Hotel is centrally located. Rooms are spacious. Neat and clean. The staff are very attentive and very helpful. Very prompt and polite. Since the hotel does not have a resteraunt of its own, it takes a while to get even tea or coffee, bt if the staff is informed beforehand of your requirements, they promptly bring it on time. This...

Stayed here for two nights on 18th and 19th Nov 2015. The room was very neat and clean. One can take up this place just to stretch your leg. It is very closed to the Bus stand and railway station.There is nothing else one can make a positive comment since it has seen better days. On the days we visited... More

Decent stay option located close to Kumbakonam railway station. There is a restaurant just behind the hotel and one can get good breakfast option out here. It is a budget hotel perfect for family. Do not expect any free wifi!! Just a place to have a night's sleep.

The hotel management does not respond at all to your queries. I had asked for reservation from 20 Feb 2016 to 23 Feb 2016 but there has been no response from the hotel. Atleast they could have stated rooms are not available. I wouldn't advise any one to go to this hotel. All other hotels respond immediately with yes or... More

Centrally located on the Head Post Office Road, Raya’s is a decent budget hotel, popular both with families as well as business travellers. The rooms though small, were clean. The washrooms too were clean. Ample car parking space is provided for. The check-in and check-out was handled very efficiently. The staff is very knowledgeable about the city and it’s surroundings.... More

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.
