“A City Homestay”
Reviewed 23 June 2010

It is common for every big city in India to have one of their main roads named after the late Mahathma Gandhi. It is most often known as M.G. Road. Trivandram is no exception. However, one of the popular landmarks there is The Grand Central Hotel. Although it looks like a typical business hotel, you will be overwhelmed with a home-stay like feeling the moment you enter the hotel. With intricately crafted Kerala woodwork adorning the reception, you are bound to feel like being in a typical Malayalee home. Just five minutes away from the railway station and at the centre of the business district, The Grand Central is the most convenient hotel in the capital of Kerala.

Hi,
If you are visiting Trivandrum do avoid staying in the Grand Central hotel in Statue oppp. to the Secretariat.It is next to another hotel named "Hotel Pankaj".The rooms were smelly and to our horror in the morning we found bed bugs on our clothes and had a hard time removing them.It used to be a good hotel but nowadays due to poor management and neglect the quality has gone down the drain.

I stayed in this hotel for about 2 days . They say that this is a 3 star hotel but I felt it as a 3rd rate hotel. Their restaurant is horrible and room service is pathetic.The toilet fittings were suffering severe leakage and there was no person sent to fix it even after several requests.The accommodation was stinchy and awe full. I expected a better holiday but my hotel experience spoiled it.

We plan our x-mas holiday there. I got this hotel from the travel portal. Actually we plan to book this hotel because of the price. But it was a very good experience for us. I really wonder my check-in and check-out was made just within 5 minutes. Food is very rich and tasty and also they have lot of variety. Morning buffet simply amazing. Great location too.
