“Good OLD charm!!”
Reviewed November 9, 2012 via mobile

The staff are wonderful but the hotel is very old and tired. I actually think they are renovating. The food is good and the bar is very handy.

Stay somewhere else until the renovation of the rooms are complete.

The Taj Coromandel was very welcoming to me. The room had a good size window to curl up and watch a heavy rainshower. The fitness area was well attended to but seemed a little small. The southern india cuisine restaurant in the property was the highlight of my stay. The staff were so nice and attentive, making my dining alone experience an unexpected treat.

This is a fantastic hotel. The hotel has refurbished most of its rooms and they are great. Extremely comfortable.
The hotel staff are attentive and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. There were just so many nice touches that you just dont expect which make you smile after a long day that make this hotel and its staff amongst the best and most welcoming you can find. e.g. a twisted towel made to look like a monkey, or your shoes polished and left in foot bags - the list goes on!!!
Hotel staff - keep up the good work
Potential guests - make sure you book this hotel, you wont be dissapointed.

The Coromandel is Taj’s showpiece hotel in central Chennai. It’s an old tower style building, and not the most exciting to look at, but once inside, you are definitely in the world of Taj hotels. The welcome is huge and spacious, and the staff attentive.

The rooms are decent, and though they offer no great view, well hardly any building does in the city, there is a nice seating arrangement by the window, just in case you want to curl up with a book or earphones. The in room facilites are typically Taj – perfectly satisfactory, in great condition, and bordering on the indulgent. Great natural lighting, nice long table for gadgets, a cozy round table set, spacious, well stocked washrooms, a soothing purple/ mauve colour combo for the bed – all good.

The restaurants, and there are about four options, all looked inviting. Lunch and dinner at the renovated Southern Spice was just amazingly diverse and each individual dish, recipe sourced from one of the four southern states, will lead you to indulge far more than what the good doctor will advise. But these are meals you cant miss – served in actual gold and silver plates, and accompanied by so many delicious options, it is something you must try. Breakfast at Anise was good too, the buffet standard five star fare. The bar, Chipstead is a little fancy, so prepared for a not entirely casual evening.

The pool, spa, gym, were all of a decent standard, though possibly not spectacular. The club area is more noteworthy, and Chambers members would do well to keep some time for it. There is a nice Taj Khazana in the hotel, check out for some nice crafts and pickles. The hotel is undergoing renovation in parts, so some areas of the hotel may not be accessible at the moment. However your stay otherwise, the stay should help you relax.

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.

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.
