“Good location”
Reviewed 3 October 2013

Definitely not a five stars hotel, but the price is cheap and the room reasonably clean.
The rooms are noisy at night and you should choose the better worst between the dogs, the AC or the fan.The problem is as often in India the poor quality of the bathroom.
Staff are helpful and food in restaurant was ok. Breakfast buffet very basic. I do not understand why in most hotel in India we do not get homemade jam. They have so many nice fruits and it is so easy to make!
Location to visit the temples is excellent.

Even if not the best, Hotel Mahabs is pretty ggo location to stay with a pretty big and very clean swimming pool. Btw you have to pay more for the wifi. It's 200 meters from the seaside. Restaurant is ok but some other good ones in the city

this hotel is located in the city center on the main street, between the park with temples and the beach (5min by walk). it is in a closed area with a garden and a beautiful swimming pool. the deluxe room with AC we had was big and comfortable but the wifi internet connection did not work. also some minor things were broken or in a bas shape but nothing annoying. bed sheet was not well washed, but the bed was good. still the place is very pleasant and personnels are nice.
the restaurant provides quite good breakfast and dishes for lunch and diner. it worth to take at least one meal there. as most of places in India. the indian food is recommended if you don t want to be disappointed.

The location of the hotel is great . it is located right next to the bus stand which makes all the tourist places in mahabalipuram accessible on foot. we stayed at room 201 for a day . breakfast was complimentary but the spread wasnt very great . enjoyed my time at the pool. however one advise to the hotel admin is to spend on maintainence and change the old ac sets in the room. also pay some attention to the bathroom fixtures as well. otherwise decent place , ok food.

Disappointed. After booking 3 days with them they put us in a bad room with an old window noisy a/c that didn't work probably. Finally the a/c stopped working so they were forced to put us in a better room with a modern a/c unit. Rooms aren't that big. Furniture is ok. Breakfast is ok-they will make you an omelette-the rest of the food is indian. The coffee is instant. Not much food choices but service was good. The pool is near the restaurant & some of the rooms so other people can see you. I like Sea Breeze hotel's pool much better it has a fence. I was disappointed that they would deliberately put us in a bad room. Also the facet in bathroom was broke. The TV has some English channels. I would say Mamalla Heritage Mamallapuram Hotel is the best. It has a pool & 3 restaurants & an a/c room. Sea Breeze hotel is nice too. We ate at their restaurant -priced are good compared to other places. That's the problem with booking online they think they can treat you any old way at Hotel Mahabs. You have to walk to the beach about 10-15 minutes. Beach is dirty with trash on it & horse & cow dung. Waves are very strong so you can't really enjoy it. Many Indians are on holiday the month of May so it is very crowded & at the pools at the hotels also.

I was a very good stay. Food outside is not great. Hotel food is Ok. Good location and nice pool. We were able to cover all main attractions easily. This Hotel does not have a beach front. There are several other hotels in similar price range having beach front.
