“Just fair”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

Cleanliness is really not up to standard, as there were grease spots just about everywhere in the bathroom and on the tea table. The balcony can't really be used for there are no seats outside and a noisy AC.
No sound proofing makes for perfect listening to one's neighbors' showering or conversation...
Other than that, the buffet breakfast is fair and the location quite good. The restaurant is quite expensive, explore the vicinity, there are excellent alternative and genuine options very nearby !

Very expensive for the room quality they provide. some lamps were not working when i checked in on a business visit. the phone was also not working.I had to call the room service to get it rectified.
bathroom is just ok. The quality of food in the restaurant is good but very expensive. Also it took them a very long time to get it delivered on the table. Front office staff is ok

A very expensive hotel for the quality they provide

This place was an absolute stunner. Me and my wife drove down from bangalore to thanjavur and decided to stay in this place based on some good reviews on internet but never expected it to be too good. For the tariff of 2500 inclusive of tax it can't get better and absolute VFM. The rooms are very neatly maintained with clean washrooms and beautifully working AC (definitely required in thanjavur if you are traveling this time of the year). Breakfast was good and served complimentary too. The place has ample car parking facilities, friendly staffs and located amidst local thanjavur market and very close to the main bus stand. The hotel houses pure vegetarian and separate non-veg restaurant. We never tried lunch and dinner here since we never got an opportunity. Hence can't comment much on the quality of food. The only negative is the television channels which were not very clear for viewing. But then who will watch TV there if you are visiting as a tourist? there are so many places and temples to visit in thanjavur and around (kumbakonam). Overall this is a must stay place for people visiting thanjavur and I would certainly recommend this place. 5 stars from me.

Our Family Deity's temple is in Thanjavur. We go there at least twice a year, and always we have stayed in Hotel Gnanam, which is not only close to our temple, but also very nice in every aspect. The Front Desk people are always courteous. The rooms are spacious, cleanly maintained , and the bathroom has always been spic and span.
Their breakfast comes complimentary, it has always been very good. There is a vegetarian restaurant, and this breakfast buffet is served here. Their hotel is so aesthetically done, they have beautiful Tanjore paintings everywhere.
They have tourist taxi service too, have a good set of cars and drivers.
Their room service is also quite good, but sometimes they take a long time to bring a cup of coffee or tea, and when we are in a hurry to leave, this factor is quite frustrating! They must certainly improve their room service.

We stopped at Hotel Gnaanam as recommended by a colleague of mine. But being Diwali eve we had a tough time reaching the hotel. All the roads leading to it were blocked as it was on Market Road. So next day we had to leave before the shopaholics arrived.
We had to change rooms as the first one allotted to us stank of pesticide. The veg breakfast was good. Rooms are okay - old ac, small bathrooms.
