Testimonials (Atithi Devo Bhava - "Guest is God")
In feb we came to chennai for lasik check-up in shankar netralaya, we selected Hanu Residency because it is very nearer to jkc shankar netralaya. We are so satisfied with the Services.we feel like Home , staff is too gud very supportive. Food is just like Home. We will definitely choose again.
We stayed here for over a week with our extended family for my sister’s wedding. The staff did a wonderful job of looking after us and were always prepared for the variously timed arrivals and departures of our guests. They helped us arrange taxis to and from the airport and answered all our queries always with a smile and a helpful answer. The rooms very clean and well presented and the food was excellent. Our family of 4 stayed in the suite which was perfect for our wedding preparation as we had lots of space, an ironing board and iron, washing machine, fridge and dressing area which all came in handy. Above all, we felt safe and comfortable in the property.
Nirupama and her staff also helped us organise a henna party on the rooftop for my sister. The event was a hit and everyone loved the decorations, the atmosphere, the food and the service.
My only suggestion is perhaps they can create a little card or map showing the directions to Hanu Reddy from the main road – it took several attempts before we were familiar with the area to direct auto drivers.
Thankyou Nirupama, Ramesh and Ranjan and all the staff at Wallace Gardens for giving us such a pleasant and welcoming stay in Chennai. You helped us feel at home and thankyou for checking in on us and making sure we were comfortable and that everything was running smoothly. We will definitely stay here the next time we are in Chennai.
My sister and I (both in our 70′s) stayed for four days upon our arrival in India. The quiet location, availability of good breakfast options, and AC in the room all aided in adjusting to the time change and climate (coming from Philadelphia in the USA in winter!). Moreover, the staff were very, very helpful to us, answering questions and assisting with placing phone calls, etc. Hanu Reddy, Wallace Gardens was a good choice and our overall experience there was quite pleasant.
My extended family of 15 people stayed in this residences for a week and we all have nothing but praise to all staff members for the wonderful service we received. Rooms and bath rooms were very clean and neat. We had a function in connection with my daughter’s wedding on the roof garden. Staff did the decoration which was very beautiful and organised the food for about sixty people. Everyone loved the food. Staff did the booking for taxis etc.
We will go straight to Hanu Reddy when we next visit Chennai.
This is a small, quiet hotel surrounded by trees. We stayed 3 nights in a pleasant, large de-luxe room on the 1st floor. The veranda is a real bonus. The staff is always smiling, helpful and friendly. The included in the price breakfast is excellent. Although a little difficult to find, HRR is a little heaven in busy Chennai, not far from Fort St George (a must visit for history lovers) and Marina Beach. We would definitely stay there again.
Not much design hotel … , but very proudly to recommend.
The food is PerrrrrrFect! The price is very cheap.
The staff are very helpful and mindful. The room is big enough to feel relax and comfort. The bathroom is also big and clean. It is a small hotel, so there are not many people. I had a homely and friendly stay here.
Stayed for 4 days. Enjoyed the breakfast. Good staff and service. Rooms are clean. Challenge – Distant from public transport. Had to haggle with auto drivers. Transport can be arranged by staff. Plug adopters available.
The staff was amazing, they will attend to you every need no matter what. You’re more than a guest, you are a rock star. I’ve never been treated so well in my life. Breakfast is great every morning. Very good selection for other meals. The bathrooms are beautiful. Rooms are clean and comfortable. In a quiet shaded location. Would definitely recommend. Only gripe would be a little faster WiFi, but it was still decent.
I am staying here from past few months now and I must say I absolutely love this place. The people are so nice and treat me very well. The owner(, the staff everyone is so caring that you don’t feel stranger. The boys are wonderful. Specially Das, Abhishek , Manoranjan , Ashok.
I would seriously recommend this to everyone. The location is just perfect and you get the Privilege to be Rajni Sir’s and Amma neighbour as well
Thanks to my extended family for treating me and my wife so well
Hanu Reddy truly spoke to our hearts. It was a peaceful sanctuary amidst the hustle and bustle of Chennai. The staff welcomed us as though we were family and have now cared for us for two wonderful stays. The meals were made with love and served in a homely environment.
The accommodation was most comfortable, clean, tidy – we loved the special elephant on our bed Ashok!! It was such a welcome gift on our second visit.
Thank you to the whole Hanu Reddy family for making us feel so at home in the heart of Chennai.
Until next time!
Everything from the staff to the facilities here are excellent. The operators of this residence go above and beyond to make sure their guests are satisfied. Myself and the other people I stayed with could not have been more pleased with our experience. I highly recommend Hanu Reddy Residences.
The place is centrally located and very safe. Rooms are big, neat and well serviced. Complimentray breakfast is good….however, can improve a bit in terms of a quicker service. free internet is quick and reliable. TV channels are plenty. Reasonably priced for the services provided. The owners take personal interest to serve all guests…that is great!
Overall, a place worth exploring when in chennai next.
Centrally located, well-furnished, very well managed, clean service apartments. Complimentary breakfast and room service were good and rather convenient because the apartments are situated in a quiet, beautiful residential area with no eateries around.
Hanu Reddy was a delight. It was quiet, serene, comfortable, clean and very centrally located.
To start with Nirupama, the hands on manager is a star! Her personal care and warmth shine through, as you stay in Hanu!
Mine was a business meeting and it was a perfect place to have a small, connected and intense business meeting. The hall and services were very good. The staff were amiable and very cooperative.
A definite turn on is the open air buffet South Indian breakfast. And they provide the menu you ask for in business meetings (hoping the same with personal stays) with the warmth and smile of tamil hospitality. Rooms are spacious, clean and the surroundings are also very clean and nice ambience/decor.
A definite come back place for me…
I stayed in Hanu Reddy Apartments for a week in January. These apartments are located in a very central location in Chennai – and in a posh residential area. It is truly a home away from home. The management, in particular Ms. Nirupama, the manager, and the staff are wonderful and go out of their way to make you feel comfortable.
The breakfast (included in the price) is superb – especially if you like south Indian food. The staff also go out of their way to accommodate special dietary needs. The rooms are well maintained and located in a very tranquil surrounding.
The apartments is situated in a posh residential area so it’s peaceful surroundings. The rooms are big with comfortable beds and all necessary amenities. Rooms and public spaces are clean and well maintained. Their garden seating offers food which is well made with fresh ingredients but you need to order your food in advance. The breakfast is limited to South Indian items or continental. Staff is pleasant and helpful. Important places like Mylapore, T Nagar are closely for any visit to market or the main temple. We will definitely return to stay here on our next visit.
My husband and I stayed at the Hanu Reddy Residences, in Poes Garden, and we were delighted with everything from start to finish.
From the time when I called from Canada to make the booking, – the response time was very quick from when I left messages, which truly impressed me, up to the time of arrival and then check out, the services were great and efficient.
The owners personally ensure that all guests are comfortable, request any feedback, and ensure that your requests for breakfast, lunch and dinner are met. The Residence staff are very polite, and always willing to help you, more than the expected norm. The chef who normally makes the breakfast, also obliges to requests for breakfast – for example, my husband requested for ‘Salty Pongal’ one day, and he happily complied. The breakfast that is included in the price is sumptuous, and consists of a variety of dishes, including cereal and toasts for those not wanting to have a typical south indian breakfast.
The rooms are clean and well maintained and any requests for extra linen, pillows etc. are immediately provided. I have to say that I was quite impressed with the wi-fi quality and speed in the rooms and in the building, including the outside dining area.
