Southern Crest
Ranked #266 of 415 Hotels in Chennai (Madras)
Reviewed 25 January 2014

The hotel is located at a convenient location and is in close vicinity of market, good restaurants. Rooms are quite spacious. Service was average and house cleaning was average.

It's an OK hotel for someone who comes for a short visit.

The hotel is very conveniently located in close vicinity of markets,good restaurants at walk able distance.Rooms are quite spacious,neat and clean.Service is also quiet good.Best part is you do not feel you are not staying in a hotel,but in a spacious house.Breakfast is ok,could have been still better.I have stayed there 2 times and it was by a stroke of luck I found this hotel 1st time and I stayed again on my 2nd visit to Chennai.Will recommend to all types of travelers either on holiday or business trip.

Location,location,location. At the roundabout is the Woodlands vegetarian restaurant which is cheap and good. Just after Woodlands, are the famous silk houses like Nalli's and Kumaran's Nearby is Pondi Bazaar. Also nearby are Ananda Bavan, Saravana Bavan and Krishna sweets for wonderful cheap food. Their sweets are yumm.
The hotel itself is clean enough and good value for money. The rooms are spacious especially the corner rooms. It is true their breakfast is basic but good food is just a stone's grow away from the hotel. Room service was good.

Room Tip: corner rooms are more spacious

Best of all is the location. Situated at Tnagar, central hub of chennai. So commuting to any part of chennai is not a big deal. Rooms are very spacious & clean. 3 Adults stayed in a room & trust me, the rooms are good enough for 3 people with out any doubt (Room 302). Room rent highly reasonable ,booked through travelguru.com, considering the location.
Check in and Check out was very smooth, hardly took anytime.
Points to be improved:
1) Cleanliness in the restaurant. Very disappointed with the quality of food and plates used.(Morning complimentary brk fst was boring after 2 days)
2) A/C was not all that effective in the room,hence had a suffocating feeling at mid night.
3) Wi-Fi was a bit of botheration..ON & OFF most of the times.
4) Staffs could be bit more cleaner , specially people providing room service. (You don't expect people to be sweating while serving the food at room & gives a strong body odor)

These were just the minor corrections that can make it a much better place to stay . Overall my stay was enjoyable in CHENNAI.

Room Tip: For 3 Adults, will definitely recommend Room no 302. Rooms are spacious and very quiet .
