Hotel Lakshmi
Reviewed March 5, 2012

I was rescued by the owner having looked at 2 grim rooms at the same rate elsewhere on arrival in Mamallapuram. It is very basic, but cheerful and with charm and well located. The staff are great. There are varying rooms at different rates and a swimming pool.

Room Tip: just take a look at a few

We stayed this hotel for 2 nights. This hotel is located very nearby the ocean. Very good location. This hotel manager has 2 hotels and we stayed Lakshmi Lodge. We went there this Oct. just before the best season, so they gave a lot of discount for us.
The room was ok for 2 nights but I think there were holls somewhere on the wall and we got a lot of mosquito bites, so we couldn't sleep well at night. And sometimes power was out and we couldn't take a shower in the night time.
Anyway the price of room rent was cheap, and it was located very nearby the sea. I think it is good for travellers who want save money!

Room Tip: Before you decide your room, you should check the room carefully, if they have no holls on the walls...

Just 10 minutes after checking in (and paying in advance...) we got our first disappointment. They said that swimming pool was included in the prize and then wanted us to pay for using it. After some discussion, we could use it, but it was quite dirty...
Their services (eg restaurant and internet) are worse and a bit more expensive than others in the area.
The stuff was not that friendly and not much worried about the needs of their customers (not to say about maintaining the rooms).
As if it was not enough, during the night it rained and water came into the room through one of the (CLOSED!) windows, making half of our stuff wet, which made our trip to our next destination quite uncomfortable. There are many places in Mamallapuram, try somewhere else!