With regard to the hospitality of the Management, I cannot say enough – they are the most gracious hosts, generous with their time, approachable and one of the nicest family that I have ever met. Their personal attention to the care and requests of customers are heard and met, and I should say that the grounds the Residence exists is the most amazing – i.e. covered with lots of trees, plants and shrubs, including the terrace. The grounds were cleaned often by the staff, and so were the terraces, which was conducive to doing Yoga as well.
There are a number of long-term guests staying there from different parts of the world, which says a lot for their hospitality and the management of the residences.
I would highly recommend this property for people who are looking for a place that is like home away from home, and will be staying there again when I do go to Chennai.
I wanted to attend the Chennai December Season (2013) and was considering various properties in Chennai. My pick (gladly) was Hanu Reddy Residences in Poes Garden. The property was close by (some even walking distance) to The Music Academy, Narada Gaana Sabha, Kamarajar Arangam.
As for the property itself, the place offers you some peace and quiet amidst serence environment, green lush trees, beautiful lawn with a smiling Buddha. I checked in at 4AM in the morning, and as i had informed the reception of my late check-in, they ensured someone waited for my arrival. I stayed at there for 6 days and enjoyed every moment of my stay. The staffs were courteous and ensured each and every need was taken care of. The breakfast is something that you would get at home, and i cannot forget the Paranthas i got on a Sunday, soft and tasty. Only one suggestion for improvement would be – toiletaries to be replenished timely. Overall great value for money, kudos to Ms Nirupama who manages the place.
Chennai is a city of Old World charm and Hanu Reddy Residences remind you of such time and beauty. Though I grew up in Chennai and have a family home, I usually stay at hotels due to work and meetings. In my recent trip to Chennai I had this chance to stay at Hanu Reddy Residence (HRR) for the first time with my wife and son as they were on a holiday mood and the stay was overwhelming. Clean large sized rooms, nutritious breakfast and quick service. Besides any good point I can write about HRR, they make your stay feel as home away from home. You wake up with birds chirping and pleasant aroma of flowers around, soothing music during the evenings, you can have your own party in terrace and there are other guests with whom you can chat over a cup of coffee in casual pace. Technically this is a hideaway resort in centre of the city. No high funda Jazz or fancy hotel feel. A convenient residence for family and business or solo. I strongly recommend HRR to all.
I was here to attend a friend’s wedding. We were a large group of 20+ that stayed here. The stay was absolutely pleasant. I checked in at 4 AM – and the staff were friendly and helpful. The rooms were spacious and the bathrooms were very modern. I had a special request of getting a suit drycleaned through a external service provider- was handled very promptly.
Special mention of Nirupama and Ram who were extremely hands on owners. This was really like staying at a home away from home. Would highly recommend this to anyone.
We used the Hanu reddy residences to put up 30 people from abroad who were attending a wedding in our family. The reception, food cleanliness and service was par excellence . Everyone had a great experience and a great location too. Nirupama , the owner , is a pleasure to deal with – polite ,accommodative and hands on .
Hello, I had used this property for putting some guests for two of my family occasions, starting with two guests for 2 days and going up to 68 guests in 30 rooms; I used the facility for private parties, common buffet lunches and dinners. My guests were from all over the world. I must say I was left completely happy and my guests all praise for the stay. The management is willing, the staff are well trained, hospitable and helpful, Food basically Indian will some international cuisine (less spice) thrown in was really excellent. Tasty yummy food well served. Spacious property and spot centrally located in Chennai. My events were a success and I must attribute major part of this to Hanu Reddy and the family Director incharge Ms. Nirupama Reddy. We could even call her at 1.45 am for some room allotment and she was all smiles. Go ahead and book here, you will love it.
In past one year ,me and my husband stayed here for almost more than 8 months.Its like a home for us now..Now whenever we come to chennai,we never look for anyother option..Hanu reddy residences is always our first choice.The hospitality is good here especially the Nirupama and Ram.They are very generous and helpful..They truely make us feel comfortable here.One more person Mr.Anthony is really nice person.Whenever we want something we always get that…
The ambience is good,environment is clean,its all green everywhere..We always recommend this apartment to our friends and other people.
These residences were recommended by a Chennai friend of mine. (I am from Western Europe.) I spent there two nights in January 2014. As a residence, the location and the rooms were very good. Rooms are large and equipped with everything one needs. Service is excellent and available 24/7. Breakfast was prepared individually according to my wishes. Tariffs are fair. If one is looking not for a hotel but for a nice and quiet residence stay in Chennai, to me these Residences are a very good choice.
My husband and I stayed for two nights at this place. It is located quite close to the railway station – about half an hour away. Great for Chennai where traffic is bad. The manager and most of the staff are Oriya and very helpful. The breakfast is good but could be more sumptuous. Although they do ask for more helpings, the variety of dishes is limited to one or two. Coffee was good- filter coffee.
The rooms are very spacious, well equipped and in true European style furnished with fridge, a kitchenette with pans and plates etc. A hot plate and microwave also. Although we didnt cook as we were busy it would have been relaxing to do so.
The area around is very chique. There are a lot of high end boutiques – Killol, Toni and Guys and the likes. A Greek restaurant is just round the corner with great food – pita bread, humus and lots of salads.
The Apollo hospital is within walking distance and one can comfortably have a checkup or stay a few days if needed while taking care of health needs.
There are some more similar hotels nearby but not as good as this one.
Set in the exclusive residential district of Poes Gardens, this is a secluded, quiet and safe area of Chennai. The Chief Minister’s private residence is close by, so the area is awash with police.
Nice leafy environment but nowhere really to sit out.
The rooms are huge, well appointed, with aircon, wifi and lovely bathrooms. Decor is basic but everywhere is spotlessly clean.
Very friendly staff. Home cooked meals if requested. It is more of a guest house than a hotel, with no bar or formal restaurant.
If you stay here, try the excellent Entekeralam restaurant which is nearby.
We paid 4000 Rs for a large double and at that price in central Chennai I think it rates 4.5 stars.
After spending 4 days here I would highly recommend this place. The service is great and the place is clean and nice. Definitely a good value for the cost of the stay. Morning breakfast at the nice gardening are quite nice and Nirupama Reddy made this place feel like home
Nice place with good service and good rooms – will certaintly stay here again. Good location in the ambassade districkt. Stayed two days in Hanu and had a good time. Very freindly staf. greeting from anders
Its an ideal place to stay when going to the US consulate in Chennai.My name is Dr.Jayan Thomas and I had booked the room for my wife and son . My son was going to the US consulate for visa purpose and since he wanted a room close to it , I decided to take Hanu Reddy Residences. My wife even liked the dog there and the homely feeling.
Wonderful staff, homely atmosphere & great location! — our needs and requests were keenly addressed, and the management and great team from Orissa were all lovely and eager to satisfy their guests. We enjoyed our stay there, would definitely recommend it to others, and shall surely be back on our next visit to Chennai!
We chose ‘Wallace Gardens’ after having stayed in ‘Poes Garden’ because our place of work was closer. Comparing the two, Poes Garden was much cleaner and had a more aesthetic look but in terms of location, I liked this one better because it had a lot of restaurants and shopping places within walking distance.
Breakfast was as good but there was no ‘lawn’ sit-out.
Room service was very good. Staff was always ready to help in any way.
Room also had good internet connectivity which made me very happy.
The highlight of our stay at Wallace Garden property (15.11.2013 to 24.11.2013) is the excellent and committed service to the guests by the whole team led by Shri Ramesh Babu. At the Reception, solutions were offered to all our needs within the Property and in the City outside. The food served at the Dining was very tasty and the service was very courteous.
We will choose the same place for next visit to Chennai.
