We stayed at this place after looking at a few other hotels in the tourist area. It is across the road from the Hotel Chentoor. Be warned if you use google maps to look up the address of this place it will come up in the wrong place, it shows it as east masi st, not west masi st. That's why we didn't see it till we stumbled on to it. That aside it is in the tourist area, not far from the train station. We arrived by bus so that is outside of town a couple of kms.
The rooms are basic but clean enough for India. They have the standard wet room bathroom (like most Indian hotels) with shower wetting everything but it's still fair size bathroom from memory. Our room was on the backside of the hotel, not the road side. It was very quiet, from our window we could see the temple. There was also a massive vacant lot behind the hotel so I think that helped by not blocking the view.
They have a nice rooftop restaurant with pretty tasty food and great view of the temples. The best part was a buffet breakfast is included in the price. We had only a fan (no AC) as it was storming at the time and cool enough with the window open during the day and fan at night. The hotel staff are very friendly, family run business I think. The room was very reasonable for Madurai with most hotels charging a hefty luxury tax. We payed 850rs/night.
I would definately recommend this hotel for Madurai.
