He suddenly...

Was a good value place to stay in town, right in the middle of everything and a short walk to all the sights. Loved this town and this guesthouse made a great base. The rooms are basic but pretty clean and your belongings will be safe. You must eat at Babu’s while you are here it is a few doors...

Siva is a very good value guesthouse in the heart of the tourist area in Mamallapuram. The cheapest rooms are small but comfortable with decent beds, some shelving, fans, natural light and attached bathrooms.. Pay a bit more and you can have TV and a/c. There's back up power when the electricity is off and slowish but usuable WiFi. The...

You get exactly what you pay for in this guesthouse but what adds the value is the chilled-out, laid back atmosphere. Othavadai Cross street where the guesthouse is situated is full of budget accommodation providers and travelers `facilities. The cheapest room (appr. 8 Eur per night, non a/c and no sea view) did reflect the price and had only a...

Basically all I ever ask of guesthouses/inns/hotels/whatever in India is to just give me a room and then leave me the hell alone until I have a question/need. That's what Siva delivered. I checked-in, went into my room and wasn't bothered until I bothered them with some sort of request/question. Just what I was looking for. The toilet and the...

The room was modestly clean and had hot water all the time. There are mosquito net covered windows . Bed is not...
