In one word i would describe the hotel as a big "Disapointment". Even though the room service was excellent the rooms of the hotel were way below the standards. Could not enter the bathroom as it was emitting bad odour. Even after bringing it to their notice no action was taken. There was residue of sand in the tap water....informed... More

Had gone to kumbakonam for a pooja. Found the property yo be very average and not worth the price. The cleanliness of the room could be improved a lot. It is quite close to the bus stand though and the rooms are also very spacious. But overall you have better options.

This is the most decent choice in town. Location is convenient. Hotel look and room is a bit rustic. Known as the biggest hotel in city. The room is spacious but very old fashioned and old furniture. There is a few affiliate hotels , so make sure you pick the right one.

This is the third time I am visiting Raya's Annexe and the experience continues to be a pleasure. Very spacious rooms & very spacious toilets. The luggage rack is the best I have ever seen and you can settle & engage your entire luggage very comfortably. The dressing area and the toilet have separate fans apart from the fan over... More

Stayed here this past January to visit the Navagraha temples. The hotel was very decent and the rooms were big. Booked a 2 bed-room for 4 adults and a kid. There is a nice restaurant which serves excellent food near by which seemed to be very famous but don't remember the name. You can book a car to visit the... More

Rayas Kumbakonam has 3 properties near the Mahamaham Tank. Rooms are clean. However getting it cleaned the next day called for calling the desk few times. The restaurant at this hotel has tasty south and North Indian items at unbelievable prices. They also have travel desk who arrange pilgrim tours around Kumbakonam.

Raya's has been our main place to stay whenever we visit Kumbakonam. The place is very conveniently located close by to most frequented temples in and around Kumbakonam. It is convenient and affordable. Haven't had food here though.

We had gone as a Family for a Pooja. Checked into the hotel late night. After promising a discount he refused it arrogantly when we landed at the property as he knew it was an odd time and travelling with ladies we wouldnt opt for another property. After entering the room the airconditioner was window mounted but they had promised... More

By far, the best hotel in South India in terms of the quality of the free wi-fi internet. The room is clean and comfortable enough. Very close to major attraction sites such as Mahamaham Tank and other temples.
