This hotel has reasonably spacious rooms that are quite clean. It is located literally just a few minutes drive from the airport, so it is good for early morning flights. Considering these factors, the price was quite reasonable. I would stay there again for another early flight.
The check in was efficient and quick. Staff was helpful. I didn't eat there, so am not sure if the restaurant is on site or the food is ordered in from a nearby restaurant.
The only downside was that the internet was slow. If it had been faster I would have rated it a 5 instead of a 4.

The hotel is only 3 km from Chennai airport. Its most suitable if you are not planning to explore city and wanted to use it for the transit between two flights.
Restaurant in hotel is ok in terms of food though nothing special.
Rooms are clean and room service is ok. Front desk people are cooperative though with some of them you have to struggle a bit due to language.
The tariff is same for including or excluding breakfast. The breakfast starts at 07.30 AM, so if you have early morning flight then you can't have.
For pick up or drop from airport, they charge 200 INR in taxi.

Indigo airlines booked me there, when I had to miss a flight. Though they call themselves 3 star, I wonder how it is so! One of the very few hotels with a balcony!

Best part: So close to the airport! And they pick up and drop you!

This property is located near the airport and has a good location. The staff is helpful and responsive. The rooms are spacious and clean, but the bathrooms need maintenance. The breakfast is too good, the food quality simply superb. The property offers chargeable airport drop facility. Overall, it is a decent budget property for short and long stays near the airport.

Please do not opt for this hotel. I booked a room in this hotel through make my trip on 13th november 2013 for 1 day. I informed that I was going to check in at 11.30 P.M. I and my wife were to carry on a vacation to Andamans from then on. I had asked for airport pick up and drop. I informed hotel earlier only my flight details. When I landed at chennai airport there was no one to pick me up. I called hotel to pick me up. They sent car which reached after approx 20 mins(the hotel is almost 2kms from airport). When I and my wife reached hotel at say nearly 12 A.M. the manager told he DOESN'T HAVE ANY ROOM VACANT. Can you beleive this??? At night 12 A.m where will you go with your family in an unknown city. Then as they say there was no room in their hotel they would shift me in another hotel. They shifted me to another hotel of same category(3 star) named Arasan Inn (which was 1 star hotel) . The room was pathetic. I called make my trip representative but to no avail. They cared as much as the hotel manager of Mahalay residency. After nearly 15 days the Make my trip people are providing me difference of room tariff nearly rs.1400/-. But that night non of the make my trip representative even tried to find another good hotel for me. I was extremely disappointed as I could do nothing about the situation at that time. I was scared as I was with my wife and all the uncultural things that are happening in our country really feared me when I reached another hotel Arasan Inn at late night.

The hotel location was good and services were ok, though over-priced. I am sure you can get similar hotel around for less money. The shock came however when we were checking out. The staff said the hotel bed-sheet was stained and we had to pay for the bed-sheet. They demanded 1000 Rs (20 USD) for the bed-sheet. I think this was easily 3-4 times the actual cost of the bedsheet. I am sure they would just clean the bed-sheet and use it and pocket the money. Already late for the flight, we didn't have much time to argue. I don't know why they just jump at any chance to rip off guests. Its not a lot of money, but surely leaves you feeling cheated and bitter.

This hotel is just a few minutes from the airport. It is a very good place to spend the night if you have an early morning flight. They pick you up at the airport and deliver you there as part of the price of the room. This is a very simple hotel, not a western "chain" hotel, but it does its job. The room was clean. The food at the restaurant was fine. The staff was very helpful. I liked that they were very welcoming even though there was nothing to be gained since people stayed there only a few hours.

The accommodation was clean, good value for money and readily accessible from the airport. We arrived during demonetisation and just after the cyclonne had hit, so not only was the city in the throes of struggling with availability of cash, but a lot of the IT infrastruction was down, which meant some of the ATMs and phones lines were out of action. Nevertheless the staff were exceptionally helpful and went out of their way to change some money for us and to get hold of transport to ferry us to central Chennai.
