The property is a bit tired and could do with a good makeover. The management clearly believe that - in relative terms - they have the best offer in Tirupur and thus need not try too hard. However, foreign guests should be aware that they are being ripped off, paying 50% more than Indian guests for the same room. I guess Indians being treated like this overseas would not keep quiet. My advice is to stay in Coimbatore, where there is at least one proper 4-star property with modern amenities.
A good, well run hotel

My husband and I travelled with another couple to Tirupur and chose to stay at Velan. This was an easy choice for us as my husband had lived and worked in Tirupur for two years in 2003/4. We knew the hotels and felt comfortable choosing Velan as we had been there many times for dinner and to the bar. It did not disappoint. Our room was spacious and the beds comfortable. There was a flat screen television with cable and clean bathroom. The hotels in Tirupur are always busy with western guests as this town manufactures t-shirts and is known as the Manchester of India. Buyers come from all over the world. They are not spoilt for choice with hotels but there are three good hotels in the town and I would return again to Velan. Breakfast was served by the large, sparkling pool and it tasted good with plenty of choice. The dining room is very nice and caters to Indian and western taste. The staff were all extremely friendly and helpful. The airconditioning was effective and the laundry service was fast and efficient. We stayed for four nights and had no complaints.

Top Local Tips for Tirupur

Evenings in tirupur If you’re a business traveler travel like us, you will find that there is not much to do, once your work for the day is over. No restaurants, Pubs or Coffee Shops or Culture shows. Only dingy bars where you can down a sombre peg or two. The two good hotels (Velan Greenfield and Hotel Angel) have a bar each, with the former slightly (but only) better due to its cozy wood paneling. The bar at Angel is fashioned much like an igloo, but the service here is slightly better. Remember, most watering holes around these parts are slightly patronized by males, and the presence of a female may cause unnecessary flutter amongst the moribund drinkers. Also, the reason why most bars in the South are so poorly lit is because ‘drinking’ is still looked at as a social evil, hence it helps to stay shadowy and anonymous. Smoking in a bar is considered to be infinitely macho. And any man who orders an imported scotch whiskey and a packet of smokes (‘555’) is considered to be the epitome of cool. Apart from this, the town is filthy, chaotic and dismal, barring the locals who are generally warm and friendly. If you have extra time, you could try out a Tamil movie in a local theatre, just for kicks. It’s full of characters, and you’ll laugh with the crowd even if you do not understand a word.