Immaculate 1 year old hotel in the heart of Chennai (beautiful neighborhood), close to the US consulate and the major music events/sabha’s. What really impressed me though was Ms. Nirupama’s (owner) can do attitude. She exhibits true pride of ownership in the maintenance of the property and is always willing to help. The only thing they can potentially do better is the breakfast – while it is great for folks who like home cooked food its not your typical large spread buffet at bigger hotels. This is no way detracts from the property though – it will be our preferred destination on all future trips to Chennai.
Great personal attention by all the staff, management. A little problem in locating the place for taxis and auto rickshaws. Keep the hotel phone no for the taxi driver to get directions. Hotel owners open to ideas of improving in all possible ways. Clean and comfortable.
This time I had a chance to stay in Hanu Reddy Residences Poes Garden in Chennai. It was really a great experience. Its very clean hotel, Rooms are very good and spaces the food is very good and the staff and service is excellent. The owners are very polite, decent and helping. I certainly recommend this hotel.
HR Residences in Poes Garden, Chennai, offers the traveler a combination of quiet surroundings, well appointed facilities and a very hospitable staff. The Poes Garden facility is centrally located in Chennai. The rooms are spacious, very comfortable and well maintained. The garden is lush and compliments the charm of this property. The kitchen serves a sumptuous breakfast and other meals can be special ordered for very reasonable rates. The staff is very courteous and always ready to oblige. There are many pluses to the HR Residences at Poes Garden offered at an affordable price. During my recent stays, I have become acquainted with Mrs Nirupama Reddy and Mr Ram Reddy, the owners/operators for the property. They are indeed very hospitable people and care deeply for the well being of their customers. This place is a hidden gem. Look forward to staying here on my next trip to Chennai. chandru
I was in Chennai in Nov 2013 to see the Chess World Championship Match and chose to stay at the Poes Garden facility of Hanu Residences. I could not have chosen a better place for this weekend trip. The buildings reminded of the architecture style of Frank Lloyd Wright and i was told that it was indeed inspired by his designs. The wide walkways, the landscaped terrace and the greenery all around the campus made it seem that we are not in the middle of the city but in a wooded resort. The service was efficient and i hope to visit them again some day.
Our recent stay at Poes Garden made us feel comfortable and peaceful. We recently visited the place in a huge group for an official purpose. Our stay there made us feel Hanu Reddy Group is well known for Perfect Ambience. The way Management and Staff reciprocated to every person/need of our group was really amazing. The greenery in and around the premises and well maintained rooms made us feel we are at home. Thanks to one & all of Poes Garden Group to make our stay so comfortable. Special Thanks to Mrs Nirupama Reddy and Mr Ram Reddy for their helping nature and friendly attitude with ever smiling faces. We would proudly suggest our friends and family for a stay at Hanu Reddy Residencies.
Good value for money… very friendly staff, rooms cleaned spotlessly, excellent breakfast service…Nice quiet location. Relaxing terrace area to walk around or meditate. Not far from the shops and city center, yet tucked away amongst luscious trees…would definitely stay here again….
The quaint area nestled amongst trees, gives the ubiquitous Indian/ Intrepid traveller or Foreign visitor a sense of calm when they relax by the garden or just stroll by the small front yard and the adjoining roads.
The team does provide good home cooked breakfast and if you need either lunch or dinner, do let them know well in advance. We reached there on Diwali night and stayed there for two nights in total and we were a family of four. The suite room provided to us was not to our liking and this family business run with Nirupama Reddy at the helm ensured us that the rest of our stay was great. They shifted us to two deluxe rooms which were spacious, modern and comfortable. Ever smiling and pleasant she charms you with her attitude and willingness to help and make one’s stay very pleasant. The roof top and garden area are very well kept with manicured miniature flowering bougainvillea and other flowering plants in beautiful pots. The lotus in the small artificial pond added to the beauty of the place. Just a few kms from the world renowned Marina beach, Poes Garden with its affluent class of rich and famous people does add charm.
Having lived in hotels and service apartments in different countries, we can boldly say that our recent stay for 12 days at Hanu Reddy Residences in Poes Garden was one of the very best, homely experience. Away from the city noise, but close to shopping centres, gives a plus point to the location. Stepping out into a serene, well-maintained garden with an overlooking statue of Buddha gives peace of mind. A friendly, helpful staff and delicious, homely food are sure to attract guests repeatedly to the HRR. Above all, the greeting smiles of Mrs. Nirupama, Mr. Ram and Mr. Antony made us feel that we are staying in a home and not in a formal hotel.
Ads by hotels may sometimes be exaggerated and deceptive, but we can surely say that in HRR
one can get a true ‘Home away from Home’ feeling.
I was on a business trip to Chennai and had the opportunity to stay at HRR in Poes Garden for 3 weeks. Located just off the main road made for a peaceful stay, yet very accessible.
Nirupama had her staff were always there to cater to my needs with a smile. Their South Indian breakfast was great. Having lived there for so long I had the opportunity to try almost all their vegetarian items which were finger licking good.
I was there during the festival of Diwali which is an important festival for us Gujarati’s. Nirupama and her staff ensured I did not miss out on it and invited me to light fire crackers with them-Diwali in Chennai, never dreamt of it.
Thank you everyone for making it a “home away from home” experience and hope to be back soon.
Wishing you all the best.

I chose this guest house on the basis of reviews I had read on the internet and it proved to be exactly what I wanted – a pleasant, quiet and homely place in a good location. It is run by exceptionally friendly staff. I was in Chennai for the first time and was constantly asking their advice and they were always helpful and resourceful, bending over backwards to make my stay a pleasant one. I initially stayed there for one week but then returned to the guest house whenever I was in Chennai over the month as it had come to feel like home.This is not a place for people who want gold taps, marble and the standard luxury of the 5 star hotel. The rooms are relatively simple but they are spacious, quiet and kept immaculately clean. Chennai’s traffic is formidable in terms of noise, pollution and congestion, so having a quiet place to retreat is invaluable. The area is pleasant and within easy access of the bustle of Greams road where there are several cheap eating joints and the quiet upmarket restaurants of Nungambakkam.
A special thanks to Ranjan who helped me throughout my stay and to Niranjan for his particularly delicious uttapams, sambha and cocoanut chutney which became my regular breakfast. Thanks also to all those who man the desk for their special Indian welcome. This is certainly a place to which I will return in the future.
Me, my wife and my son 2 years old stayed here in this property from Nov 3rd for 2 days. And we like to share our experience here… Excellent ambiance with calm and cool as like our Home, Friendly staff assisting with every aspect. Spacious rooms and especially neat and clean. Little more option in Break Fast menu can be impressive. My son enjoyed playing in the garden too. Not too expensive to be afforded that too located in the heart of the city Nungambakkam.
Me and my father came to chennai for visa interview and we stayed in Hannu Reddy for 2 days. It was a very good stay. The staffs helped us a lot. Since I was coming first time in Chennai I was not having any idea how to reach there. So before coming I called them and asked. They explained me very well, how to reach from railway station to the place, how much should we give for the auto(because chennai autos will ask the rate just like anything) and messaged me the full address, immediate contact no. and landmark. They served very good breakfast and lunch even though they don’t serve there, they arranged from outside. Location wise easily accessible. Everything was neat and maintained. A good value for money.
My daughter and I were at Hanu Reddy from 13th October to 28th October 2013. Easy and quick check in, comfortable, good sized rooms, clean bathrooms, wonderful staff. They were all friendly and ready to assist in any way. I must make special mention of Ranjan and Amar in particular, who went over and above the call of duty to help in the internal movements of my daughter who was recuperating from surgery at the nearby Apollo Hospital.
The location is within easy reach of restaurants and shops, and it was very convenient to order in take-always from the several multi-cuisine restaurants and pizza chains (Domino’s, PizzaHut) around.
Little things that matter like free wifi and tea making facilities in the rooms were readily available.
