I found this hotel in the Indian Lonely Planet guidebook, but I unfortunately did not have a good experience. As I was just passing through Kanyakumari for a quick visit to the tip of India on my multi-month backpacking tour of India, I was planning for just a one night stay and did not expect much. Thus, when I first inspecte the room, I agreed to it even though it was very basic and did not look to clean, mostly the bathroom was dirty (500 Rs price convinced me). However, when I returned after dinner to my bed, I started to notice bugs crawling on the sheet and me. I examined to find many species and a few that look like bed bugs. After looking at google images, I confirmed that they were bed bugs. It took some arguing and visual proof to get my money back before I left to the place next door. I would not recommend unless you are a budget, lucky traveller.
