Reviewed 26 April 2014 via mobile

We had been to Kanchipuram with family for Darshan of Kamakshi and Ekambareswarar temple as well as purchase of silk sarees. We saw the above hotel on the Internet and booked it. But when we reached there we were disappointed with the hotel.The A/Cs were not working properly.Bathrooms were not clean.Since we reached late at night we couldn't check in to some other place.

Stayed: July 2013, travelled with family

All things even food to be settled in advance. Dude, when somebody is ordering something to eat, show some privacy and respect while he is taking food.
Even restaurant provides the bills only after finishing.

Terrible smell at room. AC was sounding like hell. Hot water was not available when I was staying.
Looks good from outside, terrible from inside.

Overall, I am disappointed.

Very old hotel with budgeted rates. Rooms are pretty ok. preferable for a very short stay.
Restaurant food also is not that great. Advantage being the location which is very near to
all the temples. kamakshi temple is walkable and this is advantage for tourists visiting.

Stayed here for 1 night in the 2nd floor. Location is good, close to the temple. The exterior and the lobby are well maintained. The rooms are a whole different story. The paint was peeling off in several places, the sheets had stains and when requested to change, they said that the stains are old and the sheets were washed, which seemed true, the sheets seemed washed, but who would like to sleep on a stained sheet even if it was washed, especially when they charge 1800 Rs per night. We requested an extra bed, but cot was not provided. The bath rooms were bad, the heater did not work and when we complained, they did come and took a look and was told that it had to be repaired and could not be done at that time and so we had to use cold water for bathing. We did see a cockroach in the bath room. I would not recommend this to anyone, especially when they charge 1800 per night

Room Tip: Our friends stayed on the first floor and the room there seemed to be better.

This hotel is located in a calm place so one can have a good sleep provided the a/c does not make any sound and the linen provided is neat and clean. They charge Rs 1800 per night which is quite steep compared to the quality of the rooms which are a bit run down and the sheet provided have stains and holes though they are washed. Some of the switches do not work.
The management has to make a serious effort to improve the condition of the rooms, provide neat and clean linen and towels. Stay only if you have no better option. If you can get a discounted room for Rs 1500 it may be ok. They charge Rs 300 for extra person but do not provide a cot but a mattress on the floor
Please check the room before making the payment.

Room Tip: Please check the rooms and the linen before making the payment

I had stayed at this hotel on 17/18 August 2012 along with my family. This is my second stay at this hotel, earlier I had stayed in March 2012. The rooms are spacious. Service is pretty ok. Ideally located being very close to the temple.

Room Tip: They supply hot water from solar heaters. So, be prepared to call reception in case hot water is not...

I stayed with my friends (25 of us) at this hotel on 6/2/2012.There were few defects (fan control knob missing,telephone for decorative purpose,lights were fused and bed sheets were dirty)I brought to the front desk at 5 p.m. 10 minutes after check in.My friends also complained about the condition of the rooms.The front desk girls called the manager and he said he will attend to it.I again reminded him to attend to the defects before leaving for kanchi temple.We were back about 8 p.m and asked the manager whether problems were settled.To our surprise this arrogant manager told us 'our electricians just went back home and why we didn't complain earlier'.This is not the only hotel in India that is screwd up almost all hotels.I am really shy to say that I am an Indian because this arrogant people are very good at giving excuses and never learn from others.I strongly suggest that the management visit hotels at other contries or sack the manager.These people are only interested in money.Every hotels we visit is almost the same.It seem like they never check the condition of the rooms periodically.God knows what the housekeeping is responsible of.

Room Tip: Make sure you check the room before payment.
