Excellent hotel at a superb location

Posted 14 Dec, 2015

I was to be in Chennai on official work, and my hosts choose Rao's Residency as the place where I would be accommodated. The location was superb with respect to proximity to both my place of work (MIT Chromepet), as well as the airport. The hotel is located bang on the Southern Grand Trunk Road, which has lots of good food joints. An Adyar Ananda bhavan outlet is almost on the other side of the road, and I patronized this for my meals. The hotel itself does not have a restaurant, or a dining hall. The room and attached bathroom were spotlessly neat and clean. The amenities in the room were a bit more as compared to what an ordinary guest house would offer a large and comfortable double Bed, a Split air-conditioner, good lighting, a study area, a large almirah and a small one, with everything done tastefully . . The proximity to the airport was a big plus point as well, so that I was able to come in quickly, and set out quickly. I had come in from Delhi on AI 042, and went back on AI 53. My experience with Rao's residency was excellent, and I will recommend it to fellow travellers to the city. I was to be in Chennai on official work,

Need improvements

Posted 26 Nov, 2015

I was travelling to Chennai for some business trip and I was looking for cheapest hotel near Airport. Hence chosen this Rao's Residency They need to improve on the Cleanliness of the Room. I found it badly organized and smelling smoky when I entered in the Room. I continued there for a night because of it's advantage of near to Airport For food you need to be dependent on the other nearby restaurants.

Good hotel for business people

Posted 14 Nov, 2015

The hotel is good for stay for the middle class who visits frequently for business purpose and also good to stay with family. The room service and housekeeping should be improved. The location is also good. They should also start serving tea & coffee and snakes.

Comfortable room and good facilities

Posted 9 Nov, 2015

Accommodation facility was good, rooms were comfortable, staff behaviour was good but you should focus on the entrance path as it is not well maintained and you should try to change the entrance location if possible. Finally it's a good experience visiting there in the hotel.

Nice staff and lack of food service

Posted 13 Oct, 2015

Good hotel but lack of food service, laundry is not up to mark. WiFi facility not at second floor, hotel staff attitude is so nice and supportive. But outside the hotel there is good choice of food like Balaji Bhawan etc. For a single person room size is too good.

Hotel located near Chromepet railway station and bus stand is walk-able distance. Good food can be outsourced by the room service, many good hotels available nearby like Buhari, Junior Kuppanna, A2B, Sree Balajee bhavan, Faruzzi etc; this is good hotel for long and short stay at affordable cost.

Nice room, with good facility, closer to airport, car parking facility etc, on the high way. Room service facility available. Rooms are neat and clean. Nice non vegetarian and vegetarian hotels are available very close to the hotel. It would be nice if the roads to the hotel are tar roads.
