Samudra Residency
Reviewed November 3, 2013

Stayed here for a night only. We had booked two non ac rooms. Rooms were clean and bed was also nice. However, the rooms were a bit small in size. If the stay is short, would definitely recommend this hotel. Its very close to Chennai Central Railway station.

The hotel is located hardly 500 mts from the central station chennai. As the hotel is situated on one way from station so no auto or taxi goes to the hotel. you have to take a cicutious route to reach the hotel by auto. If you have luggage you have to take a cycle rickshaw which takes Rs.40/- to Rs.50/- for 0.50 km. Rooms & toilet are small but clean. You find small coacroaches in your bed. Hot water is not available in the toilet. You have to order for it and it takes at least 15 to 20 miniutes. Reasonable good restaurants are very near to the hotel. The person at the reception was very helpfull. You can get an auto even at 4 o clock in the morning. The plus point is that it is very cheap(1000/- for an a/c room) and near to station (both main & subarban).

Room Tip: reasonable family & well located hotel.

The Samudra Residency is a very basic hotel with AC rooms. The amenities in the hotel includes a good bed without bed bugs, a cupboard, a tv, and attached bathroom with western fittings. The major plus point is its very near Chennai Central Railway Station. Its also moderately clean though you'll find cockroaches moving here and there. There is windows that mostly point towards some other rooms wall very close , hence you can call the rooms almost windowless except the ac shaft. One con is the hotel is bit hard to find as its not on the main road but inside a lane. But the staff is helpful. Recommended for staying a short while in Chennai. I say only men because I didn't see a single female staying here.

Summary:-

Pros:
1. Location
2. Service
3. 24x7 availability of some staff
4. comfortable beds
5. AC
6. More or less clean room and toilet
Cons:
1. Overall comfort is low, its not atypical luxury hotel
2. No food availability, not even tea
3. Cockroaches
4. Hard to find if you don't know exactly where it is , specially if you don't speak tamil
5. Water's not that good
6. Bit overpriced, basic rooms comes at 1500 INR almost

Good budget hotel with decent facilities. As i informed earlier about my late check-in at 10 pm I was received by the hotel staff and within no time room was alloted. It's very satisfying stay and good service by hotel staff.
