With the shortage of decent open air bars in Chennai, GLM meridian comes as a welcome relief. With reasonably priced drinks, live matches being streamed (if any) and good starters, this is an ideal place to hangout with friends for drinking sessions...And it's not too pricey like 5 star hotels, an average 60 ml drink would set you back by...

I visited Chennai-Pondicherry in August 2016 and stayed in GLM when i landed in Chennai. GLM is centrally located in South Boag road which is very very close to T-Nagar, the mecca of shopping in Chennai. If you want to buy sarees, Nalli & Pothys are 5-7 mins away. If you want to check out the beaches, Besant beach and...

I had my doubts if this hotel could turn into disaster but was pleasantly surprised to see fairly descent staff, though not very professional. The room was clean and internet was working. My guests during my absence were taken care. I will rate it fairly good.

Located about 60-70 mins from the airport. Rrather a few problems....being located by the lift in room 204 meant hearing the phone in reception every time it rang.

Hi Thanks for the review. But, your review is really unclear as to what exactly was the problem you faced. Room No. 204 is near a service elevator but the service lift doesn't stop in the floor you had stayed (which is Room No. 204). Again, If the loo seat was broken & if there was a constant puddle under...
