“Beautiful Rooms”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 March 2011

Spent a week on business. 4th floor renovated rooms are world-class, similar to Ritz in Singapore. 2 rooms, very nice decor. Staff was gracious and very friendly. Morning breakfast in top-floor had great views. Food was mix of English, Indian, Chinese... Custom made English breakfast was very good, definately better than buffet. Dinner in same restaurant was fine, not outstanding. The Indian restuarant on the 2nd floor was genuine Tandoor and was very nice, much better than top floor. Room Service was prompt and very good.
Location was great for access to Marina Beach and shopping.

Quiet, clean. upper rooms are not renovated but I hear the new rooms on the 4th floor are nicer. Breakfast is good, service is attentive. Pool is small but it works. Odd hours for a massage.

We left the hotel with mixed feelings. Its a nice hotel in a good central location. It has a nice and friendly staff,they really do their best - even overdo it sometimes. But the place badly needs some renovation and is overpriced regarding the actual equipment. The bathrooms have marble but are damp (mold around the bath)( no window nor filtered air in there. ) The Shangai restaurant upstairs also really needs some updated decoration and gave us some worries about hygiene - we got some stomach upset after having some salad. But the worse is the air conditioning. Does it carry mold or germs ? We don't know. But we got a terrible cold /or flu overnight. Could not stop sneezing and got a very bad cough. This is a real health problem that should be taken care of by the management.

This place was beautiful throughout, and my room was huge and extremely nice; more like a small suite. Walk-in shower, always a plus, and all conceivable amenities/facilities.

Had a beautiful colonial feel to it, all public spaces very pleasant, staff warm, welcoming and helpful, and a fantastic Peshwari restaurant. A pleasure in every way.

Usual gripe in nearly all my hotel reviews: paying for internet access; how come hotels charge us for this essentially fixed-cost item? Answer: because they can. Why don't they charge extra for running water and lighting? One day this will seem as unacceptable as smoking on planes. It was expensive as well. Also only appeared to be accessible from a laptop by cable (instructions say you can go wireless once logged on, but try and do this from an iPad, either in your room or in the public spaces). Reception told me it was possible by calling IT, but why? Should just be easy and obvious - this is not rocket science in this day and age. Even budget hotels have wi-fi everywhere (and usually free!)

I stayed at the Chola from Jan 1st till the January 11th 2011. It is a great hotel with fantastic staff!!!. I was very impressed with the staff and being able to accomodate my needs for the family. Breakfast is great in the Shanghai Club. Mr. Balaji and staff were excellent. When I come to Chennai I will only stay at the Chola. Thanks again, Fareed Ahmed. NY.

Staff were nice and room was basic but did what was needed because I didn't spend too much time there. Room service was a dream though as I would finish up work at approx 2am each night and could get a full dinner and whatever i wanted. Bottled water was provided each day in the room which is a must there.

Fantastic hotel. Had a great meal at the Indian restaurant - dal and meats are to die for -and fantastic Kathi rolls from the coffe shop. Great breakfast. Love the pool - great setting. Everyone at the hotel was so polite and helpful. Great rooms, super clean and comfortable. Good sized gym with all the machines and weights you need. Centrally located. Concierge will help you get anywhere you want to go. I will be back!
