Got stuck in room 101, which is on the edge and no view of the beautiful pool. I stayed a couple of years back and enjoyed it, but this time I could only manage two nights as it lacks hospitality and lost its character. Unbelievably they charge for WiFi as an extra, despite paying 2,600 rps per night! Lot's of... More

Stayed here for 2 nights, whilst it isn,t the Hilton you get what you pay for. The hotel is a little tired, our room was a little dark and the bathroom is a disaster and hot water is hit or miss, the staff try their hardest to help you out. Yes there are some mosquitos they do have screening and... More

We stayed in room no 108 & 109 for 2 nights in the last week of Dec’15. Overall the initial look and feel of the room was good. But later we discovered that the property was full of mosquitos all around. We had a terrible night and just couldn’t sleep. The next we asked the manager to burn some mosquito... More

We arrived on spec and were shown a variety of rooms and chose a deluxe room on the second floor. The room was nicely fitted out with a good view over the pool and gardens. The shower had no hot water and even after calling out a maintenance man it was difficult to tell the difference between hot and cold... More

Hotel Mahabs is near to most of the attractions in Mahabalipuram. Moreover, it is in a pleasant shaded site with lovely gardens and a large outdoor swimmng pool.The room was spacious and well equipped , and the service was good. The food in the restaurant was not all that great, but that may have been just the meal we chose... More

We stayed at Mahabs for a night last week. Not a very good experience. Their hospitality is not up to mark. It was raining a lot that day. After stopping in front of reception, no one came to help us to pick up luggage from the car. They just kept looking from the reception. In the end I had to... More

We were 6 friends to stay in the Mahabs Hotel and all together getting sick after the lunch (that we ate at the hotel). Two of us were pregnant womans : we worried little bit. When the departure came, we asked to the reception a kind of subsidy but they never heard something. Worst, they asked us to pay for... More

The hotel has an exceptional location just opposite the rock temples and the famous relief. It has a big lovely swimming pool (unluckily only open till 6pm) and rooms around it. The rooms are big and comfortable, a little less the bathroom, no shelves, usual Indian shower flooding the bathroom, cold water. There is complimentary water. I had dinner in... More

I stayed at this hotel for a night in Oct 15. Even tough I had made a pre-booking over the internet, I got a ground floor accommodation. the room was decent with basic amenities like fridge, tv, hot water. however, the beds and linen used could certainly have been better. the beds were joined together rather than single large bed....

Very good budget hotel with all basic amenities. Had stayed here for one night and enjoyed the stay. All attractions of Mahabalipuram are at walking distance. Hotel is right in the market but still away from noise as its bit inside. Food was also good.
