai), very peaceful and quiet even in the heart of the city, great atmosphere, good food,great service.

Room Tip: The hotel seems quiet overall.

Had a great experience staying at Taj Coro Chennai. Entire staff was very courtious and helpful. Service (laundry, coffee, food etc.)nwas extremely fast. Food including breakfast was nice. Local food was great to enjoy.The bedroom and bathroom was specious and clean at all times. The cab service is also available and can be arranged fast upon request. I highly recommend this hotel for everyone and for every purpose.

Maybe it's me, but I found this hotel overpriced for what it offered. The rooms were TINY, although very nicely appointed. The bathroom was spacious and had everything one could want. I ate in the coffee shop off the lobby and the food there was superb. The health club facilities had everything one would expect. I found the service over-bearing. They were constantly second guessing my stated desires and trying to sell-me up. I really don't appreciate that in a hotel, especially one at this price. Wish should equal command.

It is with great regret that I have give four and not five stars to this five star deluxe hotel. While the room was fantastic and service exceptional, other services were poor quality. By other services I mean hair dressers, massage services and the standard of food at this hotel. For instance both at the hairdressers and massage place, the standard of facilities were not worth even rating. It seemed like a roadside parlour. But therice was pf course five star deluxerices. This was disappointing as I had talked up this hotel. Breakfast was average too. Also, please control your concierges who look with expectant eyes for money every time. Do t we pay you enough room rate for you to pay these guys better, or at least ask them not to ask for money.
I was however very impressed with the way the too s were made and fresh flowers everyday.

Room Tip: The service at this hotel was fantastic. Perhaps before you book the room ask about spa and hairdres...

The most amazing thing is the location , staying there for 2 days and enjoyed the true Chennai food including an amazing lunch at Dakshin. Staff were co-operative and willing to make us understand different type of foods.

Golden Dragon at Taj Coromandel has been our favourite destination for Chinese food for the past 7 years, yet had a very poor experience when we dined there on 2nd September, 2012.We had placed our iPad on a stool provided by the servers while we dined.
Erroneously we missed picking it up while leaving.We realized this immediately on reaching home and contacted the Taj. They tried but could not locate the iPad.
How could the iPad be missed at the time of the setting up of table for the next guest.
There is no CCTV coverage of the exit/entry to the restaurant.
We were informed that a house guest was the only person with an iPad, yet the security did not bother to check the serial number of their iPad.Atleast this much due diligence is expected from a hotel of this repute.
V bad experience, no ownership of the hotel in our problem.
No guidance on how we can follow up this issue.
