Nice guest house, clean room, efficient shower, welcoming staff and good breakfast ! Room for 4 people = 3300 INR, delicious muesli breakfast with fruit included (up to 150inr). In the very centre of Mahabalipuram, closed to the beach, handcraft shops (cheap compared to other places) and the restaurants !
