I booked Mahalaya as I was arriving very late from airport, horrified to find no ATM working at airport and since discovered they don't take foreign cards at the moment anyway. The taxi desk changed 20 euros for me (gave me old currency, thanks for nothing) and I got to hotel at around 2a.m. Lovely Indian breakfast next morning and... More

Good for a quick transit stay simple accommodations with excellent staff. Breakfast is home style in good quantity. Best is pickup and drop to airport which is done efficiently in a very timely fashion.

Had a bad experience with their restaurant as they had served pathetic food and their houskeeping had provided us with torn towels. They have charged as per a 3 star hotel but their service sucks!!! Only advantage is its close to the Airport else it's just a horrible place to stay.

PROPERT & FACILITIES My stay at this property was very brief as I had a long layover in Chennai before my flight to Bangkok. So I decided to book a room near to the airport where I could rest and catch up on sleep before my flight. The hotel is modern, with a small but inviting lobby. There is a... More

For the price charged this is one of the worst deals in Chennai. Plus points: pickup and drop at the airport. Just a short... More

I had booked this place for overnight stay. If one gets this place for a good price, this place is worth it as they have a airport pickup and drop facility which is ultra helpful-especially if the hours are odd. The place is maintained ok but the lift was smelling of cigarette but they say it is some other smell.... More

This was a nice decent hotel. Very good one for business travel to Chennai. Very close to the airport with free airport transfer. The hotel is a 24hr checkin property, any business traveler would love this. They were kind enough to offer complimentary breakfast on the day one itself as we had to leave for the airline next day early... More
