Extremely helpful staff that helped us get oriented for our first few days in India. Not far from Marina Beach and some tasty restaurants. Rooms are basic but everything functions which was great. You can reserve a room online at their website which was helpful.

The guesthouse has a very good location. Quite close to the train and not too far from the airport (around 40 minutes by tuk tuk or taxi when there is no trafic). There is also a direct bus from the airport. The guesthouse is located 15 - 20 minutes by walk from the beach. Rooms are very clean. Wifi is... More

Rooms basic bit good enough. I mean you don't spend much time in them really apart frm sleeping. Location is good. Walking distance to... More

The hotel keeps its most basic promise : to provide a room. But don't expect much more : no real toilets (sorry, a hole in the bathroom's floor is not what I call toilets), no hot water, no sheets and very doubtful cleaning. Also, wifi is 50 roupies, and works just from the reception (I was on the ground floor... More

We come to this hotel since early 2000 and we have visited the hotel many times. Located in the heart of the colourful Triplicane area, it has always been an oasis of calm and peace.The rooms are simple but clean with tiled walls. Since a couple of years there is a new extension. Always arriving around 01.00 a.m. due to... More

Don't expect much. This is a basic hotel in a big city in India. If this is your first trip, you will be surprised and if you already know India, well, this is one impersonal hotel, not very clean, but if you are lookingfor a bed and a shower, well, this is good enough. Location is really good. So, for... More

We stayed stayed twice at The Paradise, en route to and on our return from Sri Lanka. In between they looked after our surplus luggage in a secure room, for just R10 per day! Clean, comfortable rooms, and reasonably quiet being off the main road. Staff were friendly and helpful. Location is good, being a short distance from an airport... More
