Truly a home away from home

Had been to Chennai last week with wife and daughter, and had booked at Hanu Reddy through MakemyTrip. The primary reason for booking was that it was close to Sankara Nethralaya eye hospital (where my daughter had an appointment), and the prices were quite reasonable. This place combines the best of a hotel and a guest house and the result is that you feel very much at home here. This is primarily due to the staff here who are extremely courteous and helpful. You really do feel like a special guest here (and not a mere customer). It’s located at the heart of the city (Nungambakkam) and yet tucked away in a quiet and green corner, away from the noise of the traffic. Located very close (walking distance) to hospitals like Apollo and Sankara Nethralaya . The room (we had a Deluxe room) was nice, clean and spacious with all the amenities that you expect from a top hotel. The best part however was the food, which came as a nice surprise. Even though they don’t have a typical ‘restaurant’, they do have a proper menu and serve food in a nice room that’d remind you of your own dining room at home. You have to order some 2 hours in advance (since they cook it specifically for you from scratch). We wanted food that was not spicy (no chillies) and less oil and it was cooked exactly as per our needs; and yet was very tasty. Would definitely recommend eating here if possible. The prices are also very reasonable. Overall a very nice and pleasant stay and I’d definitely look to stay here next time I visit Chennai.
