The owner is very friendly and helpful, even though we reached at 4 in the morning he agreed to let us check-in and made our stay very comfortable. The house is located very close to the market and makes it easy to travel. Also the breakfast served by his wife is very authentic and delicious! All in all a great stay.
There is no better place to stay in Thiruvananthapuram than at Somasree. We had a fantastic time during our stay here, ate plenty of delicious home made food. The hotel couple are very accommodating and all our needs were well taken care of. The place is very near to the airport which made airport pick-up and drop a breeze. I recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a good and affordable homestay in Thiruvananthapuram.
We have some excellent days there. Actually we visit Trivandrum for some medical purpose at KIMS Hospital. And the best thing is that the location of this Somasree homestay is just near the hospital. So that we didn't felt any difficulty to find out the location. Probably there is chance for getting chlorine water, electricity problems, mosquitoes, noise, food, etc. But we didn't find any these problems here. Got nice traditional food at reliable cost and also best infrastructure. In case of service, the management finds what we want and fulfils our needs. So we had some days there like our own home. And also family friendly atmosphere. So I am sure that I will spend my next Trivandrum days there !!
This was a home stay and the family was very friendly. The rooms were spacious and all basic amenities were available. It was located in the city. Food was not provided. There were no activities or extra facilities. Overall, the stay provided value for money and it is recommended to other travellers.
From 17 May to 21 May 2014 we had visited Kerala, during our visit we have decided to stay in some home stay. I have searched all over the net and shortlisted this "Somasree HomeStay". First I would like to mention that the owner Mr. Soman knows Marathi Language, he is very helpful. Mr. Soman arranged car form Kochuveli Railway station pickup and drop . . For sightseeing he guided without any hesitation over phone. Both Mr. Soman and his wife treated us like their own family members. She prepared very nice appam, Dosa and typical Kerala side dish for us. To talk about the house, the house is situated in a nice and silent place. Overall it was wonderful stay in "Somasree Homestay". Anyone planning to stay in home stay in Trivandrum you can consider this place.
Couple of week's back we had visited Kerala, during our visit we decided to stay in some home stay. We searched all over the net contacted many people and finally shortlisted this "Somasree HomeStay". First and foremost thing I liked about this stay is the person who is owning and managing this Mr. Soman. He is very nice and helpful. Our family came from different places (Bangalore, Trichy, Salem, Singapore) and we all met in the Home Stay. Mr. Soman arranged cab for Airport pickup and has guided other guests without any hesitation over phone. Both Mr. Soman and his wife treated us like their own family members. She prepared very nice appam and typical Kerala side dish for us. To talk about the house, the house is situated in a nice and silent place. The entire house is constructed in original stones. I never saw this kind of house anywhere. We were 14 people stayed in a house as if we are staying our own house. We were provided with 4 bed rooms (Bath room attached), 1 big hall and terrace with swing. Our kids enjoyed by playing in the swing. On top of that when we requested for Ayurvedic massage he arranged for it. Overall it was wonderful stay in "Somasree Homestay". Anyone planning to stay in home stay in Trivandrum you can consider this place
We visited this place expecting some relaxed environment and spend a good time. We selected 'Somasree' and were hoping to have good 'homestay' - to our surprise it was the worst ever experience . . There are absolutely NO amenities (don't go by what is mentioned on the website - everything is plan lie). This is basically a family house with a few bed rooms which are lent out. The room was shady, and the location of this house is not at all what you would like to have when you are on vacation The basic stuff like towels, soap were not available - on asking we were given 'USED' towels and SOAP We were charged in lines with a 3 star hotel - it was a total rip-off The only silver lining was - food was good and the owner treated us well - apart from that everything is way below average Will never recommend this place to anybody.
