Loved having a Big quiet room but at hostel backpacker prices. + large room, large bathroom, large bath towel (albeit well used with small...

Signature Residence is basic hotel about 10 min walk from the 'main road' along the cliff. When I was in Varkala, it rained a lot that I had to walk muddy floody road to get to the main road everyday. The room was OK but there was absolutely no concept of service/housekeeping. There's no one at the reception that we...

The hotel's location is excellent & my non a/c room was very clean & comfortable w/ a nice little balcony. It was a budget hotel so amenities (like hangers) were minimal. The staff was OK but there was never a person at the front desk. To find the manager, one had to search in the back.Wi-fi (lobby only) was hit-or-miss....

This place could have been charming but the service was so slow. You had to ask about everything. We had two different types of room here; non A/C cottage and then a more luxury A/C cottage. The non A/C cottage was so bad; dirty sheet, no lights working (dark in the bathroom etc), a fan that sounded like a motorcycle...

This was the cleanest hotel I stayed in during three weeks in India. The room and bathroom, even the hallways were literally spotless. The furniture is simple and in good condition. The balcony was very pleasant. The best thing about this hotel is the service. The management staff (Mr. Arun and Mr. Joyson) were so genuinely friendly and helpful. They...

I stayed at the Desadan up the street before here, and missed the other place. On the plus side, the grounds are lovely, the price is not bad (beach front are pricier), breakfest was decent, the AC worked, and the room is clean. On the downside, the wi-fi signal did not work 70% of the time, the tv's don't work,...

It was a long stay for me at Signature Residence in Varkala: 40 days! What convinced me was the cleanliness (you can have your sheets changed every other day) and the top quality kitchen, serving delicious keralan food. The breakfast was included in the price (27 Euros for a solo stay in one of the A/C cottages, in low season)....

“The garden is now (february 2013) a mess, with a digged hole, construction going on and machinery. Avoid a room that has a garden view. The alternative is a blind wall, but that;s better than a constructionsite.”
