“Prana : the best spa I ever enjoyed”
Reviewed March 21, 2011

The place is superb, the staff is caring and professional, they offer you a green tea and a fruit plater along with the massage. And you go out of this place relaxed and resourced.
If you are planning to stay at this hotel, don't miss the spa !

I visited Asiana again in February. While not much has changed on the ambience and rooms, I found the food quality a lot better this time. The service was also good and I was overall happy with the stay. Looks like they have changed some things for the better!!

Good hotel, especially if on business in the numerous IT parks on the outskirts of Chennai

Good 4/5 star hotel, excellent service from staff, excellent food, including international cuisine and room service options

Rooms are large and airy with good bathroom with powerful shower

Worth a visit to the Spa and roof top swimming pool, very peaceful and serene, excellent massages and good value for money

Overall for a hotel to use whilst on business it ticks all the boxes and more

As I have mentioned in my title review one of the best hotels I have stayed in for business. The cleanliness was first class and the rooms are spacious and well looked after. As also stated in other reviews the restaurants are are really good. The beef in the WildFire restaurant was first rate cooked to my request. The Thai restaurant (Silk) was not as authentic and was more like Chinese to me. The Caramel restaurant is a buffet style but a menu is also available. The buffet range of foods is extensive and there is also a good selection on the menu. This restaurant is also open 24hours and is cheaper than the others. The free WiFi was fast and reliable. My only fault if you could call it that was that the staff where over attentive and was very quick to remove your plates as soon as you finished your course. I had to cut my stay early and there was not problem with this and no additional costs made. The taxi service provided by the hotel is three times as much as using a normal taxi but maybe safer. The hotel location is its biggest downside being on the main IT road but not close to Chennai centre or the airport (27Km) away. The price does reflect the quality of the hotel.

Having read the positive TripAdvisor ratings, I booked two nights at this hotel. It's brand new, and the lobby has impressive, five-star style appointments. Unfortunately, the hotel was definitely not five-star in other regards.

First, the hotel internet connectivity was down, or so painfully slow as to be essentially unusable, about 90% of the duration of my stay. This is just unacceptable for a modern business hotel. This could certainly have been a temporary issue with the hotel's internet provider, but a good hotel should have multiple internet connections from multiple providers to avoid just this type of situation. The internet problem alone means I will not stay here again.

I was given a smoking room, despite having booked a non-smoking room, and the hotel couldn't change it because they were sold out. Fortunately, the smoke smell was not noticeable, but others might have bigger issues with this.

The room itself felt slightly damp and the decor and fixtures felt a little cheap and out-of-date, which is surprising for a new "five star" hotel. Ironically, one aspect of the room clearly had a lot of money spent on it -- the "electronics" -- but it was done in a way that was silly. For example, the room phone is a top-of-the-line Cisco business phone -- but unfortunately, it's so complex it is literally impossible to figure out how to dial room service, reception, etc. (and I'm an IT person!). All room lights are controlled by a single electronic panel, which is inconvenient at best (to turn on the desk light, you have to cross the room to use the panel), but annoyingly, the panel didn't respond about a third of the time, which left me clicking in vain to turn on or off the lights. Overall, the room just didn't feel warm or comfortable. The bed was fine, but the pillows were both synthetic, and no feather pillows were provided.

The restaurant / coffee shop was fine -- nothing spectacular, but it did the job. Somewhere between the reception desk and the transportation desk my car booking was lost, and as a result I had to stand around waiting for 10-15 minutes while they attempted to find someone to drive me. The hotel card was new and in good condition, and the driver was good.

Overall, I would say, good effort, but definitely not 5-star international grade. Management should:

1. FIX THE INTERNET ISSUES. This is a "showstopper" bug.
2. Get rid of the room electronics, and replace with something that works (for example: a desk lamp with a switch on the base!)
3. Hire a designer with a true understanding of international boutique hotel design aesthetics. It's not expensive to do this well.

The hotel offers excellent amenities and service.The hotel has beautiful ambience,aesthetic and is luxurious.
The rooms have beautiful decor , are well-equipped and great in-room services.The breakfast has a grand menu and wonderful.
Slight problem with the hotel is its location.The approach road towards Old Mahabalipuram is not very well laid and maintained.It has pothotels. But once you are at the hotel you would completely love the service and luxury at this hotel.
Whenever in Chennai,do taste the sweets from Krishna Sweets..

I stayed at Hotel Asiana for a business trip. It is not a very good hotel. It does not give a royal feeling and the rooms are at best ok. While the food is good, it is not as good as what you would find in similar hotels elsewhere. Overall, not a good deal.
