Nothing special at all by backpacker standards. Decent price. Excellent location - so close to the temple and near some cheap eateries. They offer tours and drop offs to Kodaikanal at reasonable prices.

As I stayed there for one night, it is budget hotel near to temple. My auto driver took me there and I had to spent only one night I was agreed to stay there. Stay was comfortable and if someone need luxury go to big hotels.

We stayed at this hotel for one night, because it was the first budget place we found after arriving late in Madurai. It is not worth what it charges, since the only good thing about it is the location near the temple, train station and bus station. Other than that, the bed sheets and the walls were dirty, the tiny... More

Very good location but that's it. Budget place for one night but it can be very noisy. Rooms are small and not that clean. Sleep here and go to the upmarket hotels a little further to enjoy great views of the temple at the rooftop restaurants.

We took this hotel juste for 1 night. This hotel does the job but just for 1 night: and that's it: Noisy and not very clean, very basic with no charm. Location is convenient, close to the temple. Our bathroom was destroyed.

Stayed here due to Lonely Planet recommendation. Staff were fine, conditions were ok, but I didn't even get an hour's sleep! I packed up and moved hotels at 4am. The is a metal grate above each room's door exposing the room to all the noise from the hall including staff yelling from one end to the other at 1 and... More

Despite it was recommended as a budget option in my travel book, we had to bargain a lot for the price. Definitely not worth what they ask for! Sheets were extremely dirty (not sure if they even changed them), we had to ask for another set. Bathroom had a weird strong smell, had to keep the door closed at all... More

We stayed for 2days at this place and were really nice welcomed. The rooms were clean and large and for the money definitivly fine (only the elevator sucked cause it doesn't move when 1 of the 2 doors stays a little open and it happens often). After check-in we get asked if we want coffee/tea/laundry/brandy and got some coffee for... More
