“Stay was Ok not great”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2013

We reached and checked in@ khems around 3PM and found the restaurant doesnt serves Lunch (only breakfast & Dinner available). So we all (my family) had to fresh-en-up quickly and went out for scouting lunch outside in blood chilling cold. (-ve point / priority- High)

We had to change one of the room because the toilets were filthy, doors dont get locked, seats are scrachy & dirty, and even found all such budget rooms are more or less the same. (-ve point / Priority - High)

Hotel beds and pillows are not very nice, carpets over room were wet and stinking. No sunrays entering onto backside room (most rooms). Front rooms are merely few, but the bed are small in size. (-ve Point / Priority - High)

Over dinner we ordered food and went down to the restaurant, food was delicious and economical (plus point / Priority - Medium).
Hotel staffs were helpful and good in behavious, responsive, and adhere to demands. (Plus point / Priority - high)

Location of the hotel is within 2Km radius of city and all ammentities available in walkable distance. (Plus point / Priority - Medium)

Overall Rating from my perspective = 2.5 to 3.0 out of 5.0

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.

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.
