If you REALLY ,REALLY want to stay close to the airport ,have a very short stay in mind and don't mind a shabby room with average food then stay at Mahalaya Residency , else keep away. For the price charged this is one of the worst deals in Chennai. Plus points: pickup and drop at the airport. Just a short...

I had booked this place for overnight stay. If one gets this place for a good price, this place is worth it as they have a airport pickup and drop facility which is ultra helpful-especially if the hours are odd. The place is maintained ok but the lift was smelling of cigarette but they say it is some other smell....

This was a nice decent hotel. Very good one for business travel to Chennai. Very close to the airport with free airport transfer. The hotel is a 24hr checkin property, any business traveler would love this. They were kind enough to offer complimentary breakfast on the day one itself as we had to leave for the airline next day early...

Neat, convenient, good service, good food. Very close to the Chennai airport, specifically the international terminal. They have a free pickup and drop from and to the airport. If you're looking for a convenient place to stay in between / before a flight, look no further.

Mahalaya Residency is a good option to choose if you have an early morning flight the following day. Its very near to the airport plus there's complimentary pickup and drop for the guests. Reading the reviews, we were a bit hesitant to stay at this place but we had no other option considering the advantages it had. To our surprise,...
