“Good hotel in a good central location!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2013

Good clean rooms, Clean bathrooms, Smooth check-in & Check-out process, good breakfast. and a central location. These are pretty much what one one would expect from a decent hotel and Sea Shell residency manages to meet almost all these expectations with the only exception being the complimentary breakfast which is just a collection of sandwiches! But then again one has the choice of ordering off the menu and getting a delicious breakfast as the food over there is quite tasty.

The 24 hr check-in/check-out was of great help as I had reached the city by 5:30 AM. Did not face any problems and the staff at the hotel was quite friendly and helpful as well.

Would definitely return to this hotel if I need to visit Chennai again.

The room they had alloted to us intially was leaking water from roof and in bathroom only hot water was comming. Think about having a bath in hot water in Chennai!!

In breakfast they only have sandwich(Veg/Non Veg) . Their service is not quick..You have to purchase water as they said..there is water problem in chennai..!!

They dont have power back up and lift is very old..while checking out..i got traped in lift for 5 minutes until they start the emergency generator...terible experience!

I came here at 5 am this morning on a day trip, so the 24 hour check out was a great convenience. The location is very good - just off the arterial Anna Salai - not too far from the station, Spencer Plaza, and a host of other places.

The room was decent, but had a rather noisy air-conditioner. I expected a hotel of this category to have a tea maker, but I was disappointed - especially since my day does'nt start till my first cup of tea. Complimentary breakfast - was a sandwich (not great) served in the room with a cup of tea. Wifi did not work - although they said it works in the lobby.

Service was very poor - with me having to call reception on a couple of occasions to reach Housekeeping and Room Service.

I think that you could choose to come here if the only consideration was the location.

Room Tip: Check if you can get a room with a Split a/c rather than a Window airconditioner.

This is the second time I stayed at Sea Shell. We like the ambiance and the location of the hotel. The rooms are spacious and so is the washroom.

The sea shell restaurant adjacent to the hotel serves amazing and lip-smacking Arabian food and cocktails.

Room Tip: Well located.

If you are going to US Consulate, look no further, this is the most convenient hotel. It's just a 5 minute walk to the Consulate. The rooms are clean and compact. And the staff are extremely courteous. The only downside is there's no Internet in the rooms, but you can use the wifi in the lobby. But I would recommend this hotel anyday.
