We spend 3 nights at this well located hotel in Tanjore. The hotel is quiet and squeaky clean. Spacious bedroom, safety box at the reception. The staff is very friendly, professional and helpful. Good selection of food for the buffet complementary breakfast . Very good value.

First, the good points about this hotel: Very nice reception, friendly staff, clean halls, good rooms, very good restaurant. Now for the bad ones:Stayed here for a night. Checked in at 8:30 pm. It was a long day and so we wanted to take a shower. Surprise! no hot water! Tried different things and then called the front desk. One... More

We stayed in Thanjavur for 1 night so that we could see the fantastic temple and the royal palace. The Gnanam Hotel has a woman working at reception, good to see, is very centrally located for both temple and palace, a 50 rupee tricycle ride to each. And I am sure within walking distance as well. Our room 205 was... More

The Gnanam is right smack in the center of Thanjavur, and is a standard hotel. Perfectly comfortable, perfectly adequate; nothing outstanding. Breakfast is very good except for the coffee. Wi-fi is slow but works. If you have a room on the street side which our friend did it's noisy; ours was quiet. Staff was polite; but our advice of where... More

We stayed for a night at the hotel early February 2015. The rooms are clean and the rooms are spacious. The staff is excellent and break fast was decent. The only grouse I have is about Coffee - the taste appalling !. In Tamil Nadu where good coffee can be enjoyed with any small hotel or street vendor there should... More

Centrally located, with the railway station, bus stand and main temple within walking distances. Friendly staff, excellent buffet spread for breakfast. Overall, the hotel was one of the decisive factors in making the trip a memorable one!

We stayed at Gnanam for 2 days in both ordinary and deluxe rooms. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the room and the furnishings in both categories. The hotel as a whole was neat, clean and well maintained. Room service was a bit spotty, with most of the items on the menu being unavailable. The food at the... More
