“Hmm.. Not so good bedroll”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Stay was fine, i felt the Bed roll was not so good, it was smelly. The kind of smell that cloths build in with swamp atmosphere. Hotel staff was friendly, room service was good, but not the food :P
It is a calm place. But i felt it could have been better managed, but for this price may be this is best you can get.

Hot water available only in the morning that too for a very limited time.
Bathrooms are not good at all and the wash basins are very old. There are no spary in the toilets.
Bed sheets and blankets were also not clean.
The only positive point was the food, good food at a very cheap cost.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

I went in the off season. Rooms were really good and full value for money.
Ambience was really good, no rush and no problems at all. Loved the building and the service.
People usually check these comments for the drawbacks, so here they are:
1. The location of the hotel is not good at all. Its in a small street, though close to the main market.
2. Restaurant closes pretty early(though menu shows the timing of 10:30pm).

Very good option for families.

Room Tip: Try to book rooms on the top floor for better view!

One of the best budget hotel in Ooty for family trip. Very friendly and helpful people at recption.
Service is good and people are ready to help at anytime.
Hotel is at a lil distance from the main road, quite and peaceful.
Rooms and everything inside rooms were neatly cleaned.
Few of the menu items were good and cheaper than outside restaurants.

I along with my family(4 adult) booked 2 rooms in Hotel Khems. Checked in on 21 Jun and stayed 2 days.
I liked everything about Hotel Khems but it could be better so has given only 4 rating.

Thank you Hotel Khems for making it good for us.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms with open outside view.

A good budget hotel. Nice people at reception and cater to the needs of guests.e.g., there weren't any towels in the bathroom so on request they provided it. Disappointed of not having clean bed sheets and blanket cover. Frequent power outages. It seems they had some problem at that time only. Food is really good except the soup,but do follow the restaurant timings, againfir hot water timings also. Else u may miss both and may regret. I feel room management has to be a little good. Overall a silent and quite place to rest. Staff is cordial and will ensure you don't face problems. Have a happy stay.
