It is a small, conveniently located hotel away from the hustle bustle of the temple area. The Meenakshi Temple is around a 15-20 minute drive fro the hotel depending on the time of the day. They have a restaurant. There are many other restaurants too around the hotel offering different cuisines

This might be the worse hotel I have visited. They don't have a clear check out policy like normal hotels and have a 24 HR absurd rule. I.e. I was told to check out in 10 mins before leaving for a meeting or would have to pay more for a few hours which would have been 12.00 like any other... More

A small but conveniently located hotel away from the crowded temple area. Temple is at a distance of about 4 km but it takes about 20 min. Autos are available at Rs.100 one way. They do not go by the fare metre. The restaurant serves decent food. Just outside the hotel there are many good South Indian restaurants like Saravana... More

The hotel location is convenient within 20 minutes max to reach from Rly station, still not in mid of old crowded city area. Service was at accepted level for any mid range hotels. The food quality of its restaurant was also good. Stayed there for 1 overnight as halt for onward journey to Rameshwaram

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.
