“"Great hotel to stay if giving a test at Prometric testing center..."”
Reviewed 14 April 2013

There is a prometric testing center on the third floor, so as students, me and two of my friends contacted the general manager [his number was on the internet], he gave was really flexible in the booking and the staff was great with no old school hard time rules, rather convenient.. also the food is pleasant. Also the blazing fast WIFi facility at the Hotel was fabulous.

A friend suggested we stay here while passing through Thiruvananthapuram. It was pretty good. Everything worked in our room. I wish it was a no-smoking hotel.The room was clean and had dark drapes which was good being downtown.The restaurant was pretty good. We liked the breakfast buffet.

Room Tip: I would avoid being near the road. People dragging furniture usually makes the most noise. It is nic...

Just average sadhya during onam festival. Payasam was good. the neatness was good. It was properly arranged. The staff was excellent in their behavior. The location of the hotel is good and the overall effort is worth commenting.

This is as best as it comes near the medical college, TVM. It is priced decently and probably was a good hotel some time back - say that because the decors are beginning to peel off, the restaurant sounded good until you get the food, which was okay at the best. The breakfast buffet with a small # of choices is okay, but the service is inadequate with long wait times for refill. And then there is the bar - the service is simply not adequate. The room is decent, bathrooms can be improved a lot (especially change that medimix soap please - for the money some one pays to stay here, you can get a better soap). The saving grace is the front desk staff. Then this is the only decent option around this place. so you have to make a call.

Room Tip: If you do need to stay near the medical college, then this is probably the best available option.
