Ruby Arena, Trivandrum(Thiruvananthapuram)
Kumarapuram Road Medical College P.O Thiruvananthapuram
Me and my wife visited Trivandrum after our marriage for a leisure trip. Being close to the Medical College, it was the main reason to stay here. Although, not very attractive from outside, it had all basic three-star facilities. The front reception was friendly and cooperative. The suite room was twice the size of regular room without significant price difference. There was a separate area outside the bedroom for dining table and storage with TV. The complimentary breakfast was delicious and gave a good start of the day. The restaurant was small and quiet. Restaurant staff were courteous. Bathroom amenities and minibar items were basic. No activities to do in this hotel. Definitely recommended for a short business / leisure trip. Advice : Take a room on higher floor and on back side to avoid city traffic noise.
The room was neat and good. Presently, the property is going through a makeover, hence the reception area is a bit dusty. The bathroom also needs some refurbishment. I had booked online(goibibo) and hence had complimentary breakfast. The food was good. Easily accessible to to Trivandrum Medical College. We had earlier stayed at Nasa Hotel(no complimentary breakfast/Wi-Fi) and compared to that and for the price I would say this was a good deal. They have complimentary Wi-Fi too.
I visited Thiruvananthapuram on an official tour, and stayed at this hotel. The hotel location and area was good. The appearance of hotel was nice.

The staff's were well behaved in the hotel. There was no activity arranged by the hotel. The complimentary food was available at the hotel. I would like to recommend this hotel to upcoming travellers. The transportation facility was not provided by the hotel.
Overall experience was good. I visited in the month of November 2013 and stayed for one day with my friends and it was a relaxation trip. Hotel was conveniently located and easily found it. I travelled in the car. Staff were friendly and professional. Appearance was good. Room was spacious, neat, clean and well-maintained and washroom was also neat and clean. All the basic amenities and complimentary were in working condition. There was a city view from the room. Food was good but it was complimentary breakfast.
