I stayed here from 2am on Sunday morning, until 10pm on Monday evening - they have genuine 24 hour charging period, so this only cost me for 2 nights, which was extremely helpful for me. Close to the station and to other 'Western' hotels, with bars and rooftop terraces.
I was a bit worried about potential cleanliness after reading some of the other reviews, but my room and bathroom were spotless, towels, toilet paper, bathroom products all provided. Staff were extremely helpful and the complimentary Indian breakfast was plentiful and delicious.

Room Tip: My room did smell a bit of smoke, and as I am a non-smoker I would have preferred it not to....ask f...

Hi, I have been a regular traveller to Madurai on both business and leisure. I was suggested this hotel by a friend when I came here first in 2009. Ever since I have prefered to stay here each and every time.

As a business traveller to thsi temple town, I dont expect the bells and whistles of a luxury business hotel, but what I do expect is a good, clean, efficient, easliy accessible place...and that' swhat I get at Rathna.

I would defintely recommend others to this place.

Room Tip: 3rd floor rooms are better that the rest

My wife and I stayed here when I needed surgery for cataract at Aravind Eye Hospital, Madurai. This hotel gave us a nice room and the breakfast was excellent. We love to come to this hotel, if we were to come back to Madurai!

I booked a (double accomodation) room a week before my stay and was told the tariff was Rs.1200 + tax and got that confirmed. When i landed there to stay, the guy in reception told me that the tariff for the room is Rs.1500 + tax. The reason he told was there are no rooms available for the lesser tariff. But i argued that i made the booking earlier and got it confirmed - but in vain... I had to stay there since no rooms available nearby and that was their advantage. I wanted to forget this incident to enjoy the trip but that didnt last when i entered the room! Was stinking all over and that is it. We made sure to spend most of our time roaming around in the city and to avoid the stinking room!

If you need a pleasant stay, there are few good hotels nearby to choose and definitely not this one please.

Avoid this hotel if you can. Rooms are stinking and bathrooms are untidy. Bedsheets and towels are not clean. Complimentary breakfast is not good at all. I would not recommend this hotel. I don't think this hotel is having any parking space. The hotel location is also not good at all. However I find several other hotels in the same line. It's close to railway station.

This hotel is located close to the Main Temple and that was the only good thing about this Hotel.
Rooms are not upto the mark with broken windows & cleanliness was below par. Aircon rooms are priced around USD35, which does not justify anything other than aircon.

There is a bar attached to this hotel and has a parking space of upto 10 cars.
