I often travel to Madurai for business and to find a good accommodation, not too expensive, it's not so easy. This hotel is a good compromise: it is not perfect, especially the service could be improved, but the prices are correct (2.500 Rs for a single room and 2.800 Rs for a double), the rooms comfortable (especially the beds) and clean. Another great advantage is that they have check-in and check-out 24hrs. It means that if you arrive, like me, at 3am at the train station or the bus station (both at 5 minutes walking!) and you leave the same day at 9pm or 10pm, you only pay one day of stay! Instead of paying 2 nights, as most of the other hotels do.
Of course there are a couple of problems: the breakfast lounge is dark and super cold because of the a/c, the service is slow (and sometimes they forget things...), sometimes (but only sometimes) the staff at the reception is not so friendly and once they called me at 5am in my room asking me if I was checking out (of course not, since I was peacefully sleeping...)! Nevertheless, my overall opinion of this hotel is good, especially if compared to other hotels I tried in Madurai.
