The studios were fully booked so I stayed in an Executive room, which was very comfortable and good value in Chennai and European terms (R2533, about £32). A very smart bedroom (normal-sized at this price), luxury bathroom, a kettle with tea & coffee, hundreds of satellite TV channels, fridge (which I switched off overnight as it was noisy) and lots of little freebies and bottles. All very clean too, and very helpful and welcoming service at reception.
I booked over the internet and rang in advance to check the booking and ask for 24 hour checkout. They were able to extend the checkout to 2pm.
The breakfast (included in the room rate) was a tasty southern Indian one, plus toast. So no yogurts or fruits, apart from lime juice.
I chose this hotel because of its well-deserved good reviews and its convenience for the suburban train line for the airport and sightseeing at the Fort. There are also a few trains per day as far as Kanchipuram. If you use the train (a good way to bypass the traffic congestion), be sure to exit on the east side of the station, where there are auto-rickshaws. The route from the west side is much longer. Without luggage, it's easily walkable from the station through quiet suburbs.
