I arrived at Murugan guest house because I hadn't booked anything before my arrival. Murugan is ideally located, close to the bus stand, beach and restaurant. I paid 600 roupies for the room. The room is quite big, quite clean. The bathroom is not bad except the shower was not working for hot water. But you can wash yourself with... More

To be honest before we arrived we were grateful to have found anywhere to stay in Mamalapuram as everything seemed booked up over New Year. We had specified to the guy we spoke to that we wanted a room with two single... More

I chose to stay here because other reviewers had said that power cuts in Mamallapuram are frequent and of long durations, which is very much the case (sometimes up to 6hrs), and that this place was very good at turning on their generator when power cuts occurred, which was not the case at all. In defence of the other reviewers... More

I had stayed at a place called Hotel Ramakrishna in Mamallapuram. But after one night at the Ramakrishna, I moved one-half block down the street to the "Sri Murugan Guest House" where, for the same 1,000 rupees (single with AC), I found a much nicer room (with top-sheet and a toilet seat, two things missing at the Ramakrishna), air conditioning...

The staff couldn't be friendlier or more helpful - except they never did get us the toilet paper they promised. Rather dingy, but very well located and friendliness counts for a lot.

We went to Sri Murugan Guesthouse attracted by the Spanish restaurant upstairs, with breezy shade, and a swing that was the delight of the kids. Stayed on the AC Room, it was spacious and most important CLEAN, but real clean... the walls, the bathroom, the floor, everything was spotless and spacious...
