melissa from Chennai, India recommends this hotel Posted:  Room Quality: 5/5 Service Quality: 4/5 Dining Quality: 4/5 Cleanliness: 4/5

Location: It's near where I needed to be for my Seminars and Meetings so it was perfect for me. HOwever, I would request the hotel that in the future inform your customers beforehand that the landmark is "Firelights", it took us a while for the driver to find the hotel and it was already late so the added travel time was inconvenient. The locality is good, near the market and it was quiet enough for my taste. Reception: Before coming, we talked to a couple of people, one was very helpful in providing info on how to reach there. The other one was not as helpful and promptly hung up the phone after thinking he is done answering our queries, which was not. We were also requesting for a pickup from the train station which they said they do not provide. However, they did offer some info on how and where to get the cab. When we arrived, nobody came to greet and help us with our luggages. Because of these first impressions, I didn't have high hopes with the hotel. Room and amenities: I was pleasantly surprised when we were directed to our room. It had all basic requirements, the room was pleasant and modern. Bed and pillows ultra soft. AC, tv, and heater all working great. They provide a fridge, dining area, microwave and cutlery right outside the room to share with the other room, which was perfectly fine. It was homely and sweet. Room Service/Customer Service: The seemingly most hardworking guy there "Nikki" was friendly, very polite and was anxious to provide us with all we require. And he always came with a smile and a conversation if you want it. The center manager (sorry I forgot your name), was very helpful when we needed info about the nearby market and helped us book for a Pondicherry trip. He even went as far as called the taxi service for us and inquired about the costs and had the hotel driver match that price, with the assurance of the driver's integrity. These all made up for my previous disappointment. Food: They offer complimentary breakfast. It was homely and good. HOwever I do think they have basically the same menu, so if you are looking for variety you may want to check some other restaurants, there are a lot of choices any way. Overall, I liked the food and was satisfied for my early morning food requirement. Overall: I say this is a quiet little hotel for those who are looking for good rooms and amenities at a lower cost. Service is overall great except for a few bumps along the way, again I would say Nikki made it a pleasant stay for us. Recommendation: I would recommend it to anyone, even my husband who travels a lot. I will definitely come and stay here again whenever I am in Chennai. If I can make any suggestion to the hotel, I would request them to provide pick up esp for women who may be arriving late in the night. And for those whose train/flights leave very early, it would be great if breakfast can be provided even at an extra cost and that the reception should be 24/7, so we wouldn't have to wake them up to check out.

Nice, clean and comfortable for short stays Nice, clean and comfortable for short stays

by DGG101 on December 20, 2014

I stayed for 3 days on a short trip to Chennai. The rooms are little small but clean and comfortable. Location wise it's pretty close to T. Nagar Market. Breakfast has regular South Indian fare, fruits and bread etc. The staff is courteous, friendly and helpful. There are common areas of each floor with TV, fridge, kitchenette and couches. The free WiFi provides decent speed as well. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a short stay place near US Consulate, T. Nagar etc.

Perfect for short stay especially for corporate travellers Perfect for short stay especially for corporate travellers

I stayed at Smart Haven on September, 2014. My stay was for 1 night and its a part of my company preferred accommodation for the visitors travelling to Chennai, especially for those who want to visit US Consulate. Its a service apartment with three floors. The location is good as it is near to T- Nagar and other main parts of the city. The hotel is about 30 min drive from Chennai Airport on a normal Monday afternoon. I got a double bedroom in a unit which has a common room cum kitchen. Each unit has 3 double bedroom, air conditioned. The common areas are air conditioned as well. Kitchen has a fridge, microwave, coffee/tea makers with creamer, sugar etc, safe drinking water etc. The bedroom is spacious with an attached bathroom. You will get a fine mattress with duvets and covers, and sufficient furniture such as a neat and good office table and chair. I found the towels are clean and fresh and bathroom was clean too. They offered a complimentary breakfast with a nice spread of toasts/eggs, South Indian dishes, and sufficient beverages such as juices, tea and coffee. For any lunch or dinner, they will provide you with a couple of door delivery food service providers and based on your preference, you can order the food (North India, South Indian, Chinese, Continental, Pizza etc.). The food was delivered for me in about 20 minutes. The staffs are helpful and friendly, and you feel in a professionally managed stay. You can find main shops in walkable distance and you will get auto/taxi just outside the hotel. Or you can contact the reception for any additional travel/food requirements. I recommend this place for leisure travellers as well. Nice and safe place for family and prices are reasonable.

Clean and Perfect! Clean and Perfect!

I felt like home during my stay. locating the hotel is not a tough task as you can find it easily on goggle maps or just call the hotel they will provide the directions.

Date: 13 April 2014 Room No.: 102 Considering Early reviews on TripAdvisor and other portals I decided to book this hotel. It was surely a right choice. Since I was travelling on business purpose and as i needed to provide a professional cum homely ambiance to my clients I choose this hotel. We held our discussion at dormitory as long as we could with full privacy. It was really great experience. Even though its situated in prime land mark area (5 lights), my clients and even local pizza guy found difficult to locate it. But you can depend on Google Maps to locate this property. Though it is projected as business hotel, i think it can be ideal for family and couples too. PROPERTY: It has total 3 floors and each floor contains 6 Rooms. (A dormitory is shared for every 3 rooms) Each room has a AC unit, Satellite TV, Wardrobe, Study Table and a chair. Bathroom was clean and it has separate shower area. Each room has stand alone electric geyser. Dormitory/Kitchen is equipped with 4 burner Gas Stove, Micro-oven, Refrigerator, Electric Kettle, Basic Cookeries, AC, High Dining Area, 3 Couch and a table. It also has Conference hall at the ground floor with good amenities. POSITIVE SIDE: Staffs are very helpful and generous. They addressed my every request immediately. Rooms & Dormitory were clean. Amenities like refrigerator, micro-oven, Gas stove were working fine. NEGATIVE SIDE: AC at Dormitory attached with my room was not working. Upon my request, staff allowed me to use 2nd Floor dormitory for the meeting with my clients. Satellite Televisions at dormitory was running out of subscription. Water pressure in Bathroom was low. Breakfast served was average and can be improved.

more of corporate guest house more of corporate guest house

by Prem_16 on January 29, 2014

This is actually more of corporate guest house and not hotel. i mistook to be a hotel. All you find will be folks from some or other corporate undergoing a training and staying here. rooms were neat and clean though. Our room had some smell, and they changed it quickly on request. It serves only breakfast ( not something to talked about , very regula south indian breakfast). you would get better hotels at this price. suited more for corporate training or workshops ( with no fancy frill )

by Pratik57 on October 24, 2012

Demo Trip Location: From Anju Villakku, go down straight uptill the dead end of the road and you will find this property on your right side; mostly goes un noticed as it gets mixed up with neighbour hood. Its is opposite one Andhra Mess. Food: one can try out Rathna Cafe, which is about 600m ahead of the property Ensure that TV is in working condition Ensure that room is touched up with room freshner Ask for complimentary toiletries
