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

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

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.

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
