“Walkable distance from Natraja Temple”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2012

Akshaya Hotel is located at a walkable distance from Nataraja temple, the main attraction in the city and about a km from bus station. It is a basic hotel with 24 hour check out, hot water is available only in the mornings but you may not need it in hot weather. Breakfast spread is quite local and you can enjoy it.

Room Tip: the only difference between rooms is AC or Non-AC

Hotel Akshaya is budget hotel with a view of the temple towers of Natarja temple; best part of it is its location- almost next to the temple. Neat and clean for the value you pay. Rooms are large enough and AC is effective- but old window models. No separate restaurant for Strict vegetarians! Credit or debit cards are not accepted.Rooms with no view!

This is average business class hotel.chidambaram is a small town and this hotel is ok for it. The a/c room is a better room to stay. There is restraunt in the ground floor and also in the roof. Dinner on the the roof top restraunt will be a good view. The temple and the lighting will be the best view.

We worried very much that we can not find a hotel in chidambaram during a great holiday MahaShivratri. We reserved a room (Double bed AC Rs 1700+taxes = Rs 2000) through the Internet for three months in advance and have lodged without any problems. The room has appeared simply huge with all relying conveniences. And you will not find the best site to visit the main temple. We still had very pleasant impression.

We booked a room in this hotel on phone and were told it was confirmed and that we had to just show up on the day for the room. When we called on the day we were leaving for Chidambaram, the manager tells us that we should have called earlier and that they now have no rooms available. As we would have reached Chidambaram pretty late at night and we couldn't go looking for hotels that late at night, we tried to reason with the manager. He finally agreed to get us a room. But what a disaster! The only thing this hotel has going for it is that it is very close to the temple. The entrance in dingy. There is hardly any lighting at all. The whole place is covered in layers of dust as old as the city itself. The elevator, is so small, either your luggage can go or you can, never the two together! Finally the room we were given, apart from the lack of any type of cleanliness had a clogged sink. When we called the front desk to have it fixed, the guy came and just pulled out the tube that goes from the sink to the drain hole in the floor, so all the water just poured out into the room!!! Finally after 5 calls to the front desk, some one came to wipe the mess up and just left a bucket under the sink and told us the sink is now functional! As if this weren't enough, the bed linen was musty, dirty and had holes and stains on them. We knew there was A/C because it made a horrendous noise, not because it had any effect in cooling down the place. The place was infested with mosquitos so much so that two mats (one provided by the hotel and one by us) were completely ineffective. Finally, the restaurant! Just one thing to say: dont eat there. The plates are dirty, the silver ware not washed, infested with flies and no ventilation what so ever. All in all, we were happy to find a room in another hotel the next morning and move out!

We paid quite a lot (in Indian terms R2,000) for the deluxe suite with AC. It was a big room and big bathroom, but sheets were very very rough, towels old and worn, place was clean, and given there is not a lot of choice in town ideal for visiting the temple (which is well worth it). Ac was old and noisey, but it worked.
Staff were nice and manager friendly and helpful. But not sure I'd cope with more then 2 days

Room Tip: Avoid being near the lift

After my marriage, me and my husband planned to settle in chidambaram as he is a Dentist. So we went to chidamabaram and booked room in Hotel Akshya for searching a house. The hotel is in main area. We stayed there for around 2 days. The AC room rent was only 1100 but the room was very spacious and clean. It had a king sized bed, as we went after 20 days of our marriage we enjoyed the days a lot. Food was too good esp the south Indian Meals.. Chidambaram was famous for old temples we went out for the chidambara ragasiyam temple :-) it was very near the hotel.

Totally it was value for money.
