Reviewed 28 February 2013

When we reached rameswaram its 10:30 in the night.I have opted this hotel as its very much near to temple's entrance(lets say 100m).Rooms were ok.service is also ok.I cant say that its good and its not bad also.But we will get a wake up call at morning 3:30 so that we can go to temple early to have darshan.Overall its OK experience

I stayed here for two days, part of my algal field collection expedition. Water is salty, bath room nasty and stinky, ac in ac deluxe room won't work and no room service. Pilgrim hotels tend to be just like this, not worth for money I spent. Location is bad too, west gate of temple.I learned not to enter through west, but east. after this experience, first thing I will ask in my next check-in would be, "how old this hotel is?"

Hotel Maharaja is very near to the West Entrance of temple. The location is best. We were a family group and rented four rooms. Our room was in the 3rd floor of the hotel. The rooms were neat and the toilets are not so bad. It is an old hotel. There were some maintenance works in the hotel. So in the rooms of ground and 2nd floors were not comfortable due to dust. The price of rooms were not so high. Our non a/c rooms charged Rs.475/- only. The staff were very co-operative and room service was also good.

Hotel maharaja is located probably at the best place in rameshwaram. The temple is located at 100 meteres from the hotel. Lord shiva chants start the morning with devotion to the almighty. Devotees gather at the temple to take a look at the Phosphorus idol of lord shiva. Due to location advantage one can go to the temple bare foot and not worry about loosing it anywhere. In the morning devotees go to the sea which is right behind the temple take a dip and come to the temple after changing clothes and offer their prayer.
Room service of the hotel may not be the best and sometimes attendants are late on call. Avoid hotel food completely since they do not have good cooks in the kitchen or sometimes hotel may just order your food from outside and charge you insane prices and also for the fact that if you take a walk in the market, will surely find many nice food joints which offer basic but freshly cooked food at reasonable prices.
Rooms have basic amenities but comfortable enough for a short stay of 3 days. After that you may find too many complaints for the staff to handle since due to lack of cleaning the room start to smell and crumble for resources.
All in all if you are ardent lord shive devotee these things may not matter a great deal.

Room Tip: Ask for a balcony room for temple view.
