TravelPod Member ReviewsThe Accord Metropolitan Chennai (Madras)
Staff as before were very friendly, very helpful but our second stay was disappointing for two people who wanted to pamper ourselves. The Front desk, spa staff and Travel desk were exceptionally helpful as was our driver.
We were looking forward to our second stay at the Accord Metropolitan to end our three weeks in South India and pamper our selves. However service was quite poor. Towels were not replenished, one bathrobe for two women and when we called several time it still never came. We had one slipper then the second night the slipper was gone. We were looking forward to use the swimming pool which were told would be open again in January it was not for our December stay. The pool was closed, we said well at least the steam room is working. It was not working, the second evening both the steam room and the dry sauna were not working. The changing room is not clear so men and women had no privacy. We had an early flight but the phone kept ringing at 3 am for someone else...sigh.
We were asked if we had taken anything from the mini bar but there was no minibar it was empty...
Its too bad because the hotel was quite expensive for the both of us but we paid for the amenities of a three star hotel.

My first port of call in India was Chennai (formally Madras). It is situated on the south/east coast, overlooking the Bay of Bengal and is the fourth largest city in India. It's also the capital of the Tamil Nadu state. I stayed just over a week, which was a little longer than i'd planned, but it took me a couple of days before i got the ball rolling. My plane from Thailand landed on schedule at 22:00 but by the time i claimed my baggage, got passed airport security and ...
... the services had improved. From Immigration to Customs, it was a breeze. In no time, we were out of the airport and were greeted by the driver just before the car park. This was a new company that we had engaged. Our usual driver could not make it and hence we went with this company called Bavi Travels, based out of Chennai. We hired a Toyota Innova along with a driver for the entire journey. ...
... but the Indian version – with houses from various areas of India and backgrounds into different ways people live and lived. It was super cool and i had some coconut water straight from a coconut while we were there (I’d been seeing them all over India but never tried).
Naren treated us to a very western meal at a posh looking place where we dined on some tasty garlicy bruschetta, mozerrella sticks, seafood cocktail, sea bass and a chicken ...
... to our accommodation by the beach. The beach area of Varkala is based along the cliff top with stairs down the cliff to the beach below. It is a tourist town and we are allowed to show a little more skin, although I felt exposed on the beach in my bikini with the Indian men staring. We have a two night stay in Varkala, and will move on early tomorrow morning to a home stay.
All is going well so far. The tour is moving at quite ...
... we were darting about. Ha! I couldn't believe it. The man he has flicked it off started laughing at me once he saw me jumping about. .. He thanked mark. HONK! HONK HONK HONK. This honker on the bus is piercing our eardrums. SO OVER THE TOP IT'S UNREAL. It actually hurts. We've wedged our earphones in as far as we can, whacked the music up AND WE CAN STILL HEAR IT!!!! Ouch! Mamallapurum is south of Chennai so 1 step closer to our flight to Sri Lanka. But I can't believe we've ...
