Mine was a very short visit...checked in at 10 pm, checked out the next morning. Check in was quick..room was spacious. Although I paid for an extra bed, the quality of the bed and the linen for the same could have been better. Need more power points as people these days travel with multiple gadgets. Breakfast next morning was ok.... More

I stayed here for two nights and found the rooms clean. Staff turned up the sheets and all that when we were gone without being told, which cannot be taken for granted in India! It is conveniently located if you intend to visit the Meenakshi Temple. Dinner was not bad but the breakfast buffet leaves much to be desired. I... More

Date of Stay 04/02/2015 & 07/02/2015 We stayed here for 2 days in Room Nos. 302 and 408. The Hotel looks good from outside but the rooms need maintenance badly. The reading lamp shades kept falling off. Taps in the toilets were leaking. The towels have outlived their life and were yellow. And finally the Room had a few blood... More

Just two kilometers from the temple, this hotel has clean rooms equipped with complementary Wifi connection and all other feature that is expected for the price. The restaurants serve good food, but I guess there are many good quality restaurants around the hotel which are quite competent in value for money. The hotel staff is knowledgeable about the tourist information,... More

The Hotel Northgate is just across the river from Meenakshi temple, a 70-100 Rs tuk tuk ride (the tuk tuk stand is out the gate and to the right about 100 yards). It's got a spacious, comfortable, clean feel to it. The gate is manned by multiple officers, the front door is always opened for you by a young man,... More

Comfortable hotel, with western facilities like towels and hot water. Excellent Restaurant and WiFi are notable also. On the other hand: The hotel is situated in a faraway part, secluded from other hotels and the train station but still very close to Meenakshi Amman, only 10 minutes by Auto-Riksha. The roof gives you a perspective to Meenakshi Amman, but they... More
