“Very Pleasant Stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 January 2012

Was there for 10 days as a stretch on a business tour. Loved it. The Rooms are very Gud. The Staff is very courteous and attentive. Take care of you very nicely. The Food is Gud and Location is also nice. Found the stay very decent and refreshing. Would definitely like to visit the hotel again.

Located at the heart of the city, this hotel has been one of the most reputed in Chennai so I decided to stay here for 2 days. The reception area is tiny and there is no customer track record, even if you have been to this place 4-5 times, they will treat you as a first time guest.

The shocking incident i experienced was when they allotted my room to another guest around 10:15 pm and that person was able to open the door and walk into the room! the manager was apologetic but it was not something that was expected from a reputed hotel

Room Tip: The good part of the hotel was its restaurant that is open almost till 3 am and the bisibelebath and...

This was the first hotel stay after my wedding and for the money I paid(Rs5500, ~$110) I expected high quality. I was visiting chennai for my wife's visa interview.

The lobby was very clean and welcoming, the service was also good. I first thing I did not like was that a boy did not take and bring my luggage to the room. The first thing that hit me as soon as i entered the room was the smell of cigarette smoke. I immediately called the room service and a manager or someone came and sprayed room freshner in 5 mins. I plastering in the bathrooms was not up to the mark, but the bathroom itself was very clean and clear.

In the morning we went to the restaurant for the complementary breakfast which was excellent (5 stars)in variety of foods and the quality as well.

After the visa interview we came back to the hotel and used the free internet service, it was flaky and very slow. Went back to the room, and the cigarette smell was back, called house keeping again for the room freshener.

In the evening went to the lobby to check out and there were quite a lot of mosquitoes, very disappointing.

Overall, the food was the best thing that I liked, and everything else didnt feel like value for the money spent.

An ideal business hotel in the center of busy T-Nagar shopping area however food quality is not good. In fact, it would be advisable to avoid taking food at the hotel and try at various restaurants available in the adjoining area.

Neat and clean rooms with a great view of the city from the higher floors makes for a delightful stay at The Residency. The rooms at the back look out over Chennai's famous SAREE shopping hub at T. Nagar, which is just a few minutes away. The Chinese Restaurant and the Coffee Shop were really good. Room service is prompt enough. The staff quite helpful, and the breakfast (if it is part of your room plan) is sumptuous and truly filling. The location of The Residency also makes it a convenient place to get local transport. The Wi-fi access works well. When I stayed there, there was parrot in the lobby that was reading the fortunes of guests. I did not want to know mine. But anyway, if it has not flown away by now, then you could try it out for fun!! All in all, one can book in to The Residency with a sense of confidence. A good place to stay!!

The Residency is a very clean hotel that provides great value for the money paid.
We spent two nights here. We were more than satisfied!
The location cannot be beat. Very central and right in the thick of T.Nagar!

Breakfast was included in our room price.(very nice as well).

The gym is decent; and there is a professional to help / guide you at the gym.
Elevators are somewhat slow. (there are only 6 floors or so).


I have eaten at the restaurants on several other occassions.

Important:
1. All guests need Government issued Photo ID. (No credit cards with photos).
2. Check-out is 24 hours time....which means, you have the room for 24 hours from the moment you check-in. This is very convenient if you are taking late night flights, etc.

Room Tip: Elevators are slow; so get a room on the lower floor.