I believe the fact that we are repeat customers, having stayed in the Presidential Suite upstairs when 4 of us stayed there in December 2012/January 2013 attests to our satisfaction with the services offered.
The only minus is that the towels seem to have seen better days and are due for replacement.
On the whole I would highly recommend this guest house to visitors to Chennai.
I spent 8 night in this little oasis, I was in Chennai on Business and my days were full and all I wanted was a place to relax, The Residence was perfect: – Clean – Comfortable – Good Value for Money – Very Helpful and friendly Team Next time in Chennai only one place to stay…………. See you all soon.
Very good experience with the staff and stay. It was a very good and homely service. Especially the food quality was the best. We highly appreciate the entire team of Hannu Reddy and Wallace Garden and would recommend the stay.
Despite late night arrival, the front desk person welcomed me very nicely. I stayed in a separate building which was three houses away from the main one on the photo. The internet was great. I chose the Indian breakfast, and did enjoy it as my first Indian experience during this trip. The location of the hotel is in a residential area. When I needed to move to another location in town, several Rikisha was waiting in front of the hotel, and it was easy to move around in the town. Rikisha has a meter but it’s better to ask the hotel to negotiate if you need to watch your travel budget.
We had a very comfortable stay when we visited in September. As we were in Chennai for a wedding we stayed at Hannu Reddy for 8 days. We were upgraded to the Presidential Suite which thankfully was so much bigger. Very spacious and closer to the balcony overlooking the courtyard and street. The room was clean and the kitchen had a washing machine which was a bonus. The only downside was the kitchen itself, which was very old and had a strong mouldy smell. We would recommend that the owners replace the entire kitchen.
Apart from that, everything about our stay was great. The staff were very friendly and attentive. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Their happy, smiling faces made us feel so welcome.
As far as food goes, exceptional. All ingredients are freshly accessed on the day. Very tasty indeed. We even had dinner brought up to us on the balcony.
The location of the property is good, very close to shops and walking distance to great restaurants. Had great coffee around the corner.
The staff there definitely get the Thumbs Up!! Keep up the good work.
Had a comfortable stay. The rooms and the location is average but in terms of service, cleanliness and comfort, this is a good place. Very friendly staff; overall a homely ambience.
There are good resturants and coffee shops in the vicinity; appollo hospitals & pharmacy right behind the residence. Good place esp if you hve to stay for a longer period..
The breakfast is good.. although they can improve their lunch and dinner menu and service!
Since it is located in the vicinity of Apollo Main Hospital, it is ideal especially for travellers, who are in the city for health issues. Homely, pollution free, and a lush green atmosphere, is very shooting. Food is good.
This service apartment I found through internet. It is a decent homely place very near Shankara Nethralaya and apollo hospitals.The plus points are: no noise, good spacious room, friendly staff ,, parking space and central location, There are many good restaurants within walking distance. The breakfast is good though we would have preferred less hot chatny and sambar and brown bread. The smiling faces of the staff is a pleasant experience.
I had arranged for my guests to stay for a week. Their first trip to India. Right from picking them up at the airport, everything went well. They enjoyed homely breakfasts, accessibility to to KNK Road and tge warm hospitality!!
I stayed here for a period of 4 days on my visit to chennai apollo hospital.The property is just at 2 minutes walking distance from the hospital.The staff is very homely and Mr. Ramesh babu(THE MANAGER), is worth mentioning coz he is always available for help with a smile on his face.Food, here is a blend of hygiene coupled with taste.The property is well maintained with glimpse of optimum greenery spread over the terrace.Overall, I loved my stay at hennu reddy and would strongly recommend choosing this property during your visit to chennai.
We stayed at the Poes Garden residence last month and our decision to stay here was fully justified by the homely feel the environs and ambience provides – spotlessly clean rooms and bathrooms, hygienic food (tasted like home cooked meals), friendly staff and lots of greenery around. One does not get a feel that you are staying in a hotel. My elderly parents were initially skeptical but ultimately it was they who have given the place a 5/5. Will definitely come back here during our visits to Chennai.
We stayed at Hanu Reddy Residences for more than a week. we received excellent service from the staff there and they always served us with smiling face without any hesitation (Natural serving & not seems to be artificial) which made our stay more comfortable. The place was very very clean and peaceful. The food tasted heavenly (Home cooked taste).
Always they are having a alternate solution to serve us in case they can’t able to make it.
Overall the stay was really a home away from home.
I would definitely recommend this place to others & looking forward to stay again.
I lived at Hanu Reddy in Poes Garden for nearly two months (mid-July through mid-September) and absolutely loved my time there. To echo the sentiments of the other reviewers: These serviced apartments would just not the be same without Ms. Reddy and her team. They do a fantastic job of providing top-notch hospitality and, in my mind, go above and beyond their call of duty. When I needed some help with grocery shopping, they’d volunteer to do it. The time I was running late to a meeting, one of the managers gave me a lift in his car so I could make it on time. Ms. Reddy was generous to offer honey from her home when my mother needed some! If the devil is in the details, then the folks at Hanu Reddy have him by the scruff of the neck. Indeed, Hanu Reddy Residences offers a level of impeccable, personalized, service that is hard to rival in the commercial space.
The residences are situated in a very central, beautiful, secure and quiet area of Chennai. The rooms are spotless – as are the common areas – which, combined with the location, provide for a beautiful ambiance. The food is delicious, cooked fresh and to order. The staff is particularly friendly, warm and helpful. There is also a functional gym on the premises.
Some folks have complained about the WiFi signal being iffy or nonexistent in their rooms. Since every room has a wired internet connection, one way around this is to ask the staff for an ethernet cable.
Since I used the laundry service extensively, I can attest to this being great as well. My clothes were never lost nor misplaced and always came back by the end of the day all pressed and cleaned. There’s also washer and dryer if you like to do your own laundry.
Overall I’m extremely extremely pleased with my time at Hanu Reddy and would like to thank Ms. Reddy and her team for all their effort in making my stay a comfortable and memorable one.
I had booked this place for a 2 night stay for my parents. Having always stayed in hotels, I decided to try Hanu Reddy Residences after reading the wonderful reviews in TA. It turned out that I had made an excellent choice. My parents were singing praises of the place as well as the staff upon their return to Malaysia. Not only was the accommodation comfortable, clean, and safe, but the food and services were also excellent. I am now so tempted to stay in Hanu Reddy Residences with my family during our next visit to Chennai!
This was my first stay in a service apartment in Chennai from Aug 8th to Aug11th.
Am overwhelmed with the courtesy and service extended by the entire staff.
Food was very homely and did not feel away from home at all.
I visit Chennai every 2 – 3 months in personal capacity and frequent Chennai on official engagements as well.
Will recommend this property to all my friends as well as my corporate connections.
Next visit will be first week of November for sure and hopefully keep repeating.
Keep up the good reputation
Good location and great place to stay. Nice, well maintained rooms and good food available.the place is conveniently located. Very well maintained bathrooms too which is not found in many places. Enjoyed the stay and very good set of staff to help us always.
This is my first time to India, Chennai. Everything is new to me. I never know that the staff can be that helpful and friendly until I met them in this beautiful residence. I enjoyed their local style breakfast as well as I seldom treat roti as breakfast. Ohya… branded shops are just short walk from the residence! The locations is great as easily access to many hot spot. I’m sure I will come back again!
