“Lovely apartment and home cooking in Madurai”
Reviewed 13 December 2018 for a stay in November 2018

Madurai was the first visit on our tour of Tamil Nadu. After finding Kolam Rooms (a bit tricky for the taxi driver from the airport) we were welcomed by the housekeeper/cook and a large clean room. The location is excellent for the Menakshi temple complex, but in a busy commercial area. The real bonus was the home cooking for breakfast (included in price) and very reasonable and tasty dinner choices.

“Good Location, Great Service and GREAT ROOF TOP!”
Reviewed 7 March 2018 for a stay in February 2018

Even after staying here, we are not sure how to categorize this concept. Kolam Homes is part AirBnB, part B&B, part resident hotel, just not sure. However you categorize it, it met our needs and was a great place to stay in Madurai. Most of the hotels are over closer to the train and bus stations, but Kolam is located about five minutes south of Meenakshi Temple, likely your main destination in Madurai. It is only about a 20 minute walk to where the hotels are, which you may need to go to for restaurants, as there are few in the temple area and south, great street food stalls being the exception. When you arrive, one of you, if more than one, might wind your way up the several signed flights of stairs to let Juggernaut know you have arrived. He will help you with your luggage and anything else you need during your stay. We weren’t sure what to consider him. The Kolam information refers to him as a “caretaker”, but he is much more than that. He is there 24/7, and will do his best to meet any requests, cooks breakfast, western or local, and made a beer run for us the night we just wanted to chill on the rooftop for the sunset (highly recommend you to take advantage of the roof, both early morning and evening). Our room had no windows and was a bit cave like, but that was a plus, given the heat of South India. I think there are only two rooms, but I could be mistaken. The room was spacious, the bed large, and lots of storage if there for an extended stay. (The TV cable had lots of language options and the wifi was up to standards. All in all, Kolam is a good option for Madurai.
