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

Its a good business hotel right in the heart of the city. Rooms are quite good with all rooms A/c, Service is quite good. They have 2 restaurant on the roof serving very good food. Their charges are also reasonable. Looks from outside is small, but interiors are quite good.

I have been staying at the Pankaj for several years. In spite of many new hotels having come up, I haven't found any matching Pankaj in style, comfort, unobtrusive service and very good food in downtown Trivandrum. It's perhaps the oldest star-rated hotel in the city. The hotel continues to be renovated and kept neat and functional. By avoiding expensive... More
