I stayed for two days from 15-04-2022 to 17-04-2022 along with my family. It is a wonderful experience altogether and you can't find a better stay at Chidambaram. The owner of the property is a Retired Professor of Annamalai University and he is a very humble and nice person and you will feel like being at your relatives home. The property has AC and Non-Ac accommodations with Fridge, Mini-Gas Stove and basic vessels. They provide milk packets, coffee and tea powders and we can make our own coffee or tea. They are providing only stay and no restaurant attached. But as it is a very small town, you can go around and have food at various restaurants or you can order online using food delivery apps like Zaaroz, Zomato... (The owner of the property will send all the details of restaurants to your WhatsApp number once you confirm your booking, Adyar Ananda Bhavan, Sri Krishna Vilas, Palagaram are popular restaurants I would recommend). Pros: Clean & Hygiene Cons: Road side parking (but manageable)

It was really a pleasure to stay at Homestay Senthil Akam. We had been there in the month of November 2021 with my old parents, for a pilgrimage. The hospitality of the owner was too good. Facilities made us feel as if we were at home. He also guided us with the temple timings, auto rickshaw contacts and referred good food joints. Facility to make coffee / tea with necessary utensils and ingredients was so great. Altogether had a great time staying there. More than anything, my parents were very comfortable and are full of appreciation for the owner and the room - Hema

Being solo and new to the location and not knowing language my choice of homestay senthil akam was wonderful. The owner was so helpful and would go out of his way to provide all facilities and knowledge about tourist sites. Being able to use the kitchen again was really useful. I would recommend this homestay to tourists visiting chidambaram since it is close to the famous natraja temple also.

Visited Chithambaram as pilgrimage. Stayed in Senthil akam. It was a wonderful experience at Senthil akam. It was like another home. The owner has meticulously thought and provided all basic needs for a touring family. Henhas also provided needful information like temple timings, puja details and what to see around the temple City. We had a very comfortable and safe stay at Senthil akam. Though it is not luxurious, it can be termed as the most comfortable stay for the touring family.
