Excellent staff and service in the hotel


The Grand Central Hotel was my stay in the month of February 2017 when I had been to Madurai. It was my religious trip with family. My travel destination was good because scenic place with appropriate weather. I would rate the location as average. I would rate the appearance of the hotel as average. The staff at the reception was good as they are polite and responsive. I booked my room direct at hotel. The house keeping services were average since it is for limited time. Rooms which we stayed in were good with facilities and hygiene. I would rate food as good because of taste and price is not high.

Good location, hotel ambience was clean


Just opp to railway station and quiet near to bus stand. Check-in and Check-out procedures were quiet fast and easy. Hotel maintained a good and clean ambience. Had tried their buffet breakfast. Lots of option from South Indian food as well as contemporary breakfast. By the way food was very tasty also. Also booked Madurai sight seeing service from the hotel only in a good price and a friendly driver also.

Slight higher tariff but worth spent


It was visit on religious purpose with my parents. We had stayed there for 3 nights. Nice cosy ambience, spacious rooms, clean and well decorated. Service was top notch and tariff was slightly higher, but it was worth spent. Staff was friendly and helpful, they were really nice to my old parents. Overall it was indeed nice stay. I would recommend this property if you are travelling with family .

Low budget hotel


Hotel is not so good. Reception was poor. Staff is not responsive. Services are below average. Hotel is located very near to station. Meenakshi Temple is also at walking distance from there. It is a good looking hotel. I booked a non AC room there. AC rooms may be good but it was moderate. TV is provided but there is no geyser facility. Food is not available in the hotel. There is no arrangement of activities. Madurai is a nice place to visit. Hotel can be recommended because it is a low budget hotel.

Close to temple, no restaurant facility


I stayed in this hotel for official purpose. It was a normal hotel but has a wifi connection. The location is very close to the temple and a temple view from the room and it?s a walkable distance to the temple. It is located about 5 min from railway station and 15 min from the bus stand. They don?t have any restaurant facility, it?s only lodging. It is underground parking. Complimentary food was not provided. Pick and drop facilities are available.
