i had made a reservation for 18th oct on 15th of october.reservation desk did confirm the same.however when i turned up on 18th morning at 4.30 am ,those guys turned me off stating there is no reservation.

I had stayed in this hotel earlier too and did face many hassles like unclean toilet,bad sheets,unclean corridors etc..anyone could spent another 200 rs more and try to get a room at many hotels nearby like madurai residency,

The hotel is close to Meenakshi Temple , railway Station , Bus Stand.
The rooms are average , good for one night stay.
Close to business centre.
The hotel staff would cater to basic requirements.

Overall average

I stayed in the 2nd week of April, as it has close proximity to Bus Stand and Meenakshi temple, I chose this one. But what they are charging as rent is not at all worth for the property. First of all the hotel reception itself is in elevated position and have to climb at least ten steps which are in damaged condition. The lift makes a lot of noise while closing and opening. The windows, and frames in the room are full of dust and if any person who is suffering from asthma or alergy, prone to aggrevate. The remote for A/c is with the housekeeping staffs and everytime if we want to switch off / on the A/c we have to call them and request to do the same. Overall, I will never go to this hotel at all.

This hotel location is very good and have only walkable distance to the Meenakshi Temple. Hotel is good in view. There is a good lift service and hotel staff were very co-operative. We were a family group with 13 members and rented 4 non a/c rooms with extra bed for a night stay. The rooms and toilets were seen neat but found some small cockroaches (black beetle) in the floor of our rooms. The service of hotel restaurant is very poor. In the next morning we have lost our time for waiting the breakfast. We have ordered 'Idly' for breakfast. But after one hour they informed us Idly is not enough to serve us and got only 'dosha'. Anyhow the restaurant service is bad. We complained this to the person in the Manager seat.

Room Tip: This hotel location is very good. Only walkable distance to the temple. We were a family group rent...

I had to stay overnight at this hotel in Feb when I was stopping by Madurai. The main advantage of the hotel is that it is very close to the Meenakshi Amman Temple. The temple is just a few hundred meters away and one can easily walk to the place in the evenings (which i found to be a pleasant experience).

The rooms were very ordinary and the cleanliness was average at best. The hotel corridors were very badly lit that i actually felt a little creepy. I opted for an AC room, but the AC never was powerful enough. The AC room costs around INR 1600. I was reasonably happy with this until I was told by some of my friends that there are other alternatives that were also close to the temple which offered much better facilities and services only for a few hundred rupees more (which i would have been happy to shell out). Caveat: I did not visit said alternatives to compare facilities and so am not able to comment first hand.

I did not get a chance to have food at the restaurant, as i had so many options around the hotel, as it is pretty much at the center of the city.
