“old style!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

location was good, it was near to Meenakshi temple, but there is no view from hotel, it is very old style hotel, didn't like the hotel, yes it is a budget hotel, but I'll not recommend this to anyone.
rooms were dark, even in the day time, need to switch on the light, and even crockery served in the rooms were also not up to the mark, only I like the restaurant of the hotel.

Room Tip: I stayed in standard room, not recommendable

We stayed in this hotel twice for an overnight stay during 4 days. The rooms we got (non a/c) on both the occasions were having poor ventilation and soon turned uncomfortably warm and stuffy. The rooms though are quite spacious and hotel is just a strolling distance from the famous Meenakshi temple. Staff is friendly. One can not get warm water for bath except only in the morning. The room service telephone on our floor kept ringing almost all through the night and made it difficult to get good sleep. However, if one is on a short stay especially on pilgrimage to the Goddess Meenakshi's temple then this hotel would be a good choice despite the above mentioned drawbacks.

Room Tip: For comfort get an A/C room only.

We had a very pleasant stay in this hotel.
The room and toilet are spacious , clean and well maintained.
Walkable distance from Sri Meenakshi Temple.
The employees are very courteous.
We will recommend to any one.

The hotel is bang on Dhanappa mudali st in Madurai.It is very near Meenakshi temple and other shopping locations.It has an average restaurant downstairs.
We booked 2 deluxe A/C rooms.and one non A/C room for 8 persons.
The rooms are cozy,spacious and clean.It is noisy sometimes.Our adjacent room had a whole bunch of party people who made the stay unplesant with their cigarette smoking and drinking.we had to complain to the management.They vacated the next day.
The staff was extremely courteous and ever helpful.The road opp the hotel is very narrow.impossible for vehicles to cross one another.
would recommend it for the location alone ! nothing special.

Summary
The hotel itself is sub-standard, the food is OK, the restaurant itself is sub-standard again, unfortunately.

Location
The hotel is centrally located in Madurai with the main attraction in walking distance, auto rikshaws can be hired in front of the hotel.

Rooms
Thou shall always write positively!
The rooms are spotless: The walls are stain free and the floor is clean. The beds are OK and the a/c is effective. Do not open the curtains, because you will find pipes and electric wires in front of it as well as kind of prison grid and - of course - a cat. The beds were never made during our stay, although we complained. Towels and toilet paper were only supplied on request as well as the additional bed, which we had booked.

Old newspapers are covering the worn out wooden shelves in the cabinet and instead of reading lamps you will find the blank electric wires protruding out of the wall. The main light in the room is a neon lamp without cover, which makes it easy to spot scratches on your suite case but impossible to read without waking your wife.

No safety box, no keys for cabinet, no hangers for wardrobe, no moskito net, but fresh newspaper every morning. Hotel staff supportive and friendly.

Bathroom
No mosquito net on window in the bathroom, which makes it an ideal breeding place for our little disease-transmitters. Therefore we reduced our time in the bathroom; other highlights: Only cold shower, but tap stand constantly dripping, damp atmosphere, door rotten from algues and moist. We always kept the door closed and used the bathroom as a noise gate, because
a) every morning at 05:30am the hotel started pumping water into the water tank on the roof using a pressure pump; the noise was louder than the a/c. Only after massive complaint they turned it off
b) the open kitchen was under our bathroom submitting fine jingles of metal plates, laughter of the chefs and impressing smells of old and new food. This was whole day from 06:00am to 21:00pm

Food
No Western breakfast – perfect for us, fresh and tasty!

Booked through Make-My-Trip.

Are we returning? Never.

Stayed in March/April 2012, 2 rooms, 2 nights.
