We have stayed a number of times at Kasi International, and every time, we have congatulated ourselves for our perfect choice of hotel.
The hotel is centrally located, and is extremely easy to find. It is very convenient for tourists. Our main interest, like most other visitors to the temple town of Kumbakonam, is to visit temples, and we found the hotel well geared for pilgrims like us. The staff are quite knowledgeable about the temples, and helped us find autos/taxis to get around from one temple to another. Especially helpful was the cab driver called by the hotel, who took us to a whole lot of temples, some of which even we were unaware of!!
The rooms are extremely comfortable, huge and airy with big beds which can easily accommodate 3 people! This, at the price of just about Rs.500/- per room (Non AC) and Rs.600 for AC, is extremely reasonable.
The food is another plus for the hotel. While the hotel does not have a restaurant attached, there is a good hotel in the next building which serves excellent veg food. However, the best option for food is the "Mami Mess" a mess run by a family, right opposite the hotel! They serve wholesome, home cooked food which will have you licking your lips and asking for more!!!
To top it all is the service, which is absolutely excellent!! The staff is helpful and ready to come to your aid at any given moment. I travelled there with my kid, and they even arranged for us to get meals from other hotels to suit his needs, right in our rooms. Further, on another trip, we were two ladies travelling alone, and the staff were just too helpful and took care to see that we were all right!
We are certainly thankful to have found this hotel, for we need search for another one no longer!!
