“Stay at oriental inn”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2012

Neat and clean rooms. Although entry is really bad. Internet is slow. Breakfast is very ordinary. In all a good value if you have in room only to sleep.
Location is good. Right down is a Chinese, India and a pub. Lots of restaurants nearby.

Room Tip: always try a new cheap hotel, preferably away from main city hub.

2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 April 2012

The hotel picture doesn't do justice. It's hidden, entrance thru a back alley. Aircond is super cold and the heated water can sear you. Cable TV is excellent, wifi is fantastic. Relatively for Chennai this hotel is clean. Don't expect concierge service. Room has everything, bathroom is large. No wardrobe locker or safe box.

Room service is poor, you can't get a tray or such thing, breakfast on the house is way to simple and you must have it in your room, but clean. Connected to Spanish tapas, Chinese, Mexican and northern Indian restaurants which are independent but operated by same owner. These restaurants are very expensive but of high standards and popular with Chennai high society.

Overall a 3 star, reception girl very good in the day, but you may find a big guy snoring away in the wee hours and never answer the phone. At this price there are just too many bad hotels in chennai, so Oriental would be the best here.

Room Tip: Just take first floor, the lift may not work at times. All rooms are of same no view slight noise va...

A clean place to sleep with good shower, clean toilet , good AC to beat the Chennai CIty Heat and to be at the heart of the city then this is the right choice for the budget traveller.. be it business or a short stay with family. NO fringes but lots of options to eat in and around and a walkable distance to some 5star hotels , the great Indian Chat centre- Gangotree and the authentic South Indian restaurant Woodlands. Rooms are small but functional.

Room Tip: Do not stay on the lower floors as its close to the kitchen
