Raya's Hotel Annexe, Kumbakonam
19,Head Post Office Road Kumbakonam
I stayed at Hotel Rayas Annexe for nearly a week. The hotel itself is very modern with great finishings and has been very well maintained. There are 3 room types available - standard, studio and deluxe, mainly differing in size of living areas. I stayed in a studio room at R1800 + tax / night. The room was spacious with clean bedding, dining table for meals, modern A/C, fans in room, bathroom and dressing room; good hot water available 24 hours, separate dressing area and wardrobe for clothing, and flat screen tv. Rooms are very well maintained with no cockroaches or insects that you commonly find in other hotels. The hotel offers room service, prepared at restaurant in older Rayas hotel across the road. Checkout is 24 hours. In terms of location, the hotel is easy to find and well known by local residents. Next door there is a shop selling small groceries, toiletries and snacks.
I am basically a service women from Belgium. Since 25 years i am coming to india for helping poverty slum peoples. I built houses for poor peoples around kumbakonam and chennai area. Since 20 year visitng to kumbkaonam I am staying at Hotel Raya's for the past 2 years staying new Hotel Raya's Annexe-I very nice location, good management, real worth for the money. Nice food on order basis. I love Indian especially kumbakonam coffee provided by Hotel Raya's its very tasty....
We planned for in and around temple visits to kumbakonam and it was very good. With lots of homework it was easy to plan where we have to go and how to cover most of the temples as kumbakonam itself is called as city of temples. With the help of few website and local maps helped to see all the navagrah temples in a day with not much help. Most of the hotels in kumbakonam offers day trip to navagrahas, but they are quite expensive for a day. If you have come in ur vehicle you can go on your own if you leave early morning @ 5.30 and follow exactly the local maps available infront of all temples. Coming to Hotel Raya's Annexe is the best hotel in town and worth the money and service is really good. I tried booking online the same hotel 15 days before it always said its full. But when we went to check they gave us a good room. Worth to stay.
I had been to Kumbakonam with my family including my parents to visit temples around. We had a pleasant stay at Hotel Raya.Room we took(Std A/C) was simple and spacious for its cost and worth the money spent. Food was\'nt bad, ok. Travel experience was good. Hotel management took no time to arrange a cab for us to go around. the cab cost was also reasonable and the driver we had was very good. Overall experience was pleasant and memorable. My aged parents were comfortable and happy as well.
