The room we had was dilapidated, dirty, the corridors claustrophobic. The bedhead was broken, walls smeared with something that might have been blood. We've been travelling around India for a couple of weeks now, North and South, and by now this was the worst guest house/room. We were too tired after coming from the airport at 11 pm to check...

Rooms were dirty. The staff runs kind of a own beer-service business. Thats all they do. At the reception they organised a Taxi for us and this was untill now the only place were we got ripped of since our long time travelling in India. If you want a cheap rathole - go for it!

We got here thanks to the guide book, what the other reviews say is true. We had a big room with a nice view from our balcony on the street the hotel is located on. The bathroom is spacious though needs a maintenance job (sometimes the shower wouldn't stop). All the locks have seen better times and one of the... More

We booked into the "deluxe" suite on the roof deck and there was absolutely nothing deluxe about it! On a more positive note, the room looks onto a balcony overlooking the temple, which is stunning at night. Anyone can visit the roof deck and stand right outside our room window, however, luckily the window is made from one-way glass, so... More

The hotel has a really good location, however the staff really made a mess. The people that work here are not so friendly and far from smart. I asked for a towel and a blanket, it was both not possible because I was staying in a non ac room! Also there are no western style toilets and the shower was... More

Maybe we expected more from Madurai and were a little let down, but our 1-night stay in this hotel was not enjoyable. First of all, we got a room on the sixth floor, the elevator seldom works and when it does, you have to put up with the constant begging for tips of the operator. The room was filthy. I... More

After my first night in the Hotel West Tower in a windowless humid ac-room for 1100 rupies (the ac was not working again after the first power cut) I found the Sree Devi through a friendly tailor. The price was 450 rupies per night. The hotel is in a street with many furniture shops with beautiful tamil neon lights at... More

We chose via the RG like everyone else, was on a train arriving at 11pm so couldn't easily shop around...(6hr 40 from Trivendrum) Pre booked a 480 rupee double, which was cheap, when we turned up there they showed us to a room with a squat toilet that wouldn't look out of place in a Thai prison (going by the...

I dont know what Sree Devi the rough guide reviewed saying rooms are "spotless." The room was one of the filthiest I have been in in India. The reception at check in tried to charge me 2,000 rupees for four nights at a rate of 430 rupees a night. When I inquired about 430 x 4 not equally 2,000 he... More

Stayed here on the recommendation of the Rough Guide that said that rooms were 'spotless' and 'excellent-value'. They were not. This hotel was extremely dirty with a revolting bathroom, lumpy bed, dusty floors and a manky balcony facing out on to a fairly busy loud street. While the reception staff were friendly, the army of porters and 'cleaners', spent the... More
