“Just an average hotel”
Reviewed 11 December 2013

I stayed there from Dec 8-Dec 9. It is an average hotel. The location is good. Walkable distance from the US consulate.

Pros: 24 hour checkin/checkout. Good staff. Good location
Cons: Need maintenance. Rooms are pretty small. The health faucet was leaking and there were no toilet rolls. Was provided one after requesting. Breakfast is just an eyewash. It included either sandwiches or bread toast and tea/coffee.
Sleep was disturbed by the loudspeakers of nearby religious establishments from 4 AM in the morning.

We stayed for Visa purposes. It was in a good location reachable to all possible places. Rooms are not that qualitative but still it is ok and safe to stay . Staff was good enough, rooms are not big enough.

I had booked one room for 2 nights and no extra charges charged. Breakfast was served almost 45 min after order placed. Hospitality was good and almost most of the common needs like toothbrush, shaving kit, soap is provided when you enter the room. Considering it is near to Chennai Railway Central and also near to Egmore and the price is reasonable. Overall, i liked the Sea shell residency and would recommend others to opt for the same. There are two pure Veg hotels one in the same place as the hotel and the other opposite side of the road.

When in a metropolitan city like Chennai, clean and neat Budget Hotels like Sea Shell Residency is available for a fraction of Star Hotel charges, why one should go for star Hotels? In fact a stay at this hotel proves the point. This Hotel is situated in the heart of Chennai in Thousand lights area.The rooms are clean and neat with good food quality and neat service. You can definitely try this hotel in your next visit

Room Tip: any airconditioned room facing the thousand lights