It is my first time chennai. I came to apollo hospital for my father’s treatment. Coming to Hanu Reddy Recedence was my best decision. Everyone here is friendly and helps you in every way possible. It’s just a minute walk to the hospital. The sevices you will form them is just excellent from all the hotels around here. All the staff here is well-disposed. You can pass your leisure time in there living room, balcony , lobby when ever you want with full comfort. More over This hotel is the best ever…is a masterpeice
wifi everywhere. very clean. staff are very welcoming and helpful. Managment is resiliant and customer orinted
Very good location , neat and cleane rooms , very friendly and helpful staff . It is like a home stay. It is very close to very good restaurants . Car parking is not a problem . It is a very good Bed and breakfast option.
Good location and centrally located, good for travelers on all all purposes. Independently lone standing Cozy building, very homely with Excellent service. It is even ideal especially for those who are to attend the Apollo Hospital, Chennai.
Both services apts of hanu reddy Pose garden and Wallace Garden are the best places to stay. Very spacious, best services and in heart of the city. Feel at home. I have stayed at both the locations and my choice is Pose garden
1. Location (5/5) – As they say, it is all about location, location, location. And Hanu Reddy Residences in Wallace Garden cant get more perfect even if they wanted to. It is a stones throw away from Khader Nawaz Khan road where all the eateries are. And it is nestled in a dead end of a neat little street.
2. Bathroom (4.5/5) – Nice and large, very clean and hot running water throughout the day. Only issue was that the wall mounted shower worked only on one setting, but I’m just splitting hairs here.
3. Service (4.5/5) – The service is quite laidback, but it reasonably efficient. Breakfast is complimentary and edible, which is saying a lot for hotels in Chennai.
Overall a very nice experience and we will definitely stay here again.
Spacious, comfortable clean accommodation – I stayed for four nights and never felt away from home! Will recommend to families and those visiting the Appollo Hospitals nearby for a decent accommodation that does not burn a hole in your pocket.
It was my first time in India and I felt very welcome and well attended.
the room was clean, fresh and spacious.
I was hoping for a nice window view, but you can’t always get what you want. From the ground floor I could see the back patio with a palm tree and that wasn’t bad at all. I felt safe and confortable.
I stayed there twice, the first time for a week with my family and then, alone for two days. Both times, we were impressed with the service and the attentive staff. They go out of their way to make sure all needs are met and that we are made very comfortable.
The owners make an effort to keep in touch with their guests and even after checking out, we are still treated with great hospitality.
When my sister (the bride) and I proposed Hanu Reddy as a possible wedding venue for the intimate wedding we were planning for her, all we were expecting was a peaceful and clean place with privacy. What we got in return was much much more than that – great place, the hospitality of the staff, attention to detail, and more than anything, personal care and immense help from Nirupama aunty. Their commitment and quality of service is superb; but more than anything, what made it memorable was the personal care and family-like support we got from Nirupama aunty and her staff.
During the 3 days we were there, as luck would have it, it rained cats and dogs and we were not prepared for that (outdoor reception & wedding!). My parents were stressed, to say the least. Nirupama aunty, even without us requesting anything from her, took charge of the situation and handled everything – from ensuring the decorations were in place, to making sure the venue was protected from the rain and was cleaned/mopped regularly for the reception. She was there again, the next morning at 4am talking to the decorators, caterers, her staff to ensure the wedding preparations were going without a hitch. Our closest family members did not go to that extent. Thank you aunty!
Her entire staff was wonderful. They were very cordial with everyone, listened to all our our requests, handled situations without our prodding or our involvement. With a smile on their face, they went out of their way to make the entire affair a memorable one.
We would highly recommend Hanu Reddy Residences to everyone and for our future occasions, Hanu Reddy will be our stop. We splendidly managed a reception/wedding (with ~200+ people attending, and ~65 house guests) in this beautiful place. I will be happy to provide more details to anyone who is looking at Hanu Reddy for possible events.
I stayed for about a week in HRR, my first time in an Indian guest house as I normally stay in hotels. It was a great experience with personable and attentive staff. The food was the highlight, felt like Indian home cooked food a welcome change from the rich restaurants. Also
Completely a home away from home. Smashing service and wonderful staff who always had a smile on their faces. Homely food and ambience. Would surely recommend for a pleasant stay. The owners go out of their way to keep in touch with their guests and make them feel very comfortable. Great atmosphere and excellent facilities. Easy access as the location is central. Clean and very safe surroundings.
Loved it and look forward to coming again!
We spent about 10 days in Hanu Reddy Residences in Poes Garden. None of us wanted to go back home! It was the best holiday we all had
Very tastefully decorated, peaceful, clean and convenient place in the heart of Chennai. Very helpful and very friendly staff, always available and ready to help with anything. I have never experienced this level of service.
Great food, freshly cooked, tastes like home cooked.
My 4 year old had tons of space to run around and explore. I look forward to staying at Hanu Reddy next time I am in Chennai
Wonderful staff, food, and room. I was an international college student on a four week summer business study program. They went above and beyond, providing me with a private study room, good advice for traveling around Chennai, and sometimes custom food orders. The manager even set up a meeting with an executive businessman to aid my studies. Whatever your unique needs may be, I’m sure Hanu Reddy Residences will find a way to accommodate you.
I stayed at Hanu Reddy Residences for 4 weeks during a study abroad program this last month and couldn’t have asked for a better experience. It was hard for me to be away from home and the staff and owners were more than willing to go the extra mile to make me feel comfortable! They went above and beyond. Everyone always had a smile on their face and said hello. It also is a little oasis in the city. The lush trees and greenery let you forget that you are in a bustling city for a bit. I would recommend this to anyone, especially those that want a quality homey atmosphere! Absolutely loved it!
My wife and I fixed an appoint with Apollo Hospital for our health check up. We found Hanu Reddy Residences on the net and confirmed our booking. We stayed there for about five days and really enjoyed ourselves. Since we took our daughters along, we booked two adjacent rooms. The rooms were large and clean, the decor very pleasant and well furnished. The bathrooms too were large, clean and comfortable.
The complimentary breakfast was good.
The working staff was well mannered and efficient.
Apollo Hospital was a two-minute walk. There was a lovely Italian restaurant close by and a good spa just across the road.
For my next visit to Chennai I wouldn’t go elsewhere.
We stayed at Hanu Reddy Residences recently for about one week and the experience was very pleasant. Top marks to the staff who are always available and ready to help out – be it advising on how to negotiate with auto-drivers or cleaning up the room at a time of your convenience. The rooms are clean – especially the bathrooms- and beds are comfortable. The breakfast choices are also adequate and very homely in taste. The location is excellent and its easy access to the main visiting spots in the city. For the price its definitely value for money and I`d certainly recommend this place for stay.
Location – 2 minutes walk from Apollo Hospitals, Greams Road Service – Prompt Food – * * * *, Can order your requirement Quite place for recovery after treatment Cleanliness – Very good, daily house keeping Ventilation – Very Good OVERALL- Pleasant and peaceful stay; would like to use next time again
since 3 years and I travel to Chennai for treatment and you need to feel at home so you can get the best of your treatment this what I felt with Hanu Reddy. they have very good welcoming always smiling and gives the best of there help. I love there local breakfast.
We recently stayed at Hanu Reddy Residences, Wallace Garden and got to experience the place first hand. It felt like home away from home. The rooms were reasonably clean and the service was prompt. The property is in a residential part of Chennai and is in a great location with easy access to lots of shops. Ramesh, a staff member, ensured that our stay was comfortable and went out of his way to help us. We enjoyed our stay because of him.
My family of 4 had a great experience at Hanu Reddy Residence, Wallace Garden. We’re from San Jose, California and this property is comparable to any high quality hotel or timeshare property we’ve stayed at in the US. We stayed at the Presidential Suite for 3 nights and were extremely satisfied with the amenities and professionalism of the support staff. The executive Admin, S. Ramesh Babu, went out of his way to ensure we had a great stay. All other support staff were also very helpful with Amar deserving special recognition. We had the breakfast every day and they changed the menu daily to provide more variety. Overall, a memorable stay and this will be our place to stay each time we return to Chennai!
