Cheap prices, including food. Very friendly and supportive staff. Nice clean AC room and good food. Quiet surroundings and a nice view from the second floor. Also you can rent stylish old bicycles to go around town. Don't go to the main beach, it's too crowded. Drive a little further and enjoy super nice deserted beaches with only the occasional...

The authentic cuisine is prepared painstakingly...

We booked this room based on tripadvisor and LP recommendations. Mr Runi keeps a fine budget establishment. Our room was quite small, 4x3 m, equiped with AC, fan and ensuite bathroom. No towels were provided and there's not a single trash can, not even in the bathroom. The room has a single window behind the bed, but it's just a...

Very friendly and helpful owner and staff, excellent food, free wifi and free bicycles to roam around Passikudah and Kalkudah beaches, this place has everything you need for very reasonable price. Other comments on Tripadvisor are right: the cheapest place to stay in Kalkudah but surely one of the best.
