Sona's even though is a 10 minutes drive away from Railway station and Central bus stand has good rooms with excellent air conditioning and clean bathroom that many more popular hotels in Trichy lack. Sona's give a discount for regular visitors.

Stayed wif family n kids, rooms were clean n cosy... Customer service was bad..Checked in late at night... Reception staff at night was good... Checked us in without much hassle... Paid him a deposit n forgot to take the receipt n this proved as the prob the next day...during checkout was asked to pay full amount... Had to literally argue with the guy on Morning duty to check with night duty colleague... N was confirmed that the amount paid...Only that the night duty didn't indicate it down....another one was the complimentary breakfast ended really early n kitchen was often empty...

Stayed for two nights here in one of the cleanest rooms I've seen in india.

Most beds in India are very hard - at this hotel the mattress was some sort of memory foam - not great on the back but a welcome change.

Food was decent. Included breakfast good for Tamil Nadu - ok compared to other states.

The one thing that bothered me is that I had confirmed standard A/C
room for 1650. Upon arrival we were informed they were not available and shuffled into a deluxe
room for 1750 (and face 5% tax increase due to that). This seems to be a common ploy in hotels in Tamil Nadu and reeks of unprofessionalism. First and only place in three months of traveling in India that pulled this stunt. Not impressed. We complained but didn't get anywhere with it - and the $5 price difference overall wasn't a big deal - but it's the principle that matters.

Location was ok. Around 2 km from rock fort - we walked but it's a quick a cheap tuk tuk ride also.

Could probably find something with better value for

I am regularly travelling to Trichy which is one of the very important temple city in Tamilnadu with ancient temple at Srirangam and others.
Having tried almost all hotels and lastly settled at Hotel Sona which is being more than average with respect to ambiance, house keeping, service and more importantly tariff. Rooms are well maintained. More importantly, its situated in heart of the city with key businesses and restaurants around.

This is a small hotel catering largely (as far as I could tell from a brief stay) for Indian business people. They looked vaguely surprised to see a pair of middle aged British backpackers (but then perhaps we do look a little odd). Having said that the staff could not have been more helpful or friendly. The waiter in the restaurant was charming and very professional. The room was large, very clean and the hot water was reliable. For a tourist the hotel is well positioned quite near (5 minutes walk from) the rock fort temple and on the same side of town as the Sri Ranganathaswami temple. It's a fair distance from the bus stand and station but there are plenty of auto rickshaws on hand. The only downside of the hotel as far as we were concerned was the food in the restaurant which was not good. I'd go so far as to say it was the worst food we had in a month in India but it's all a matter of taste and you don't have to eat there as there are plenty of other places. I'd still recommend the hotel.