Great atmosphere, fantastic location, wonderful people, excellent facilities, and warm hospitality. Put all these in generous portions and what you get is Hanu Reddy Residences. This is truly a “service” home (not an apartment). I have already booked for next year and blocked rooms, just in case a lot of people read my review and line up!!
A very quiet, clean and welcoming environment. Centrally located with easy access to most places in the city, yet far away from the hustle and bustle. The staff are very helpful and friendly. Food is prepared fresh and is tasty. Very well appointed with tasteful decor. Overall, a positive experience!
I was absolutely blown away by the awesome experience I had staying at the Hanu Reddy Residences in Chennai India. It was my first trip to Chennai and I was a bit apprehensive about it. All my misgivings were totally put to rest after the warm and inviting welcome I received when I arrived at the residences. The host, Nirupama, and her entire staff were on hand to to greet and ensure I was comfortably settled in. This special treatment did not stop there but continued for the entire duration of my stay. They were so friendly and accommodating and nothing was too much for them, even extending their help and expertise over and above their duty. The food was excellent and even extended to requests which were not on their normal menu. The rooms were spacious and comfortable and well serviced, but all of this is small compared to the sheer warmth that the entire staff exuded. The setting is so leafy and tranquil.a
I felt like it was home away from home and anybody visiting Chennai and not staying at this accommodation will be doing themselves a huge disservice .
The welcome by the staff on arrival was warm and very useful. We didn’t have to find the reception, they found us! Even before our arrival they had checked out our food preferences!
The room was very clean. Outside was so peaceful and quiet and elegantly landscaped, it is with great effort one has to remind yourself that you are in the heart of the hustling bustling, hot & humid, noisy Chennai!
The thoughtful gesture of serving hot snacks after we settled in the room was so warmly different from the cold fruits which are normally parked in five star hotel rooms (that was also there!) Everything in the room was working well.
The food was very homely. The service staff were very polite and humble – they made you feel good and special.
The eggless birthday cake was so so thoughtful and generous that it made my stay most memorable in my life!
The hot dosas at the morning breakfast were excellent.
When we were leaving, again the service staff (was his name Abhishek?) took us all the way to our transport and this left a good impression.
For its location, it is the most amazing deal for the discerning traveller who wants 5 star comfort at 2 star prices!
‘Hanu Reddy Residences Chennai India is an awesome facility. The bungalow type serviced facility with 11/12 rooms each had ideal rooms, and event spaces. Nirupama the Owner / CEO is a wonderful host. Our daughter’s Mehndi ceremony went off beutifully thanks to Nirupama. All our guests from US and other locations who came for the wedding were so thrilled we received numerous ” thank you” notes for the hospitality , warmth and genuine 24/7 care during almost a week of stay .
The quiet and homely atmosphere made the stay for all so wonderful. Will strongly recommend to anyone hosting a classy event in Chennai.
This complex is in the heart of the city – yet tucked inside a nice area in Poes Garden. The interior decor, furniture, the layout, kitchen etc. bring back the hospitality of South India over a century back. Every detail has been well thought out.
Staff are very courteous, always available in a discreet corner. The manager gave me three different room options when I was not satisfied with my first room (2 single beds!).
Breakfast and other food served have a homely touch.
If you are an NRI from South India, this is a must place to stay. You will certainly enjoy it.
If you are from outside India, this would showcase the old time Indian hospitality. Very close to many central attractions of Chennai.
We stayed at the Hanu Reddy residences for about a week surrounding a close friend’s wedding. The owner is just lovely and a wonderful host. The hotel is located in a beautiful and ritzy neighborhood – one of the nicest, quietest, and cleanest we saw in India – with wide streets, trees, and beautiful homes. There aren’t a ton of restaurants within walking distance, but a short taxi ride away. The staff there was absolutely wonderful and made sure we were well taken care of. They seemed to anticipate our every need somehow – when we came back in the evening, someone often met us with cold bottles of water, and to make sure we were happy and had everything we need. They helped us with transportation and recommendations for things to see. And they have a good chef, so we were able to eat some of our meals (especially breakfast, but a few lunches and dinners too) at the hotel. Our friends also hosted a Mehendi/Henna party for family at the hotel and the space worked beautifully for a crowd of 100 or so. I would recommend it wholeheartedly to families hoping to host large groups, or individuals traveling, as it was a wonderful home away from home.
I and my husband Dr. M S Seshadri had the wonderful experience staying in Hanu Reddy Residences when we visited Chennai early this year. I was first skeptical about the facilities available for my physically challenged husband’s needs. To my surprise and joy, Mrs. Nirupama, in-charge of the Residence, took extreme care of us as her own parents, and did all the arrangements necessary before even requesting, making our stay the most memorable.
The great advantage of Hanu Reddy Residences is its location. The food offered from their kitchen was homely and tasty, the ambnience excellent, and the staff was very pleasant and helpful. Our future visits’ stay will be definitely Hanu Reddy Residences, a home away from home, and we highly recomment it to other travellers, so they can also enjoy their stay as we did. Thank you Nirupama!
Hanu residences live by their motto ‘Your Home away from Home’. The place is beautifully designed and the staff is very helpful and polite. The place overlooks the green surroundings which adds to the pinch of your pleasant stay. It is very quiet and peaceful which is so difficult to find in any Metro City these days. They do a very good job with the cleanliness and bedding is very comfortable. Its in the heart of the city so everything is approachable at a comfortable distance.
Good and very memorable stay with family in April 2013.
Far from the noise pollution and closer to all shopping. Excellent ambiance. The entire place is
always kept clean. Very courteous service and the food is very tasty.
Entertained a group of twenty local friends for lunch. Arrangements were made in an excellent manner and the food was prepared and served to everyone’s satisfaction.
This is a very comfortable place when you are on a holiday trip with family and the Manager never
hesitates to meet you to make sure that your stay is comfortable.
My entire family of 40 people from mumbai stayed at Hanu Reddy residences in Chennai and had a very happy stay – from quality of the mattress – cleanliness and the ambience. You feel cared for by the management.
I am an NRI who stayed at Hanu Reddy Residences (Wallace Garden, Chennai) in June 2013. Having grown up in Chennai in a large bungalow myself, it felt like coming home. Once a private residence, the building has been converted into a B&B boasting 12 rooms with attached baths. The staff – right from Mr. Ramesh Babu, to the Oriya cook/servers/bellhops, and the elderly security guard – were gracious, helpful, and efficient. The room was very spacious (15 * 15 at least), as was its bathroom (10 * 10) that was cheerful, well outfitted and clean at all times. Among the complimentary services are – a delicious breakfast, bottled water and WiFi – a boon to the thirsty and tech-savvy traveler. The location cannot be beat – in the heart of Chennai, near the Taj/Landmark/the US embassy/2 major churches of historical interest/Pizza Corner/Ispahani Center/Spencers/Cane and Bamboo/Kalpa Druma/CakeWalk/Apollo Hospital, etc. The pricing and product were perfect. I hear that the Poes Garden branch is even better. I highly recommend the HR Residences to all segments of travellers! The establishment rates high with regard to security, dependable and pleasant staff, and tastefully designed surroundings.

The 5 days I spent at Hanu Reddy Residences were amoung my favorite during a 3 month stay in India. The property is beautiful in a lovely part of town that is convenient (even walking) to shopping, post office, music academy…everything I needed. The food from their kitchen is delicious and the rooms are very clean and comfortable with tv, refridgerator, ceiling fan, air conditioning, private bath, firm beds and luxurious linens. Plus, everyone on the staff is so helpful and friendly they made me feel like a queen. I highly recommend this property to EVERYONE :^)
We had to make a two day trip to Chennai for an appointment at the Apollo hospital at Greams road. Our requirement was a neat decent place, as close as possible to the hospital and yet reasonably priced (the last being relative). Based on our web search and review we came upon Hanu residences and it seemed to fit the bill. This place walking distance from the hospital.
