Totally Worth it

Posted Aug 25, 2016
I liked every bit of my stay. The rooms are grand sized. Quite big for 2 people. The property is 160 year old and the South Indian charms are oozing every bit out of the amazing staff who make your stay so wonderful.

I stay in this hotel every time I visit Chennai!

This hotel combines classic elegance of bygone days with modern facilities. This hotel is quite unique. It has character unlike more modern hotels which all look and feel the same.

Colonial gem about to get much needed facelift

Posted Apr 13, 2016
Location: Great location near Anna Salai (Mount Road). Shopping malls round the corner - Express and Spencers craft shops like Poompuhar and VTI.
We always stay at the Vivanta by Taj Connemara and enjoy its colonial tranquility in the midst of the hustle and bustle of Chennai. It has a great location and is a lovely hotel but very much in need of upgrading. This is about to happen - it is closing shortly for 18 months to get a complete overhaul. We had a lovely stay having been upgraded to one of the top suites. The staff everywhere were lovely - pleasant, helpful and attentive but never intrusive. The food was fantastic with great variety both in the restaurants and from room service. Room service did an excellent job. Can't wait to return when the refurbishment is complete!
