Ok this place isn't entirely terrible... the bugs one has to get used to in smaller towns like Kanyakumari in India. The room itself isn't very good.. its ok. The main problem are the rates.. but I found all over the town the hotels had inflated the rates - typical tourist place problem! The room costed 1000/- if we dont use the AC and 1500/- if we do use the AC. Paying 1500 for that room is out of question for me... 1000 /- is OK.. ideally at 700/- it would be a much better deal.
They had kept a mineral water bottle in the room. Lot of hotels give it complimentary but after drinking it. The people told me that it will be charged additionally. Also when leaving none of the staff helped me with my luggage (not that I needed any help, but still the gesture would be good) instead they started asking me for tip! Even though I stayed for a day and hadn't interacted with any of them... so it was an uncomfortable experience.
Overall though its safe and decent place which is important since I was traveling solo.
