Good boarding House in basic Indian style, but rooms have a large clean working fridge, fans and A/C (also working). The rooms are clean and of a reasonable size with comfortable beds. The area inside the hotel is pleasant and the guests tend to be repeat visitors so there is a pleasant atmosphere. The furnishings do tend more to shabby... More

We had a balcony with... More

Affordable hotel in the beach location Kovalam. Payed Rs. 700 per night. The room is large, but not too well maintaned. Especially the bathroom, the fittings were rusty, and water supply was not consistent. The contact was friendly, but there was not a lot of staff around. Location is OK, the beach is very near, but there are no views.... More
