“Good value for money”
Reviewed 4 February 2011

Vistana has a great location - in a side road just off Pondi bazaar.
The rooms are basic, but impeccably clean. Staff are very helpful and will go the extra mile. For example, when I wanted to buy a bus ticket, a member of staff was sent with me to make sure I would find the place where to buy the ticket.
My room on the 4th floor was not the quietest one, but not too bad either, give that the hotel is near a main road.
It's a good place to stay with plenty of eateries just outside the hotel and bus stops to take you to Marina beach within 15 mins or infact most other major sights in Chennai.

Conveniently located at the heart of the city. Clean, functional rooms & reasonably priced. Only minus is that they don't have their own restaurant but they can organise food/tea from some of the good restaurants around their hotel.

Stayed in this hotel for three days with family. Selected this hotel based on the review from Trip Advisor but was not happy with the hotel. The biggest room this hotel has is too small for a family of four(Parents+two small children). Walls were full of peeled off paint. Asked for a change of room but never got it. Doesn't have a restaurant of its own.Have to give money to the room boys to buy food and drink from near by restaurants. Some times, they buy the right quantity but some times, they seem to cheat buying less quantity for the same price.
The laundry service was quick and efficient but we found that few clothes were just pressed and given back to us with out washing especially the new ones since we wanted the new clothes to lose their stiffness by washing.

I selected Vistana purely on the reviews found here. I found them to be so true. The Hotel was way past my expectations. It was a family of eight people travelling together and all with different agendas. The hotel found 3 wheeler auto taxis for all of us (which is very helpful considering that some of us are not Tamil speaking), rooms were very clean, bathrooms scrupulously clean, the ac worked very well (a small miracle in Chennai hotels), staff were helpful and despite language barriers everything worked out well. There is a good system of ordering food from outside (Saravana Bhavan) just two minutes walk away from hotel, opened till almost 11 pm. Staff will pick and bring the orders in.

The only thing I would recommend for visitors is to ask for the hotel and specifically say Pondy Bazaar, opposite the Post Office. Taxi drivers from the airport refer to it as a Lodge as they say food is not served and there was some confusion trying to find a taxi driver who understood us at the airport. I cant recommend it highly enough.

I recently stayed in Vistana Hotel with my mum and son. A double room with an extra mattress cost us Rs1575 nett. All the staff from the most junior to senior were very nice, accommodating and extremely helpful. The room was spotlessly clean and neat. The hotel is centrally located with easy access to main shopping centres in T Nagar in just 3 mins in an auto costing Rs30 per ride. Eateries are just a minute away from the hotel. It's an excellent place to stay.

My expectations were actually high after reading the reviews here. But somehow it didn't meet them.
I had an executive room and at 2000 Rs I thought it was a little small in size. The LCD TV could have been bigger and a minibar would have made the deal just that bit sweeter. Having got used to what ginger offers, those are the things I missed. Had I got the same room for 500Rs less I would have given a star extra

Having said that I would like to add that the room and the bathroom were really clean .The sheets and towels were spic and without any smell.I have to say that the location was just perfect. Situated right next to pondy bazaar, food and shopping was not at all a problem.There was ample choice to make from. Sarvana Bhavan, Anand Bhavan to name a few.

Parking was limited and the lady at the front desk was not sure if I would get one at night. It wasn't and issue in the end as there was much more space available then the cars there were parked.

Probably the best value option right now. But once Ginger opens in Chennai I would choose it over this. Till then its Vistana for sure.
