Hotel Pankaj
Reviewed 30 March 2014

We stayed at the Pankaj for 2 nights in March 2014 on our way to Kovalam.
The hotel advertises that it has wifi available but this is not the case - no wifi is available for guests as I have found to be the case in other hotels in India. It is advertised because it is widely known that foreign guests expect to have access.
The Pankaj mainly caters to domestc tourists, this is reflected in the breakfast menu which consists of Indian food items.
That is not to say that the Pankaj is a bad hotel choice.
Rooms are clean, a/c works well, beds are comfy, hot water was good and the shower was excellent.
I would stay there again for a short stop in trivandrum.

Room Tip: Choose a room away from the front of the hotel (main road).

This is purely a restaurant lunch review. The staff was disappointing, really didn't provide much service, and the linens were stained. The positives was that it was air conditioned, provided a well lighted view. Out of the entire buffet, only the ice cream can be recommended. It seems that more politicians come here than others and hence are the only ones who really receive any attention.

Overall good staff and hospitality.
Adequate rooms and facilities.
Situated in heart of city; with busstop in front and vegetarian hotel annapoorna next door.
can get autos to get around all important places nearby.
excellent traditional style kerala breakfast included in price.
Contacted few hotels over telephone before visiting trivandrum; only pankaj hotel offered discount over their quoted rates. And they kept their word.
No second thoughts needed for stay here.

My overall experience at this hotel was Very Good:
1. Room was clean and comfortable
2. Lunch buffet for Rs 280 with tax was good
3. Breakfast was OK, but as they had served Kerala cuisine it was good
4. Staff was polite

Its a good business hotel right in the heart of the city. Rooms are quite good with all rooms A/c, Service is quite good. They have 2 restaurant on the roof serving very good food. Their charges are also reasonable. Looks from outside is small, but interiors are quite good.

Room Tip: Check out for the newly completed rooms which are quite good

I have been staying at the Pankaj for several years. In spite of many new hotels having come up, I haven't found any matching Pankaj in style, comfort, unobtrusive service and very good food in downtown Trivandrum. It's perhaps the oldest star-rated hotel in the city. The hotel continues to be renovated and kept neat and functional. By avoiding expensive luxuries, Pankaj offers a tariff that is easy on the pocket. Its restaurants and bar are stocked reasonably well. Located opposite the state legislative secretariat, and in the heart of the city's shopping district, Pankaj offers conveniences galore. I have always come away from my each stay there, knowing that when work, holiday or family engagements bring to Trivandrum, I shall be back at Pankaj.