We booked over the net and rang it to confirm an early check in, which was readily agreed upon.
First impressions have been lasting …
1. The stay is a converted residence and thus provides a homely atmosphere.
2. The rooms are neat and clean (which was must)
3. We asked for an extra bed and we were provided with a fold-able cot as well.
4. The bathrooms are neat, big and often this is a deciding factor and we were very much happy with it.
5. Apart from the exhaust fan, there was also a wall mounted fan – must be for the Chennai heat – we however did not have to use it!
6. To be noted is that the hot water in the bathroom comes from tap on the right (I ended having a bath in the hot water (luckily not that hot) assuming it to be the Chennai heat
7. We have ordered breakfast and lunch at the hotel room and the food is very homely and quite good. The dining room is in another building and since I was working, we ordered room service. We would however suggest having the breakfast at the dining room, since some of the south India food is best when had hot.
8. The locality is very hep and there are quite a few upmarket restaurants in the near vicinity. The room also has menu cards of most of these restaurants for home delivery. Some hotels though add and extra delivery charge as well. You will need to pay them in cash as these wont be billed to your room.
9. The staff is quite service centered and we always had the best of service.
10. We never had an issue with the AC across our stay.
11. They have electricity back up which kicks in as soon as the electricity goes off.
12. The Wifi connection is very stable and gets quite a good speed as well.
Our booking was for two nights, however under short notice we had to extend our visit by three more nights. This was easily accommodated by the manager Mr. Ramesh at a preferential rate as well. We were also allowed to have a late check out by 4 PM.
Our stay has been very pleasant and the location has been very central so as to meet our needs.
We would definitely recommend this place for anyone with similar requirements.
Please note that the review is for an home stay and it will not be fair to compare this with the hotels that you might want to opt. Like a a Taj or a Radisson.
After a bit of a mess with our arrival, the staff has been very friendly and helpful. They’ve been a big help in learning how to get around, book cabs, etc, and always smiling. We have a really nice stay, the house has large clean rooms and we felt at home.
Great location, good ambience, decent & courteous staff and value for money ! gives very homely atmosphere. the breakfast is complimentary. sincerely recommending to people who intend staying for a longer duration.
I was working in Chennai for three months and stayed at Hanu Reddy Wallace Gardens for about two months. My room was very spacious and always spotlessly clean. The staff were warm and friendly. They assisted me with finding a gym in the neighborhood and even helped book train tickets when I struggled with the national rail web site. The location is in a quiet neighborhood with a great grocery store nearby and many restaurants. I would highly recommend this placed for a short or longer stay, Chuck from Seattle USA
Set back in a quiet end of high street shopping – the rooms are large, power back up is plentiful, breakfast is decent & most importantly, service & responsiveness are good. Will definitely go again. Highly recommended for business travellers looking for good value.
I stayed in Hanu Reddy Residences twice,and I couldn’t have picked a better place! The staff were wonderful and my room was kept clean all the time. Good breakfast food – introduced me to the wonderful southern cuisine. The staff always helped negotiate rates with the auto drivers and took care of all my travel needs! Won’t hesitate to stay here again for my next travel to Incredible India, it was part of my wondrous experience!
It is located at the heart of the city, in a quiet, green locality. Lovely rooms, clean and well ventilated. Complimentary breakfast Helpful staff. Especially good for business travel. Some very nice eating joints and shopping options around. Recommended highly.
I would highly recommend staying here for anyone visiting Chennai. I stayed in a clean room with a very comfortable bed, tasty food, and friendly service. The location was great and I enjoyed meeting the other guests from around the world. Karen Berntsen
I stayed in Wallace garden and the location is fantastic! Beautiful service and clean rooms! Nice people… I would recommend to anyone this place! Very convenient for people who newd accomodation near Apollo. Lot of places to do shoppind, lot of places to eat food…. Cheers, Indhu
Rooms: We stayed in the Presidential suite (Entire Apartment with Kitchen etc) for 4 days with a little toddler back Dec 2012. There was a good sized bedroom with a big king sized bed, some furniture and a television upon entering. There was another good sized room, separated from the bedroom with curtains. This other room had 2 makeshift beds which could be used for extra persons sleeping at night or a comfortable furniture for sitting down during the day. This room had a small dining table which was just suited for 2 people.
There was a small sized storage room for storing luggage and hanging coats/clothes.
The kitchen was small sized. Suitable if you want to make a tea or coffee yourselves, and you could even manage to cook a decent meal if you are up for it. It had a fridge, washing machine, microwave and a few utensils. The utensils were not quite helpful if you had to cook a full meal for a small family.
The bathroom and toilet were good sized, clean, however it was not en suite (it was at the far end of the suite of rooms) which I found to be a major disadvantage.
Food: They prepare food as per your specifications. We were health conscious and wanted it pretty bland (not too oily or spicy) and we got exactly that. You can go for the North Indian style of lunch or dinner (roti/subzi/daal) or the South Indian style of sambar, rasam, poriyal. Breakfast also had a good variety – they do dosas, idlis, upma, pongal etc. I would rate the quality and hygiene quite high. They were also quite happy to provide us with tea or coffee on demand throughout the day (for us as well as our guests). Food is charged separately, but worth the price you pay.
General hygiene: They cleaned and mopped the entire suite every day and cleaned the toilets too. They also did the beds and were quite happy to change sheets and provide spare sheets/pillows.
Service: The attitude of the people supporting the services was very good and polite right from the managers to the cooks and cleaners. They were pleasant mannered and helpful. They also received and stored on our behalf some internet deliveries before we landed.
Amenities: There is a Nilgiris supermarket nearby which stocks fresh fruit/veggies/dairy products and all branded cosmetics that you would need if you forgot to bring your essential toiletries.
Mosquitoes: They have nets attached to all windows but this doesn’t make the suite mosquito proof. This is a problem all over Chennai and their service apartments are not immune. I strongly recommend buying an electric bat (looks like a tennis racket and costs under 300 Rs I think). We bought one of these and did a mosquito cleansing every night before going to bed and ensured we kept the doors closed at all times so the mosquitoes can’t get in. This minimized mosquito bites to a great level.
1. The air conditioning in the main bedroom and the other room was quite effective and they have generators to support continuous supply of electricity including ACs when there are power cuts.
2. They were quite happy to provide a DVD player, Laptop etc on extra charge.
3. They provided newspaper every day and bottled water at no extra cost.
Overall, we had a good and pleasant experience and got more than we expected. I would definitely recommend this place for Indian as well as International Travelers.
The ambiance and staff really make you feel at home away from home, feel like living at that place. Breakfast was simple but home made type, very suitable for people visiting Apollo Hospital. Santosh Padia
We stayed 5 nights at this small place. Like a Bed and breakfast in the US. The location is very close to the famous Apollo Hospital. The place is a single family home converted to rooms. The rooms are clean and the food is very good , Good service Pat Balan
Excellent location, ambience, neat clean rooms freindly staff and afforable rates. We stayed there twice during our visit. Breakfast was included and you could order your lunch or dinner incase you are returning late.
We stayed at Hanu Reddy Wallace Gardens for 2 nights at the end of Feb 2013 and 1 night in mid March 2013. On both occasions our rooms were plain and simple but clean and comfortable. There was hot water in the shower, a particular bonus after our 10 days in the Andaman Islands. The staff were excellent, being very helpful with arrangements such as organising an early breakfast + a taxi to the station for our very early train to Bangalore. I can particularly recommend the food at Hanu Reddy, the chef is excellent.
