“Beautiful hotel, great service, food?”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

Told that hotel food in India is great in hotels. Thought I would start with a Taj. Arrived by taxi, greetings and then entered a magnificent lobby by design. Entered the cafe which had a buffet and al la carte dining...choose a la carte. Service was the best ever, professional, pleasant, inquisitive but not overly. Ordered a fish curry that was chewy bites of a grey fish in a tomato sauce...not interesting, not beautiful...not delicious. Did not eat it. ordered a baked yoghurt for dessert that was OK, had a prepared blueberry jam on the side...expected more for a $50. lunch in the food area...had tastier food in less sophisticated places.

Stayed for 4 nights and was looked after very well by the staff. Had a problem with delivery of a parcel stuck in customs and they couldn't have been more helpful. Very attentive and polite staff. Food was very good and the bar staff in the Chipstead bar were great. Lovely cocktails and bar food. Spacious room. Very fast laundry service. Will come here again for sure

I loved my stays at the Taj in Chennai , the staff were fabulous and always willing to help and meet our requirements. The food was very good and staff were always willing to meet personal needs, My room was immaculate the staff who looked after me on a daily basis could not be faulted. I will always have fond memories of my stay and would love to return one day.

Room Tip: Some of the rooms are refurbished but my preference were the traditional rooms which reminded me of...

The first five star hotel in Chennai still retains the edge when it comes to quality of service and thoroughly professional, well trained staff. Thankfully the renovation that's been going on for the last couple of years appears to have been completed giving the interiors a much needed face lift. Rooms are on the smaller side by today's standards but the amenities make up for that. Security can be quite bothersome but needs to be tolerated in the interest of safety. The Golden Dragon at the Taj Coromandel offer what is perhaps the best Chinese cuisine in the city. Overall a pleasant experience that makes the hotel an easy choice despite the newer establishments in the city.

Room Tip: Rooms on the higher floors and away from the lobby are preferable to avoid disturbance from the musi...

The place is loosing its comfort and cleanliness, as always was on executive floor and the moment you walk into corridor you feel you are two decades behind... The rooms are old run down and smelly... The water on wash basis was brown and smelly....

After complaint was moved to another floor a new room that's a normal business room similar to a business hotel nothing luxury about it ...

Love the gym but power shuts few times and attendance is poor...

The hotel happens to be in heart of city so u live through
