very very bad..the employees are not friendly...they will smoke in the hotel itself...i stayed 6 days here..very poor hotel..the rooms are small and not friendly at all...pls think once , before taking rooms in this hotel...laundry service is poor and very costly and no hot water available...the bed will shake , it is very old and sound will come while shaking...
There is no telephone call facility to make a local call as I traveled from abroad and I didn't had the local sim card to make a call. The day time reception staffs are not friendly are not at all. cleanliness is poor.
We stayed there for few nights during our visit to Trivandrum. It is nice budget hotel near Trivandrum Central Railway Station and very near to the main road. Though rooms are small, but hotel staffs are very helpful and cooperative.
The hotel is cheaper compared to the surrounding hotels & considering the location. Its just 500mtr from the Railway Station with communication to surrounding places are well available. The rooms are very small & dark. Beds are even smaller - the double provided to us was smaller than our household double bed!!!! Food facility is not available & neither is laundry - which posed a great hassle for us during the stay. People are helpful though - and that is one thing I liked about this place.
This hotel is in Trivandrum, on Manjalikulam Road, just a short walk from the central train and bus stations. I'd tried to reserve a hotel ahead, but everything nice seemed to be booked due to a conference, so we decided to just find something when we got there. Our first stop was the tourist center (next to the Hotel Chaithram, opposite the train station), who were absolutely hopeless. They said the Chaithram was full and had no other suggestions, so we set off along Manjalikulam Road, one of the main hotel drags. After asking at a couple of hotels, we tried the Sukhvas and they had a non AC room available for 600IR a night. Bargain! This is a traveller hotel...no frills! No towels or toilet paper. It's nothing much to look at, but it's in a great location (opposite the Highway Hotel). It's not particularly clean and I tried not to dwell on that too much, but the bed was comfortable and we had water on demand (no hot water, but to be honest it was too hot in Feb to want anything but a cold shower!). The fan and the tv worked and we rigged up our mosquito net. We were only in Trivandrum for a couple of nights and were out most of the time, so as somewhere to lay your heads it was fine. I wouldn't exactly recommend it, and there are certainly better places to stay, but there are also worse and you get what you pay for. I like my comforts, but for a short stay it was fine. Other recommendations in the area. We ate at the Prime Restaurant on the corner of Manjalikulam and Station Road. A great local cafe for local people. We had breakfast at the Indian Coffee House in the spiral brick building next to the bus station, serving good cheap keralan staples. A fantastic experience. For a really great evening meal we highly recommend the Arya Nivas Hotel Restaurant. I suggest you get there early though! We arrived at 7 and got a table, but by the time we left people were queing to get in. It's very popular with indian families. It has AC and a varied vegetarian menu. For a treat we went for a coffee at the fancy Classic Avenue Hotel, a little further up Manjalikulam Road, and shouldn't have bothered. It was served in a characterless, empty side room. By the way, Conemara Market is shut on Sundays and Puttan Malika Palace is shut on Mondays . I hope all that is useful. Enjoy your trip.
