“Convenient stay at chennai”
Reviewed 6 January 2013

We stayed in Chennai for two days. Its location near to Marina beach, not far (only , 2km from the central rly station) and easy access to any part of the city makes the hotel good to stay for any purpose. This could be a very nice hotel, if the staff were a little better and the place a little cleaner and quieter. As we can't have the cake and eat it too, we had to satisfy with the good aspects alone.

Fortunately the food is available at the ground floor restaurant. The typical Chennai South Indian meals and snacks are good but for the waiting time.

Rooms are not posh but just ok to stay, as lot of renovation work was going on at different floors, noise was one thing we had to tell them to stop twice. Bath rooms are notverygood but tolerable, may be due to incoplete upgradation.

This management has taken a daring step to operationailze the hotel with a lot of pending renovation works.

Though we were ok in this hotel there was a billing problem I noticed after we reached Hyderabad. While checking in I was told that the two kids will not be charged as we are taking a 3 beded room, extra bed charges with surcharges and taxes were collected, which we noticed only they rang up to me at Hyderabad asking for some balance(from their view) payments. I had to discuss with the General Manager to relook into the bill and send me back the excess amount collected. However the amount due to me was not returned asper the original charging rates told by the billing counter staff. Whatever the reason I felt bad when I was told that it was a mistake from the staff . Even the G M has simply talked some sweet words but evaded paying anything back.

It is unfortunate that the GM failed to understand the genuine mistake of his staff cannot be the reason for not refunding the excess collected, and didnot realise the loss to the hotel by a dissatisfied customer in the long run. If he had responded positively and refunded the amount to me He would have up held the image of the hotel and this review would have highlighted their respect for genuine customer over money.

Room Tip: IT is safer to check personally before entering a room for stay.

We arrived on 29 December , Check in was shift and house-keeping staff was helpful. Our room was on 3rd floor and offered a nice view of Chepauk stadium and nearby areas. Room were clean and tidy. Television was ok as some channels were distorted.

We ordered food couple of times and room-service was prompt and helpful.

Overall a great experience, will definitely visit again.

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.
