Mumbai (Bombay), India
Reviewed 25 March 2016

The rooms are well furnished, though in need of some attention. (The sofa upholstery had cracks and tears). The bathrooms are somewhat small. The wifi speed is very slow and connectivity is an issue which needs attention. Aircon setting could also be better.The breakfast spread and quality are very good, though the service could be improved.

I have been staying in The Residency & The Residency Towers whenever I visit Chennai for over last 12 years. The Residency is very well renovated, have clean & highly functional rooms. They have excellent room service and restaurants are also great. Being centrally located one can zoom around the city quickly.
