We went this month to Tanjavur to visit in and around temples of Tanjai. We stayed in Oriental towers. I would say the room was mediocre for the exorbitant rate they charged us. It dint have enough space to accommodate an extra bed. There were cockroaches in the bathroom and the TV signals were very poor. The thermos and cups...

We were on a 2 week tour of southern India and while all other hotels were excellent, this was very poor. The staff were unfriendly and unhelpful, the room was barely adequate with a frosted glass window facing a wall, the bath tap ran constantly, the 2 lights in the bathroom were intermittent and wouldn’t work at the same time,...

The reviews ahead are right. This is a good accomadation for the THANJAVUR town but nevertheless, its extremely run down compared to our stay about 5 years ago. They seem to be cutting down on lighting costs in the lobby and rooms. Our room had just one tiny window and this combined with the dingy walls, reminded us of a...

Entrance with some garden in front and parking space for vehicle. Good size lobby. Reception was fine, checking in was quick though we have not booked earlier and one of the supervisor accompanied to the room when checking in. Rooms are fine and clean. Restaurant was ok size and food was fine. Service was ok. Didn’t really use other facilities...

There are not many alternatives for hotels in Thanjavur, but I found the Oriental Towers not so bad as reviews lead me to believe. Yes, it is not a honeymoon hotel, some floors are in need for renovation and the proximity to the train station does not make it a quite location. But my room was spacious, perfectly clean, with...

Rough Guide describes this hotel as "luxurious." I don't think so. Rooms are OK and moderately clean but decidely at odds with the grandeur of the lobby. The restaurant is simply laughable. No beverages except juice for lunch. Seriously, I had to leave the restaurant and buy my own water. It took literally 45 minutes to get a cup of...

We went on a tour of Kerala and Tamilnadu for 1 week. All of the places we stayed at this place was worse. Rooms were not well kept and dark. We had no hot water even we were probable the first one to be up in the morning. We had paid for breakfast when it was booked. In the morning...

Went to Thanjavur for sightseeing and was in fact too late with my bookings, so choice of hotels was limited that's how I got stuck in Oriental Towers. The place is a dump, very poorly maintained, fully worn down. Staff was not at all trying to make up for the hotel conditions and was equally unfriendly. My room was very...

We'd seen fairly good write ups but this place is decidedly past its sell by date.It was plagued with insects both flying and crawling, the rooms had seen better days, the staff were very off hand, the food was poor and the bar was a black hole. The only redeeming features were a well stocked supermarket in the basement and...

The Oriental Towers looks impressive from the outside but things deteriorate once you get inside. We stayed in a Standard Room and although it looked relatively clean, it was plagued by a bad smell. A very bad smell that would wake you up in the night and make you gag. Overall, the hotel is in desperate need of an upgrade....
