My favourite hotel in this part of Chennai. Very good food, especially enjoy their Dum Aloo and Tawa paratha, as well as their Pasta with Cheese sauce. Very good value, clean rooms upgraded rooms... much better then when I stayed their the first time some month back. So they seem to listen to feedback. Good location with shops, banks and nearby restaurants. Located next to Aavin Park, near the Adyar flyover.

Rooms are clean, spacious and have tiled floors, which is my preferance over carpets. One excllent thing is also room lighting, most hotel rooms are on the dull side, Esthell rooms have a good number of light fixtures as well as a good centre room light.

Flat LCD TV in each room, could be a bit bigger in their larger rooms. Some probelms with Wireless depending on room location relative to their router. Service is also a bit slow and the boys needs a bit more training. But for the value... excellent. I strongly reccomend this place in ths vacinity.

The Esthell hotel is about 20min drive from the airport and a good place to stay for any one having work
at the Sardar Patel area, Guindy, Alwarpet, Mylapore, Adyar areas, and the IT district.

The Theosophical Society with its extensive woodlands and the Elliotts Beach are very close by, as well as the famous Velankanni shrine and Ashtalakshmi temple. Plenty of shopping on the Sardar Patel Rd. The famous Grand Sweets of Madras, and Ambika Appallam Depot are 5min drive away. Adyar Ananda Bhavan and Nandhinee are also very close by for excellent pure veg tiffins and good coffee.

We booked on the phone directly with the hotel, and were surprisingly not asked to secure our booking with a credit card. Check in was fast and our room was spacious, clean, well furnished and very comfortable with good AC and ample hot water. Breakfast buffet is included in the room rate, mostly south Indian tiffin varieties, tasty, but the coffee could be of better quality. A speciality sea food restaurant is on the terrace. We did not go there but did try the local prawns seafood at the coffee shop which was most delicious and reasonably priced for a hotel of this kind.


We also used the laundry services. The roller press for the sarees was very good but trouser pressing was not up to the mark. Room service also takes a bit of time. Other than this, I have to say that all the staff are extremely courteous and smiling.

Price wise, this hotel compares with the New Woodlands at RadhakrishnaSalai near Royapettah, however Woodlands rooms are larger for the sameprice; but if your work is in the South of the river areas, Esthell isa much better location. I would definitely stay there again.

Stayed a couple of times at Esthell in Chennai while on business travel in 2008.

The hotel looks nice from outside. The lobby is small. The staff at the reception vary from average to poor depending on your luck and the time at which you arrive.

Rooms are clean. Lighting could be better. Bathroom and shower per se look good. When you observe in detail you can notice that they look good because the hotel is new and that the housekeeping is not maintaining as good as required.

They have 2 restaurants and 1 bar. The Indian restaurant serves above average Indian food. The same place serves the good Indian buffet breakfast in the morning.

The roof top Seafood restaurant serves good variety and tasty sea food.

The bar is crowded and nosiy in the evenings as it is popular among the local crowd.

Overall the rating is somewhere around average.

We booked blind at the Esthell, with just the one poor review here on TA to go by. However, we went ahead due to the excellent and convenient location for our purpose of visit.

The Esthell is located about 20min drive from the airport, at the junction of Besant Avenue and Mallar Hospital. It is most convenient for anyone with business in the institutions and offices on the Sardar Patel Rd, Guindy area, Alwarpet and Mylapore. Pricing is comparable with the New Woodlands on Radhakrishna Salai near Royapettah, however the rooms at Woodlands are larger for the same price.

Check in was prompt, and surprisingly credit card details were not demanded. Our room was spacious, well furnished, clean and comfortable. A breakfast buffet at the coffee shop is included in the room rate. A seafood speciality restaurant is located on the terrace. We tried some local fare at the coffee shop and have to say that their seafood is delicious.

Laundry was delivered on time but pressing was not quite up to the mark. Room service also takes a tad longer than it should. Other than these two minor grouses, service was extremely courteous right from the doorman to the reception, waiters and housekeeping staff.

The vast woodlands of the Theosophical Society, and the Elliotts Beach are very close by and worth a visit for those with some time to spare. Shopping is abundant at nearby Adyar and on Sardar Patel Rd.

All in all, the Esthell is a comfortable, well located hotel and I would stay there again.
