We stayed for a night here while visiting padmanabha temple. We drove in around 8pm and found it extremely difficult to park as most slots were taken by people visiting the bar in hotel. Parking attendants were drunk and we encountered lot of drunk people while struggling to park the car. Hotel is an old property and centrally located, its... More

Room is reasonable. We booked through 'easytobook.com' which has a very poor customer response. We were told that breakfast was included in the package, but found out it was not! Tried several times to contact the agent (easytobook) but no response. The only positive thing is that it is very centrally placed. We will not go through this agent again.... More

Very convenient location if the intent is to stay in the city. Bang opposite the Sectetariat. Decent place and accommodative. I checked in at 4:00 am and checked out at about 5:00pm and wasn't charged for the additional stay. Food is ok, however there are other options around.

I stayed at this hotel for a couple of days in April for the first time, though I had seen it many times from outside. A very old hotel but some refurbishment has been done. The ambiance as you enter is good, the rooms comfortable, clean linen & the bathroom functional. Wi-fi is available. Room service as well as the... More

It does not get anymore central than Pankaj. The once-upon-a-time excellent hotel has fallen to the vagaries of time and dearth of patrons. It's just been repainted and hence, the rooms are generally better than they ever were. The linen is neat, the bathroom basic and the waiters courteous. That does not automatically mean good service: It's not easy to... More

We stayed at the Pankaj for 2 nights in March 2014 on our way to Kovalam. The hotel advertises that it has wifi available but this is not the case - no wifi is available for guests as I have found to be the case in other hotels in India. It is advertised because it is widely known that foreign... More

This is purely a restaurant lunch review. The staff was disappointing, really didn't provide much service, and the linens were stained. The positives was that it was air conditioned, provided a well lighted view. Out of the entire buffet, only the ice cream can be recommended. It seems that more politicians come here than others and hence are the only... More
