Where to stay in Tiruchirappalli

The main area to look for accommodations in Tiruchirappalli lies to the south of town. This district contains the majority of hotels in the city, as well as the main train and bus stations. Giving good access to such transport links, as well as some of the more popular restaurants in town, this district serves as a good option for those planning on staying just a short while, with the sights to the north all accessible by bus. If you're planning on staying for a little while, consider looking further to the north, where you'll find a number of guesthouses close to the temples and main bazaar.
