Madurai Residency
Ranked #8 of 54 Hotels in Madurai
Reviewed December 24, 2011

We were in this holy temple city for a spiritual tour to Rameshwaram and Tiruchirapally and Madurai is the midway to both the divine destinations of Shiva and Mahavishnu respectively. Madurai Residency seemed the best option we could book through internet that time. Proximity with the Great Madurai Meenaxi Temple and the railway station makes it a sought for hotel. Rooms were less spacious and the bathrooms even more congested. But the best part was the roof top restaurant offering delicious veg-non veg cuisines. It is a budget hotel and one can expect a comparatively comfortable stay according to one's wallet.

We stayed three nights at this hotel. It is close to railway and bus station. Just opposite is s church with a very loud bell tower. Roof Top restaurant is fine. Rooms are clean and newly refurbished. Take the cheaper Deluxe instead of Super Classic as they are more quiet. Wifi only at Lobby, but ok.

Room Tip: Take cheaper room as they dont go to the main road

We visited Madurai in November 2011 and stayed at Madurai Residency because the location was very good. It's quite close to the Meenakshi temple. We were very tired when we reached so just wanted to sleep after dinner. As soon as we decided to sleep we realized the bed sheets were dirty and it felt like they hadn't been changed. We called the reception and room service to change the sheets and they took a good 45 minutes to come over. After the first call, the room service didn't answer any other calls and the phone just kept ringing. This experience was quite bad! Finally, they came over and changed the sheets. The room otherwise was ok though the amount of light was less. Not sure if the thing with the sheets was a slip up or the service is generally like that.

The food in the restaurant was fine and reasonably priced. Meenakshi temple was at walking distance which is good.

We had been to Madurai in August and stayed at Madurai Residency.
The room was good and spacious and we had a comfortable stay.
Food was good, but the place where they serve buffet is lilttle crowded and next to the wash basin .People leave the used plates next to the wash basin area itself.The arrangement can be improved.

I booked this hotel via internet, reply was prompt; I called to arrange an airport pickup and the driver was on time to pick me up. The hotel was very centrally located, close to the Station and bus terminus and just 15 min walk down Town Hall Road to the Madurai Meenakshi temple. When I checked in, I paid and the receptionist said something and gave me back just the invoice, no change!
There was a bar in the hotel which you had to enter via the car park, inside the light set up was very 'blue', and it didn't serve snacks; if you need to eat, you must go to the roof top restaurant but it was not always open. The room was very spacious, 2 single beds, facing the main street, but not nosiy, the AC is good, TV is good, toilet is clean and shower had good supply of warm water. Food on the roof top was fine, I preferred to go down to the street and eat in one of the local restaurants. I hired a car through the travel agent on the ground floor, very efficient and good value. All in all a very good value basic accommodation.

Room Tip: Try not to get rooms near the lift or stairs.
