Good and comfortable stay


It was my trip to Madurai in the month of October 2016 where I stayed in the Maharaja Hotel. It was my religious trip with family. I would rate the destination as average. I would rate the location as good because it is at main center. I would rate the appearance of the hotel as good as it is very clean. The staff at the reception was very good because of 24/7 availability. I booked this room directly at hotel. I would rate the services in the hotel were good because of availability of service. The hotel room was very good because of nice view and facilities. I would rate food as good because of taste and price is not high.

An economic hotel for stay


Hotel Maharaja is an economic hotel for stay. Cost is not very high. Room service was not up to mark but overall hotel is good. Location near Mattuthavani bus stand which is 24 hours operational. So conveyance available for everywhere and anytime. Hotel staff was very good. There was some language problem for north Indians but they are able to understand your requirement.

Convenient location & spacious rooms


I reached Madurae by public transport with my family for my business purpose in July. Pick and drop facility was not provided by the hotel. Hotel location was convenient and little far from the temple. Service and staff behaviour was good and service was on time. Room was maintained and spacious. Room facility was satisfactory. I did not appear any activity in the hotel area. Madurai as a destination is peaceful place for travellers. I booked it online. Billing and booking process was very easy. Hotel services were up to the mark. I had continental breakfast there and it was okay.
