bad choice for foreigners
Posted Apr 30, 2012 on Hotels
If you are a foreigner (from the USA or Europe) it will be a bad choice for you to stay in Royal Court. We made this mistake and I’m writing that review because I don’t want anyone else to make the same mistake. Towels and bed linen look grey instead of white, shower curtain is all stained, so as bath itself and dishes at coffee table. With completely closed windows you can hear everything that is going on outside, and as hotel is located close to railway station it is really noisy during night, so you should forget about nice rest. Food for complimentary breakfast is all cold. There is system to heat it, but it doesn’t work properly. When you order something from regular menu it takes ages to get your order. But to be honest, if you were patient enough to wait for about an hour to get your order, food will be delicious. For sure, staff in restaurant (all of them – cooks, waiters) does better job here than housekeeping. Anyway,for foreigners that come to Madurai I can recommend Fortune Pandian to stay. Usually we stay in Pandian, but this coming my husband wanted to try “different place”, now he realizes himself that decision to stay in Royal Court was really a big mistake. Even Fortune isn’t the same level as we are used to see in our countries, but it is the best place to stay in Madurai. If you didn’t like staying in Pandian, it means that you had no chance to compare it with other Madurai hotels. As soon as you compare, you will agree with me.
