I have stayed in this lodge for three times in a row in the month of January. This is located near the railway station hardly 2mins walk we can reach the railways station. Nearby good restaurants are there which provides quality of food. There is no pre booking for this hotel which is the rule set by the management. Maximum... More

The hostel in itself was worth the price but the service was so bad and rude that we would never go back there. We had problems with everything: the price, the deposit, room keys, passport copys etc. For some reason, we were not even allowed to stay there more than two nights. There were at least five men working there,... More

This is the first hotel I was in India. Went in without reservation and was correct but not impressive. Personally I would´t recommend it but I would´t tell someone not to go either. Average. Despite this, Lallu, the guy in the reception was so helpful and polite!

Good location close to train station. Room was large, the fan worked fine for cooling the room, kind of loud from nearby busy street but manageable as far as sleeping as traffic starts to calm down, friendly staff but limited English, clean and generally friendly. My only complaint is that it is difficult to reserve in advance, I had to... More

We stayed at this hotel for a few days when we first arrived in Kerala at the start of a 4-month Indian holiday. We got one of the best rooms, one with AC and hot showers, for U.S. $17 per night -- less than half of the going rate for a similar room elsewhere in Trivandrum. Clean? Seriously, we probably...

Value for the money - the location is VERY convenient (on a quiet street very close to the train station), rooms are big and clean (simple enough but with everything budget traveller needs), and the staff is friendly and nice. Their lobby looks more posh than their standart room, but I have no complain :) I can recommend this hotel... More

I just stayed here last week and I have nothing but praise for the staff at Greenland Lodge. We stayed there just before the strike of all the rickshaw, taxi and bus drivers across India. Lallu, who was working at the front desk, was incredibly helpful as we sorted out our options for getting to the airport the next morning.... More

I stayed here for just a night, my flight arrived towards midnight & the staff were up to welcome me in. The rooms were what I expected for what I paid, a little basic. They were very clean though. No breakfast or wifi - just simple. The location is good for the train station & the Indian Coffee House just... More

Very basic and very good rooms. Walking distance to the train sation Looks completely different then when I stayed there in 1996. The single rooms in the back are the same still. Very clean for India they ask you to pay 1000 rupee deposit which is unusual.
