3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 April 2012

checkers hotel is centrally located. however due to metro rail project there is alot of traffic jam,one way traffic. The hotel is also under rennovation,because of this they are offering discounts/deals.Room service is almost not there.Limited menu breakfast is avilable.However for the amount paid by me(Pay 1 N & Get 2nd N Free)the accommodation is reasonable. If you are looking at 4 star hotel facilities,better skip this hotel.

1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 April 2012

I was doing a series of flights in and out of Chennai wherein i needed a hotel just to sleep after flying in to Chennai and before flying out again next morning. i was looking for a 'budget friendly' hotel near the airport. Checkers which claims itself to be a 3 star facility is your worst nightmare in the form of a hotel. I am surprised how it is still in business. i had booked myself in for 4 nights which got down to 1 after the harassment i went through! first things first - the staff don't smile. you are not made to feel welcome. I am attaching pictures of the 'best room' given to me. It was filthy, stinky, unhygenic and probably all the worst adjectives you can think of. even the cupboard door was broken! when i complained and wanted a check out, the staff immediately helped me with the bills. not once did they try to understand the problem!!! avoid checkers at all costs...it is a place where nightmares come alive....

Room Tip: Avoid this hotel at all costs

The hotel is 15-20 minutes away from Domestic and International airport. Location is quite good. The quality of service, food in hotel is OK. The rooms are decorated nicely with interiors. All rooms are A/c, with mini bar, buffet lunch and dinner facility. The buffet breakfast with exotic south indian items.

Room Tip: The rooms on all floors seems to be OK.

They advertise as 4* but not even 2*, we wanted to stay for 4 nights, but couldn't cope with just 1 night, the rooms are filthy, outdated and smells. How on earth do they get away with this scam? This hotel needs to be removed from any hotel search apps. And be careful about cancellation as you won't get your money back
