“Comfortable and Pleasant stay option near Egmore Railway Station”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2011

Walking distance from Egmore railway station in Chennai, Comfort Inn Marina Towers gives a nice choice to Business and Leisure Travellers. At very affordable tarriff rates - the hotel offers comfortable big rooms with all sort of facilities one can expect from a 3- star property. Food is good with buffet and ala carte options. Nice business center and Lobby - good for casual business meetings. Recommended especially if you are in Chennai for a business trip. Close proximity to Mount Road, Parrys, and Nungambakkam which are the main business centers of the city.

I have always stayed in this Hotel whenever I am in Chennai. Although the bathrooms are old fashioned and need renovation like now but the hotel offers you with a very large room at an affordable price. The check in smooth as always and you enter a grand lobby. The coffee shop is just opposite to the reservation desk so even if there is a waiting time for check in or check out, you may relax at the coffee shop. It serves the best coffee available in Chennai.

The rooms welcome you with assorted set of nuts and chips. The breakfast is the most lavish one which leaves you with the best king size breakfast you will ever have. The view from the room is also breathtaking, you can see the marina beach from the large window of the room. The room service is like super quick.

Staying in Marina is the best bet with food and the room. The hotel is located in Egmore thus you are actually in the heart of the city and hop to any place from here.

Worth staying considering the prices offered for the service.

I tried it this property 1 year ago and realized the value for money. Rooms are very spacious for Chennai city standards, reasonably priced, Good quality of accommodation interms of airconditioning (should be very efficient for Chennai's humid weather), basic needs like clean toilet, bed sheets, internet connectivity. Room service is highly responsive. Hotel is centrally located, near Egmore rail station and is very easy to find taxis, autos (three wheelers for local commuting). I always stay in the same hotel whenever I visit Chennai.

Quality of food is Very Good with a good range, continental as well as South Indian. I always enjoy the lavish break fast spread (complimentary)

I see lots of business travellers as well as foreign tourists in the hotel when ever i visit. Check out is 24 hrs (saves you the hassle of checking out early in the morning and keeping the luggage in the conceirage). You need to reserve your accommodation in advance as the hotel's occupancy is rate is quite high. Front office staff are very amicable and responsive.

We stayed two nights and Comfort Inn- it was enough.

Good Stuff:

The compact room was clean, had A/C and a ceiling fan. Small double bed was firm and comfortable. Large, flat screen TV with limited English channels. Good lighting, adequate furnishing and the bathroom was purely functional. The shower was good.

Bad Bits

Very noisy, indifferent staff, no fridge, safe or welcoming feeling. Everything felt constantly damp, bedding, clothes, us. No wi-fi or as advertised, internet facilities. No breakfast included in the price.

Conclusion

You get what you pay for and nothing else. We won’t return.

Traveling with a group, here is what we had as experiences: although standards rooms are large, sheets are durty and bathrooms not worthy of a 4* hotel but of a 2* hotel.
Also, a traveler left his suitcase unlock and later discovered that money had been stolen... Management has been advised but as the roomkeeper had yet no bad records, it appears nothing will be done. Finaly, arriving to her room,1 guest found her door wide open! Anyone could had gone in and take what ever they wanted.
This hotel might be OK for Indian tourists, but to my opinion.. .to be avoided by other nationalities.
And to be fair, I must add that the food for lunch and diner was good.

Our room was enormous and very clean with modern amenities, including a rather fierce air con system. However bathroom seemed to be completely unrefurbished and was dirty - it was as if you had stepped into a different hotel.

We only had breakfast which was fine and no other meals.
Service in the bar was good and drinks came with complementary nibbles.
The hotel itself was not in the best area, alongside the stinking river, but convenient for the rail station.

Good laundry service.
