Not worth for Money at all.”

Not worthy for the money at all. No swimming pool. Don't book the resorts by seeing the pictures uploaded here. Waste of money. Bathrooms are too worst and even Frogs are coming inside the bathroom.

Quiet and pleasant; 3km from Ramamasramam”

It is well located down a small lane away from the noisy and busy main road. Although the view of Arunachala is really only from the roof top. Probably it is th ebest hotel that is not too far from the Ashram and Arunachala. The room themselves are okay, but do not have a fridge and the wifi does not work in the rooms only in the restaurant. The general cleanliness needs a womans. touch. As they have nearly an all male staff, the feminine care and cleanliness is missing. Most memorable thing of the hotel: the smiling waiter and the cirlcular layout of room around a (sort of) garden. The swimmin pool is also pleasant with towels provided.

das Pool war ok.

Internetverbindung war schwach Zimmer war für ein 3-Sterne Hotel katastrophal. Die Dusche hatte kein Warmwasser und trotz täglicher Beschwerde war das Management nicht in der Lage, den Missstand zu beheben. Bettelnde Mitarbeiter deuten auf keine/unregelmässige Bezahlung hin.

Il periodo era molto affollato, essendo ai primi dell'anno. La struttura e la sua posizione sono piacevoli, la gestione lascia un po' a desiderare.
