Clean and nice hotel in Madurai. Location is very central and close to the railway station.
For us breakfast was included in the base rates - breakfast is clean and good mix of Indian and Continental.
Wish it had running hot water all 24 hours (has running hot water till about 1030AM).

Stayed just for 2 days and 1 night. Advantages- check out time is 24 hrs (if catching a late evening train one doesn't have to worry about finding a place for changing into travel gear) . Very close to Meenakshi temple, shopping areas and railway station (you save on local transportation). Breakfast was good with fair variety though the sitting area in the restaurant is bit cramped.

One gets a good view of the city from the terrace restaurant.

Staff was friendly and courteous. All in all a good place for a short stay.

Madurai Residency is located in the heart of Madurai, just a stone's throw away from the famous Meenakshi temple. It is also walkable distance from Madurai railway station and local bus stand. The view from rooftop is lovely. Hotel offers good variety in breakfast although room service is a bit slow. Also avoid their laundry as they will overbill you and exchange your clothes. tried twice and met with same fate. Their travel desk guys are really helpful and arrange taxis at reasonable price. As many tourists want to go to rameshwaram and kodaikanal, this hotel can be your base camp. Rooms are recently renovated and are offer good accommodation. You get internet free of cost in their business centre. will recommend this hotel to others.

I stayed at the hotel during an official visit and liked its reviews it TA. The tariff is too high for the kind if service they provide. Location ,roof restaurant is good. Food is ok but don't expect the service to be good. The reception people really made our exit horrible. Didnot help us out with our problems . totally unprofessional behaviour.

This hotel really stood out on our travels through India. The beautiful lobby gives it a grand feel and the hotel is very spacious overall, so no need to squeeze on the lift or get squashed on the staircase. The staff at reception were helpful and efficient and we were shown to our room where the porter made sure we knew how to work all the appliances in the room and that we were comfortable. The rooms are equipped with everything you could need and have fresh white sheets. Another bonus point is that this hotel has the highest rooftop restaurant opening at 7 pm, with lovely views over the city and the Temple. The hotel was a little more pricey than our guide indicated but after staying in a range of very average hotels, it was well worth it (cheapest double was Rs 2300). Overall lovely relaxing stay, and very central so perfect for exploring the town!
