The otherwise serene Mahabalipuram can be a frustrating experience if you choose a wrong place to stay! Please avoid this property for its terrible quality of rooms, horrible service and forgettable experience.

We stayed here for two days. It is pretty clean. Staffs are prompt and courteous. It is very near to the beach. Room is not very spacious but has a king size bed which should be good for two. They have a roof top restaurant and the room service of food is available which you will get in quick time.... More

The room is pretty small but had a king size bed and toilets were pretty clean.. I would recommend one can have food outside since the food was good but hygiene lapsed.... More

The staircase looks quite bad, but the room itself on the third floor was clean and comfortable. Breakfast very ordinary, therefore next day had it in the German Bakery. Staff was friendly, location is also great. Free Wi Fi in the room

Very friendly and welcoming staff. The (cheaper) room was not so clean. Bedsheets were washed, but old and had spots (rust, grease) that could not be cleaned anymore. Rest of the room was also a bit dirty. For this price it is OK that things are old and rooms are small, but they could do a better job at cleaning... More

The hotel staff were very friendly and the service was pretty good, a lot of renovations were being done, so there didn't seem to be that many guests. Rooms were fine, clean with a good sized bathroom - with easily the best bed in the whole of India! The only drawback was that I would have liked a window -... More

A friend and I stayed at the hotel for one night at the beginning of November. We were very pleased with the friendly and helpful staff. The hotel is well located to the town centre and easy walking distance for the ancient sights, shopping and restaurants. We had an AC room room, with fan on the second floor. The room... More

Bound to select because there is no option for 0. The customer service is very poor. It is like a 3rd grade lodge administration. I booked for a day NON_AC and I checked in during evening 5:30 PM. While checking in upgraded to AC by paying Rs.500/- extra which was for 24 hour as per their commitment. Next day I... More

Balajisma, Owner at Hotel Ramakrishna, responded to this review

Dear guest, Thank you for writing on Trip Advisor. Few points we want to clarify , 1) we never do such cheap behaviour to any of our guest, being small hotel we have been successful till date , is only because of our service and kind attitude to all our guest. 2) we have Intercom telephones in all our Rooms...
