“This is the place...”
Reviewed 4 April 2014

...if you really need to overnight in the city.
Within walking distance to all the shopping areas this hotel has the best location. Well equipped rooms are spacy and clean.
There is no restaurant functioning on the top floor but views from the pool are nice.
Pity there is no access in the evening.
Service is mostly friendly and professional, but be sure if you order the hotel taxi, the driver gets the information of your destination. Drivandrum taxis and tuc-tuc drivers are unreliable concerning the city knowledge.
Restaurant services and menu are international level but breakfast seemed to be late every morning during our stay. According to the hotel policies there is no serving in the lobby, weird?

Room Tip: Upper floors, better views.

Cannot comment on value of this hotel as it was included as the first night of a South India tour. However, lovely big rooms and great quiet location. Did not eat breakfast here, as we chose to go to a local restaurant instead. As it was a Sunday morning, the streets were practically empty of traffic - bliss!! Beer in the basement bar quite expensive (R300) in comparison with a local working man's bar just a few minutes walk away (R110).

Hotel was modern and clean. Breakfast good and close to shops. Staff friendly and attentive.
Hard to locate down a narrow lane. Airport shuttle handy for late arrivals. Close to city attractions and beaches.

This business hotel is used by air crew which speaks for itself. A great hotel for arriving or departing via the airport as Trivandrum has little to offer the tourist. Excellent restaurant. High standards throughout.

Room Tip: High floor to avid street noise

The 7th floor is under the swimming pool and since 6 am you have the noisy pump at work. You cannot stay in your room but the swimming pool is open :-(
They know the problem but still rent the rooms
Avoid this hotel
