“Was kinda nice. But had its problems too”
Reviewed 13 April 2012 via mobile

My husband and I stayed here two weeks during March April 2012. Stayed in the one in venkatraman road On the plus side it was homely, convenient, kinda clean, clean bathrooms, ironing board iron box and hair dryer available on request, complimentary breakfast, room service possible, cleaning and front desk people were nice, laundry prompt and good service, no insects or mosquitoes, we could get cars arranged, close to shopping, close to friends house, in a side street with houses, I could invite my friend over order coffee and chat in the suite room just like home. That was pleasant. The place felt safe. The first week was much more pleasant than the next.

The minuses were Weak wifi in room, the suite with kitchenette had sewer smell coming out of the sink. We changed the room to suite without kitchenette for the last few days and this was good, towels were always worn and old. Something happened and changed service in the last week we were there. I don't know if it was because of the crowd or what happened. But a few times front desk girl was not prompt with the car arrangement. The girl was nice and sweet but was confused and messed up car arrangements and other requests. Generally a couple times it happened that we were left with wrong info, left waiting etc. the breakfast had variety but was always cold. Not even warm in that last week and also we had some problem with the rude behavior and language of the room service and the restaurant boys. are they paid less and overworked ? Is that the reason for their behavior ? And yes chennai 24 does not work for 24 hours as mentioned in another review.

I think if the restaurant and room service employs more professional employees and spruces up it would help a great deal.

Recently been to Chennai - and wanted to stay in the T Nagar area.

Had seen Lotus Apartments on my earlier visits to Chennai - so decided to try it this time

Stayed in their suite roooms. Which had a good living room and a bedroom.

Thumbs Ups
- Good Service
- Comparable Option (sometimes cheaper) compared to hotels in the area.
- Management is the GRT group - which also runs a 5 star hotel nearby GRT Grand. hence you can expect the professionalism and cleanliness
- Toileteries, towels, electric kettle, refridgerator - all available and in excellent condition - all that you would require away from home
- Located in the heart of T Nagar - just 500Mts from Pondy Bazar (Main Street)

Thumbs Downs
- Inhouse restaurant Chennai 24 serves only Vegetarian food. No Eggs even

About 8Km away from the Chennai Railway Station.

Room Tip: Suites are a good option if you are travelling with family - gets you that extra space

I was in Chennai on an official trip and happened to stay at this place. It happened to be a very good place to stay in. Those looking for good facilities at reasonable price in T. Nagar Chennai, should go to this place only. It provides, clean room, LCD TV, hot water and much more. I stayed in th emonth of Feb 12. Very comfortable, this property is close to the bus stand also. At some distance, there is Pondy Bazaar which is famous for its night shopping. You can get anything ranging from an ordinary needle to branded clothes. The only sad part if the food. You only get breakfast here. For lunch and dinner, you have to go outside. Overall, a reasonably good hotel @ budget price.

There are two such hotels in Chennai. I stayed for several months in both of them. I am now revieing the one at Burkit road close to Venkatanarayana road which is branch from Mount Road at Nandanam at Chennai.
I stayed in a deluxe room on third floor facing the road which is a quiet place compared to other rooms of the 3 story building. There is only breakfast in this place unlike the other one. This is therefore most suited for working persons when Lunch / Dinners are outside. You can order for food but it will take 1 to 2 hours before delivered. But the morning breakfast is served buffet in basement with varieties of South / North Indian. I found a solution to this problem by walking to SARVANABHAVAN which is a good restaurant. For walking in the early morning there is NATESAN park close by.
The hotel is very clean with all latest amenities except all the TV sets are old type and channels show mostly Tamil only.There is fitness centre that can be made useoff.
So anyone who can bear these will enjoy pleasant stay.

Room Tip: Top floor road facing.There are no towers facing and it is quiet. Take Lunch / Dinner from SARVANAB...

We stayed here for 2 nights. It's on a relatively quiet street which is a welcome break form the rest of the city. The room was modern, fresh and clean. Breakfast was basic and the staff were friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Our room on the 2nd floor at the back of the building was quiet.
