Good hotel near Airport
on Nov 18, 2017
We stayed overnight. It is good place for airport transfers and value for money. Simple but good rooms and easy to locate as on mount road.
You can visit nearby places for shopping within 5 to 10 km by local train / metro / bus / taxi. Airport transfer vehicle available with hotel on request in advance. Cooperative staff with cloak room to keep luggage post check out in case of necessity to manage check in check out timings.
Sravana bhavan nearby within 500 meters for local food test.
Nice location & breakfast buffet. Rooms need upkeep

Location - on the main road & close to the airport.
Rooms - not up market. Will not wow you, but just fine for a short 1 or 2 night stay. Rooms have AC & a small TV
Price - Just about fine. Scope for better rooms at this price point.
Service - prompt & quick.
Restaurant - available on site.
Breakfast - part of room booking. Best part of the stay. Decent spread, mostly South Indian flair. You could get your cereal, eggs & toast.
Parking - not sure!
Tip - If you do not like road noise, ask for rooms in the inner side of the hotel.
Will be helpful if you can make friends with a few odd mosquitoes.
Close to airport. And I mean close to airport!

If you want to sleep, don't stay at this place. My photo shows just how close the planes fly to the hotel. Beyond insane! This happened every 10 minutes or less until 1.00 AM and started up again at 4.00 AM.
Only if you need to catch an early morning flight
on Oct 6, 2017
We stayed here for one night in December 2016 to catch a flight the next morning.
First a couple of positives:
1. Very VERY close to airport. It took us 15 and 10 minutes respectively to reach the hotel from airport and back.
2. The food is pretty good. We did not have the chance to take the breakfast as we left early in the morning (and reception flatly refused to accommodate). However, the snack and dinner that we ordered were decently good.
Now the reasons why I have given a poor rating:
1. Very shabbily maintained. The room was dirty, stingy and we had to call the housekeeping twice to get it cleaned properly. The bathroom was stinking even after two rounds of air fresher spraying, we were telling ourselves "just bear - it's only one night".
2. The reception and front desk was extremely stone faced and unfriendly. I do not know the reason - but we did not see A SINGLE smile in the faces of the two different people that we met five or six odd times.
3. Very very noisy.
As I mentioned, if you need to stay somewhere close to the airpot for a reasonably short period of time and you want to stay within budget, you may consider this. Otherwise, a definite no.
A decent hotel with friendly staff
on Aug 31, 2017
I happen to stay at this hotel for a stop gap visit to Chennai. The proximity of the hotel to the airport is what made me choose this place and I had no big expectations.
What impressed me is the friendliness of the staff and their efficiency. I stayed one day more than I expected and my stay was rather comfortable.
The room was not that great but was decent enough to get some sleep.
The restaurant ambiance was OK and the food was very good.
Kudos to the staff.
