This hotel shelter one of the good place offering a decent bar in Mylapore Area of Chennai. Rates are ok with lots of side dish served along with the beverage s.. Place is neat not crowded and well maintained. Service is good and fast compared to other such kind of places. Sometimes they give some irresistible offers on beverages. Totally a good place to visit.
Shelter hotel is located in the heart of Chennai, Mylapore... very near from the Kapaleshwar Temple, Mylapore and the shopping district! The rooms are a bit small but neat and clean. There's decent parking space available. Overall service can be improved a bit...but a great experience and value for money!
If you like lobbies then look no further; upon walking into this hotel, seeing the lobby, I thought, this is going to be a great stay! The lobby is a piece of work!
However, it ends there; upon entering my room, I stepped into another world; the room being small, depressing and grubby. I asked to see a few more, all the same.
Thus hotel displays the OYO Premium mark, which, among others, promises, nay guarantees, and I quote, 'spotless linen', 'hygienic washrooms'.
Forget it: in all rooms I checked, the linen was stained badly, and the bathrooms even more grubby than the room.
When I asked if they had a clean room, the answer was, no sir, all rooms the same ...
The restaurant was ok-ish, utensils etc. not the cleanest either.
Staff in both restaurant and reception were helpful, if a bit lacklustre.
So one star for the lobby and one for the staff.
Hotel Shelter, located very near to the temples of Mylapore is easy to locate identify and has a good parking space. I stayed here for a day. The rooms are quite good and the service is fine. Not much of greatness nor dullness. Good for a quick and short stay. Food is ok here but there are numerous restaurants offering a variety in and around this hotel So food is not an issue at all.
We had stayed in Shelter Hotel for 2 nights during our trip to Chennai. The hotel is located in a crowded street in Mylapore but we had chosen this since it was close to tourist attractions like Kapileshwar temple, Sai Baba temple, Ramkrishna Mutt, Marina beach, Saint Thomas church, Vivekananda House etc. We liked the spacious lobby and interior of the hotel. Room allocated was small in size since we were total 3 people and after placing extra bed, the room was cramped up. Sleep quality was good and so was complimentary breakfast. Room service needs to improve since in the night plates were not cleared after dinner even after asking.
My overall rating would be 3.5 out of 5.
