Not a very posh looking hotel, location is its main advantage. The Temple is very close, just a few minutes walking. The hotel is not centrally air conditioned, but has individual air conditioners in the room. No intercom - if you want something, you have to call the reception with your cell phone! Bed was neat and clean, but thicker... More

Whenever I travel to small town, it is difficult to find rooms for physically challenged. Really nice to see a room specially designed for physically challenged people. Thank you so much.And the stay was much comfort and closer to the temple .

This hotel did not live up to some of the reviews I have read. The staff we courteous and helpful, but the properly was poorly maintained and dirty. As a place of pilgrimage for many Chidambaram is an important destination - however, like this hotel, it holds little charm, otherwise.
