I will not suggest any one to stay here because they are hiding all things in photograph. what you are seeing is not there, there is something very different, also location of this place is very odd. you can't take your four wheeler there because there is a very small road. they didn't have electric geyser in their bathroom. they are using gas geyser and its not working.
Close to downtown and quiet
on Nov 12, 2017
Cheap and cheerful. (We paid 800 rupees a night)
Located just behind busy downtown but very quiet - so long the motorbike is not switched on at 7am.
Room only basis. No towels, no toiletries, no breakfast no service once you are given your room.
We had hot water the night we arrived and the day we left, but not the day in between. Don't know why.
Perfect for what we were looking for, but if you are after the homestay experience getting to know the locals then I wouldn't recommend this place. But, as we wanted just somewhere reasonably priced with such a great location for us it was great and we would return here if ever we come back to Munnar.
Comfort and affordable homestay near city centre
on May 24, 2017
Our room is the front one, next to the main house of the host family. We love the room as it is extremely clean and spacious. In front of our room, there is a nice sitting area which allows us to sit, read and enjoy the nice breeze of Munnar.
The host family is very friendly and helpful. The family also runs a fashion shop / tea shop which sells all kinds of cotton outfits with very cheap price and premium quality. All the prices are fixed, no hassle of bargaining or haggling !!!! They also gave us advice on tea leaf, the tea is also good quality with very good price.
Apart from the homestay, I also highly recommend Nirmala fashion shop and store, fixed price with premium quality !!!! Moreover, the owners were very down to earth, they didn't try to sell anything at all, they just mentioned about the fashion shop/tea shop during the conversation and we invited ourselves to the shop. No hassle at all!!!!
Only 2 things I would like to remind everyone: one, our bathroom is quite small and a little bit dark but it is very clean. Nirmala also has other rooms with bigger bathrooms, just we love the front room so much so we don't mind a smaller bath room
Another thing is that, the homestay locates on top of a very steep road, it only takes 3 minutes to get down and walk to the city centre, but it is quite tiring climbing up. Our fitness level is very high but we need to take 2 breaks before climbing up and reaching the homestay. Of course you can take Auto rickshaws up, but due to the language barrier, we've chosen to walk up most of the time
Anyway, I strongly recommend Nirmala Homestay and fashion/tea shop to everyone!!!!
Nice family homestay

It's located uphill so prepare yourself for a medium climb but once down you are at the city center. The rooms are spotless and private as they are outside the main house. Although small you'll have a bathroom and nice people around.
Clean and cosy
on Feb 4, 2017
Very clean and cosy room and spotless bathroom with heater facility. Centrally located, walking distance to town. WiFi available. Nice view from the terrace. Felt that it was slightly overpriced, but most of the services in Munnar are more expensive than in the lower lands.
