The rooms for look like the pictures but are fine and the aircon and wifi works. Adon and Moses were so helpful. Adon teaches the yoga as well and I thought he was very professional yoga teacher - yoga life yoga studio. It's a great location also, close to all the sites and restaurants.

I saw all the photos for their room that are available in their own websites. It looks very attractive and nice so I booked it. But the problem starts when I reached there, the reality is totally different. Washroom was not hygienic and smells very badly. They provide me a room on 3rd floor and no lift service, so every...

After searching Trip Advisor and other sites, I called to book one night in a deluxe ac room. The pleasant desk clerk suggested that I come check out the room and then decide. Fair enough. Upon arrival, we were shown room 205 which was a standard ac room. There was a weird old funky smell to the room which also... More

We had been to Mahabalipuram for 3 nights. After searching thoroughly we booked our stay with this hotel, and wasn't disappointed at all. The hotel is located among many hotels in a street, which is altogether very touristy. The major plus point is that the beach is at a walkable distance, and so are the remaining touristy spots such as... More

Hotel Ramakrishna certainly doesn't look like the photos, but given the price-point and location, it's a fine place to stay in Mahabalipuram. We only stayed one night (plenty to see the sights.) They had clearly forgotten our reservation (which I made the evening prior, and paid), and were not willing to communicate the error. Worth double-confirming. The upper level is... More
