Madurai Residency
Ranked #8 of 54 Hotels in Madurai
Reviewed 3 June 2012

Keep in mind there are not many options in the center of Madurai, and this is a budget hotel.
Pros:
Centrally located, about 10 min walk from Meenakshi Temple.
Really enjoyed the meal they served at dinner with reasonable price (however they definitely need to turn up the lights in the restaurant at night, bordering on creepy here!)
Travel desk - very helpful.
The bar below the hotel in the parking garage, I think pretty good for the area!
The rooftop view is awesome! You can also dine there, which I did not.
Cons:
The room...and I am referring to a standard room, very basic, TV did not work, room phone covered in dust so obvious enough it had to have been weeks since it was dusted, and if you want hot water get it before 0900 because after that hot water is off (luckily though they will inform you of that at check in). Also be prepared for the BIG rain storm when you turn on the water for your morning shower, the entire bathroom will be soaking wet so make sure everything is out of there!!
Breakfast buffet - not much selection, food luke warm to cold, and with that you might have difficulty finding seating.

Room Tip: If you choose to stay here, I would pay what little it cost for an upgrade

It is centrally located and walk able distance from most land marks like Bus Terminal, Train Station, Meenakshi Temple etc.The reception lounge and interiors are tastefully decorated with a heavy dose of ethnic flavor. The staff are very courteous but more comfortable in speaking Tamil causing a bit of discomfort to people from other regions. The complementary breakfast is entirely a south Indian delight with very limited variations, but very tasty nevertheless.
The rooms are well furnished. The treatment is Royal on the first day of arrival. But if you happen to stay longer, the "House Keeping" quality deteriorates. Probably a case of familiarity breeding disregard. Towels may remain unchanged, glasses not washed and toilet not cleaned.
But if you overlook that, then this place is real value for money.

For Rs 2000 + Taxes, Madurai residency provides very clean, very neat, very well air-conditioned, very well located (near the station, busstand, market and temple) double-occupancy rooms including morning wonderful south indian breakfast. In addition, they provide 1L water, 2 brushes, tooth-paste, soaps, oil, shampoo, conditioner, towels, news paper, shaving razor, shower cover, etc. Morning breakfast was awesome with coffee, tea, idly, dosa, pongal, halwa/pudding, bread sandwich, omlet, fresh juice, fruit salads, kichdi, sambar, chutney, etc. They ensure power availability 24 hours, despite utility power outages for more than 8 hours everyday. I stayed for 3 nights with my family and very satisfied with what they'd offered us.

Room Tip: When you book for double occupancy, prefer the room with the double bed instead of two single beds...

I stayed there with my mother and two children, so we booked a suite to accommodate me and the children in one bed and my mother in another. The main bedroom was comfortable, with a western style toilet (Indian style bathroom overall), very comfortable bed and plenty of space. The area where my mother slept near the door was dark and poky, quite odd in design, but did feature a second bathroom (with squat toilet). Overall, the room was comfortable and in line with expectations, aside from some further attention needed as the room had apparently been prepared in haste (see below).

The location is great, close to Meenakshi Temple, and with plenty of places to eat nearby. There is a rooftop bar which has good views, although we only visited it during the day when not open. Location is very handy for reaching other places and attractions.

Breakfast was included, and had a reasonable range, but was very crowded (my family was unable to get a table even for two people to eat alone, and so shared with others) - getting there early would no doubt avoid this though. We used the room service, and were very happy with both the menu, food and service. One thing that was great about the room service menu was that there was some reference to food safety, which provided assurance and allowed the kids to have a few dishes they'd had to avoid in most other places we visited.

There were some internet terminals in the lobby, and the lobby in general was very pleasant.

This hotel has 24 hour check in/check out, which may be beneficial for some, but for us was a problem, as arriving at 4pm we found that our room was still not available and so we had to wait. Not a problem if you were leaving late in the day and so could take advantage of checking out at 5pm, but was purely a negative for us as leaving early in the morning.
