“Great value for money in the heart of the city”
Reviewed 4 July 2012

The spring hotel in Chennai is located a short drive into the Kodambakkam high road as one turns from the Nungambakkom high road.

On the plus side, the location is fantastic - you're a short walk or auto ride away from many of the attractions or reasons you're in Chennai. The music academy, US consulate, gemin flyover and surrounding business buildings are all close by. My company's office at Haddow's road is also very close. There're several good restaurants close by - Zara's the spanish bar is few kms, Kumarakom (The kerala food joint) is walking distance. The hotel's own restaurant (movies) serves superb coffee and fresh dosas amongst a wide selection of other items for breakfast. Breakfast was included in the room rent for the night and it was great value for money (around Rs 3400/- for the night).

On the other hand there're no other facilities such as a pool or a gym as the hotel was initially designed to be a set of service apartments and this does reflect in the design. The rooms are on the smaller side and some of the furniture in the room (the study table, etc) is not well designed for tall people. This is the only reason why I've given it four stars.

I choose this place based the fellow traveler reviews and tried to ignore the one off bad reviews too and I was mighty impressed. I took some pics for you see what I'm writing about.

My review is as follows:
Look and feel- I loved every bit of the decor. It was so well done and the lights were so good that it made me feel like I was in a 5 star dressing room. Pink and grey accents and classy stationary too. A few oddities did exist but I will overlook it.

Service - polite and to the point. Very professional. Didn't over please or over impose.
I asked for a pair of shower slippers, even though i had the basic room, they obliged.

Food
In room dining
Was OK OK. Ordered veg ragout with penne and felt that the taste was as expected indianised. The veges were chunky and I asked for extra mushrooms on the side which went missing. For 250 odd rs I guess it could've been better.

Breakfast
Again a very limited spread but I'm not really complaining here. Everything was fresh and satisfying.

Location
Even though it says kodambakkam high road, I would tell the auto guy it is on nungambakkam high road cross. Well located.

Overall a fantastic option for the price I paid. The hotel did send a thank you SMS too. Nice touch.

Will return again!

I was in chennai a month ago for my us visa interview. And i stayed here overnight. The staff was really friendly and helpful. I had to take couple of print outs and the receptionist helped me out with that. I ordered room service and the good was delivered within the mentioned time and food was warm and tasted decent.

It is a mid level hotel, so dont really expect anything out of the ordinary. Rooms are not all that spacious - i stayed in a deluxe double room. And the lighting inside the hotel is really under par. they use LED lights most of the places and let me tell you, they are not pleasant. the underlit rooms and hallways in my only negative comment about this place. Oh ! and the room is not so sound proof. By around 11 pm i could hear everything happening in the kitchen - from people talking in tamil to plates being taken out of the washer. It was a little annoying but is fixable by pumping up the TV volume a little until you are sleepy ! :)

the complimentary breakfast they offer is again decent. Not a really wide spread at the same time, it has south indian delights to hash browns.

And its a 5 min walk from the us embassy, so if you have early morning appointment at the embassy and you want a place to crash the night before this place is perfect !

From entry into the hotel till exit everything we find awesome. It will not be fare if we speak on the friendly behaviour of the receptionist and leave others a side. Similarly it will not be the justice, if we talk about restaurant Movie’s food and do not talk about their service.

The entire staffs of Spring Hotel have made our trip rememberable. Wishing all very the best for spring hotel and hotel staff. We can not forget the staff at Reception, Housekeeping, Room Service, Dining hall “THE MOVIES”. They will be in our heart.

Specially, we (North Indian) did not feel alone in Typical South Indian Language Speaking City "Chennai", because of nice Hindi Speaking guys (employee) at Spring Hotel. Even who did not know Hindi, they did speak so many Hindi words by consulting their colleagues

Overall the trip was awesome

Room Tip: 2nd Fllor because of its theme
