Decent Executive-Class Hotel
on Oct 4, 2017
Located approx 250m from Chennai Central Station, this hotel is good for Travelers esp Businessmen and Executives for short stay. Although Tariff is not directly proportional to room service or facilities, but it value for money, as rooms are nicely done and its relatively new hotel and a/c works fine unlike other hotels. Staff needs to be taught lessons on customer service, as they are not so polite.
City Home, 132 Walltax Road (NOT 131)
on Jul 13, 2017
City Home is conveniently located on the WallTax Road running adjacent to the east boundary of Chennai Central railway station, about 600m from the station exit. This end of the Wall Tax Road is not too well-maintained and cluttered with budget hotels, typical to major railheads in the country
The hotel offers basic facilities ideal for business executive stays, especially for railway travellers. It has compact air-conditioned rooms with individual A/C units, flat-screen TV with a DTH feed with national & international channels, free WiFi and attached bath with hot & cold running water. Bed / bath linen were fresh and clean, rooms are typically cleaned once a day, in the afternoon. The front desk and staff were cordial, efficient and helpful. Check-in / check-out time is 24hours. Payments are accepted both in cash & cards.
The hotel does not have a restaurant but can provide tea / coffee and toast / eggs. For regular South Indian (and some North Indian) meals and snacks, hotel Shiva Sagar is close by.
I recently made a day trip to the city on some personal work and stayed here as I was taking the train out in the evening. I had reserved a room over the phone (no advance payment required) based on online ratings. Check-in / check-out & billing were smooth and quick. However, the hotel possibly has seen better days and the tariff appeared to be on the higher side.
Excellent Hotel cum Home in Chennai
on Jan 31, 2017
I with my family members went on tour to Southern India and stayed in City Home Hotel in Chennai in two spells i.e. from 01.01.2017 (evening) to 05.01.2017 (morning) and further from 08.01.2017 (evening) to 11.01.2017 (afternoon). It is true to mention that in all respect the hotel is appropriate for any traveller. Both the Managers of this Hotel are absolutely gentle and co-operative. All services provided in the hotel were truly excellent.

Over-rated and not worth the money
on Jan 31, 2017
Room tariff is high compared to nearby hotels. Staff is very rude and arrogant. Room service is slow and not well-maintained. Bathrooms are unhygienic, management is not giving attention. Before check-in, ask Reception to give fully cleaned room, else you will not pay the room tariff.
Bit overpriced compared to peers
