Chennai is situated along the coast and hence has several beaches in the city. Although most are not suitable for swimming in, a stroll along the beach is always a nice option for an evening activity. Marina beach is the most famous of the beaches and while it can get crowded it still affords great views for an enjoyable walk. Chennai also has several temples and churches that one can visit such as Kapaleeswarar temple which is Chennai’s oldest temple and the Basilica of the National Shrine of St.Thomas which is one of the only three churches in the world built over the tomb of an Apostle of Jesus Christ. The National Art Museum, Birla Planetarium, Arignar Anna Zoological Park, and Guindy National Park are also favourite attractions in the city.
“The hotel was really good. The room was spacious and clean. We loved the complimentary breakfast that they served. Only Wifi was a disappointment. However, we would surely like to stay at J's Five Two Boutique if visiting Chennai again.“
“Overall good service provided by the staff. Rooms are top class clean and tidy with clean and Lenin Excellent staff including the reception. Very helpful in all matters. Close to most of business establishment.“
“The room was very small compared to the description given in the pictures. I and my colleague were almost banging into each other in the room. Location is very good. The bar in the hotel is very expensive“
“Bfast was very poor - No body attends the Restaurant in the morning and they dont care what the guest want. They just note down the room number and vanish. Only positive is rooms are clean even though it is very small. Bathroom lay out is very small and one has to be careful not get injured while t“ aking bath
“Located in the prime area, best accessibility. clean rooms & good service.
Breakfast was bad. (said due to restaurant renovation)
it was better if they had cancelled the breakfast option till they can provide inhouse“
“I stayed in the Treebo J's Five Two Boutique for two nights and a mixed experience. The front office staff was very good and helpful. I was allotted a room that did not have good cooling so immediately I was moved to another room with better AC impact. However, here the lights were very dull and“ dim and I wanted to study something. So I again requested for change of lights and it was done.
I had ordered lunch next day which was unduly delayed and I had to make several reminders as I had to leave for a scheduled meeting.
The breakfast was not too great but again the staff here was very courteous.
So on the whole it was a normal experience.
“Room size was too small and congested. AC was working but its effect was very minimal.
Dining hall was without a proper ventillation thereby giving a congested effect again.
Food quality was average. Fruit juice was full of ice cubes and thereby dilute. Idlies were not spongy.“
