We ended up staying 3 nights here and it was very good throughout. The rooms are well maintained and surprisingly quiet. There is a handy little gym on the top floor and the staff can arrange most things. (Beware of their advice, its not always accurate.) The best thing about the place is the restaurant. The menu is quite extensive... More

We stayed here on the 27th of December 2011. We spoked to the hotel twice that morning to confirm our arrival a day earlier than intended for 1 night. We arrived at 8pm and our room wasn't ready. We were left waiting over an hour at reception but kept being told "a few more minutes". We had booked a twin... More

Beautiful building kept in impeccable shape. The staff is friendly and not pushy (for tips - a common nuisance in Indian hotels). The position of the AC was a bit unfortunate. If it's on, the draft goes directly to your bed. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

a very good hotel, excellent location wise, walking distance from the railway station (10-12 mins). rooms are very clean with all of them having very good bathroom and shower facilities. even the cheapest rooms have flat-screen tvs. provides for a free buffet breakfast which is good. however it is wise not to eat lunch or dinner in their restaurant as...

The location of this hotel makes it difficult for the new comers to reach. Situated in the mid bazaar parking is one of the big problem the visitors might face. The ambience is good and the cleanliness and hygiene standards are well maintained too but the food seems a costly affair more even if you are dining with a big... More

You will not find a better hotel for this price, not only in Kollam but also in the rest of India. This is truly a boutique hotel, the rooms are beautiful and very quiet, the lobby is very nicely furnished with art pieces and there is a reading/meeting room in each floor. If there is one drawback is the restaurant:... More

If you are looking for a good hotel in Kollam for one or two nights then look no further. After looking at a couple of other hotels we found our wy to the Nani and what a revelation. As we only wanted a non A/C room the rate including breakfast was the lowest anywhere. The room was small but very... More

Our room was nicely finished & functional, excellent ac, flat screen tv, a minibar (clean aswell!) & in-room safe was a bonus. The bed was super comfy with soft sheets & great pillows. However the hotel is extremely noisy! Between other guests & staff going up & down the corridor, to a phone constantly ringing at the end of the... More

I stayed here in Feb 2010. Some friends and I were backpacking through Kerala and thought this place looked good (guided by the Lonely Planet). We struck gold with this place since compared to the extreme craziness of the outside street, this hotel was an oasis of calm and cleanliness. Whats more it was extremely cheap to stay in too!...
