- the breakfast buffet was not served the first day; they pretended it was not included in my package; saturday night there was a noisy party in the conference room till 10:30 PM -> impossible to rest; overall to expensive

Indeco, quirky, comfortablePosted Apr 27, 2012
Pros: Location, food quality, antique collection, grounds
Cons: Value for quality, and that's nitpicking
Location: On the road leading to the Shore Temple, nearly equidistant from Arjuna's Penance. 10 min walk to the backpackers ghetto, colorful fisherman's boats.
As my first stop in Tamil Nadu (barring an overnight after a long flight to Chennai), Indeco was quite good. The room was comfortable and clean enough; there's full power backup to deal with the ongoing power cuts TN is going through right now. Grounds are well kept and shady. Quality of food for breakfast (excellent vada sambar) and dinner was very good. Wifi speed in the lobby was excellent (though ask for the DNS number to plug into your settings if you can't connect at first). The fact that the owners' family's antique collection is scattered around the property is quirky in alternating kitschy and fascinating way. Definitely take your time to read all the caption cards if you're interested in colonial history. Make sure to take a walk down to the beach via the path off the property, past what I assume used to be a proper beach house, devastated in the tsunami and still not rebuilt, now in ruins. The location is good, and since Mahabalipuram is pretty small everything's in walking distance (if a sweaty walking distance). That there are two conference halls on the grounds, in constant use when I was there, adds to the experience of being in day-to-day and not just tourist India. My only complaint is that if feels slightly overpriced for what you're getting. There are plenty of hotels at this price point in India that have a bit more polish to them. All told I enjoyed my time at Indeco and should I go back to Mahabalipuram would certainly consider staying there again.

Ok HotelPosted Dec 5, 2011 on Hotels.com
We stayed here only one day. staff was very nice, Hotel is old one so you can not do much about it. It is right next to beach and shore temple. they have a nice small museum. Hotel may need a major upgrade.Bring mosquito repellent. Staff was nice to let me use their computer for internet. Breakfast was disappointing compared to some other hotels during my trip to Tamilnadu.

too expensive for the qualityPosted Nov 18, 2009
room with strong smell of funghi, rain dripping into the hotel, very damp and humid, bath room questionable. fine if you pay no more than 5$, but this is not the case here
