The location seems to be good but the room was bad. Taps are turned the other way.. tv didn't work. Mosquito were on plenty. Even the staff were getting bitten hard. All the pictures are too old. So don't be fooled. You will see everything but in bad condition. The location is very good. The trains run just across and... More

For the amount we pay, they can provide better service.. Do check the room properly before booking.. The first room they showed had cockroaches.. After we complained they showed us a better room.. The service is not that great.. Inspite of asking them to clean the room when we left in the morning, they hadn't cleaned it.. The restaurant in... More

The reception staff were polite and helpful/good. The rooms were bearable. Not as clean as in a private run good hotel. The AC was dirty and not cleaned. The room looked used and run down. The bedding was just bearable. The bathroom was ok. There were no separate fauset for the WC nor separate bucket/mug. The toilet soap from Earthi... More

The only plus point going for the hotel is its close proximity to the railway and bus stations. Everything just goes down after that. Rooms are shabby and Ill maintained, AC had a mind of its own, breakfast was terrible (even though they were refilling on time the food was somehow cold). For the money you are spending, there are...

The best attraction of this hotel is definitely the location. Its close to the railway station, and major tourists attractions in the city. The rooms are quite spacious. However the place does feel it's age. The sheets and blankets might need replacement. The common toilets too need a makeover. The place feels I must say...a bit seedy. The restaurant however...

Chaithram Hotel is located near to Railway station and Central Bus stand in Capital of Kerala. This hotel is under the ownership of Kerala Tourism Development Corporation. Another plus point of this hotel is affordable rates. It is not well maintained. Average neatness.

Location is the best attraction , it is just 50 meter walk to railway station and bus terminal Rooms are getting old and no proper maintanence is there. But feels the rates are still comfortable. It is a good budget hotel for low budget AC rooms

Like all the reviews i would say the proximity of this hotel to all popular places is good. However food wise this hotel can do much better. Rooms are just okay. The people in the reception are helpful and do give correct information.

A totally rundown hotel. Built in 80s, the hotel badly needs a full makeover to make it competitive. We stayed 2 nights here and didn't enjoy the stay. Room service is extremely slow. Needed to call 3 times for extra towels. Finally given after 45 minutes. No hot water on 2nd day, so had to skip bath for kids. Restaurant... More

Good budget hotel by KTDC opposite to railway station. Worth the stay for the rate with immediate access to railway station and bus station. If you crave for liqour in the bar; this hotel is a good option as many hotels in Kerala have been barred with bar license.
