WORST PEOPLE EVER!

Its the worst place ever, Satish is the owner of the place and we had booked rooms for my wedding in advance and on the day of the wedding this guys cheated on us and dint give us the rooms. He never bothered to give back the advanced money too. In fact we knew this guy in person and since this is a public forum, I wish not to use swear words on him!
Basic but good location.

I stayed at Ekana cottages twice. It's a bungalow turned guest house and not bad for a basic clean room in a good accessible area.
Location: its very close to Kauvery hospital near Mylapore which is a prominent area.
Rooms: rooms are basic ac rooms ,clean and hygienic with TV. They provide towels and basic toiletries. They also have a kitchen where you can pre order and eat there itself..
Food options around: SAMCO chain of restaurants which is very close by about 10 mins walk max.offers mutil cuisine food and good place to go.
Price - the rooms cost around 1200-1500 per night. Absolute value for money.
Overall not bad for short stay especially without family.
unprofessional to the core

i stayed with my mom and dad from 20th-25th of september. Well to start with, the guy at the reception is ill mannered and torturous. He will speak some language of his own. The rooms are either too small to breathe or are irritating for some other reasons. as we entered the hotel they showed us the room they had reserved for us...it looked like we were living in some one else's bedroom cuz the living room through which we entered was preoccupied by the staff of the hotel. disgusted by that we asked for a separate room so they gave us a room right next to the reception. there was no privacy in that room... it had only one window which opened towards the reception so it was of no use. then the receptionist would be always on the phone talking to god knows who 24x7 and the staff would also join him occasionally for a chat which was always vulgar. they had literally no food menu... rooms were full of mosquitoes... the fan was either dead or runs like a twister... lights were too loud for a cozy hotel room. all in all no value for money. and once again the reception was the worst part of the hotel.
Good Place with Value for money

Cost of the Place is reasonable for the location. Service is good. Good food served but it is added cost. Room was very spacious, clean and well maintained. Wi-Fi services are available, but can be improved.
A good basic choice

I stayed here for one night on my way back to Chennai. The owner was very nice as we're his staff very helpful. having travelled in India a lot and stayed in all kinds of hotels I wasn't t expecting great things for the price. however the room I had was pleasant and clean with a hot shower that worked very well. Unfortunately the toilet seemed to be constantly leaking and didn't t flush very well and there was a lot of external noise as my room seemed to be on the stairwell with the room where the boys slept (dining room) right next door. Also the owner was on his mobile phone very loudly speaking at 1.30 am. When I came out to ask if he could keep the noise down he did and was very apologetic.
I think that this hotel is fine for short stays in Chennai as it is really central in Mylapore. I was probably super sensitive to the noise having spent some time on an Ayurvedic healing retreat and also knowing that I had to get up at 5 am.
It seemed to be only other men staying here and only male staff so for some solo female travellers you might feel a bit uncomfortable here although it is certainly not a threatening atmosphere just a very male one!
