Located in the heart of the city. Service is good and fast. Wifi is very good (15MB/s) Rooms and furniture are poorly maintained. Wooden flooring coming off, hole in window curtains and torn fabric in sofa seat is something which puts you off. There is a funny smell that runs from Hotel lobby to your room and other passages at...

Located in T. Nagar, hotel is approx 25 mins from Chennai Central and 1 hr from Chennai Airport. It is a busy hotel located in close proximity to business centre. Rooms and service are value for money. Front Desk staff are either over-worked or confused as it took them over 15 mins just to locate my booking with everyone pushing...

For the price, services offered at the Residency is one of the best! What i love about this place is the location, distance from airport, great breakfast buffet, superfast free wifi in the room and the friendly but not over friendly staff. Amenities in the bathroom are minimal but alright. Cleanliness is maintained.

I stayed for 1 week in this hotel. It has all basic amenities. Staff was courteous and helpful. Service was little slow though. Range fo food offered is large but of average quality. Bar is too small. Pre book early if you wish to unwind. Decent hotel.

Good hotel to stay, in a prime location. Room fare includes a breakfast buffet, which is good. Rooms are spacious, well lit and arranged. Reception is really helpful. I would've given 5 stars if not for the delay in room service I faced. I had to call room service / reception 4 times to get a bottle of water.
