The place was a bit run down, my A/C stopped working and couldn't be fixed till the next day, but the room was comfortable enough with the fan. The fan in my friend's room had a broken speed control so it was stuck on high speed. The furniture was aging and the light switches etc were sticky to touch. However... More

Breakfast - terrible Room amenities - very basic Toilets -> extremely basic No Wifi Totally run down place. Unfortunately this appears to be the best of the worst in this area I would suggest avoid staying in chidambaram. Stay in Kumbakonam and visit Chidambaram and get back to Kumbakonam in the night. Definitely not worth a cent

Though located near the famous Natarja temple, the upkeep and maintenance of the premises lacks care and maintenance. Shortage of manpower is the main reason. Even the complimentary water bottle will be given only on demand. We stayed for three days but despite repeated demands, the rooms were not cleaned. Anything you order as room service, will be delivered after... More

This is very poorly maintained hotel and restaurant. The service is very average. The bathroom cleanliness is terrible. AC works very well cools the room really fast. There are no good bed sheets. The restaurants are not pure veg. It is a mix and same kitchen

We opted for this hotel because of the lonely planet review. As promised it was fine, a bit old and worn and painted brown but ok. In the morning we realised we had HOT water for the price... We had breakfast across the road (opposite the east temple entrance) at a small thali place (behind green railings next to a... More

This is the only hotel which is centrally located and close by to the temple, and as we are staying only for a night we decided to go ahead. Very run down, and the bathroom is not up to the mark. Unwashed blankets. Quite disappointed.
