Emarald hotel is a wonderful escape from the intensity of Chennai. It is extremely close to great shopping and the subway. The staff was very attentive and pleasant. The facility is beautiful and well maintained.The breakfast was excellent with a wide variety of items to meet a variety of cultural tastes.

I stayed for a day. Quiet place, walkable from central station. food was good. breakfast was good. reasonably priced. well furnished rooms. There is a also a very helpful travel desk who sorted out very cheap taxi to the airport for us in about 20 seconds. would definitely suggest it for others. I will stay here again.

I heard about this hotel through word of mouth. I have stayed there more than 3 times. one of the best hotels in Chennai for the price. Hospitality was excellent and the food too. Located at the heart of Chennai gives it another big advantage. Worth every penny.

Located near Chenna Central station we booked and checked-into this Emarald Hotel for 1D/2N through Cleartrip.com since they also offer 24-hours format check in and out! A pretty old but re-furbished hotel that it is the rooms(we stayed in #217) are a clean but rather smallish and with NO functional window(s)! The air-con is your only hope; and even if you do not like A/C or if the electricity goes you have to just grin and bear it! Also there are NO control options for the air-con! Post sunset and at night the CFL lighting is rather in-adequate, sadly!
Mattress is comfortable but make sure its fresh/changed upon check-in! Hot water is available 24 x 7; albeit Chennai is rather hot most part of the year! Room service was quick and the complimentary break-fast(07:30 to 10:00 hours!) too had a Indian & Continental touch and was tasty too!
Beware though ‘cause even if you are not in the habit of depositing the room-key the hotel/house keeping staff there-in have a ‘spare’ and can(will!) still access the room(s) in your absence so ascertain that NO cash/valuables are left back in the rooms as you go sightseeing! We reverted one evening to see our bed all done-up and the loo cleaned too so…!
Also make sure ALL food-stuff/left-overs are cleared since the rooms are infested with small cockroaches(!) that invade food packets! This fact was brought to the notice of the front office who promised to have all rooms dis-infected shortly so chances are you will find the rooms bug free when YOU visit that hotel!
Overall, though, this Emarald Hotel sure is value for money and you can be assured of a pleasant stay and blissful sleep; albeit with the occasional blaring of the train horn in the distance!