The staff are extremely friendly and accommodating. Food is great – breakfast includes both western and Indian options. Rooms are clean and modern, and our room had an amazing bathroom and an air conditioner. Thank you Mrs Reddy for being such a wonderful host!
We recently stayed at the Hanu Reddy Residences for four nights and could not have had a better experience! The rooms and buildings are very clean and fresh looking. The rooftop area is worth exploring and has many secluded sitting areas.
The staff was very friendly and helpful. For example, our flight arrived at 2am early Sunday morning and there were TWO staff-members awake to greet us and help us get situated in our room.
Everyday the food was excellent, fresh-tasting and well-presented. The dining areas were well kept and a pleasure to eat in. All in all, a great stay at a great facility. We will definitely be back!
A very warm welcome from the staff and the owner. An excellent value for your stay in Chennai. Apparently the place is located next to the house of the chief minister so you know this is a good area
Thank you for all the help given during our stay. You really made our
Stay memorable. Thanks again to your staff for service,cleanliness, food,making sure that I am safe,particularly during shower etc.
We would like to thank your entire staff under your leadership and guidance.
We are trying to get away from jet lag.
We have adopted you from now on as our DAUGHTER. Don’t be surprised if you get frequent calls or mail. Our special thanks to Ram for the flexible hose pipe.
Be in touch
We reached Dallas on Sunday night. In Chennai, our flight to Abu Dhabi was delayed, as a chain re-action, we had to run between flights, and hardly made them.
Nirupama, our stay at Hanu Reddy Residence was the most memorable, and the best we have ever had, made us feel we were the VVIPs there! You are very professional, at the same time compassionate, a real asset to the management. We sincerely thank you for making our stay so comfortable.
Hanu Residences is an utmost charming place. In the middle of Mylapore you land in calm gardens, where you hear the birds singing.
A top modern hotel with all amenities a guest likes to find all over the world, yet Hanu Residences holds its distinguished style, designed in plain aesthetics.You are not somewhere in the world, you live in Madras in one of the houses you admired on your former walks through the garden city. I want to thank Ms.Nirupama Reddy and her genial staff for their great hospitality.
We had over 20 guests stay at Hanu Reddy Residences during our wedding celebrations and it was a wonderful experience overall. The rooms were clean and comfortable, the staff was gracious, and the food was excellent. Furthermore, each and every guest commented on the lush greenery and peaceful ambiance that encloses the residences. Many were traveling to Chennai for the first time, and the environment of the Residences played a key role in creating a positive first impression of the city and the country. Luxurious yet down to earth, Hanu Reddy is indeed a distinguished “home away from home” that we would wholeheartedly recommend to future visitors.
Hanu Rerddy Residences – Poes Garden and Wallace Garden – proved to be the perfect choice to accommodate our guests for our family wedding. Though centrally located, both these premises provide a very peaceful ambience with their beautifully landscaped gardens and tastefully designed interiors. The rooms are decorated elegantly and maintained well. The Members of the staff are very courteous and prompt in their service, giving a very relaxing environment for the guests.
I have no words to express my heartfelt thanks to you for opening up your lovely residences to the guests for Dia’s wedding.
My staff have only words of praise for the personal involvement that you took to ensure that the guests were well looked after.
Your team was superb and everything about the residences – was excellent.
I am deeply grateful to you Nirupa for making the visit for all the guests – most of them coming first time to India and to Chennai – a totally memorable one.
Hanu residence played a huge role in the memories that the guests are taking back with them.
My office will settle the bill soon and I would very much like to come and thank you in person for your gracious help and support.
Thank you Nirupa.
I am deeply grateful.
We had taken the Hanu Reddy Residence in Poes Garden for my daughter’s wedding. It was really a home away from home experience for the guests. They were looked after very well, the food was really good and the staff were excellent. The rooms were very clean and comfortable.We wish the team at Hanu Reddy Residences all the best for the future and looking forward to using them in the future.
The ambience is lovely, quiet and yet right in the heart of city – literally a stones throw from all the happening places in chennai. The rooms are extremely well appointed, linen spotless and the staff are great. Can’t say anything wrong about this place. Not quite had the chance to savour their food but to people who are skeptical – go ahead – this could not be something you’ll want to complain about
Spent 2 nights at 24 Wallace Garden as part of a 3 week trip to India. Room and bathroom was clean and comfortable with fridge, plenty of hanging space and lots of charging points and also travel plugs for charging phones/tablets etc. The free wifi helped us keep in touch with friends and family. Located in a quiet residential area of manic Chennai, yet fairly central for anything you want to do in the city, there’s a small supermarket round the corner for buying water or snacks and taxis/rickshaws are always available right outside.
Staff were friendly, breakfast was good. Didn’t manage to eat an evening meal there as our request for dinner on second night (given to one of the staff in the morning when we asked if we needed to book and were told no) got lost in translation. But not a problem as there’s a good restaurant valled 5 Senses a few metres away on the street parallel to the Residences, accessible by walking through an alleyway.
The best part was we were allowed to check out at 6pm and shower/change beforehand after a long hot day before our onward train journey.
Great value for money in a big city and highly recommended.
Perfect Place, Clean room & Very nice people.
Very nice stay in Hanu Reddy guest house, Quiet and good location, People there are really friendly and service is amazing. Top address.
Nice stay , beautiful location and very nice staff. The Indian breakfast is amazing! Thanks!! Location is Superb.
We hired the entire apartment at 24 Wallace gardens and 27 Wallace Gardens for two weeks for my guests attending my daughters wedding. Our entire stay during the two weeks was very comfortable. The staff was very pleasant, helpful and became part of our family. We ordered food to our desire and was made to our liking with excellent taste. The rooms were clean, the A/C in working order and hot water functional. We had approximately 60 guests at one time for our pre-wedding held on the roof terrace, a comfortable area for entertaining people. I must recommend Hannu Reddy apartments to anybody visiting Chennai to stay.
My two daughters and myself stayed at the Pose Garden location of HRR for 10 days. The room was clean, comfortable, with uninterrupted power and wifi connection 24/7. The staff were very helpful and polite. The complimentary breakfast was superb as well. Any requests or needed information were always readily provided by the staff. The excellent staying conditions, helpful staff, ease of ordering healthy meals, home like atmosphere are all remarkable features of this Residence! Will certainly use it again if needed.
We stayed at the Hanu Residences in Poes Gardens for 10 days. The facility is great and homely. Very clean. The staff is amazing and always alert to anything we need. The highlight was the food. Apart from everything from brakfast to lunch and dinner being excellent, we also got to make our own menu. For eg if you wanted bhindi fry they would go out get bhindi and make it fresh for you- Can you get this even in a five star? Kids wanted Maggi and there it was. My daughter was performing a Bharatnatyam dance and so we had come to Chennai- they even rented us the hall for her dance practice. All in all & highly recommended property for NRI’s as well as people within India . High class locality and very convenient to all major shopping etc….
Our sincerest thanks for the wonderful home and the service you provided.We enjoyed your home and the biryani lunch was a big hit. Thanks for arranging and accommodating to all our needs. We would definitely recommend your place to our friends. Sending a couple of pictures as an attachment. God bless.

My stay was pleasant and the staffs were polite and attentive. They often helped me with directing my driver to different locations around Chennai, which was very helpful. My room was tidied and cleaned well when I asked them to do so. The location of the hotel is very good as it is so close to Nilgiris and nice restaurants and cafes. The AC is very effective and doesn’t make the room smell stuffy or damp as some AC’s do.
