“Excellent 3+ star hotel for business stay”
Reviewed March 2, 2013 via mobile

Stayed for over 2 weeks for official purpose. Simply loved the rooms, cleanliness, the gym.. Pool.... Although the buffet breajfast could have been better, they try to compensate by providing items from the menu for free. The free wifi is really great. Would highly recommend.

Aruna has been undergoing a makeover since over an year now and converting into a Fortune property...but sadly no work seems to be happening on that front. The rooms are clean, location is good and the breakfast is at par with all 4 star hotels in the city. One of the best 2 reminder service available anywhere :) But all said and done the restaurants in the adjoinging building Mainland China and Fusion 9 are just delectable. If you're new to the city or don't feel like going out this hotel is the place to be. Not recommended for vacationing, great for business travel (only required for sleep)

Recently stayed for four nights whilst visiting son in Chennai. We were very impressed with the hotel, the rooms are spacious, clean and well equipped. All reception and concierge staff were extremely polite, helpful and friendly. The beds were very comfortable but the glass walled bathroom was a bit of a shock. Breakfast was disappointing, the food was poor quality and the two staff were very offhand, unlike the rest of the staff. Would stay here again.

Room Tip: Rooms facing pool courtyard were very quiet considering location in middle of busy city.

I booked this hotel for my parents who were coming from the UK to visit in January 2013 but agonized over whether to book it based on past reviews here. Booking a bad hotel is one thing, booking it for your parents on their first trip to India is another. The hotel is in the perfect location for me but the reviews left a doubt in my mind. In the end I actually went to the hotel and inspected a room. I found them to be clean and modern so went ahead with the booking.

My parents were quite happy with the hotel, they even stayed again after our tour of India. They found the beds to be comfy, the staff to be polite and the food to be reasonable. The only complaint was that the shower was a bit fiddly and the bathroom has a full length glass panel looking in to the room itself!

The hotel decor in the lobby is looking a bit tired and dated, but the rooms my parents were in were fine. The common areas of the hotel like the lobby, restaurant, pool area and bar could do with a makeover, but I'm sure Fortune will get to that soon.

Be sure to check out the amazing Fusion9 restaurant that's next door!

Overall, a great experience for my parents and they'll happily stay at the Aruna again. I think their residency rates are quite low so you can negotiate some of the best rates in the city for a hotel of this type.

Room Tip: Rooms on the third and fifth floors were fine

Location is quite good if you have work in central chennai. But, if you have to go for site seeing in Marina beach or anywhere around, it's too far.

Hotel rooms are good. Servuice is OK. Break-fast is good. FRont-desk not so professional, but, OK.
If you have a driver, then it is an issue, no facilities for driver to get freshen up in the morning.

Room Tip: Near swimming pool is better

Been traveling to Chennai for many years now but hadn't seen this gem before. Good rooms, clean and perfect for the business traveler. Watch it, though - only king and double beds, no twin beds.

The breakfast is average and the food I tried wasn't the best, but otherwise this is a perfect place to stay in when you're down for a short trip.

I have stayed at this hotel at least 5 times(a week each) and have found that it to be real value for money with a no-frills approach. The best that I liked about the hotel is the service staff for in-room dining. Personally, I find this a good hotel to recommend in its segment!

Room Tip: Go for the suite!
