      Simple and stylish”

      For the price this was lovely. The room with aircon had a massive hole in the wall to outside... So mosquitos can still get in I can tell the Aircon was not cleaned for a while, it left our throats dry in the morning so we resorted to the fan the next day cause we couldn't stand the mouldy dusty aircon. The bathroom and bedroom is super cute and fun Short walk to the cliff beach. Ok tasting food nothing to write home about (mostly dry low quality bread, soggy fries) better to order the veggie bowls and pizza - those are super fantastic. Seating area is cute and great! Though fans are thick with dust. Overall it's ok for the price.

      Beautiful place”

      Pros - chic rooms, close to the main cliff. Lovely outdoor seating . Breakfast was average . We preferred the breakfast at their sister property - true Thomas. Better toiletries can be provided . Room cleaning doesn't happen everyday . You have to call them and get it clean which was really annoying. The staff was sweet. Esp the manager , he arranged the car and tour to Munroe island . Even with minor glitches would recommend staying here

      A wonderful, family feel stay the ambience was beautiful and the staff were amazing !!”

      Location is fabulous for the beach, its just a 5 minute walk away, the villa we had was clean comfortable and cosy. A really safe clean place for a family. The restaurant offered great choice and value for money, food was delicious and the staff very attentive. The hotel owner is one in a million he helped us arranged all of our trips, gave us the best tips and times to go, arranged autos and cabs for us, nothing was took much for him, without a doubt he is a major reason for the success of this beautiful hotel. A massive thank you for helping us create memories here! There is no pool but there is one on the way...but we were able to use a pool next door again arranged by the owner. A must stay if you are heading to Varkala it was a wonderful relaxing break made better but a great hotel and stay!

      Nice hotel with a great location”

      Calling it a hotel might be a bit far fetched. It's one of those green, organic massive home stay/resort sort of property. Food is good, however it's mostly designed as per the taste buds of Europeans. It is 4 min walk from famous varkala cliff, where most of the cafes are located. These are perfectly above the varkala beach, so you will have beach front view of you sit in any of the cafes.

      Not as expected”

      Although the place has a cool vibe, our room was old and not very clean. That was a huge disappointment as we were expecting a new, fresh and clean interior basing on the pictures posted online. The door or walls couldn’t be tight cause a lot of bugs entered our room, including a few big cockroaches. In the morning we also found a few bugs close to our pillows. There was no mosquito net in the room, however maybe if you ask they can give you one. We experienced a few electricity cuts in the night, everything went completely dark but someone from the staff came to give us candles. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We stayed there for one night only which is why we didn’t ask if there’s another room available to swap. It’s a shame Inda Hotel wasn’t as we expected as we looked forward for this accommodation.

      Not a Hotel”

      This property is more of a hostel for backpackers and alike just providing basic rooms with attached bath. There are some basic facilities which a hotel should have but were missing here. They have no room service, infact no telephones in the rooms.The mattress are highly uncomfortable and really need to be changed. So are the bedsheets. They painted some sticks white and used them everywhere- curtain fittings, lamp stands etc; a really rickety arrangement. They have NO power backup. There was a night long power cut and the only arrangements they had were candles and mosquito repellants. On being asked about the backup I was told that theirs was a small property and not ‘Taj’, so they don’t have gen set.We spent the night restlessly. They have a small cafe in the name of restaurant, which serves a few set items and they are highly priced. We had our meals at the beachside restaurants. So if you are looking for a comfortable and hassle free stay, I would suggest look someplace else.There are some good hotels nearby.

      Not worth the money”

      First the good things: nice room and bathroom, ok breakfast. They do not use pastic but have metal straws and serve water in bottles - much appreciated. It is within walking distance of the beach which is also good but then you would expect the room to be cleaned daily. We stayed here three nights and the room was never cleaned. No place to store clothes in the room. Room was also damp and humid, the fan didn't help much. Staff at the restaurant seemed bored and I had to greet every morning before I was greeted back. I know this seems trivial but it does set the tone... restaurant was not kept up to standard with many dead plants as a result. Also it was not easy to find the place, even for the taxi driver. At this price it felt like we were being ripped off - more than 60 Euro for a non-ac room that does not get cleaned! There are much cheaper places on the cliff above the beach.

      I cannot be praising about InDa Hotel enough! From the amazingly friendly and thoughtful staff to the gorgeous little white-washed huts to the free - and delicious - breakfast, this is how all hotels in India should be like - not forgetting the very affordable price. Many other hotels could learn from these guys! We planned to stay only a single night but spent all three here not finding anything better even if wanted to. Staff will make sure you have a good time, and I have not seen such honesty anywhere as here. Make sure you book in advance as the place is quite popular - and for a reason!
