Never ever try this... 1.False prmoises, sub standard morning buffet, no hot water even after repeated reminders, dirty curtains and toilet, very worst restaurant and mediocre rooms, Try to stay away from this hotel. At the same tariff you will get good hotels in Madurai.

I spent a day at the hotel and while had the return tickets and the option to stay at least till the evening, checked out at 10 am itself. Found the hotel below par, broken shower area in the room and poor quality of towels..soap and shampoo on request. .

Decent enough for a all guys stay. Hot water availability is dodgy (solar during the day I suspect) The breakfast buffet was sumptuous, kudos there. Apart from a slight mosquito problem (they provided a repellant minus the mat!), broken bathroom latch things were comfortable. Only flipside was not being allowed to fill water from their cooler, and neither was water... More

The location of the hotel is an advantage. Very close to Railway station just a KM away. Rooms are spacious. But don't expect a warm reception. I think this is a very old hotel and the staff are not trained to be very courteous. But if you are looking just a place to stay and don't expect good service then... More

The hotel is very close to the Madurai Railway station and the rooms were tidy but evethough the room was a double room the bed was barely enough for two persons. The room service was very poor and substandard. Morning complimentary breakfast was good and the time was upto 10:30 but when we went at 9:30 they said the vada... More

We a family of 4 stayed in this hotel on 24th November 2013. The rooms are stinking with phenol smell. Toilet was poor in cleanliness. Room service was not good. Reception was not informative. Nothing good except location.

This was an average place, Nothing much to boast about. It is a stop over hotel, where u could probably just spend one night . The only good part is that it is located very close to the station and main city. Its location is what is prime.

Recently during my visit to Madurai I happened to stay in Duke Hotel. It is terrible place with very poor quality of service. The rooms are pretty bad and badly maintained. Hygiene missing. Staff not very cordial. Over all better to avoid this place
