I had been to Tanjore for sight seeing with my family. The Hotel is centrally located, quite close to the Big Temple. Although its is midist of city, the traffic is not as bad as any major metro / non metro cities. They have ample parking space. The complimentary breakfast is okay, not very good. The hotel staff is courteous,... More

This hotel is the nicest I've stayed at in India. It had hot running water, powerful AC and fan, free wifi, a very clean bed and nice furniture, and even a minibar and complimentary shampoos and soaps. It's in a good location and has a breakfast buffet too. It is pretty expensive by Indian standards.

Highly recommended. Reasonably well maintained hotel, clean bathroom. Restaurant - very good. Complimentary breakfast - good! Front office staff pleasant and helpful Rooms away from the main road may be less noisy. To be avoided: ROOM SERVICE! Despite repeated calls and complaints dinner reached past 10 pm.

This hotel is located bang in the center of the city right next to the bus station, and the major tourist attractions (i.e. the Brihadeeshwara Temple and the palace complex) are within a 10-minute drive; getting around (or in and out of) town is therefore really easy. A number of other pluses: the wi-fi works, the front desk staff is... More

Set in the heart of Tanjore, this medium sized hotel provides an excellent base for visiting the many nearby temples. The rooms are clean and comfortable but make sure you choose one away from the main road in front of the hotel to avoid noise. I did just that and with an efficient air conditioner found I was able to... More
