Clean room and also spacious to get around. But room had some smoking smell which I told to the staff and they instantly gave us another room which was nice. Everything was available at walkable distance and all facilities were available nearby.

What you expect from a Budget hotel when you are travelling on a tight budget? Clean room, good sleep, easy check in-check out, no-nonsense staff, well-maintained toilets, accessibility etc... If this is your criteria, definitely Mount Residency can be your best choice. I stayed here for last 2 days and I personally found it at par with branded Budget hotels like Ginger or Redfox etc. Having staying in such budget branded hotels, I can personally say, this one has almost all same amenities as to that one. Since I was on a very tight budget, my intention was to get a room primarily to sleep rather inhouse amenities and facilities. The best thing of hotel was, it has a 24-hour Check-In/Check-out policy (not applicable for late check in after 3 PM afternoons). Since my bus reached Chennai morning 8AM, it was looking a hotel that allows early check in and most of the branded budget hotels had a stricter 12 noon check in, which wasn't good for me. Its in this hunt, I found Mount residency, which allowed early check in that has 24 hours check out policy. It was good enough for me. And when spoke over the phone to clarify, its Manager- Riyas was too helpful in clearing the doubts. Whats the biggest advantage was, its right in heart of the city. Just on side of LIC Building in Mount Road (Anna Salai), a landmark in its own right. Its actually located in a small lane on side of LIC Office. The lane is dotted with small workshops, godowns etc with lot of workers roaming around, which could be one reason why the hotel may not appeal for many business travellers or families as such. But I found no reason to be worry, as the hotel is barely 300 meters from the main road (Anna Salai) and those on street doesn't bother me. In my experience, its okay even for families as I have seen few families in the hotel. Mr. Riyas upgraded my room to a small suite, which had a small sitting room with a couch that doubles as a bed and a single sofa and large dressing table cum working table. The room has a good thick mattress with well-maintained linen and a thick blanket. Apart from it, it has a good dressing table, a cupboard and baggage rack. The toilet is decent even though it has stains on the handles. The TV has mostly English, Hindi and Tamil channels alone. The hotel provides complimentary wifi facility and all airconditioned. The AC was super cool (though the remote is a bit confusing as it could change from cool to humid on touch, but soon understood how it works) Don't expect any much room service or such. No in-house restaurant as such. But they have a janitor room in every floor and you can see room boys in that. Its easy to ask them for a bottle of mineral water or such things. The location is unbeatable, one can get anything within its radius. The Express Avenue Mall, one of the largest malls in the city is within walking distance (600 Meters), so as Spencers. There are more than 2 dozen restaurants in its vicinity of various range. So as several shops in Anna Salai LIC area. And easy to get autos or cabs. If booking Uber/Ola, its better to tell them Subway before LIC or back side entrance of SBI Personal Banking branch, as many don't know this hotel which is inside a lane. Its much better to walk 300 meters to the road, rather confusing the drivers. As a Malayalee, I found so much help from Riyas, being a Malayalee and many staff are also from my state. And for the price I got (Rs 1000 per night), I can't complain about anything. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

I was in Madras to attend a training at British Council at Anna Salai, hence was looking for a good hotel in nearby areas. This hotel became visible on Google map & I visited the place. I subsequently stayed in the hotel for two nights and found it okay. The rooms are small, no doubt, but they are clean. The room service is quick. The tariff is also okay considering the fact that no free breakfast/ tea/ coffee is provided. Yes, free wi-fi facility is available and there seems to be no restriction on the usage. Many important offices (passport office, US Coonsulate etc) are nearby. This hotel is definitely a safe place to stay. Recommended for budget travellers.
