We arrived in Thanjavur at the train station, and a very short tuk tuk drive brought us to Gnanam Hotel. Located at a very busy crossroad, it seemed like it was at the centre of madness and chaos. Yet once inside the hotel parking area, and then quickly into the lobby, we were safe and sound and protected from the... More

Gnanam seems to be a old school, well established hotel. Spacious comfortable rooms, brilliant ( but a bit noisy) location, and decent service. The vegetarian restaurant and the staff were awesome. Breakfast was great. The Non vegetarian restaurant served good food but the seating is along with bar - so might not work for families travelling with small children. Over... More

The suite room we got was good, spacious and very clean. The staff are quick, well mannered and efficient. Room service is good as well. Location is superb, right in the heart... More

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

Located extremely close to the bus stand, the hotel has good parking and clean approach. Reception was efficient and check in was good. Room had awful cigarette smell, they changed the room immediately for us. Rooms are compact and bathrooms are clean. All amenities worked as desired. Room service was swift . Veg restaurant was well stocked, however quality of... 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. House keeping/room service staff - English knowledge very poor and hence any conversation... More

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
