“Perfect Place for Backpackers”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2010

I have been to Munnar on a week end and it was difficult to get an accommodation, in the city limit at an economy price. Thanks to Poopada at last. It is fine with (1200 + 15% tax ) for deluxe room. EP plan. When you visit this hotel try to get a room at the thrid / forth floor coz that offers best view, all rooms have small balcony, that can accommodate two pax. nice one . You can expect only basic food like omelet, bread, water etc. Else just take drive to the town or go for a 5 minutes walk- best restaurant for back packers is RAPSY just opp: vegetable market.

The room was very nice with clean bathroom & sheets but there was a large group of noisy travellers during the same period who were dancing and singing late into the night. Also, there were a set of drunk men which made us distinctly uncomfortable and we had to keep to our room and not go down to the restaurant for the dinner. A little away from the city and not walkable

The Staff is very courteous and helpful. They are always ready to help you with the queries. The rooms are clean. Food is good. Will advise you to have south indian food.
I was on a honeymoon trip . Every morning Mr. Sandeep at reception would suggest the places to visit for the day. I really enjoyed the stay and will surely revisit in future.

As part of our Kerala trip, we visited Munnar. As soon as we reached there, the surrounding scenic beauty attracted us.
The hotel is little elevated and have a garden with nice flowers and orchids. Due to its positional advantage, from the hotel nice view of tea plantation is found.
The hotel was clean. The rooms are moderate size. We took double-bedded room.
Restaurant facility is available in the hotel. The food served was hot and good.
During the time we were there, a large group was present in the hotel. On qurying, we found that hotel can accomodate larger group of people and arrange activities for them like camp fire etc.
We went for a Kathakali performance near-by. The ticket price was Rs 200.

Among the minus points about this hotel is -
The road from the main road to the gate of the hotel was not good. We were in a group and had a tempo traveller. And had some issues to get the vehicle, bigger in size than car, to the hotel gate.
There is no lift. But it would not be much a problem as the hotel is only few storied.
The double beds was little less wide.

I spent a couple of days at Poopada. It is meant for budget accommodation. The rooms are pretty basic and clean. Staff are very friendly. Location is close to the town.

I stayed at Poopada for 2 nights. This is one of the best budget properties in Munnar. The rooms rate average in terms of furnishings, comfort & cleanliness.

The property is elevated and is surrounded by the view of tea plantations and a village settlement. I had a room on the second floor and I had to climb up on foot. The rooms has a dressing table, TV and a verandah. My room overlooked a beautiful view of the tea plantations and woke up in the morning to the merry music of a bird singing outside my room.

The restaurant serves breakfast and meals, but I did not avail of any. The resort is located approx 2 Kms from Munnar market center. The resort is in front of KTDC Office where you can book & board the daily excursions arranged by the tourist office. The tourist office also maintains a garden with many flowering plans and a lake with boating facilities.

The resort is only 50-100 meters from the main road and shared/private transportation is available on the main road or can be requested at the reception. The reception and room service are decent.

Downsides :
1. One of the downsides is that the rooms do not have hot running water. Hot water is provided at your door only for few hours in the morning.
2. The building does not have lifts

  • Liked — great value for money
  • Disliked — hot water only in the morning, no lifts

We reached the hotel by 3 pm. We were welcomed by receptionist and agreed that our booking was confirmed. Immediately we got a double room that was spacious, moderate bathroom that was clean.

Balcony gave a good view of Munnar greenaries. It was dizzling, and a deep breath was enough to feel the nature's fragrance.

This hotel has one restaurant, which serves good food.
