Travellers' Choice
Taj - Connemara, Chennai is the city's only heritage hotel, built in 1854 as the Imperial Hotel, renamed Albany in 1886, finally re-established as The Connemara in 1890. It was an Art Deco look that the Connemara sported when it ‘reopened’ in 1937. And the legendary architect Geoffrey Bawa added his touch to the tower block and linking pool in 1974.

I stayed in Taj Connemara from 24/07/2021 to 31/07/2021. The stay here is very good and beautiful. It's been a great stay here. The services provides by staff are very good. Mr. Chintan and Mr. Anish made my stay best here. Both of them helped us a lot in every requirement and i felt like I am home. Right from the breakfast to dinner, everything was on time and both of them provided the services at the best. Mr. Chintan and Mr. Anish provided me the best facilities and I will always remember my here here just because of both of them. I am very thankful to both of them. They deserve to be appraised and appreciated well for thier services. I hope to come here again and meet both of them. Thankyou

I had a lovely stay at the Connemara. Though i had little time to look around the wonderfully redesigned place, the overall experience was fantastic. I should make a special mention among others - Amal, Divya, Reuben, Chintan, Bhaskar, Saravanan and Saravanan :). Best wishes

Pros: 1. Convenient location 2. Good food 3. Clean room 4. Booked 2 rooms which was upgraded to 2 suite rooms. Much appreciated. Cons: 1. Probably due to Covid situation...the upkeep and cleanliness of the common areas need to improve. The toilet next to the verandah restaurant is a scandal...stinks, water comes only in one wash basin and toilet flush is not working. 2. Checkin process can be speeded up. If you want to make customers wait then provide a welcome drink. 3. Booked two rooms. It would have been a nice touch to provide a complimentary airport drop. 😀 4. Not the property's fault but watch out for mosquitoes. They are plentiful and relentless.
