“Fits a tight budget”
Reviewed 17 July 2014

If you are looking for a simple no frills but clean hotel you may opt for this. The rooms are spacious and clean. Bath rooms are clean too. Service is sluggish generally. We went in a group and so we could get some extra care. The food is good.Good for those who have a tight budget.

It is at a walking distance from Trivandrum Central train station and 20 mins from the airport.

Its been long time this hotel is there in the heart of the city but ... nobody is taking care of the facilities and no maintanance is taking place on time ... There is no sufficient staffs and one manager cannot run the show alone ...

This is a budget hotel which can be improved upon.This hotel's usp is near to railway station. One can stay there for a day or two. It has a dosa parlour where one can have hot dosas and coffee. The problem is manpower is less. It needs dynamic manager to run the show. During our stay room was cleaned every day.

Stayed November 2013, travelled as a couple

Please don't suggest this Hotel to anyone. Here from room service to everything is horrible. Never is on time and the rooms are not clean at all. Room Service menu is extremely expensive based on their standards.

This was one of the oldest hotels in Thrivandrum city. We had not made any advance booking and walked into it on a weekday for a single night stay. AC Rooms were available. Some of the floors of the hotel are under renovation. The entire place has an old look to it. It’s bang on the main road and is very close to the railway station, bus stand and a prime location to reach any other part of the city. The sofa at the lobby was really worn out. The rooms are pretty small and very basic. The saving grace was the bathroom which was neat and clean. The curtains, other furniture, bedding are worn out and not up to the mark. Service & staffs are average. Complimentary breakfast is provided but we did not use the same. The room rates are quite competitive and match up to other hotels around the place. The place is very best and best suited for folks who need a place to dump their stuff and roam around. The place offers 24 hrs check in check out option. There is KTDC office in the building and their services can be used for arranging sightseeing activities.

Room Tip: We did not have any option to choose the room but thankfully we did not have too much of disturbance...
