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 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

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

We had booked 4 rooms as we had a family function. On arrival they said due to unavoidable circumstance they have given one room to somebody else. For some rooms they gave all the amenities. Breakfast is complementary and it was told it will be a buffet. But there was nothing as such. Of course it was complimentary but there... More
