I stayed here for 1 night and it was great! The building is so unique and huge (ex-palace for a king), I spent a good half an hour exploring and it has a good view from the rooftop terrace. There is a social area with TV but to be honest you can chill anywhere. Raja (a member of staff) was...

The staff is very helpful and there is a man who will grand get chai and coffee in the morning for you. He is very sweet and a character. Broadland is a great place for a long or short stay. There is no AC but they will offer fans and make sure you are comfortable. While I was here, there...

Lovely place, I would recommend splashing out on the rooftop cottage. After arriving at the airport and braving the hustle and bustle this place is an oasis of calm to sit and plan your next move! Owners are really helpful and friendly, whole building is gorgeous fading grandeur. Wifi only downstairs, but views from the roof fantastic.

I spent three nights at Broadlands as a solo female traveler in the beginning of March 2016 and I loved this place. It isn’t luxurious by any means, but the old Muslim palace has tons of ambience, there’s a nice set of independent travelers and writers working in the rooms long-term and hanging out with their doors open, and the...

We read about this place in Lonely Planet and after seeing appalling reviews for most other places on Trip Advisor we decided to give it a go. We emailed ahead to check the rates and requested a double with bathroom for Rs450. When we arrived we were told that the Rs450 room was not available so we were given a...

It is a wonderful set of old houses looking like a maze. It reminded me of the movie Exotic Marigold Hotel. Unfortunately, the attention is not like in the movie. The gentlemen who attend do so without any pleasure, with much selflessness and impolitely. Bathrooms are shared and are not in good condition. If you wish, you can stay for...

Absolutely gorgeous old Muslim palace, hidden in the old neighbourhood of Triplicane, right next to the cricket stadium! You can´t tell the charm from outside, but as you're guided by the kind staff to your room through the patios the building around you becomes a fairytale palace (even if a little falling apart). Broadlands is a beautiful washed blue-white Indian...

This hotel was one of the most memorable stays of my life. It has such a nice atmosphere and very low prices. The equipment is nice. It is quite close to the beach. I was there in 2012 and want to return very soon.
