Flamingo
Reviewed August 22, 2013

We stayed for 4 days in August. Great location with good restaurants in the vicinity. Friendly and helpful staff. Rooms a bit small though for a small family of 3. But good value for money especially if you prefer to stay in this part of town.

As soon as i landed in this place with my family looking for a room, i was not satisfied with the response i got from the front office staff, but then later the marketing manager of the place came down and he was very kind and gave us a room with discounted price. He also gave us complimentary wifi and breakfast and upgraded to deluxe room. The room are very nice and clean and i would recommended this hotel for budget travellers.

I stayed at Flamingo Hotel for about 10 days in July after looking at several other options, including some highly rated (on Trip Advisor site) serviced apartments. For my needs, Flamingo was most suitable as it was closest to my place of work at Ambattur and had all that is generally provided in a well organized service apartment: free breakfast, laundry services, free wi-fi , a mini fridge in the room, and an attached restaurant (Zameendar) from where one can order food. I am a vegetarian, but there are lots of non-veg options in the menu. They even give you two large bottles of water every day.And there is a tea/coffee maker in the room with sachets of tea/coffee/milk and sugar.

The hotel is located in Annanagar, a residential area, so there is not much noise of traffic reaching the room; the place is clean, the staff helpful, and everything works as expected. Unpretentious it may be but for its price, it is real value for money.

Flamingo is a good facility - I mean the rooms. It has a club room for a family to stay together upto 4 people. I stayed in the hotel for 1 day in the club room with Spouse & 2 kids and the stay was comfortable. Rooms are maintained well and the attached Zameendar Restaurant serves good food.

The room service was good & the staff is very courteous. Enough parking is available for cars & the hotel is located in a decent locality.

Only improvement though is to improve the reception area of the hotel to give a pleasant feeling to the guests coming in.

Room Tip: If you are looking at staying around anna nagar west, Chennai, this could be a good choice. Suits th...

- Stayed from 04.03.2013 to 05.03.2013
- Booked thru makemytrip.com for Rs. 1681 per night compared to the hotel's rack rate of Rs. 2000 + taxes, which they are not ready to bring down.
- Thence, for travel website customers the checkin / checkout is 12 noon, whilst for direct customers its 24 hours.
- Got an early checkin on 04.03.2013 @ 1000 hrs.
- Hotel located almost in centre of Chennai city.
- Was given standard room, a corner room on 1st floor.
- The room though small was having a 32 inch LCD with Tatasky, Tea Coffee machine , toiletries etc. all out mosquito repellant, remote controlled electrical switches, split AC.
- The queen sizw bed though comfortable for 1 person will be small for a couple. (width equal to twice the berth of 2 AC seats).
- The hotel was clean and well appointed, with hindi speaking staff.
- Room service was prompt but a bit time consuming.
- Food was good and quantity enough for 1 person but priced on higher side.
- Good for business traveller

Where it lacked.
- No running hot water. Though its hot in Chennai, but after spending a whole day in humid and grime condition of Chennai, add to this the amount of dust and smoke in Chennai, a refreshing hot water bath is what i prefer, but was disappointed as it didn't had one (even the solar heater are missing, i assume)

- Similarly, after sleeping in AC, i prefer a hot water bath in morning but didn't find one, nor complained or asked about it.

- Complimentary BF is strictly between 7.30 to 9.30. would have appreciated if same was extended till 10.30.

Overall its a good hotel and perhaps the best in Anna Nagar Area, aIthough it has to iron out these few chinks.
