We really enjoyed our dinner at the Trivandrum Hotel. While we stayed at the Hilton, we were looking for something different for dinner and followed the recommendation of a shopkeeper to eat at the Trivandrum Hotel. We did not regret it. Dinner was very affordable and good.

I keep scouting for places that serve good local food and this was 1 such find. Located next to YMCA, this place reminds you of old world charm with wooden furnishing and neat decor. Some of the items I will be happy to recommend are the kappa (don't miss the green chilly-onion paste that they serve it with), the crisp... More

The hotel is very near to the Secretariat in the heart of the city. A wide variety of food is available from dosas to idiappam and veg and non veg dishes. The taste and quality of food is excellent.

The architecture of Trivandrum hotel attempts to capture the ethnic style of the region. The solid looking main door with copper hinges is part of that thought. Then there are pencil sketched panoramas of the CT, framed in unusually long format. There is also a serious attempt to offer authentic Kerala food, with trappings of tradition. Take breakfast: puttu comes... More

Nice Fish Curry Meals. The side dishes are all excellent and the rice quality is also good. Other items like Biriyani was not that impressive. Fish Fry was over priced.

This is an old hotel in centre of Trivandrum. Parking can get difficult in the morning. There is a charm of old hotel . The food was okay . A lot to go on hygiene...many tables were not cleaned for minutes...staff behaviour can also improve.
