Comfortable and family friendly hotel


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 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 WiFi too.

Excellent stay & cooperative staff


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.
