Ka I. Solo travelers Macau, June 15, 2014
Great place to stay over

Beautiful view, comfortable room and friendly staff
It is very hard to find!! Costed me Rs.1000 taxi fare to look for it. Very nice room, although the reception was not that good. Once you entered the room, everything looks new and nice. Friendly staff who provided me dinner location and cooked me breakfast.

Hidden Gem with Sky Top Fountain for Romance

Ambiance, Staff, Surprises
Loved this hotel so much, I did not want to leave it. The roof top garden with little water feature is romantic and draws you in for romantic dinners under the stars. Service is friendly and second to none! I highly recommend this one to anyone staying in Chennai. Just need a driver who knows how to find it. You do not know it's there unless you KNOW it's there! HAHAHA

Cosy,Comfortable ,Clean & Trendy-Value for Money

Staffs,Rooms & Garden
What a cosy room with 4 star amenities.Really clean,comfortable and stylish as well. After crazy traffic & shopping ride in the autos it was so pleasant to step into Step In apartment 7th floor where Jagdish and Shekar is always there to welcome you and help you out on where to shop ,eat and visit. The terrace garden open concept + soothing music is an added steal to this place. Breakfast has 2 options .We stayed with the idlis,vadai ,upama.delicious. Plus point the owner happened to be there and it was a great pleasure meeting you Mr.Raj. Stay here no regrets.can go everywhere with autos.Once again thaks Jagdish and Shekar. Now as everyone said the entrance is nothing like what is in the 7th Floor.U go thru an old apartment building behind a petrol station and up on an old elevator with gate and door. 7thfloor is what I wrote all about above,Pls tell the auto or cab drivers is Near Satya studio (Ram Swathi apartment). behind petrol station only then they will know the place.

nice but hard to find!

Good value for money, close to Greenways road and Krishnamurti Center
It was very pleasant, but very hard to find. Be sure to have the phone number for the taxi driver. Entrance way is dirty, obsure, unmarked, but once there quite nice.

The best place to stay in Chennai !

Very nice room, very sweet staff, very good service and breakfast !
This hotel is very good! The room was very nice and clean. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The terrace was very nice as well with a good city view. The breakfast was the best we have had in India. We liked this hotel very much !

Speedy service, friendly staff

Staff are friendly and accommodating and quick in addressing requests. Another point is the cleanliness of the room.

Good hospitality

Staff,staff and staff

Nice stay for 1 night with accommodating staff

Room was big, good bathroom and breakfast. The staff were really helpful and friendly.
As others have said, this place is a bit hard to find and looks are deceiving from the outside. But once inside, the rooms and the external areas are nicely presented with good quality beds and bedding. Nice modern bathrooms. We only stayed one night and had a young child which the hotel normally does not allow. But in our case, they were incredibly helpful and allowed us to stay and made us feel welcome. The breakfast was very good and we enjoyed chatting to the owner. It definitely was value for money and would recommend it as a short stay.

Value for money- friedly service, clean rooms

Cleanliness, staff, peaceful
Stayed for 5 days. The entrance to the apartments gives wrong impression as the apartment itself is clean. Peaceful at night and the rooms are extra clean. Staff are great and ever helpful. They arranged almost everything we needed. Real value for money. For the price we paid, i don't think we can get a better apartment or even hotel in Chennai with such great service. Thanks again Mr. Jagdish and staffs.
Hotel Feature Tip: If you're traveling, mention to the driver the location of the apartments as Satyam studio, in between the 3 petrol stations in Adyar. The address of the hotel mentions R.A Puram, but if you mention this to the driver, they'll bring you to another part of Chennai. Almost all drivers know Satyam studio since the location is famous.

Best service in 8 months of non-stop travel

Incredible service, clean, comfortable, great value
In 8 months of non-stop travel, staying at hotels overland from Western Europe through to India (3 of those months spent around India itself) Step Inn Serviced Apartments provided the best service, bar none. It topped the 5 star hotels that we enjoyed on special occasions along the way. Each of the staff were attentive, helpful and generous without being bothersome -- smart service. Our room was just about as well appointed as a 5 star hotel too. Modern, well constructed, clean and comfortable. Service that beats 5 star, rooms that match it, at less than 10-20% of the cost. Oh, and very fast wifi with good coverage, for those needing it. This can be very hard to come by.
