Before going to Madurai I had the rooms booked at one of the finest hotels in Madurai named Madurai Residency. It is located very close to the railway station, about one km from the station. When we reached the station at night, there was a cab sent from the hotel to pick us up. We reached the hotel in no time and were given a warm welcome at the reception. I was sure that we were going to have to have a happy holiday with the Madurai Residency Madurai.
We were taken to the room that we booked and I must say that it was a very spacious and well decorated room that looked very cozy. It was equipped with all modern amenities like a telephone, air conditioner with temperature control, LCD TV with cable connection, attached bathroom with all facilities including hot/cold running water and much more. There was also 24 hour room service.
Since we were tired after the journey, we went off to sleep after getting refreshed. We had a nice stay at the hotel. The restaurant in the hotel named Mandapan was a fine one that served mouth watering dishes prepared by experienced chefs. There was a rooftop restaurant at the hotel which we enjoyed visiting in the evenings. It provided you a view of the city, especially the Meenakshi Amman Temple. The sky looked very beautiful from the rooftop with thousands of stars and the moon. The restaurant served a wide variety of Indian Continental and Chinese delicacies, as well as Tandoori and Mughlai dishes. We had a great time here and he kids absolutely loved it. There was also a bar at the hotel called Mohanam Bar, that was perfect for anyone who wants to relax with a drink or two in the evening.
There were two well equipped conference rooms and a Business centre here where meetings, social gatherings and conferences could be held. The travel desk in the hotel helped us a lot by providing information on various tourist places in Madurai and how to visit these places. They also arranged cabs for our travel at reasonable rates. We had a happy holiday with the Madurai Residency Madurai and I will recommend it to anyone who visits Madurai.
