“Great place to stay in Madurai”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 February 2012

The Sunshine hotel is quite modern and this shows - good size well designed rooms, well laid out - working lifts, working fast wi-fi and good room service. Its just outside Madurai but only 10 minutes by autorickshaw. The restaurant is OK but the room service has a much bigger choice and is reasonably priced. The included buffet Breakfast had lots of choice and was very good.
The front desk staff were excellent - always helpful and efficient. We needed a doctor one morning - we were escorted to the hospital next door, a consultation arranged, prescription issued, medicines provided - and back to the hotel in less than 30 minutes! Unless you need to stay in the centre - this is the hotel for Madurai.

This hotel is located about a 20 minute tuk-tuk ride from the main temple. The rooms and dinning room are clean. Two sides of the hotel are about 100m from a major road. With the fan and AC on, we could still hear the constant honking of traffic -- strong sleepers wouldn't be bothered. The staff did given us a new room on the opposite side, which was very quiet. Wireless was spotty to nonexistant in both of the two rooms we tried.

Check-out time is 24 hours after you check-in -- a very nice policy.

We (two couples) stayed here for 4 nights over Xmas. The bed was bliss (comfortable with lovely linen) and the rooms very well appointed, service great and good value for money. We had an a/c room with balcony on the top floor with views over the surrounding countryside. Three rooms opened off a common lounge area from which the balconies opened. Spacious, clean and one of the best hotels we stayed in in India. It was a little out of town, so took auto rickshaws to the temple and sightseeing etc, but that also meant it was quiet.
The staff were helpful, friendly and pleasant - service with a smile. Overall we would highly recommend this hotel to mid price range travellers who are looking for a comfortable,value for money experience.

We stayed at this hotel for five nights in January,2012.Every single member of staff was polite and helpful-without exception-we would like to extend our sincere thanks to them all and especially the Front Manager-KARTHICK,who went out of his way to make our stay so enjoyable.
The room was immaculate throughout with constant hot water,AC, clean sheets and towels every day,along with a complimentary newspaper each morning.The breakfast was good with a with a wide choice of food-buffet style.Meals were served promptly and again there was a wide choice-all well prepared.Although this hotel is 10 kms from the town centre it is only a 15 minute ride by auto-rickshaw to the centre and temple and provides a quiet haven away from the chaos and noise of central Madurai. We were able to sleep at night with the windows wide open-it was so quiet.DO STAY THERE!!!!!
