We arrived in Tiruchirappalli and walked to the Ashby because it is close to the railway station. The room was very shabby and in disrepair. The mattress was so thin, it would have been more comfortable to have slept on the floor. We turned the ac on full blast then went down the the bar for 90 minutes. When we returned the ac unit had decided to pump out hot air and the room must have been at least 45c.
We changed rooms but the ac unit in the new room was so old that it took 6 hours for it to cool the room down.
To top it off we could not even get breakfast in the morning because there was no cook available until 10am.
