This is a well located hotel in the heart of Mylapore within walking distance of some of the best tourist locations in the city. The bathrooms are spacious though the entry level rooms are a bit cramped, for single occupancy, they will not be inconvenient. The hotel is very convenient for women travellers as there is a sense of security...

Shelter hotel is located in the heart of Chennai, Mylapore... very near from the Kapaleshwar Temple, Mylapore and the shopping district! The rooms are a bit small but neat and clean. There's decent parking space available. Overall service can be improved a bit...but a great experience and value for money!

However, it ends there; upon entering my room, I stepped into another world; the room being small, depressing and grubby. I asked to see a few more,...

We had stayed in Shelter Hotel for 2 nights during our trip to Chennai. The hotel is located in a crowded street in Mylapore but we had chosen this since it was close to tourist attractions like Kapileshwar temple, Sai Baba temple, Ramkrishna Mutt, Marina beach, Saint Thomas church, Vivekananda House etc. We liked the spacious lobby and interior of...

Rooms are good you will not be complaining about it. Ac could have been more effective in terms of cooling but its good. Food is one thing for which you will be waiting specially morning breakfasts. Room service is also good.

We had a business trip to chennai and actually booked this hotel from the airport just before boarding the flight. Reached the hotel past midnight, and was simply surprised when I entered the room. For the amount which we paid, it was par excellent. Clean Bathrooms, smal room, but very comfortable.

The best hotel, I had ever stayed. Very polite service. The lighting arrangement in the pasage need urgent improvement. Value for money. The cost for extra bed is very high. This was 50% of the room ren. To be rationalised by the hotel authorities.
