Pocket Guide: 2 stars Hotels in Chennai

Chennai’s affordable two-star hotel give you a great base for exploring from. Public transport network, including a metro, buses and a suburban railway network, gets you around this large city easily.

2 Star Hotels for Chennai Culture Lovers

Stay in a two-star hotel in central Chennai and get to know the cultural highlights of the first British outpost in India. Head to George Town where 17th-century Fort St. George has a museum displaying the history of Chennai and the fort itself. While you’re there, pop into St. Mary's Church, which is within the fort and is the oldest surviving British church in India. You’ll also see the former Admiralty House with its memorial to Robert Clive, the 18th-century commander-in-chief of British India.

Pay a visit to Government Museum and you get several galleries for the price of one. Start in the Bronze Gallery, which has a fascinating collection of seventh-century South Indian bronzes. Go back to prehistoric times by exploring the Anthropology Galleries before catching up on modern art in the Contemporary Art Gallery.

Eating in Chennai

Head out from your two-star hotel to check out Chennai’s street food stalls, particularly in George Town, Egmore and Mylapore. Fill up on vegetable bhajis, bondas (potato fritters) and deep-friend doughnuts made with lentil flour known as vadas. Or try vada pavs, spicy potato fritters smothered in garlic chutney and served in a bun.

Things to Do in Chennai with Children

Take the kids to the Children’s Museum, one of the galleries within the Government Museum complex. They’ll marvel at the life-size models of dinosaurs including a stegosaurus and a tyrannosaurus. There’s small-scale fun to be had in the museum’s kids’ corner among the collections of dolls, toys and curios.

Spend the day at Marina Beach, where you can watch games of cricket or fly a kite along the sands. The riptides are too strong for swimming, but it’s perfectly safe to do some gentle paddling at the edge of the sand. At the southern end is Madras Lighthouse, which has the only lighthouse lift in India as well as wonderful views from the top.

Enjoy the sunset then head back for a comfy sleep at your two-star hotel in Chennai.
