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

I actually wasn't expecting much except for a cheap room, so I sort of knew what I was getting in to. Unfortunately, Madurai doesn't have a lot of clean options in the way of budget hotels. If you can splurge a bit in this city I think you'll be better off, but if you need to stay on budget, this... More

Checked in only cos we were really tired and had no patience to search for other places. Location of this property is pretty good, no complains in that regard. Dirty bedspreads, tiny rooms, not maintained well, bathroom functional for emergencies. The rent is very very high for the quality of room. Went about hunting bedbugs within 15 mins of checking...

Room price is above average with respect to below average service and cleanliness. The worst... More

To put it short: There are a couple of hotels to avoid in India and the West Tower Madurai is definitely the leader of the pack. Being rated by LP as between budget and mid-range, I wonder wether the LP guys were completely drunk when they visited. While the staff were ok (but not more), the rooms were not. Entering... More

It's right next to the temple, but on a VERY noisy side street. Rooms are fair. My fan didn't work, but the staff fixed it. Staff was nice enough, but not super friendly like in other guesthouses in India. There are a bunch of other guesthouses in the area that are probably worth checking out first.
