    Exceptional! Will stay here again for sure”

    We stayed in Raintree Hotel only for 1 night but we had a really nice experience staying in this hotel. The location is in central Chennai, in a really nice neighborhood. The second i reached the hotel I knew that this hotel must be good. The building looks new so it gives a new look vibe which gives you comfort feeling. The staff was really agile and quick in helping us unloading the luggages from the car. The lobby is spacious, the receptionist and other staff are helpful and friendly. Our room just perfect. It has everything we need. It was clean, spacious, has a bathrobe, bed is comfortable and big. The bathroom is clean, has a sprayer for cleaning and has a privacy blind which is really cool! The breakfast is also great! Lots of good variety of food, staff is handy, food is great, and they use Le Creuset pots for their food!! Top notch. Overall, it is very recommended to stay here and we surely will stay here again every time we visit Chennai. Good job Raintree!

    Indeed a nice hotel . Top notch service and quality. However, the tax are super high. I found this is only hotel has such a high taxes. I booked 2 rooms via agoda and the price was reasonable. When we dine in at the hotels restaurant the taxes are close to 70%. Understand that we are not locals but you ripped us really bad. Ive stayed in the other rain tree but it was not as bad as this one. The restaurants are really pricey as well. No explanation given when asked as well. All the restaurants and in room dining price are over rated.i had my mom n brother in this trip and we stayed in couple of good hotel and this is the only ones had different range of tax.

    The room was great, and so was the staff. The only thing that I didn't appreciate, was that I found the extra services such as air port transfer, laundy and eating lunch and dinner at the hotel were overpriced. Other than that, I would recommend this hotel and would like to stay here again. The staff was really efficient, and it was clear that they wanted to provide with the best possible service.

    The staff at this beautifully furnished hotel go out of their way to make you feel welcome. Rooms are lovingly furnished and spacious and the whole hotel is well maintained and scrupulously clean. The rooftop pool is a real bonus; the rooftop bar perfect for a sundowner, there is a good selection of restaurants and cuisines and the breakfast buffet is lavish. The true marks of a world-class hotel! The only thing missing is a spa. The companion hotel on Anna Salai has one and it is possible to visit there,but at the time of my stay this was still being set up.

    Great New Hotel in Southern Chennai”

    Good location. Walking distance from TTK Road. Near Mylapore (Hindu Kapaleeshwarar Temple and St. Thomas Catholic Cathedral). As it is in the south, traffic is avoided when driving to the airport, which is also in the south. Relatively near T Nagar shopping area and the T Nagar Bus Terminus. Far from both Egmore and Main Train Stations. Hotel looks new. Room is in excellent shape. Breakfast buffet is great. They have bacon. (After 2 weeks in South India, we appreciated this.) Staff went the extra mile. The hotel taxi is way too expensive so we asked for an alternative. They booked an Uber for us to the airport.

    DRY STATE”

    Chennai is a dry state. If you like a drink you are allowed to drink at the Raintree however, happy hour, 215 rupees a bottle, is from 3pm to 7pm and, on beers, only British Empire available which is the worst beer you could ever hope to put down your throat. Hotel Taxis are 3 times the rate and the dry cleaning is way too expensive. The hotel is clean and is so relaxing after the experiences of Chennai. I would stay here again if I didn't have to care about money. Thank you Raintree as you were a good stay for me.

    Great base for exploring Chennai”

    reat oasis for exploring the Chennai. Rooms are slick and in immaculate condition. Staff was eager to please. Restaurant was excellent (ask for South Indian coffee instead of the weak brewed coffee). Only area for improvement I saw was that the pool area had only two loungers (though the pool wasn't very popular). Hotel is a 10-15 minute walk to Mandaiveli station if you're interested in riding the local city trains; otherwise there are tuk tuks always waiting nearby.

    I thoroughly enjoy my stays at the raintree hotel, everything is perfect from start to finish. Check in/check out is fast, room standard and general hotel standard is very high given the modest price. The gym is good as is the pool, and is generally very quiet meaning you have the place to yourself. There are two restaurant choices, with the rooftop restaurant and bar serving local and western food,and chap chay on the ground floor an asian fusion restaurant serving stir fry dishes. all in all, a faultless place.

    Very nice hotel. I stayed 4 nights although I did have to pay additional for a extension since my flight was late in the evening. Everything went as expected. I really enjoyed my stay there. The only hiccup was the pick up from the hotel where I could not find the hotel staff although I was looking for someone from the hotel. I was advised later on checkin that they did turn up at the airport to pick me up. The hotel was new and clean and the staff was generally helpful. Its also quite centrally located with good proxity to the airport and the main tourist sites in Chennai.

    Pleasant week in Raintree”

    Enjoyed my 8-night stay at Raintree. Nice view of Chennai's greenery from my room, which was reaonably sized. bathroom well equipped, but storage space rather limited and TV reception erratic. Breakfast was superb, staff courteous and helpful, but housekeeping could be better--- coffee/tea supplies not replenished on some days, triple top-up of shampoo but no top-up of body wash etc. Nothing which can't be rectified with training. Location is superb. Would definitely return.
