“Alright as a Budget Hotel”
Reviewed 18 April 2014

The hotel is centrally located. Clean and reasonably comfortable bed for the weary traveler. Only towels (no napkins) are provided. Small Medimix soaps are provided. Autos and taxis are readily available but will charge hefty. You realise it on your return trip when the other fellow charges properly by meter. So near the hotel you need to negotiate. The buffet breakfast that comes as a part of the hotel rental deal was tasty and filling. We did not try their restaurant for dining as we thought the rates high. There are decent restaurants very close by where dining is quite inexpensive. We ordered evening tea in the room which did not arrive for more than half an hour and so was cancelled.

If you are looking for a neat, centrally located budget hotel in Trivandrum this is an ideal property. Dont expect too much just plain average hotel but you wont regret. Break fast served is good. Lunch is traditional Kerala food I was bit disappointed that it was arranged as a buffet. Could have served in traditional style.

This is a decent budget hotel owned & managed by KTDC. Hotel is located at prime location near railway station. The hotel has a nice restaurant. You will get taxis & autos just in front of the hotel. The TV in our room was not working but it was replaced quickly by the staff. Some of the rooms located near busy road are noisy.

Pros:
1. Excellent location; just opposite to Trivandrum Central railway station & 15 mins drive from Trivandrum airport.
2. Items served during breakfast was varied and tasty.
3. Good veg & non-veg restaurants nearby.
4. Places of interest are also nearby, namely Sri Padmanabhaswamy Temple, Shangumugham Beach, Kovalam Beach, etc.
5. A bustling market on the side, where you can get a variety of stuffs at an economical price and also get to interact with the locals.


Cons:
1. Staff at the reception are very cold. They don't really seem interested in answering any queries if you have any & gives a very irritated look.
2. The A/C was not working in our room. Even after complaining they didn't pay any heed.
3. The room had a stale smell; however the bathroom was quite large.
4. The scene outside our window was not really pretty. Fortunately we used to spend the whole day outside the hotel visiting places of tourist attraction, so we our eyes were spared the horror.

I would suggest this hotel if you are on a budget and plan to spend the whole day outside sight-seeing.

I stayed here with my friends during July 2013.It s goood hotel in town.Very near to Tiruvanthapuram padmanabha swamy temple..Not walkable..But located in friendly place..
I want to tell about Ms Sophi - reservation Manager who she helped me alot during my stay..She organised everything in well manner & gave me goood discount in price during our stay.

We took around 10 rooms (since we are 30 members), all rooms are very clean and good hospitality..Where Breakfast as been given complimentary.

Try this hotel when you think about trivandeum but busiest hotel and busy town tooo.

Myself along with my family stayed in this hotel in December 2013, I booked it online and got some discounts too. Online does not let you to select your preferred check-in time, so I had to call them up to arrange it.
Hotel is in a prime location, reception guys were very helpful for me, they arrange a cab for my day visit around Trivandrum. Hotel is run by KTDC so KTDC office is at the next door so It was easy for me to take a KTDC package to Kodaikanal next day.
Hotel rooms were not that great, had asked for extra bed which was not arranged had to ask again, and they don't even clean the room on daily basis, hot water service was good. Complimentary breakfast was okay. Coffee or Tea was terrible. Better avoid it. Overall stay was good.

Booked Hotel Chaithram on assumption that it will be nice hotel as it is a govt managed hotel which tries to attract the tourists claiming Kerala to be "God's own country". Location of the hotel is very good but other things make you rue about your decision to stay here.On entering the allotted room, we found dead cockroaches with lot of ants surrounding them and foul smell. When requested front office people offered to shift to another room within 15-20 minutes. finally, it took us one hour to shift to a reasonable room where fan was working only at one speed either full speed or nil speed although AC was working fine.
Breakfast was good but served cold .Did not order food so can not comment about service quality. This hotel is good for business travellers due to its excellent location but not for a family on vacation to enjoy holidays
