A good hotel centrally located in madurai just opp the raja muthia hall. The rooms are cozy. But the service was very poor. A coffee order took nearly 2 hours after 2 reminders. The breakfast in the top floor was south indian and good taste.

This is not a 3 star hotel... It is very run down... Unhygienic... Bathrooms are smelly... Our rooms were not serviced during our two night stay at the hotel. AC has a humidity problem. Only good part was breakfast... It was good and consistent... Will never go back again...
