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..

This hotel charges your credit card in full in advance, and refunds whatever balance you may deserve, in cash, at checkout. Since we decided to leave earlier than planned we were owed a rather substantial amount--which we needed to wait for over 40 minutes. Knowing we were in a hurry the desk manager tried to shortchange us 900 rupee and send us off hurriedly. Only when we requested a printout of the bill (common practice at this hotel's checkout) were we given the right amount. This sad experience added to an already sad stay, much overpriced. The bathroom lacked any ventilation and always remained wet, hot water ran only in the morning, the room had a strong mothball smell, and breakfast was mediocre. Stay here only if you really need to be surrounded by westerners, and make sure to double check your change...

We booked 2 nights in the 3beds "suite" of the Madurai Residency. We were disapointed with the quality of the room. It was old fashionned, not very clean, incredibly noisy (bring ear plugs!!) and we had to call someone because lights were not functionning. It was too expensive for the quality of the room. Note that they are doing some renovation works, maybe the renovated rooms are better. Free wifi and computer available in the reception lobby only.Well located in the center of the city. The roof top restaurant is nice and the food was good.
