Mahalaya Residency
Ranked #182 of 415 Hotels in Chennai (Madras)
Reviewed 10 February 2014

Had to stop for a 11 hour overnight stay in Chennai close to the airport.
This property provides airport pick-up and drop-off as part of the hotel service. One needs to call ahead to make sure they are aware that you are coming. Then you have to wait at the Maggie Counter for taxi pick-up.
The property is nothing outlandish but the rooms are efficient. Airconditioned with comfortable beds. Even a small balcony for the smokers or yoga enthusiasts.
Will probably use the hotel again if I have to stay close to the airport.

Room Tip: Call ahead to confirm taxi pick-up.

Was here for 3 nights (Jan 6-9 ,2014). Hotel pick up was arranged. Check in was smooth and fast.
Room size is good but other amenities like hand towel and toiletries missing (except a small bar of soap).Bathroom not up to the mark.
The down turn is the room service where the staff do not understand the guest needs. The Front office staff is very polite and accomodative.
I checked out at 9 am and my flight was at 8 pm. They arranged a drop in their hotel cab.
Wish the BREAKFAST menu was changed on a regular basis. Seeing the same food every morning is a bit boring.
Overall I would recommend this hotel for a short business visit.

Hotel pick up was fine. Rooms are not that great. There was no room service. When I asked for carrot juice, it was just coloured water.

Rooms and bathrooms are clean, but not classy. Staff are polite and helpful

Complimentary breakfast had fruits, juices idli etc..just normal.

The usp of the hospital is its proximity to the airport

The room I stayed in was clean and spacious , and the room-rate included taxi-service both from and to the airport ( the latter at 2.15 am ) , which is only 2 km away .
Both trips were in the hotel taxi and efficiently organised - the alarm call was made punctually - and the hotel took the trouble to ensure that the independent taxi I used for the evening before my departure had the meter running .
I ask for nothing more from an hotel to use before a 4 am flight .

The hotel is located 5 minutes from the airport and serves mainly as a transit hotel for people arriving or departing the next day.
The rooms are clean and spacious, the bathroom was okay although the warm water took very long to start running.
Staff was friendly, although they forgot to pick me up at the airport as per prior arrangement - which for an airport transit hotel is a problem.
The hotel is located on a busy street near the airport, with a market located approx. 200 m from the hotel for some last minute shopping.
The hotel is a bit overpriced for what it offers but it is a good option for one night to avoid the morning traffic jam when driving to the airport.

I with my family of three stayed at this hotel on the night of 13th Dec 2013 during transit from Mumbai to Port Blair via Chennai. The booking was done via MakeMyTrip Booking ID no. NH210325661450 .The hotel is neat and clean, the beds/bathroom and overall environment reasonably clean and tidy. The best part is its proximity to the airport - hardly 10 minutes of drive at early hours and yet relately affordable prices.

The persons at the reception are also good. The hotel arranged for our pickup and drop to the airport (at 03:30 am) - no hassels the vehicle was always there waiting. Did not take any food in the hotel - hence cannot comment.
