I really enjoyed my stay at Hotel Nambi. The front desk employees were friendly and talking to the manager, S Ambalavanan, was a delight. He took me to the roof so I could get a photo of the temples from above. The hotel's location is perfect. You are 3 minutes away from the Temple and there are many restaurant options...

The hotel was conveniently located near Meenakshi Amman temple. Staff were ok. Room wasn't very clean. NOTE: We took 2 bus tours arranged by the hotel. Although they knew we were American they did NOT tell us the tours were in Tamil only. Neither bus driver spoke English. We didn't care but you might.

I stayed at this hotel with my wife on 30 Jan 2017. This hotel is good for the price you pay. Hotel is very clean, room was clean too. Don't get fooled by the entrance . The receptionist was very friendly and staff were very courteous and very helpful. It's very close to meenakshi temple hardly 2 mins. You don't...

I was told by travellers I'd met earlier in January that There was nothing to like about Madurai, but that is completely untrue. Wonderful city, we stayed very near to the Sri Meenakshi Temple in the Nambi Hotel. We hadn't booked, we just turned up and took a chance. It was less than a five minute walk from the temple....

Initially my booking was for 5 nights I.e from...

First the pros: Location is ideal. A 2 min walk from the temple. The staff tries to be helpful. Allowed early check-in. Okay, now on to the long list of cons: The AC stops working in the middle of the day, due to power cuts in the city. A better hotel would have handled the issue with a power generator,...

The rooms are decent and the location is convenient to the temple. If you don't require anything of the management it might be perfectly suitable. We had several problems: 1. We booked the room by phone saying that we needed 3 beds. When we arrived we discovered that they intended to just put a mattress on the floor, which was...
