This was the last room in the city for under Rs1000 when we arrived during the Attukal Pongala Festival, the largest annual gathering of women in the world. The coconut mattresses were sunken and the room bare, but after a day of heat, smoke and festivity, we sank into them happily.
Cost: Rs500 for a double room with fan and bathroom, when it’s busy.
Finding it: Beside a tall building advertising a nightclub and rooftop bar on MG road. (See map below.)
