Return to Hanu Reddy Residence

My husband and I have just spent a holiday week (1/3 – 8/3/2015) at Hanu Reddy Residence, Wallace Garden. It was our third visit after 2 very short stays in 2013. We came back to Chennai and Hanu Reddy because we had such a good time in 2013. This time we were in room 15 which is in an “annexe” building just along the street from the main building. The room is simple but large with a king size bed. It has en suite bathroom, dressing room, air con, hot water and free wifi. Yes! In the room! Every traveller’s dream! Often hotels offer “free wifi throughout” but when you check in you are told it is only in the lobby. Not the case at Hanu Reddy. The room and bathroom are very clean. An especially good thing about Hanu Reddy is the quality of the food. Breakfast is included in the room price and is very generous. There is tropical fruit salad, a variety of Indian dishes including a daily special, omelette, cereal, toast with butter and jam, tea and coffee. Lunch and dinner are also available to order. We had dinner several times, always delicious Indian food, everything freshly cooked by the excellent chef. But really the best thing about Hanu Reddy is the staff. Ramesh Babu and his team are all helpful and friendly. Nothing seems to be too much trouble and they are good at their jobs. Wallace Garden is in a quiet area of the city and in the last 2 years Nungambakkam has become cosmopolitan with good coffee shops and restaurants.
