Reviewed 20 October 2013

We booked the Standard rooms for our weekend stays for last couple of times, in this year. Itself,( This says How Good, Hotel Ramakrishna is..!! ) & it is a unique place to stay, Really. The good owner Mr. Balaji, kindly replied to my queries instantly, when booking. The staff also were friendly. I had no problems in checking in, or ordering service of the staff. Thank you,very much for making our stay pleasant.
The Rooms are clean & facilities are good. The rooms we had was not big but Pretty! The dinner was good and the distance to the beach is just 5 mins walk. Hotel Ramakrishna is near to Bus stand, shopping, restaurants, sight seeing places. It may seem little bit costly for a budget travelers but for the clean, good interior designed, pleasant rooms & Hotel Ramakrishna Good Hospitality., Its really worth every rupee u pay, Its sure Value for Money! U can enjoy peacefully & its really very safe place to stay for families & couples. As many people have reviewed it. Hotel Ramakrishna is a place you would definitely come back to and recommend to your friends.

Hotel Ramakrishna is well-located on the street with lots of local shops and nice cafes"n'restaurants, just 5 mins walking distance from the beach and the same distance to Arjuna's Penance. Not big but very clean standard room with huuuuge bed, TV, fan and A\C upon request. Very safe place with lots of security cameras. On the roof there's a very nice restaurant with yummy biryani and lassi!) And, of course, very very friendly staff is the best advantage of this place!! Thank you, Adon, Anand and Bikki for your hospitality and 24/7 smiles!!:))))

Very conveniently placed in the heart of Mahabalipuram it is just a 5-minute walk from Mamallapuram beach and a bus station, great view from sweet rooftop restaurant. Brilliantly helpful staff. The charming owner, Balaji, will do anything to help - refurbished spacious and clean room, generator quickly started when electricity cut off so fan continued to keep us cool.
Things which could be improved were - too loud western music in the restaurant and instant rather than real coffee... apparently a swimming pool is planned which would be a real boon as it was jolly hot when we were there in Jan/Feb '13. That's a very good place to stay for few days.

excellent room from the inside you walk up to it and looks like a ghost house though the room was very good. The service was pathetic along with the food. The owner Balagisma was rude. Dint care for customer service acted like was doing you a favor. very bad communication no organization just because of this i will not go back.

Room Tip: check out temple bay or mamalla way better

Dear guest

Thank you for sharing your experience on Trip Advisor.Just because you pay room rent to us, you cannot treat our staffs as slaves, we have zero tolerance when you don't treat our staff with respect,and being in hospitality service we try to make our guest feel comfortable, it doesn't mean that we can hear all your bad language. Its always Give Respect and Take Respect.Even Five star Hotels will not tolerate when you don't respect them.Do behave yourself and try to respect others.Do Not use Trip Advisor in a wrong way.

We will Continue to serve our guest with quality of service to make them feel home.

Good hotel in one of the main streets with loads of shops, restaurants & cafés. The beach is right at the end & everything to see is in walking distance. The 5 Rathas are about a 20 min walk though so don't go in the heat of the day. The hotel itself is well maintained, clean with nice rooms. The TV didn't work but we were only there for a couple of days so didn't mind. AC worked very well; we were too cold & couldn't work out how to turn it down haha! We didn't try the restaurant as we ate at other places. Wifi connection in reception area was good, but wear DEET as there are lots of mozzies!
