“Best "Value For Money" hotel in Kanyakumari”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

As we were looking for an affordable but nice hotel(always difficult to find) to stay we decided to book a room at The Gopinivas Grand Hotel. Travelling through India, we had experience with quite many types of hotels, but in none of all the hotels we stayed the staff was such friendly and helpful. Below, we listed some of the most important points in which you as a tourist could be interested:

Rooms:
We booked a superior double room. It was very clean, attractive and neat. Furthermore, we got fresh towels etc. Both AC and Fan were working perfectly and we had 24 hours hot water. TV was also available and working with many channels to select between Bollywood, Hollywood Blockbusters or series.
Location:
The location was simply perfect. We had a one minute walk to Vivekananda rock memorial and beach were you can sit on the stone chairs and relax in the evening while watching sunset. What was even more important is that we could walk to all the sites we wants to see since the hotel is so central.

Staff:
The staff was VERY nice, friendly and helpful, and although we stayed only one night (since we were heading to trivandrum afterwards), they more than kindly offered us to keep our luggage for the day, use the internet to print out our tickets, and - what was the best - we got fresh towels in the evening so that we can take a shower in one of their bathrooms before we headed for the next destination.

Also the hotel look charming from the outside, the rooms, staff and location are totally worth it. Considering another stay in Kanyakumari, we would certainly stay once more in this hotel.

It is claimed to be a 3-star hotel and have a deceptive facade and entrance. We landed in this hotel in a rather bizarre circumstance. [See my review of Hotel Sea Face for details.] The non-AC room offered to us had no provision for ventilation, let alone a window. We were fortunate to get some decent accommodation in a hotel just opposite the road and got out of the mess we landed into.

Room Tip: Check out if the room has a widow or some ventilation, before you book a room here.

I can't say i was overjoyed by the property but we had a good stay......food was fine, stay was fine - on the whole a pretty average stay. relaxing but average. its safe and in the market place - close to sunrise point, kumariamman temple, triveni sangam and vivekanand rock memorial so cuts out the need for a lot of transportation...people were co-operative

I had book this hotel by reading it's reviews on trip advisor and really i have Nothing to complain about, service was great, rooms was clean but a little compact . The best feature of the hotel was its location, walking distance to the temple , the sunset point , Vivekananda Rock Memorial and shopping, etc. The rooms were clean and the staff was helpful. They do not have a resturant but room service is available.However you have to to pay on the spot if you have ordered any thing to eat or drink . I would gladly recommend it to my friends and family.

The stay in GopiNIvas Grand was very horrible. the manager on the reception kept asking for payment though i had made half payment advance online. The manager was also not ready to give the hotel bill and was trying to say that the online payment i made through IFSC mode was not recieved by them. I told him if that is the case how can he charge only half amount.
I dont know why he refused to give the bill but i insisted and took the bill. The room was cleaned only after repeated requests. The balcony was very dirty and smelled of the non vegetarian food being cooker outside. The room service is prompt but poor as the food served is cold and non-tasty.
The room was small but clean. The toilet is clean. But there is no Chair. THe tv in the room only displays tamil channels.
The hotel looks good from outside. But inside story only the people living inside know. Never stay here if you value your money.
The sound of air conditioner running in other rooms disturbs the sleep horribly. The water heater does not work properly and the switch keeps tripping off, may be due to some plan of the Hoteliers.

Room Tip: Shiva Murugan Hotel Looks Good.

Our check-in time was at 12.00pm. When we reached at 1.30 pm , the rooms were not done. we had to wait for 45 mins to get our rooms. Secondly, the rooms were a complete dis appointment. Family suite was in the basement with not even a bit of light. the rooms were stuffy. Thank god we opted for ac rooms, so at least we could survive. The hotel does not have a restaurant. waiters offer to get food from outside ,but i suggest it is better to hunt for a nice place to eat on ur own. Hotel recommendations are really terrible. Waiters are only interested in tips.And even if u dont intend to pay they shamelessly demand for " bakshish".
We checked the other rooms which were far better than ours, but unfortunately unavailable.
Genuine suggestion , dont opt for family suite. Rest an average hotel to stay.
For dining sea view restaurant offers good food. and there is one hotel sarvana.(pure veg) just outside kanyakumari temple which serves good food.

Room Tip: Good budget hotel but confirm that rooms r on higher floor if u r claustrophobic
