Stayed here at the hotel for 3 nights as part of a tour. All the room amenities were present with a king bed, TV, fridge, safe, great lighting and city views. We enjoyed quite a few hotel restaurant buffet meals with great variety. All staff were super friendly.

Stayed here for the first time. This was mainly since i wanted to stay in a area, which is surrounded by good restaurants, Market and ATM's, if need be. The Residency was apt. The rooms are cozy & clean and not intimidating. The breakfast buffet is simple & not very elaborate. But I do not have any reason not to...

I had organised a buffet lunch party recently at the Residency in G.N.Chetty street. Excellent venue, courteous staff and excellent food. Nominal price. Met the chef in person as well, and will recommend the place.

Decent for the price. The rooms are very small even for two people. I had my adult son and we needed an extra bed. That did not provide us sufficient room to walk. Good location in terms of access to places but there is heavy traffic. Decent restaurants at the hotel. The oriental food was great.

Stayed in 312 room no and only problem I faced was the shower area turning into a puddle of water due to bad drainage. Complaint to the mgmt, hope they take action. Buffet breakfast is decent.
