The hotel is centrally located in the city center near the Mahalaxmi Temple. The Hotel New College House is a traditional pilgrimage hotel similar to the Dhasa Prakash in...

I frequently visit Madurai and I mostly stay in this hotel. The hotel is in the prime location , opposite to Railway station, approx a km from Meenakshi amman temple. The staffs are courteous, I normally reserve rooms in advance but never paid the money ib advanced. They trust customers' word of mouth and block the room. I never saw...

Located in 2, Town Hall road, near to bus stand, railway station and the temple in Madurai. Travel Desk, Resturant, parking all in the same house, for window shopping and street foods go to the front of hotel. The Hotel is identified by name due to its long history and its services for more than 5 decades.

The place is located close to the bus stand, railway station and the temple. And it offers car parking space (which is rare in that area). Apart from this there are no good things about the hotel. The rooms are old and shabby. The place is very noisy. Overall it is an average budget hotel.

Step out of the hotel and you have all the shops around just walk along the street doing some window shopping and having some street foods and...

Hotel is cheaper compared to other hotels in the locality. Rooms neatness is OK. Literally there will not be any service since there are very minimal staff members. One big plus of this hotel is that it is closer to main business area and railway station. Also you will get bus to go to any place with in city since...

I was here with my family this July, and expected it to be a decent once considering its popularity locally. For the amount they charge, the facility is utterly poor. TV wasn't working and it wasn't resolved despite our repeated complaints. The hotel staff doesn't speak anything other than Tamil, which makes it that much difficult to communicate. Considering the...

I am a resident of Madurai and the lodging here is certainly not the best in the city . I have been twice to the restaurant and the service there is damn poor. The waiter attends your needs quickly with a pleasant smile but the food is served quite late. For instance , it took them more than 20 minutes...
