We stayed in a double room for two nights. The room was clean, but we had no bed sheets to sleep under, no towels and no toilet paper. Not sure if it wasn't included in the room or if they had forgotten to fix it. The staff wasnt that service minded either. We paid 800 rupees which for this hotel... More

Good enough for a short stay but don't book a cab from here. The hotel owner will have some travel packages like to & fro to Rameshwaram. Don't book that else you will spend 2 days in stress. The driver will think that he has hired you.

Overall quite a poor experience, the hotel interior resembled something out of a horror movie. Our room had no windows meaning we had to wake up in pitch black and the sheets whilst clean were quite stained (blood stains on one). Whilst we did opt for a non AC room the ceiling fans were not satisfactory, especially with the lack... More

If you are going to visit Madurai just because of Meenakshi Amma Temple and her darshanas then it is a cheap and best option because of being near to it . Hotel is not having any restaurant ,one should try the snacks i the street down the lane .

Nothing special at all by backpacker standards. Decent price. Excellent location - so close to the temple and near some cheap eateries. They offer tours and drop offs to Kodaikanal at reasonable prices.

As I stayed there for one night, it is budget hotel near to temple. My auto driver took me there and I had to spent only one night I was agreed to stay there. Stay was comfortable and if someone need luxury go to big hotels.

We stayed at this hotel for one night, because it was the first budget place we found after arriving late in Madurai. It is not worth what it charges, since the only good thing about it is the location near the temple, train station and bus station. Other than that, the bed sheets and the walls were dirty, the tiny... More

Very good location but that's it. Budget place for one night but it can be very noisy. Rooms are small and not that clean. Sleep here and go to the upmarket hotels a little further to enjoy great views of the temple at the rooftop restaurants.

We took this hotel juste for 1 night. This hotel does the job but just for 1 night: and that's it: Noisy and not very clean, very basic with no charm. Location is convenient, close to the temple. Our bathroom was destroyed.
