Reviewed 17 December 2012

We stayed in Chennai for five days. Locations near to Marina beach and not far from other landmarks is good. The hotel should be cleaner and the staff is not very competent.

The restaurant is mixed. We had one oustanding meal and the rest were quite bad. Maybe they have changing kitchen staff.

First night they give us a room that smelled awefully of smoke. We complained and a staff came with a spray can of air refreshener. Laughing at this Jugaad solution we pressed for a clean nonsmoking room and got one without hustle. But the same night there were renovation works, keeping us awake until 3 am. My complaints didnt really do anything and I really had to push the next morning so that they would give us yet another room that would be clean and relatively quiet.

The wifi which only works in the restaurants and lobby area, not in the rooms, is very expensive in comparison. 100 rb / day.

The rest of the stay was without problems. So from our experiences, it is hard to give a recommendation. This could be a very nice hotel, if the staff was a little better and the place a little cleaner and quieter. But Chennai seems to be a little more on the expensive side, so go for it if you are on a budget.

not a good stay if you are looking for a peaceful stay, not clean and staff is not supportive, but restaurant has some good authentic chennai dishes.... staff should pay more attention to cleanliness and customer support, the rooms are full of dust and hot water, and air conditioning is not working properly.....if basic things that customers are expecting was there could have rated as average.....

We were in Chennai for 3 days specially for Tirupati Darshan. We stayed at Tri Sea Residency. It is located at one of the best location in Chennai just beside the Chepauk Stadium.

The rooms are spacious and of course very clean. Room Service is excellent. Food quality is good and the staff are very cooperative.

Manager is also helpful and provides assistance to the customers starting from booking hotel till you check-out.

The hotel infrastructure is also stong as they are well-equipped with facilities like sms notificaton services.

Room Tip: If you are availing TTDC tirupati package then must stay as it is opposite to TTDC office. So as the...

It's a nice budget hotel. close to Marina Bay and chippok. Opposite side you will get Tamil Nadu tourism office. so you can enjoy all the site scene and can take package from them with good price and good guide. Rooms are goods. you will get good food options in the hotel and outside hotel. Though it's little bit far from airport.

I had been to Tri Sea on two occasions and unlike most people who have reported issue with problems while booking online, I had no such experience. I had booked only 12 hrs before the actual arrival through makemytrip and there was no issue during checking in.

The plus points for the hotel are:
1) It has a car parking
2) Has two decent restaurants with decent food.
3) Is close to the Marina beech.
4) Rooms are neat, clean and large with a big bathroom.

The things that people may not like about it are:
1) Unlike the photo, the hotel is not an eye catching, flashy and modern hotel.
2) Similarly the rooms are decent and clean but it is not very modern with cool interiors kind of room.
3) The area around the stairs may not be too clean.

Overall this is a decent hotel and if you are looking for a decent budget hotel then Tri Sea stands fair.

Booked through make my trip for Executive room from 03.04.2012 to 05.04.2012, At the time of Check In they denied me for confirmation of booking as i was having confirmation voucher of make my trip. then the unfriendly guy at the reception gave me a Deluxe Room even after I had paid well in advance (10.03.2012) for executive room, which is costlier than the Deluxe room. in spite of continual follow up for Executive room they denied for the same. I personally feel cheated by such an unprofessional behavior. After all they refuse to give me Bill also and it was very dreadful stay. It has been also observed and we heard that the hotel doing such things with other customers also. Hence it will not be recommended at all from my side.

Don't get fooled by the photos! The place is old, the facade is new!

I would have said, the location is nice, but then there is no view from the room, so it is useless!

The neighbourhood is not nice.

Room floor was not clean! The bath towel was old and soiled! Thank God I had my own towel.

The food served in the room was Ok, but the staff was courteous. There is just one elevator and service staff uses it along with guests and at times the cabin smells of the food that was carried!

Probably would not stay in this hotel again.
