Centrally placed across the road from the Railway Station, it is a walkable (just) distance from the Meenakshi temple. However the traffic in Madurai has become so awful you are better off taking an autorickshaw. The lobby has a veneer of comfort and the staff if not overfriendly are reasonably helpful. We had a standard type room which was of a reasonable size. however the floor was dirty, and the sheets grubby. There was a poor quality old fashioned TV. There were almost no plugs in the room (well there was one). The shower was good with abundant hot water. There was also a slow free wifi service. The worst feature was the hotel generator which went on at 6am and reverberated through our room booming and throbbing. Sleep at this point was impossible. There is room service but when we ordered a large pot of coffee we were essentially given hot milk.
The hotel has a large South Indian buffet breakfast; unfortunately there was no attempt to keep it warm so by the time we got there at 8.30 it was cold and greasy.
Overall the hotel was way overpriced (£60 sterling incl. taxes). We had paid in advance for nights but left a day early with no refund. My suggestion would be stay at the GRT, it is a bit further out but it has a great restaurant.
