Extremely substandard quality of rooms. I was happy when my agent booked it and I came to know it's a Royal Orchid property, but extremely disappointed as soon as I reached the hotel. Lobbies and room was stinking badly. Poorly maintenaned, broken and outdated interiors. Completely against Royal Orchid standards. Most of 1 or 2 star hotel rooms are much better these days. This was a complete diaster.
Staff though nice and humble, but keeps staring at you and doesn't leave till you give tip.
The only saviour among this bad experience was the breakfast menu, with a lot of variety and good taste.
Good location on a budget

I spend one night for business purposes at this hotel, and recommend this location for people that need a place to stay in a good location without any high requirements.
The room was nice, and check in was easy - however the service level is below average and below what you would expect. A few examples on this below:
1. We booked a to go breakfast sandwich the night we checked in. We had a call from the kitchen the same night confirming the time and breakfast order. However checking out the next morning at 6.00am - the front desk said that they did not know about the breakfast order why they had not prepared one. They asked us to wait 5 minutes and they would sort it out - after 25 minutes of waiting we still had no breakfast and left for the airport.
2. When ordering room service you are not able to charge the order to your room. It is required you pay with cash or card in your room upon delivery.
3. This hotel offers no car service, and you will need to book a taxi well ahead of time. The travel to Chennai airport is about 1 hour when traffic is light.
Average experience hotel placed central at the Marina Mall. Great shopping location.

Vegetarians delight !

If you are a strict veg only person. This hotel is the place you want to be in. The restaurant in 9th floor serves authentic and delicious south Indian delicacies. We loved idiyappam and ghee roast dosa. Every staff will greet you with smile although bathroom fixtures are not up to the mark along with wooden floor which makes sound when walked upon.
There is a small souvenir shop beside check-in counter. The owner is a thorough gentleman with many words of wisdom and a collection you would surely like to bring with. Ample parking space is there, location is good. Overall a nice experience ! Recommended !

A stunning experience. I have had thali in various restaurants. This one is surely not to be missed.
What it is called?
Mylai Special Thali
Where is this available?
Maami Samayal Restaurant- L9, Regenta Deccan Central
What is special?
Set up in great ambiance, this place saves the authentic vegetarian food. I had the Thali today which was unbeatable.
What did it have?
5) Two types of Podi
10) Kalandha Sadham(Mixed Rice)
12) Kara Curry
15) Vatha Kuzhambu
17) Curd &
18) Oats Payasam
The food gave the real authentic home made taste. I was told by Chef Prema Nambirajan that all the spices were grind at the restaurant(none were bought from outside). There were no preservatives it additives mixed. It gives the perfect taste of home made food which is light to your tummy as well.
Verdict: DO NOT MISS IT!!
