Crystal Residency Reviews
It's an average hotel with basic facilities. The locality is good. Good proximity to lot of important places. The food is average though can be improved. The hospitality is good. People and staff are there to guide and help.
Please improve hospitality, and follow the bookings I was told that there was no booking done in my name, but then after providing them with all details which took them around 30 min to identify the booking please maintain the data so that it doesn't happen.
The rooms were nothing like as advertised. Although the bathrooms were clean, the blankets were old. Breakfast was decent but limited. WiFi was good. Staff was friendly and helpful. Stayed here for the purpose of visa.
Poor maintenance, food costs five star hotel but not good just below average, only choose if you have any work in US Embassy, service is ok-ok, Meals cost 200/-(bowl of rice, Dal fry, curry, papad... No curd, no rasam, no sambar, no curries) but biriyani 160/-. I don't understand.
Nice. Good experience.. Will suggest to others. But an old hotel so it is having window AC and no fan is provided. Over all I will give a rating of 3 out 5. Can remodel it. It is way costly than appearance.
I stayed in this hotel for two days. The rooms were not clean. Floor is bad. Tv wont work all time. There is no clears for daily basis. What ever waste you throw in garbage will be there till to check-out. And the front desk people are such a suckers. When I went to settle my final bill they tried to charge for three days. I talked and settled that....Read More
I don't know why these "MAKE MY TRIP GUYS" are advising such low quality rooms without proper enquiry about standard, but these rooms are the WORST I HAVE EVER STAYED. Everything is of low quality and higher cost.
The rooms are just average, and have just one plug point in a time when even train coaches have 5-10. Bathrooms are badly made and have shoddy. Food was poor in quality and quantity. The complimentary breakfast was too little and that too cold. Only reason Crystal Residency exists is because the consulate is close.
I preferred the hotel since it is very close to US Consulate, where I had an appointment for Visa. One of the main services I expected from their brochure is the provision of WiFi. But unfortunately the one provided was not working. So our stay for two days ended up with lot of inconvenience.
This is a great place to stay if your here for the visa interview. Biometric and visa interview is really close. Food and service was also pretty good. These are the only positives. The room is small and shabby. The AC has no regulator. The beds are average. The loo was badly kept. But all in all, it depends on why and with whom you are there. S....Read More
Top Reviews of Crystal Residency
Aptly situated right next to the US consulate and 1. 5 km from the US OFC, stayed in a standard double AC room. Rooms have been renovated with new floor tiles, new split AC. Bathroom were clean with 24 hours water supply. Complimentary breakfast and a la-carte lunch was sumptuous. Can upgrade to 3 star if rooms and bath are made more plush. Lots of hotels closeby on greams road and Nungambakkam. Great Value for money for students.
Not difficult to locate the hotel at Nungambakkam. it's situated at a convenient location very near to the Indian Oil Bhavan. The reception people were quite friendly, the room service was also quite good. If anyone is looking for a single day stay at a budget hotel , definitely I will recommend Crystal even though it's overpriced.
The best thing about the hotel : it's right opposite to the US consulate. You don't need to take an auto or cab for the consulate. The staff is very helpful. If you are new to Chennai and do not know Tamil, then it might be an issue communicating with people. The hotel reception was very helpful in guiding me to the consulate and speaking to the cab guy during the airport drop. Things which I thought could have been better were the Room interior and bedding quality. The photos of standard room do not match which has been shown in makemytrip. The room didn't have a hanger in the cupboard. There were maximum of Tamil channels in the TV. For someone who does not understand Tamil, the TV is a total waste. I would recommend this hotel only for those coming for VISA only.
This is very good option if you are going for VISA interview. US Consulate is just 5 mins walk. It is no way, a holiday hotel. Room is average, just basics. Location is excellent - just on the main road. WIFI is available. Food quality is good. So it has just everything you need when you are going for a VISA interview. Support staff are very nice, help you in every way. I had a very good experience with them.
Impressive, cordial & friendly staff and attendants are added attractions. Had a good experience when considering every aspect of getting accommodation in a prime location of Chennai city starting from the time of check-in until the time of checkout.
