Ranked #19 of 81 Hotels in Shirdi
Reviewed 21 June 2014

Matrix Inn is a nice hotel in Shirdi having neat and comfortable rooms with reasonable tariffs. The hotel staff are very courteous and helpful. It was very thoughtful we were offered some "prasadam" and a book on Baba at the time of check out. The hotel is attached with a restaurant but the food is little expensive when compared to its quality and quantity.

Room Tip: The hotel generally offers up gradation which you can avail of yourself.

I got a good deal on the MMT website for this hotel and after reading lot of reviews, I made my booking with them. Hotel is approx. 1 km from the temple. In terms of the look of the hotel, the facilities provided are good. I was provided free upgraded from classic to suite since there were a group of 50 people check-in at the same time. Good: Nice hotel with good interiors and exteriors, staff is nice and the rooms are clean. Bads: First day lunch at hotel. I could see only two staff at the restaurant, one was the person taking order and second was the cashier. There was option for buffet lunch and order from the menu. I preferred ordering from menu. Firstly, I had to call him to come and take order, they were running since buffet was not ready, I had to ask for water. After following up, I finally got food after half hour. Vegetable was salty, so he gave me again with some modifications. Food is not great altogether. Morning breakfast had lot of variety but it did not had the taste. Overall average experience with food but otherwise, it was nice. On other days for lunch and dinner, I went to Rajdhani for lunch and highway dhabas for dinner. It was awesome experience.

Room Tip: Overall a very good hotel.

We went on a family pilgrimage and stayed at Matrix Inn just for the day. The layout is very pleasing and the staff very courteous. In fact we reached around 2 pm on a Monday afternoon, when the food was almost over in the restaurant. They asked us to order food and visit the temple and when we returned, we had hot food waiting for us. The bathrooms were large and the rooms comfortable. I would highly recommend it.

We stayed here for two nights and the stay was extremely comfortable. The hotel is nearby Shirdi Railway Station and the Sai Baba Temple is also not very far off. If you book the Breakfast Meal package, then you get a free pickup and drop to Sai Baba Temple. The staff is very courteous and helpful, they did everything they could to make our stay comfortable. In terms of cleanliness, the rooms are well maintained and washrooms very clean. We were a group of 3 people and stayed in a single room that had an additional single bed. The room size was quite big. Definitely recommended for stay in Shirdi.

Tip: Better to book the breakfast meal package as the food is very good and it comes at a nominal cost.

Nicely maintained rooms. Unlimited pickup and drops to temple location.Refrigerators are not there in rooms.We had a kid along, and wanted to have ref for keeping milk. They served us day and night with hot milk whenever required in 3 days of our stay. They were on their toes to serve us.

5 stars for their cooperation and attitude.

Firstly location wise...nothing great, it's on Manmad Shirdi highway road, so there is no much free space in the front or behind side of the hotel.
The hotel is new however small comfort aspects are ignored...there are no hooks to hang clothes in the bathroom, laundary bags are not provided in the rooms, till 7.45 AM full breakfast spread is not laid out, room service menu is limited, especially the kids selection has nothing major (not even french fries!). There is nothing to keep the kids engaged, even the TV channels are limited, here also the channels that kids usually watch are missing!

They can charge a bit more but make it more family friendly!!!

Room Tip: If staying, take a room away from the construction side (on one side aniother new hotel is getting c...
