“A very welcome change!”
Reviewed April 25, 2012

Madurai was the 7th stop of our two-month South-Indian trip, so by now we are used to Indian standards and well adjusted for dissapointment...
But Saratha Rajans was such a welcome surprise! Well over our standard backpacker budget (we payed around 1800 Rs for a nice double room) we certainly never regreted the choice. Apart from the fact that it's a bit far from the centre, everything else was just perfect: excelent breakfast choices, good restaurant, complimentary AC ride to the railway station.
Room was clean and large, huge bed, large clean bathroom. Staff was excellent. Wifi works in the rooms and has good speed.
Me and my wife spent two very relaxing and enjoyable days here!

I found this hotel on cleartrip website, saw reviews here on tripadvisor and booked Double Bed AC Deluxe Rooms. Later, we found It was a fantastic choice! Rooms are cozy and service are satisfactory. Breakfast was buffet, complimentary and they prepare variety of dishes in Breakfast. They have in-house veg and non-veg restaurants and quality of foods are ok. The receptionists can arrange for sightseeing and they have their own cars. But hiring their car will be expensive and it will be better to look for other local travel agencies or even hiring a auto-rickshaw may be good decision if you plan to visit the Meenakshi temple and the Thirumalai palace.

We have stayed in many hotels all over Tamil Nadu - and this is the only one that seemed to be happy we stayed there. They were incredibly friendly and efficient. We had the queen bed room (second lowest level) - good price, free pick up and drop off from train station. The room was very clean and spacious. Also very rare in India - good and clean bathroom with hot shower. They also had good advice about costs for autorickshaws and other practical advice. Its not very far from meenakshi temple - its definitely worth it to stay at this hotel. If possible, ask for mathen - he's great.

Have been in three different cities and three different hotels in Tamil Nadu and this hotel was the best in this price range. Huge A/C room, flat TV screen, good bed, hot water - everything was excellent. Excellent food, good service. I want to recommend this hotel.

One point of criticism: WiFi did not work correctly and didn't give access to my computer. But staff helped me out and gave me LAN-access at the reception.

We stayed here for 3 whole nights whilst in Madurai. We arrived late from the train station and had no problems with the check. Very speedy. The restaurant and bar are open until 11pm so it was possible to get an order in before they closed. The reception we got on the desk and in the bar was so warm, and the a/c nice and chilled. The food is excellent value and very good quality, the South Indian Thali is amazing value, as are the other items on the menu. The desk staff and the room service staff are very polite, efficient and friendly. The beds are so big and very comforable, a/c is quiet, rooms are clean, sheet and towels are clean and changed on a daily basis. The complimentary breakfast is delicious. Tours and taxis are easily arranged at the desk with the lovely staff there. Generally this was a really relaxing stay in such a busy and exciting city. The only thing that I would say is that the building could do with some updating, but so minor in comparison to the service and the price.

Sharadha Rajan is a calm place to stay - away from the noises of the city but yet in the midst of the city. large rooms but maintenance is only average. nice staff who are very helpful and courteous. Tasty food.
