Had stayed at this hotel, coz of no other option - dint get any good hotels near the locality.
Lemme tel you, the Entrance of the hotel and the reception is gorgeously good looking.
But once you get into the room,,,, real bitter experiences... please do not go there...
first of all, the ac was not working...... there was no remote control for the tv there..... even after asking the hotel staff for the remote,,, till we got out,,, we dint have the remote control.
later on, we ordered food from there. they bot in food, with unclean glasses,,,,, they took the glasses to our washroom,,,,,, cleaned it rite away and presented those glasses for the drinks..... THE food was horrible
The beds are horrible...... they dont even have a proper foam mattress for the bed..... cudnt sleep the fulll nite.
lemme tell you ,,,, please avoid this place......if you dont want to spoil your holiday.

This hotel was good some years back. However this one is under rennovation from many years from now. No sofa or place for visitorss to sit in the reception lobby. The most disgusting thing is there is no hot water supply in the bath room . They were provding theese with buckets. The lobbys on the floors were poorly manged, Once upon a time the decent hotel , now appears like a run down place. I wouldn't recommend anymore this palcce until they sort out the current issues, look and feel

Took an AC room with no ac working.Stinking bed,rude staff,stinking fridge with spoiled left over food from previous occupant.Rooms are pathetic, Dirty and non functional bathrooms! They haven't left a single option where you would feel happy!!!

Manager on the counter not even aware of meaning of 24 hrs check out time. Only location is a plus point and one thing must to be mentioned that room service staff was very efficient. Otherwise hotel is hopeless.

Only advantage of this hotel is that it is in the heart of the city. You don't get what you have paid for.

Hotel Peninsula in T. Nagar, Chennai is simply the best hotel for the money we paid. A good twin bed room with a/c for economical price.

Hygiene, Food and accessibility to city centers are its key attractions. Also has an attached bar for relaxing in the evening.

All travel desk facilities are provided and best place if you are personally visiting Chennai for short stay, with not much time being spent at hotel. Excellent value for money.

Very nearby to shopping areas also. Just be cautious and negotiate with the auto rickshaw drivers as they dont ply by the meter.

The hotel was under renovation. There were no sofas in reception for waiting persons. Is the Hotel expecting guests to sit on floor.
Hot water was not coming when I checked in at 8.30 AM in morning. The water stopped coming abruptly in the night. Rooms are small. Bed was ok. Cleanliness average. The showers were of poor quality (probably not replaced during renovation). It does not have a good, clean restaurent. The shabby small roadside eating joint in front of hotel has many flies sitting on the tables. Overall not worth the money this hotel is charging.
