Double room = Rs 1000.00 without AC. Friendly staff, good ventilation, insect screens. We also took hotels car (RS 1200) to Chennai AP for early flight, Nearby "German Bakery" ( Nepalese operated) is good value, as is non-veg 200m to West. If staying a few days, consider buying 20 litre water bottle. WiFi available on the balconies, but not apparentley... More

We spent there one nigh. It was a good enough place, no luxury but fair enough. The place is clean, rooms have confortable beds, and the people is nice. The best part is the good price. You will not feel you are getting low quality. I would go back to the same place whenever back to Mahabalipuram.

'Value for money' type of hotel. Rooms are pretty basic. Bed was clean. Bathroom was clean. Located in a tourist friendly area where most of the guesthouses are located. Beach is 5 mins walk. Many decent restaurants and eateries are close by. Bus stand is about 10 mins of walk. All in all, good place to stay.

If you want to save money and not sacrifice quality, this is a very good option. They have clean rooms with AC and Non AC and the staff is very helpful with you. Also they give you a good price to change dollars to rupees.

This is the 2nd time I have stayed with friends at Siva. There were 8 of us this time and I had arranged picjkup in Chennai. Everything we asked for was responded to quickly and efficiently. The staff are very helpful and friendly all financial transactions are clear and accurate. Highly recommend this as a place to stay in Mahabalipuram.

We stayed in Siva Guest House for 2 nights in the AC room. The accommodation is very cheap and yet very clean. It had all the basic amenities. It is also very close to all the sightseeing places and the beach. The manager, Mr. Madhavan, is also a very nice and helpful person.

We had a spotlessly clean room with very comfy beds. The location was excellent and the price was very good value. We looked into about 7 other guesthouses in the area but Siva was by far the cleanest, with a good size room and bathroom. Because temperatures had soared into the 40s, we took an AC room. There were a... More

Stayed here for 4 nights and thought it was fine. The guesthouse is in a good location if you want to see the sights and eat in tourist restaurants for breakfast (which we did). The room was clean enough, had heaps of lights and a bookshelf for storage which was pretty helpful. The price included towels, soap and toilet paper... More

Hotel is situated in the street parallel to beach so it is nearby all restaurant... More
