Hotel Shriram
Ranked #222 of 693 Speciality Lodging in Chennai
Reviewed 31 October 2014

We 3 ( me, my wife and 3.5 year old kid) started our Chennai trip by staying at Hotel shriram. Here i'm posting real life inside picture of our room (Non A/c Standard room - was pre booked online for Rs 550 ) Also share good and bad things which we noted by staying for a night.

As we arrived at Chennai central railway station around 10 am, we just tried to book pre-paid Auto rickshaw (tuk tuk) at pre paid counter which was just outside railway station, standing there in queue for 15-20 minutes. when it time to book rickshaw, the counter man just showed me the route to goto the hotel. And said rickshaw cannot be booked for this hotel as it is near by. Hardest part is reaching hotel with a kid and bag walking between heavy Chennai morning traffic. Hotel was just Opposite hotel royal regency, by entering gali (lane) next to hotel Golden Tower. In 10-15 minutes we reached hotel. Check-in took another 10 minutes.

We have given room number 202. First I'll tell you negative points about hotel and room:

1] No towels given!
2] No Blanket !
3] No soap, no shampoo
4] No view from room window, you will see only buildings attached to the hotel room.
5] Bath room windows was a mosquito's entry point.
6] No hot water for 24 hours [ Only available between 6:30 am to 9:30 am (as per reception)] We had cold water shower, hard for our kid. who was crying due to cold water.
7] Bed was not clean. we found many small hair all over the bed.
8] so much noise at night due to other room mates making noise + Diwali crackers noise. Able to sleep only after 3 am or so.

Now positive points:

1] There was a 2 pillow and a bed
2] One charging point
3] Two Mirror (small in bath room, huge one in bed room)
4] One dust bin
5] One small decade old color LG TV with airtel digital TV connection.
6] Goodnight mosquito repellent with 3-4 drop of liquid in it.
7] Power cut - but in 5 minute it's back as there was a generator backup.
8] Location! walk-able distance from railway station. it's come between central railway station and local Egmore railway station.

This hotel is definitely not for the family. If single, it's good for one night stand. I still have given 2 star rating for this hotel just for the location and for the price.

Room Tip: Not sure about A/c room. But avoid non-a/c room.

this is a budget hotel. Clean tiny rooms. Average service. good for them who want to stay for a long period. biggest plus point for us was the FOOD. there is restaurant in the hotel...they serve bangali food.
