I stayed just for a night, but i had a overall very bad experience.
The bedsheets were not good. Furniture was broken. The staff was not good, staff was expecting tip for everything.

Decent place for a few hours transit, but not for anything else. Not worth the 30euros it costs.

Room Tip: Ask for another room than 206, hasn't been renevated

If you are reading this, there is only one explanation: you need a 1 night room between flights! If that is not the case then find another place then here. But for those who are in that situation, well it is totally ok!
Not great, a bit overpriced for what it is but it is clean, it does not smell of mould as I read on other reviews (probably because they have freshen up the rooms), and they even provide an extra mattress that is acceptable ( not full of bugs, smelly and dusty that is).
And let face it, it is just one night and there is a free pick up and drop off to the airport that is just a 10 minutes drive.
So all in all, I would go back there if I had to transit in Chennai.

Don't try the restaurant, even a local on the street told us it was bad. Instead we went to Shri Balajee Bhavan 412/7 GST Road, Chrompet. It is a 10-15 minutes rickshaw ride (70 rupee), it is full of locals and excellent.

When we called the number and one person picked as the name Vijay. He assured lot of things to our short stay in transit. When we came out from airport, they didn't send vehicle and they asked to take taxi from there which will be discounted from rent. After reaching hotel, we have seen dirtly atmosphere which is not at all worthy to our 4 hrs stay. They didn't issue bill and assured the same for discount of 20% due to short stay and taxi bill return. After check-out, the guy was behaved roughly and didn't give any discount including taxi fare which is supposed to be their free pick-up from airport. Total unhygineic bath rooms and bed sheets. Later I came to know that through my friends, lot of budget hotels availbale just opposite to Egmore railway station. Also, my friends advised, Egmore is easily reachable by electric trains which will not take more than 45 minutes

Room Tip: Lot of budget hotels are available just opposite to Egmore railway station. People are in transit an...

The hotel is a typical backpackers abode. The only problem I felt with this place is that it couldn't have a worse location. We had to make atleast 5 calls to the "Tamil only" receptionist The rooms are OK but they dint have the provision to split the double beds even though we were promised separate single beds leading to awkwardness.
