New Woodlands Hotel
Ranked #58 of 402 Hotels in Chennai (Madras)
Reviewed 18 March 2014

I have stayed at Woodlands many times and it is now my first choice when I visit Chennai. The location is great - right on Cathedral Raod, not far from Gemini and Anna Salai, close to Music Academy and other concert halls. The rooms are reasonably clean, breakfast is complimentary, room service is quick, restaurants serve good South Indian vegetarian food. Rates are reasonable, but keep going up every year.

it is the ideal place to stay, if you come for the Chennai December Music Season. But you must book well in advance.

Room Tip: Avoid the rooms on the Savera Hotel side. They can be very noisy at night.

This is a bit old style hotel located on prime location of Radhakrishnan road. But they do have rooms for all budgets. This was our 2nd visit to this hotel & this is located very close to US & British embassies. We stayed in Executive AC room which costed about Rs. 3200 net inclusive of breakfasts & complementary wifi. Room was spacious & clean. While booking ask for rooms in the new wing as these are rooms with all modern amenities & better. The buffet breakfast was good & they have a la carte restaurant as well. The authentic South Indian food is very good and a must try & there is also an option of plenty of good restaurants in this area to choose from. So over all a good centrally located hotel for short trips.

Stayed: March 2014, travelled as a couple

i stayed for a night in this hotel as part of a business trip. in a nutshell, 'this is a very basic hotel, with minimum amenities but worth the money you spend'.
Scaling it on the usual criteria,
Location- Excellent
Food- Excellent ( veg food. But really yummy. The breakfast buffet is limited but what is available is of the best quality and taste)
Parking- Really huge parking space (considering the location, having such a huge parking is just remarkable)
Cleanliness- very good.
In room amenities- Bare minimum
The rooms are old, but maintained decently. You can't expect high rise beds and mattress for INR 2k with AC especially in the center of the city.
Staff are generally courteous. Don't expect high end hospitality!!
As a whole the hotel is a budget friendly one!

For our visa interview at the US Embassy, I with my mum stayed at this old property. There were no issues with respect to the security as the hotel is a very reputed one in Chennai. The restaurant offering south Indian cuisine seems to be very famous as it was packed with customers during lunch and dinner. There is a north Indian restaurant as well. There is a swimming pool available at the property and this seems to be available for guests and outside visitors at an extra cost.

No frills hotel for a comfortable family stay.

Stayed here for 2 nights this week. The rooms are old styled but the plus point is that they are very clean. No musty smells here. For the price that they come for, and for the location the hotel is situated in, it is absolutely value for money. The room service is the fastest that I have ever experienced. And the staff polite. The morning breakfast is again basic and vegetarian but tasty as is the food served in their restaurants. A mandir, a beauty salon, a travel desk and a barber they have it all.

This is quite a rundown property, quite old. When checked in was given a room which was quite old. Asked the same to be changed immediately and was accommodated in the new wing which is good.

However price suddenly went up by a couple of hundred.

Room Tip: Make sure you mention new wing when booking, else first preference is given to the old wing.
