I was in Chennai few days back for my fathers eye treatment, and stayed with my Family in Hotel Guru. The hotel is located in a very convenient place. The surroundings are quite nice. The building is a bit old though, but I enjoyed the stay.The Shankara Netralaya is just 1.5 KM away from the hotel. Moreover, you can find some good restaurants and malls near to this place. The Marina Beach is just 2.5 KM away. The rooms are not very pricey. All over, it's a good place to stay for family trips.
