“Nice place, near the temple”
Reviewed March 23, 2013

Big hotel, with wifi, free connection from ground floor. You need to ask to change the towels. Aircon is very high and you cannot regulate. Near the temple. There are no guest houses...in Madurai. Good room service.

Hotel is centrally located near train station and not too far away from Sri Meenakshi Temple. Breakfast is all-right. Don't remember if there was WiFi. I arrived early at 4 AM and slept in lobby easy chair but they got me a room already at 7.30. The hotel is not very expensive by its standards.

We stayed at the Madurai Residency following the advice of a friend who had told us it was okay for 1 night. We did not understand the restriction '1 night' as it was a really good place - at least the room where we stayed - I forget the floor but it was rather high and you can see the temple from some of the top floors (just ask for a room with temple view!).
The room was really good, the restaurant on the roof-top is good and all in all, it is a very good place to stay if all you want to do in Madurai is visit the temple - it is only a few minutes' walk from the hotel - and it is also close to the railway station. It is a 24 hours check-in check-out hotel, so if you arrive in the afternoon, like we did, you only have to leave in the afternoon if you checked in at that time and you can enjoy their wonderful lunch-buffet at 250 rupies until 3 p.m. Maybe not the place you want to spend your holiday, but definitely a good place to stay at if all you want to do in Madurai is see the temple.

Room Tip: Top floor rooms are with temple view, but you better ask explicitely as the backside won't have...

I can see there are mixed reviews here.... We stayed one night as a base to see the temple and we found the hotel, service and room fine and definitely value for money. There was an Intrepid group passing through and they usually select reasonable hotels that provide good service? Free wifi too in the foyer - always a good thing!

The rooftop restaurant was a good experience (for us) and we enjoyed our dinner there. The travel guy was helpful. The breakfast was fine too...... YMMV

Within walking distance to the Meenakshi Temple, this is a reasonably priced city business hotel. Strangely, hot water is only available 5-9am, the buffet breakfast is uninspiring, but the room was ok and bed comfy. The view from the roof top restaurant is very limited and the food only ok, so maybe better to spend the evening elsewhere.

I have stayed with my family for one night while travelling to Madurai, Its good hotel in terms of room space, Food also good and most of the recipe is continental and north India, hence a place like madurai it is good for foreigner and north Indian People. But service is not upto the mark. Hence if you compare with price you may have other options. The most beutiful thing in this hotel is the roof top restaurant and in the evening its really entertaining. But most worst thing is if you are not giving order for dinner they will not serve you snacks or beer. Overall stay is average..
