Calm & comfortable B&B
on Sep 11, 2017
Stayed just one night, but arrived very early in the morning (they arranged an airport pickup for us) and we were offered our room well ahead of time and also served breakfast. Rucha was extremely responsive in emailing ahead to change plans a few times. The B&B is in a nice, leafy neighbourhood of Chennai, which is otherwise quite hectic. It is a few apartments on top of each other so plenty of common spaces, and the rooms are comfortable. It is close to the Crowne Plaza hotel which has a couple of bars and an upmarket restaurant. There are other cafes and bars nearby, such as the velveteen rabbit, and a nice starbucks - the breakfast at the B&B is just ok - toast, eggs & fruit - so fine, but nothing to get excited about. Otherwise, a really pleasant stay.
Great Apartment centrally located

We were a group of 6 ladies that spent a fabulous 5 days at Footprint BB in June 2017. Footprint BB has Two apartments of 3 bedrooms each including living areas. It is a very comfortable as well as very clean with helpful, pleasant and accommodating care taker Rateesh and staff. Breakfasts were super everyday. Rucha was very helpful from the time we made the reservation up to the time we left after our wonderful stay. Will definitely return to this beautiful place as we all really enjoyed our stay very very much.
Footprint BB is very centrally located to the shopping areas as well as to Spas and places for dining in close proximity.
Great little B&B
on Jun 12, 2017
A group of five of us stayed at this charming little B&B. It was clean and comfortable. Indian and/or western breakfast options were provided. We had a Storytrails tour (highly recommend) early one morning and they served us breakfast early!
The place had great communal spaces. The staff helped us order in dinner one evening. They went above and beyond and went out to buy us beer and wine as well. We enjoyed a great night in meeting fellow guests.
Footprint is very accommodating. I would recommend to anyone traveling to Chennai!
Decent enough for 2 nights....

I had mixed feelings about Footprint. The basic requirements of a B&B were all met, they had a proper reception with excellent communication, the room and toilet were clean and serviceable. The breakfast was adequate and delicious. But it lacked a little something which would make it truly great. The room/toilet was tired looking and could do with a serious freshening up, the linen as well.
But you get what you pay for and I would look for other options the next time I visit.
Footprint is a hidden gem for accommodation in Chennai!

My Yoga group recently stayed at Footprint B&B for 7 nights and for all of them it was their first time in India. The owners and staff are so warm and welcoming - nothing is ever too much trouble. The rooms are lovely, clean with airconditioning and small fridge with attached bathroom. The common areas are so comfortable with lounges and chairs for relaxing and catching up. There's a lift too. The breakfast was beautiful - a great selection to suit everyone's palate. The location is great too - close to cafes, shops - all in walking distance. I highly recommend Footprint Bed & Breakfast - it's like a home away from home.
