The location of this hotel is the only advantage I could find. It is very much near to Periyar bus stand and Railway station. You can stay in the city center with all amenities near by. But the rooms were very old and not maintained properly. This property badly needs a renovation. The window curtains, sheets and all furnitures were... More

This hotel has a very comfortable location very next to the main train station. Reaching Airport from here should not take more than 30 min by cab. Reasonably prices with fairly friendly staff. Rooms were decent and I would say good value for money!

The hotel is located very close to the Railway Station and Meenakshi Temple. Although a very old property, they have managed to maintain it to some extent. Basically a budget hotel ! We were informed that the renovation is taking place from the 6th floor - downward with 5th floor completed. A new elevator is being added. Service is quite... More

Except locational advantage (near to railway station and meeankshi temple), there is nothing to speak about this hotel. service very poor. furniture is very old. room facilities are almost nil. and price is very high.

Firstly the man who ran the front desk was so rude it was almost comic. The room we were given was filthy, cockroaches everywhere and no windows. The beds were pretty bad but slept fully clothed to stop bed bugs etc..I was very happy to leave the next day, sadly it put a really negative image on Madurai for me!

We booked a room based on good reports from one of the guide books. Our room was so filthy that when I leaned on a table my hand stuck. We didn't want to put our bags on the bed let alone lay on them. The bathroom was filthy & I stopped counting the cockroaches at 20. Needless to say we... More

It is not a western tourism hotel; it is a Indian hotel. The location was in walking distance to other hotels as well as the... More

Have booked this hotel at Madurai based on my friend's advise and arrived from Rameswaram as the second stop in our Pilgrimage. The hotel is located in one of the busiest streets in Madurai and hardly 1 KM from the railway station and the world-famous Perumal temple. The hotel is neat and spacious and its price is a boon for... More
