I stayed there for two days.. They did not change my bedsheets or neither they didn't clean my room.. One night I was in the reception.. Some buglers came to the hotel and they asked me for money..I didn't give any money..so they hit me in my face.. The security didn't do anything or either they didn't called the police..

I had checked into this hotel early yesterday and found it pretty satisfactory. The place is good value for money and is placed at approximately 4km from airport. The place is at a distance of another 4 km from the city centre and 15km to kovalam or other nearby happening beaches. Food here is good...especially the traditionally made fish polliochattau....

Me and my wife wanted to stay near the Sree Chitra Institute where I am working as a doctor. So considering all the options in this area, this one is definitely one place that comes to everyone's mind. You can compare with hundreds of other hotels in the city but provided the location and convenience to travel to medical college,... More

I booked a driver from the hotel early morning and was very clear about the amount of time, destinations I wanted to visit and the finish time/drop off location. They negotiated a price and we all agreed to it. Toward the evening my driver says we need to go back to the hotel for what I thought he was saying... More

The only reason I stayed here is that I needed a place near the see chithra hospital where I had some work. They claim to be located in the "health zone" of the city, or in other words on the medical college road. It's the only decent hotel apart from a few lodges in the area. As you enter it... More

I always stay here as it is close to the hospital and convenient for my research work but the hotel has really gone down hill. The sheets are badly in need of replacement (scratchy and uncomfortable). Room cleaning no longer regularly done each day, had to ask for toilet paper, wifi used to be included is no longer include and... More

The hotel and room is good but the service of the hotel was at its worst. When I entered in the room there was no water bottle, no towels, nothing was in the mini bar. It took me three hours to get my bed sheet replaced that too after fighting at reception after 1 hours. Moreover somebody in the hotel... More
