I've been to this place about a few times when I take off a break to go to Mahabalipuram for the weekend. This is by far been really good an experience. Comfortable rooms which are well illuminated and air conditioned. I've stayed in the standard and the deluxe rooms here and I personally enjoyed the deluxe room for the setup... More

We were a little hesitant when our manager at Chettinad Court suggested we stay at Hotel Mahab.....because of all the poor reviews written here. But we were in for a very pleasant surprise. Had a great stay at Hotel Mahab....our room on the 2nd floor was huge, perfect working A/C, bright sunlight streaking thru the curtains ...trees outside the windows...bathroom... More

We paid extra for a superior room, which was pleasant enough, but unbelievably noisy for most of the night, as there was a coach stopping place just outside the hotel, and groups of local tourists/pilgrims in huge numbers were cooking and socializing under our window. I realize the hotel can do nothing about this, and they did change us to... More

Where do I start? We didn't want or need AC, so we took a non AC room, but these people have no concern for the two non AC rooms they have. It rained during the night and we had water literally pouring down the walls. The following day we complained and they moved us to the room next door, then... More

We stayed at the Hotel Mahabs for 2 nights in January 2013. I had booked a DeLuxe air conditioned room including breakfast.We were allocated Room 205 which was on the first floor. The room was large and spacious but quite dark as you could not pull the curtains back as people walked over your balcony to their rooms. The room... More

Had been to this hotel in Dec 2014 and had a very worst experience. Traveled with wife and two kids. Since kids were not ok with AC had to take a non ac room. By evening the room was filled with mosquitoes. I tried calling reception starting from night 11 and non one attended the call. Thought of walking to... More

hotel has a nice garden, with clean pool, recling chairs and restaurant with OK food, but dirty and noisy (A/C) room, no warm water, leaking taps, just not good enough for a comforatble stay, too bad!

This hotel has big pros and big cons - the good points are its location in the centre of town, close to great vegetarian restaurant, within easy walking distance of the amazing stone carvings and a fantastic pool surrounded by lush trees and backed by a colourful mural. The negatives are the rooms - I knew they would be basic... More

I will be honest - we really fancied a couple of days in Mamallapuram but none of the accommodation options appealed. We didn't want to stay in the more upmarket resorts as they are far from the actual town. Eventually we settled on Hotel Mahabs which we knew would be the most basic of the places we were staying on... More

The hotel is in a very good location to all the attractions and walking distance to the beach and The Shore Temple plus restaurants, we stayed for a few nights. The hotel has a nice restaurant next to the swimming pool where breakfast was included, we were able to purchase wifi which was fairly strong in our room. The rooms... More
