“Velachery - Velacity.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 November 2012

Hotel rooms are so small. AC in the room was not working, they are making it ready till 11pm, my flight next day morning was at 5.30pm. I suppose to wake-up at 3.00, my hole sleep went in a mess.

They promised me that , they will arrange a Cab service to airport, but they have failed. Last mint i have booked on ,my own with fast track and reached airport late. It was so horrible.

I had stayed here for 2 days for my engagement with a crowd of almost 15 people. It is a great place to stay. The corridors were clean and the room was neat. the bathrooms were also clean and neat. The staff were pretty accommodating, always smiling and helpful. One Mr Satyaraj impressed us more with his way of handling people and his friendly nature. We had a dog with us and we wanted a pet friendly hotel. Though these guys had never got in a pet, they were ready to accommodate and that surely shows how helpful they were.

The only thing that was a little let down was the food. the breakfast was pretty ordinary. The cook seem to be a Bengali who had minimal knowledge of making south indian breakfast. But the other English breakfast was pretty decent.

All the staff were pretty helpful and took care of the guests. They always offered help when required and also stretched themselves when we asked for somethings like late night dinner. Thank you guys! You guys rock! keep up the good work. The tagline seems to be apt for you!

On the whole a great place to stay for people who are looking out for a good place near Velachery. I would recommend this place for all who want hassle free stay and a good night slumber.

I had a business trip in July for almost a month and this time i had booking in the hotel called Velacity seviced apartments.
Location:- The place is on Taramani link road from OMR road and in front of TCS building in Velachery. This is a straight road and the hotel sign can be seen from a KM while coming from the OMR / Perungudi. But when you are close by no sign is available and the hotel is on a side lane oppsite the TCS building.Access to Guindy Industrial area or IT industries of Sholingnallur or Ford art Perungudi is very good.TCS is opposite side of main road.
FOOD:- North Indian food is available with predominance of SouthIndian and served by North East Indians. There is a restaurant available in the ground floor and waiters are ever eager to serve in the room.
SERVICE:- The predominantly north easterns are on toes to serve with courtsey.They work hard to ensure water availabilty whenever there is power brake down / pump repair etc.
Fitness Centre:- Availble in the ground floor having walking machine plus exerciser. Added advantage is a mini park of Chennai Corporation; in front of the hotel maintained by the hotel .Quiet walks are therefore possible here.
Room Charges:- Nominal and cheaper compared to Mount Road or City areas.
OTHERS:- Good news is the availability of Hindi Channels on TV such as ZEE TV which is not so at many other locations in view of TAMIL or TELUGU predominance.

I had one of the very small rooms, which was fine as I was only staying two nights. The room was very clean - floor, bedding, everything. The food (I only ate once, so I can't say it's all the food) was not good - very salty - and the internet service did not work very well. When it did, it was free and quite fast, but only worked once for me. There was also quite a lot of noise in the evening from the surrounding area. The bed was far too soft and the shower head did not work well, but these were minor quibbles.

Staying at velacity in chennai was a pleasure. Service is very good whcih is essential on a long stay. Food quality is good. Just make sure to book in advance since they are in demand. Ambience is good and rooms are spacious.
Teh location may not be the best but if you overlook it everything else about it recommended.

I was in Chennai along with 15 other colleagues. The arrangement was doen in the Velacity Services appartments. At first it appeared to be a normal guest house, but when we stepped in we were really amazed. The Rooms are very big, with excellent interirors. Each room has a Big TV and unlimited WiFi connectivity. There is coffee maker and Tea maker in each room. The hotel has a small restaurant and also a fully functional gym. It is ideal for people travelling on business trips and even for putting guests for family functions. There are good hotels within walking distance.

You get the rooms in range of 1800/- tol 2300/-. The rooms are quiet big and if extra beds are put, 4 people can easily stay in a room.
