“Excellent location, good food. What sucks is their room service which ranges from merely palatable to downright crappy.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 21, 2012

Value for money, an excellent location, and good food - these are the pros.

Downer? Crappy room service pretty consistently. I am actually right now at the hotel and despite having called for some Internet help 4 times , no one has shown up ( this review is due to the phone having 3G). Similarly, food ordered in the room , while tasty, takes ages to appear - a median time is about 45 minutes for a veggie sandwich and a flask of tea!

The staff is courteous but to me, that's meaningless unless the courtesy also translates into a bias for action.

Will reconsider staying here the next time because chennai is full of hotels with very good food and locations!

The Savera is well positioned to get most places in Chennai easily by autorickshaw. The place is older but being refurbished (check to see which rooms are being done), and the rooms are quite good, reasonable size and clean. As ever, the service is a bit over the top in cleaning, basically in serach of tips, but they do a good job. The food is good, with the Malgudi doing very nice lunch and dinner, if a little expensive by local standards. General staff are good on service and approachable.

I stayed at this hotel for 9 nights in November/December. I had a refurbished Executive room on the 10th floor which was excellent . Due to the ongoing renovation works some noise could be heard but, overall, this did not spoil my stay.

The facilities are excellent with three restaurants, a bar/restaurant and the Bamboo Bar. The service is spot on in all of these. My only complaint is that the buffet breakfasts in the Piano Restaurant were a bit hit and miss. Sometimes many of the items were cold and at other times just warm. The standard should be a lot better particularly in view of the rates charged.

I have stayed here in the past and always return when I am in Chennai. Whilst not a particularly cheap option it will always be my hotel of choice.

The location is really good and value for money. The hotel is quite big so rooms are readily available. I was made to wait 45 mins for my room, and on complaining the manager upgraded to the 10th floor, which was extremely good value for money for me.

The hotel is going through rennovation work, from Tripadvisor it seems they have been under rennovation for a while now. so there is no way you can sleep in at all. 9 am and you should be out of the hotel. Also, the breakfast is a largish spread but the quality could be better for sure. Had lunch at the Malgudi restaurant which was rather nice.

The Spa is a bit haphazard and could surelly improve.

Surprisingly, the hotel did not allow autorickshaws (with me, a hotel guest inside the auto) to drop you at the main porch. So one had to walk from the entry point to the porch, but the guards were nice enough to offer to carry the parcels to the bell desk.

Room Tip: 10th floor is surelly the best.

Rooms were good but the ventilation in washroom was missing. The hotel is nice and around 10 km from airport.

The food was also very nice but dinner buffet seemed little expensive at Rs 800 per person. Food in morning was also pretty good with lots of options.

Staff was friendly. We liked our one day stay at this hotel.

Not really close to the airport and not cheap to take a taxi from/to the hotel.
Rooms are nice but simple. Staff is friendly. Swimming pool and Gym are beautiful.
I find it a bit overpriced if you compare it to similar hotels in India.
