new clean modern hotel, best breakfast in India”

best breakfast, great bathroom, very comfortable, very clean and well designed hotel and rooms

This hotel was superb with the best international buffet breakfast in India although the buffet dinner is not as good and not really worth the money. The design of the rooms is modern but using the best materials with surfaces of marble, stainless steel and glass. Unfortunately, much of Chennai is being torn up to build a metro system and walking out of the front of the hotel is almost impossible as the wide road in front, Anna Sellai, is partially blocked off and becomes one-way as the metro system is being built. This is not the fault of the Raintree Hotel, but the only way in or out is by car, taxi or three wheeler.

Simply suprising and fantastic!”

Food, food, food and fantastic service from check-in all the way to check out and airport drop off.

My wife and I enjoyed every moment staying at this hotel. Firstly, I need to congratulate the staff for excellent service. Always genuinely friendly and helpful. They all know what they are doing and you can tell there is great team work and common sense. The food at the newly opened Madras restaurant and the room service menu, is excellent. We ended up just ordering food from both. We have been to Chennai many times, and the food from this hotel is far tastier then any local restaurants. Staying at this hotel, just added to our fantastic experience in Chennai. Their gymnasium, has great equipment. Most importantly, they have enough equipment, so you're not waiting around for the treadmill. They have a dedicated staff member in the Gym room, to assist with weights, towels, drinks etc. I have already recommended this hotel to my parents, as I know they will enjoy the excellent breakfast buffet as we did.

Convenient location and clean room”

Location, cleanness and staff service

I stayed there from Feb 1 through Feb 6. The location is conveniently located in the very center of Channai. You can get to almost all places of Chennai city in about than 20 mins, unless you need to move during rush hours. The rooms and all common places are very clean. The staff are well spoken in English , and are helpful. Like all decent hotels in India, the inside and outside of the hotel are like two different worlds. You see well dressed international and local travelers inside the hotel, and poor and seedy people in dusty streets outside.

Raintree Hotel is one of the best hotel in the center of Chennai. The staff is very kind. The swimming pool, the gym on the roof are well equiped and very nice. Food is also very good (especially the breakfast buffet) If you have noisy neighbours, noise can be a problem because rooms are not so well isolated.

It was a refreshing experience in Chennai though a short one. The hotel staff were helpful and flexible especially, Mr Harish, I believe. He presented a lunch and dinner buffet package which was value for money and my family took it. The rooms were very clean and the amenities such as the pool side and the SPA were welcoming. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone who is looking for an affordable yet enriching stay in Chennai.

The Raintree Annasalai has all of the amenities, and room quality is good. Bed was very comfortable. Buffet as expensive but lot of choices. Breakfast was good. Wifi was excellent. Don't stay on 2nd floor on weekend if the hotel is hosting a function as it can be noisy. My room smelled very musty at first but the smell dissipated during my 2-day stay. Laundry was excellent and staffs very attentive.

A very pleasant & relaxing stay!”

Even though the hotel is located in the midst of the hustle and bustle of T-nagar & Annasalai, once you enter the hotel it is very relaxing and quite. Although its well suited for the business traveler, the relaxing ambiance & comforts makes it equally good for leisure travelers too. The hotel overall is clean & hygienic. The rooms are very clean & nice and have all the amenities expected in a star class hotel room. The highlight of the hotel is their excellent & delicious breakfast buffet!! The spread is wide ranging with a menu to suite every palate. We especially thoroughly enjoyed the excellent patisseries. With their friendly, polite & professional staff and excellent food, there's no hesitation in recommending this hotel to anyone and would certainly love to come back.

We were there in Chennai last week. Booked this hotel via agoda. Check-in was smooth. Staffs at reception were professional and knowledgeable. I was awed by the elegance of the room. Washroom was maintained well. Shower was super good. They have 3 restaurants, Madras a south Indian cuisine ...fine dining, The Kitchen and the other Up North which we didn't go. Staffs were exceptionally well mannered and professional. Food was delicious. Bars like Madera for more relax time and The High is on the roof terrace. Excellent hotel. Totally no regret. Housekeeping was super fast. I can't think of any negativities. T Nagar is just 5mins drive away. Doormen were polite and friendly!

A sour taste to the experience”

I booked two rooms for stay from 1st - 4th December, 2018. Although we found the facilities and food very good and the staff polite and very helpful, the experience soured at the end of our stay. I extended the stay of one of the rooms up to 9:00 pm on 4th December as our flight out was at midnight. I had confirmed this with the hotel in advance before arriving in Chennai, at reception upon checking in and on the day itself. We were charged one day's rate for this to which we agreed. Despite this, I received a number of repeated calls to our room asking when we would check out. It felt like we were being chased out despite being charged a day's rate for the room! Whether we would choose Raintree again when we next visit is questionable for this reason alone.
