"Taj Connemara - Memories of another day"

7.0/7
Posted 2 months ago

This is a real city oasis, our favorite Chennai hotel by far, with discreet, efficient service yet radiating an atmosphere of leisure in this otherwise strictly business city. This time we had an early check in, really too early, and when we saw Devendar waiting at the exit, all smiles and genuine warmth, we were in gay abandon. After winding the r....

"Classic hotel with classic appearance & service"

6.8/7
Posted 7 months ago

Everything is classic about this hotel. Right from outside appearance to the minute details including service. The hotel is spread in a big area giving ample space to the guests. There are enough greenery inside and outside the hotel for you to relax and spend quality time. The lobby is really breathtaking. The wooden look everywhere gives the rich and relaxing feeling. There are gardens everywhere. While walking in the lobby, you find the greenery where you would like to spend time rather than going to room. Some rooms have balcony with garden, which is amazing. The rooms are excellent. Very traditional look still modern. All amenities provided including the daily kits. Mini bar included in the rooms. There are a number of restaurants in the hotel. I liked the Indian one, which serves variety of Indian dishes. The rewards program i. e. Taj Inner Circle does not provide much opportunity to redeem the points though like other hotels. So, if you are also looking for rewards points, probably you will be disappointed, if you want to use the points for merchandise of your choice.

"Good place - recommended for stay for any occassion"

6.3/7
Posted 3 years ago

After checking in, when I was being escorted to the room, I was informed that this property is 160 years old! Definitely does not look that old, but one can make out that the architecture is definitely not modern. The service is typical of Taj - had the same service I had experienced at other Taj resort type properties, although this property was not a resort, but a city hotel. Overall, an excellent place to stay. As with any other Taj hotel, check in and check out was a breeze. Typical Taj hospitality all over - right from front desk to house keeping to staff everywhere. As others have pointed out, the layout is odd - so many twists and turns from the looby to the elevators! And if you take the wrong turn, you end up in the wrong wing, and you have to retrace the entire way back to the lobby and start all over again through a different route. Had the misfortune of ending up in the wrong wing a couple of times with no clue as to how to find my room! Luckily came across some staff on both occassions, and they were extremely helpful and escored me back to the room. But the layout needs some change to make it more friendly. A tip - remember if you were escorted to your room from the left side of the front desk or the right side! Bathroom fittings had some salt deposits - possibly the effect of hard water. That is a bit odd, as I would have expected them to keep in spic and span as in other Taj properties I have visited. Unlike other Taj properties I have stayed in, this property does not have a water spray near the WC - that is again a bit odd in India. I have come across a few five star hotels in India not providing a water spray near WC, but this is the first time I have observed this in a Taj hotel. We were on a second floor room, but the view had nothing to talk about - it faced the parking lot and the road. I did not ask for an upgrade, as I was on a business trip and expected to spend most of daytime outside the hotel. But considering that the location is in the heart of the city, with malls and office complexes nearby, the noise level inside the hotel was relatively low - I found it quite peaceful. The restaurant service was excellent. Breakfast was part of the package, and had dinner at odd times in the coffee shop. I have to say that food was almost as good as other Taj resort type hotels I have been to. I have to insist on "almost" - as food was a shade less tastier. But absolutely nothing to complain about - very good food. Could not try out the gym or the spa due to lack of time.

"Located at center of the city with good meals"

6.6/7
Posted 6 months ago

Vivanta by Taj - Connemara is one of the well-known hotel and popular too. I like this hotel, mainly it's easily reachable. It's located in the center of the city, you can reach any destination within 20 to 30 mins, and Express Avenue Mall, Alsa Mall, Spencers Plaza and lots of other shopping malls are there nearby Vivanta - Connemara. About food, Oh my god, it's just fantastic and mouth watering. Particularly "Mid Asia - midnight buffet" is fantabulous. The receptionists and all other representatives really kind. Coming to the room and amenities, you can get everything you want, the room will be very neat and luxuries. And one more thing, its very nearby to one of the largest and oldest library (Connemara library) in the world, and the museum, the advice from me for the travelers is, please visit those place, if you stay in Vivanta by Taj - Connemara. Its just 5 mins from the hotel. The only glitch is Vivanta by Taj - Connemara is little expensive (but it's worth).

"Good hotel with nice food"

5.8/7
Posted 8 months ago

The hotel is very good and the other services like food drinks is very nice. Swimming pool also very nice, it was just behind of my room, surrounding room resident can easily. The problem I faced that the Wi-Fi signal strength wasn't sufficient and less people who can speak or understand Hindi. The quality of food and drinks very good. Front office very helpful and can speak Hindi also and Tamil also. One more thing is that the pub place is very less. Otherwise, hotel is good.
