Chrissie is one of decent budget property in Thekkady. We stayed for two nights here. The best part is the lush green trees facing the rooms and you just relax in the balcony amidst the greenery. Another things worth mentioning is the yoga room on the top floor where you can meditate. The hotel staff is helpful. There are few...

The rooms are small, simple but clean, including a little balcony. Staff is friendly and helpful. It's a little walk into the center (5-10 mins) but manageable. And there are restaurant's / shops in along the stret so you don't have to go far.

The rooms were very well maintained and each room had a balcony with view. It was also available with free wifi.The rooms were built...
