I had mixed feelings about Footprint. The basic requirements of a B&B were all met, they had a proper reception with excellent communication, the room and toilet were clean and serviceable. The breakfast was adequate and delicious. But it lacked a little something which would make it truly great. The room/toilet was tired looking and could do with a serious... More

A friend recommended Footprint B&B to me, and it was very nice. It is well laid out and very clean with rooms spread over two floors of an apartment building. The breakfast was okay, and the staff were friendly. Sandy's restaurant is also nearby which is a very good place to eat. There was one downside; I had to check... More

This is a wonderful, clean, friendly, peaceful place to stay right in the heart of Chennai. I stayed for 3 nights - though many stayed for much longer. It's the best place I've ever stayed in Chennai over the past 15 years that I've been visiting.

We enjoyed our very brief stay at Footprints while traveling through Chennai to do some research. The accommodations were clean, reasonably priced, and had everything we needed.
