Service is ok. Our room had a big window facing on a wall with some cables hanging in front. Bedsheets were quite dirty and looked like they have been used already. We had a lot of stains on the bathroom mirror and we found cockroaches. Spending about 60$ we expected much better conditions.

The hotel is not terrible, but it's not good enough for the price I paid. The hotel does not have any garden where you can rest, and it's juts off a very busy street It's not far from Marina Beach that you can reach by auto rickshaw
