“Good hotel for a night stay”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

Budget hotel with low cost... Newly renovated hotel with lift rates also normal. Hotel management should concentrate on room boys and their neatness.
Rooms having individual heater and ac control is nice and easy to use. If mineral water is provided to guest means hotel is good enough in chidambaram.

Unless you are totally out of your mind feel free to stay at this hotel. Any sane human will become insane to certain extend the next morning if you survive the night. The hotel is totally opposite of what it's name says. It is a run down building, dirty rooms and horribly dirty toilet. The is small and with musky odour. There is no place for the word cleanliness is this hotel and it is quite costly for this type of hotel. I would strongly suggest you avoid ALL hotels in Chidambaram town. All of them are same. There are good hotels outskirts of the town probably 30 min away. Stay there and make day trip. The one and only main attraction here is the Chidambaram temple with its grand architecture.

The most USELESS HOTEL I have stayed in. A TORTURE for 2 days as I had already paid.
The service is THIRD CLASS as waiters cannot speak English or Hindi. They did not
serve the complimentary breakfast on one day sayingh that no guests are staying. THE WORST
HOTEL. AVOID IT OR SUFFER.

And this hotel you can find Lizards , entering even before you enter to the rooms.(Every where you can find Lizards)
Close to the Chidambaram Bus Stop & Very Close to Railway Station.
Food is so expensive , which is too much for that Location .
Rooms are not well maintained .

What a horrible room. The room was tiny, smelled of mold (which were clearly visible on the wall), very noisy, hardly any daylight and dirty sheets (I don't think they changed them after the previous guests. The wash basin was torn of from the wall, so no wash baisin availible. Reception was not unfriendly, but not very helpful either. The restaurant was very poor, the waiter rude (i think he was just shy and acted rude to hide his shyness), the breakfast was cold and on the first morning not availible (apperently we were to late, but we were not informed what time it ended.) The only things I liked was the small garden downstairs were you could sit and have a cold drink, but this really the only thing I liked.

Very average, rooms are basic, not great. some staff helpful and some not so helpful. close to railway station you keep hearing the trains honking away and disturbing your sleep.
housekeeping could be better, we had 2 rooms, 1 room could not be locked and the other did not have proper lighting. transit hotel fit for a nights stay. restaurant is just fine not great. a bit pricey for the facilities and do not expect big things.

Room Tip: check with the room boy for a room that does not face the railway station, trains keep honking and d...
