Aruna has been undergoing a makeover since over an year now and converting into a Fortune property...but sadly no work seems to be happening on that front. The rooms are clean, location is good and the breakfast is at par with all 4 star hotels in the city. One of the best 2 reminder service available anywhere :) But all... More

Recently stayed for four nights whilst visiting son in Chennai. We were very impressed with the hotel, the rooms are spacious, clean and well equipped. All reception and concierge staff were extremely polite, helpful and friendly. The beds were very comfortable but the glass walled bathroom was a bit of a shock. Breakfast was disappointing, the food was poor quality... More

I booked this hotel for my parents who were coming from the UK to visit in January 2013 but agonized over whether to book it based on past reviews here. Booking a bad hotel is one thing, booking it for your parents on their first trip to India is another. The hotel is in the perfect location for me but... More

Been traveling to Chennai for many years now but hadn't seen this gem before. Good rooms, clean and perfect for the business traveler. Watch it, though - only king and double beds, no twin beds. The breakfast is average and the food I tried wasn't the best, but otherwise this is a perfect place to stay in when you're down... More

I have stayed at this hotel at least 5 times(a week each) and have found that it to be real value for money with a no-frills approach. The best that I liked about the hotel is the service staff for in-room dining. Personally, I find this a good hotel to recommend in its segment!

Spend only 1 night. Room was clean and minibar had cold soft drinks. Tried the pool in the morning and it was a little worn out. Breakfast was disappointing with a very small selection. The gym was small but suitable if you were the only using it. There is a good Treadmill.

Our party of 12 stayed here from 07th to 11th August. Was thoroughly impressed with the value and service from a 3-star hotel. A big plus is that most of the staff understand basic English. The unlimited free Wi-Fi was an added benefit. Good cation, good value. Will recommend.
