I'm writing this review from my room in the hotel. My stay is for 3 nights and I'll be checking out tomorrow. I had come to the city of Tiruchirapalli to attend an official training at income tax department. I checked in here as it is close to both my training unit as well as the railway station. And that's... More

I spent a couple of nights here. It was very cheap, extremely convenient and had a certain old fashioned style to it, that is rapidly disappearing in India. It was minutes from the central bus station, which made it very handy for finding in the evening, when I arrived from a long bus journey from Pondicherry. Transport to the airport... More

We never saw a hotel like this... It was so terrible dirty, nothing worked, there where cockroaches all around. Unbelieveble!! We pre-booked for two days, but left after the first night (getting money back). The room wasn't been cleaned, so we had dirty sheets, very old towels. It was bloody hot, noisy, awful. All the equipment was broken, incomplete, out... More

Having read the reviews I got exactly what I expected and indeed wanted. Cheap, scruffy however a building with character which would surely have been magnificent in its day and could be again with investment. In the meantime I found the location good, room large and plumbing and a/c etc positevly creaking however adequate. It really does depend what you... More

You can tell that this hotel had character and class in its heyday. Unlike most hotels in India, this is full of architectural details, solid wooden furniture, and a caring staff. However, the hotel is in dire need of upkeep. I believe that renovations are under way, but let's see how things turn out. It's certainly more quiet than other... More

I arrived in Trichy on a Saturday in March, and found that many hotels were "sold out" (because of "weddings", I was told). So I ended up at the Ashby. The place is a dump (in fairness, it might be because they are doing renovations). And what was worse, my non-AC room (on the ground floor) was infested with bedbugs.... More

We arrived in Tiruchirappalli and walked to the Ashby because it is close to the railway station. The room was very shabby and in disrepair. The mattress was so thin, it would have been more comfortable to have slept on the floor. We turned the ac on full blast then went down the the bar for 90 minutes. When we... More
