Review of Crystal Residency , Chennai

This hotel is famous among those who go for their U.S. visa interview at Chennai U.S. consulate , because of its location. It is situated at Annasalai , just opposite to the consulate. Even the auto drivers at the railway station know this hotel very well. It is around 5 kms from the station.
The hotel has a 24 hours check-in /check out. The rate is INR 1600 plus tax (it is better to book your room in advance as it remains full most of the time). During check-in you have to make the payment. Also do not forget to carry your ID card as they take a print out of it during check-in. Rooms are clean , air-conditioned and have phone , TV. Though geyser was there in the bathroom , it did not work in our time ( but I guess u do not need it in Chennai's hot and humid weather). Breakfast is complimentary. You can either opt for idlis , vada and juice/tea or bread , butter , tea. Apart from that they have a multi-cuisine food service where you can get Chinese , North Indian and South Indian foods. Food is really tasty (specially biriyani) and not very expensive.
There is a subway just in front of the hotel which will lead you to the consulate within a minute. So I would recommend this hotel for those who want to stay near the consulate. Also you can get a transport to the railway station even late at night for the hotel's prime location.
