Was a good place!!!
on Jan 27, 2018
Visited this place for the second time in December, 2017. When I stayed here in 2014, the place was better maintained and was good.
The staff here is very friendly and will try their best to attend to our requests. Even though they don't speak tamil, can manage to communicate. I made the reservation via mail and when we landed the place for ready.
Booked this place with the same expectation as it was in 2014. But sadly got disappointed a bit. The place was not clean and tidy. Linens were pretty old. AC did not have a remote and was manually operated. Sadly wifi also was not available. If this place is maintained well, then it is a good place to stay.
PLEASE DONT GO TO THIS PLACE

These guys are not at all professional. I had booked their stay through GoIbibo. On reaching I was first told that the booking wasnt confirmed by the hotel but since I had reached they would accomodate me in a "sister" concern of theirs. When I created a hue & cry by calling the GoIbibo guys and the GoIbibo guys contacted their owner, they then accepted that they were full but accepted the booking. All this is happening at night 11pm. Finally after a lot of wrangling they accomodated me in their "sister" concern nearby. this is an absolutely sh****ty place - wouldnt pay Rs 500/- to stay here. Bathroom door has no lock, not even toiletries kept & no kitchen!
I would never set foot in that place again!
Good for big family stay

I was finding renting rooms from hotels quite expensive considering majority of hotel accommodating only 2 members +1 child per room and we were 5 hence I looked for serviced apartments and found this one where the reviews were decent.
Overall experience was good, staff was generous, courteous and helpful and genuinely tried to fulfill our requests. We rented a 2 bedroom apartment, rooms were spacious, kitchen has gas connection, refrigerator, microwave, etc.
1. Safety part is a bit compromised, no guards (One common guard for the building who is barely to be found)
2. Not recommended for sole stay or couple as we found few rouges standing outside the building (giving weird looms)
3. Our price included breakfast and we assumed a buffet spread but it was limited to just idli's in the name of breakfast (Not appreciated)
4. Rooms were misty and dusty
Everything you need, and more

Very peaceful and quite rooms, considering this is right at the heart of the city, and next to an extremely busy intersection besides Crowne Plaza! I looked around and none of the rooms are the same (unlike other hotels I've stayed at). Luck should favor you if you need the best room (ofcourse as I mentioned, each room is uniquely styled). TVs are huge and AirTel DTH works its magic. South indian breakfast is a good bargain (include in room tarriff). Good wifi, and cordial service by the boys (they don't know much tamil, but you can communicate effectively).
I've met the owner, and he's a gentleman. Goodluck!
Probably the best stay at the heart of the city... and for the cost of peanuts!

Yeah, the title might be suggesting I'm marketing for these guys, but then you should stay here to experience the hospitality.
I hail from Delhi and upon a friends recommendation stayed at this apartment (also, this was pretty close to Apollo Hospitals where my niece was undergoing surgery). His main recommendation was for the complimentary breakfast on offer. All of the service staff here are from north, and I didn't miss my home cooked lunch for a day, and also feasted on the sumptuous south-indian Idlis and Dosas :) Probably, anywhere else my breakfast alone would have cost me more than a couple of hundred bucks.
The rooms are just as they are in the photographs, and internet connectivity is superfast. The owner I believe has a taste for gadgets, and I've moved 2 rooms (just to check them out), and each of them has a different LED / LCD monster TV with ofcourse hindi channels :)
My wife initially wanted to take the apartment with the kitchen, but as we had to frequently attend to our niece, we ended up eating our lunch at the hospital.
The dinner they served at the apartment was excellent too, and not too expensive. They had Rotis, Subzee, and Curd rice. Please note, there are a lot of hotels nearby too. Swiggy is pretty popular in Chennai and they can serve up to your taste (but then not as inexpensive as the food here).
