“Excellent place to stay in Chennai”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 April 2012

This is a very spacious, well and comfortable hotel and a great place to stay. The rooms were huge, pleasant and quiet. Staff were extremely helpful. Morning buffet was superb. A bargain for such a nice hotel.

Let me get the one negative out of the way and then we can focus on the many positives: the mustiness hits you when you leave the elevator and step into the corridor and my room was positively musty. I only spent one night but woke up early because my throat had become so bad as to disallow sleep. I may well have come into the hotel with a bug making me particularly sensitive to the mustiness - but I had a guest visit me and that person too felt it. They need to fix their air-conditioning system - clean the filters, service it, repair it, whatever.

Apart from that the positives mentioned are spot on: good location; great service from check in to check out - pleasant, patient, friendly; extremely good food - I try to be vegetarian and am sick of the usual indian food options such as the malai- and makhani-Punjabi dishes or the run of the mill South Indian dishes - and the lunch buffet surprised on both counts, with a great spread in the veggie section and of dishes that were tasty and also new to me and breakfast too was great. I did not try the rooftop restaurant or any other facilities.

Overall, I would rate this a great hotel if you have better sinuses than mine. I actually *will not stay* here again, due to the air-conditioning, but liked them enough to book myself at the other Raintree for my next trip.

Management - please fix the air-conditioning. I'd love to come back.

Dear Mustihaveone,

Vanakkam!

Thank you for your recent stay and valuable feedback.

It is indeed a pleasure to note that most of your experiences at our hotel were good, and that you could not enjoy every bit, due to air-conditioner failure during your stay. I apologise for the same and would like to ensure that this will be sorted by your next visit. We are certainly working on it.

Thank you for your kind words and we sincerely hope to have you very soon back with us.

Best Regards,

Sanjoy Kumar Das

this was the first time i stayed at this property. despite being a small hotel it provides you with all the facilities at larger properties, yet at a very reasonable price. the rooms were quite spacious (was given an upgrade which added to the experience). the gym was fairly well equipped. the advantage of this hotel is that it is tucked away in a not so busy lane making it a very quite hotel (unlike their property on Anna Salai).
