My wife and I spent five wonderful days at this place which really is a home away from home. It was our first visit to Chennai and we were naturally concerned not knowing whether we would be safe and comfortable although the place was highly recommended by relatives who had stayed there a few years back. We read the reviews on Trip Advisor too before confirming our booking.
We wish to share our experience and thoughts for the benefit of visitors and I trust it would be of help. YWCA, Chennai, undoubtedly surpassed our expectations and I have no hesitation in recommending this place to visitors as a safe, clean and comfortable place. We were in a standard A/C room with hot water, Fan and I must say the room was fairly basic but very clean. Linen and Towels are changed daily and B’fast which is a Buffet, is included in the Rs 1800/= per day. It was tasty Indian vegetarian food but it also included Fruits, Eggs, serial and Tea/ Coffee. Non vegetarian A’ la Carte too is available but should be ordered in advance . Trishaws are available near the gate and they are safe.
The staff are so friendly, courteous and helpful starting from the Manager Mr Shadrock going down to Aruna and the rest of the Front office staff and even up to the security staff. Being a hotelier myself I am well aware of the standard industry norms particularly in larger properties where you pay higher rates too and expect high service standards all round but in smaller properties such as this one would not expect such high standards. What more can one possibly ask for ?
