“Good Hotel”
Reviewed August 6, 2013

This hotel was a good value for money. It is little away from the railway station and main temple but that's why the surroundings are not as messy as in the town.

The breakfast was good and tasty. The rooms were clean and nicely done.

The manager was kind enough and promptly arranged for a vehicle for our 2 days trip to Rameshwaram with a very cheap deal.

Good place to stay with value for money. Everything was good but couldn't find the minibar as described during booking. Good food, clean toilets, rooms and surroundings, good breakfast. Highly recommended.

Its a very nice hotel. Rooms, staff and food is very nice.
Location is a bit far away from Railway station but that fine.
I checked out early morning and they still gave me packed breakfast which was included in the package.
Overall very good.

Stayed here for a couple of nights in June'13. I booked through a travel website at the last minute and got a a very good discount.

The Premium room was way beyond my expectation - very clean, good interiors, decor, mini-fridge (but no tea/coffee maker), wardrobe, safe, big flat TV, writing desk, chair, sofa, centre table, double curtains, good light fittings, efficient a/c. Bed and linen were clean, sleep quality after a long day's sighseeing was peaceful.

Bathroom was very clean and hygienic with complimentary toiletries and kits. The fittings and fixtures were of very good quality both in the room and bathroom.

Complimentary b/f was the best we ever had in quite a while - huge variety and quite tasty too. Couldn't have enough of it :)

They have 24 hour checkin/checkout policy which was helpful. Front-office staff was quite polite and helpful and checkin/checkout was smooth.

Housekeeping service was quite efficient and prompt. They would come within a few minutes of calling.

They have an open roof-top restaurant where we had dinner - quite an experience that.

For the discounted price we paid, all this was just fantastic VFM!

The hotel is not within walking distance from the temple so you need to hire a auto for that. Autos are available aplenty outside the hotel.

The only pain point was that the housekeeping staff kept banging the door of the store room on our floor very frequently. Quite a racket! Someone needs to tell them to close the door softly without disturbing the guests.

Would definitely stay here again on my next visit to Madurai.

Room Tip: Rooms on the higher floors are preferable to get a good view and minimise the road noise.

I stayed here as part of a tour of Southern India. The staff were the best I've met and went that extra mile for us - particularly Vijay.
Comfortable beds, great rooftop restaurant, and great breakfasts! Just don't ask to watch anything other than the cricket!

Room Tip: Try and get a room on the upper floors.

Hotel was acceptably clean, well located and the staff was very helpful. The room I had was quiet an due wifi was decent. I would stay here again without issue. This hotel would represent your average Indian mid-range hotel in this area.

Stayed here for a night back in Nov last year. Rooms are very decent with clean bathrooms. The staff was very courteous as well. Food was pretty good except for the complimentary which was just about average. Autos are available easily outside the hotel which are a recommended mode of transport to visit the temple. Overall it was a comfortable stay.
