“Best Hotel In Madurai”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2010

I have been to many hotels in Madurai and this is one among the best.. The hotel has all facilities.. No matter its a birthday part or a corporate meeting.. It is very much in the heart of the city and any place is nearby... Nice place to stay...

very impressed by high standard of this hotel amiss surrounding city.
comfortable rooms, no complaints from teenage kids, good housekeeping service
came to visit the meenakshi temple where i got my mangalsutra blessed and we were garlanded in shiva temple in what was our anniversary/ marriage renewal.
food and dessert very good and tasty.
left very early next day for rameshwarm drive so did not have time for proper breakfast but dinner was excellent.
the walls in dining area depicts the wedding of shiva and parvati. a truly inspiring time.

I really had a very pleasant stay from the evening of 9th August to the morning of 11th August in this hotel.The room (#402) was large and comfortable., with lot of moving space . My boss who had checked in a day earlier and stayed in a suit opposite my room was also full of praise for the space , ambience and comfort. Dinner in the loby level restaurant was good , but nothing much to brag about as far as taste was concerned . Many items including the soup were rather spicy for an average tongue.There was a pleasant surprise. The M.D of the hotel Mr. Santhanam , a very hospitable and respectable gentlemen , greeted us , introduced us to the chef from Manipal and spent sometime with us, taking personal care about our preferred dishes. Dining was a very interesting experience. There is a beautiful fresco inside the reaturant on a side wall. It is a white masterpiece , perhaps made of plaster of paris , depicting the marriage of Goddess Meenakshi , the presiding deity of the city.Many tourists were capturing it in their cameras and cell phones.
There is a Thai Spa in the restaurant. Although I did not use its services , I was told by an user that it was good albeit expensive at Rs.1200/- per session less 10% discount.
There is no jogging track in the campus , but the available open space is good enough for some morning walk. One also has the choice of a gym.
There were these few small things which made the hospitality less than perfect :
1.The lone lift is small and often makes you wait for few minutes before you can get into it
2.There was no shoe shine facility in the room : not even mit or cloth
3.One lamp in the room (just above the luggage rack) was not working
4.The house keeping staff had omitted to replace the empty water bottle while cleaning the room. When informed in the evening , water was supplied a good 10 minutes after the call , though with profuse apologies.
All in all , the hotel can be rated as very good

We went there for a visit with customer at Fortune Pandiyan Hotel. The service was very good and we liked the surroundings. We enjoyed there which was a very calm and silent place. The food quality was best with the enriching quality of ingredients.

Stayed for 2 days. Hotel has good food options. Rooms are large and quite decorated. Cleanliness inside the rooms may not be as per your expectations. Hotel has swimming pool and a good poolside bar. Most of the staff membesr can understand English. But my suggestion is to cross verify whether your instructions has been understood fully or not. Be specific to instrcut about LESS spice in food and emphasise the point.
