We stayed here in September 2014. The location is superb, just opposite the bus stand so if you are arriving from Chennai as we did, you get dropped off practically at the hotel. Mahabalipuram is a small town so from here you can walk to all the main attractions. The big selling point of this place is the pool and... More

I stayed many times in this hotel. Hotel is located just opposite the bus stand so if any one comes from chennai city by public transport, easy access. The hotel is located in very small area, but the way how managment used the space really appreciated. Kind of mixed (Indian and foreign) crowd always you can see in the hotel.... More

Resort was good to stay. Nice hospitality. Near to almost all places to visit in Mahabalipuram. We booked two rooms during our stay, out of which one room had flies and AC wasnt working properly. They provide good massage services.

I stayed in Hotel Mahabs for two nights while touring India solo on a motorcycle, and had a good experience overall. The staff are very friendly, always willing to help out or just to chat. There is a large, clean swimming pool and a good restaurant on site, which along with the spacious balconies make for a relaxing stay. Things... More

Simple rooms (each with relaxed balcony area), close to the centre of town and beach, walkable to the main sights, local restaurants and shopping. Restaurant and breakfast is quite good. However the rooms are tired-looking and hot water was erratic. A decent option if you are on a budget and location is the main priority.

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

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
