Run by KTDC ( Kerala State Tourism Development Corporation ), it is in a good location for any traveller who wants easy access to the Central Railway Station and Transport bus stand.
The rooms are large, but with no maintenance or cleaning, (hope they change the bedsheets) it is totally in a bad shape.
Considering the low tariff rates and the importance of it's location it would be a nice choice for a tourist who visit Trivandrum to see the places of importance like Padmanabhaswamy temple and Kuthiramalika palace. The reception desk of KTDC that adjoins the hotel helps arrange sightseeing tours and they even conatct your room and inform you when the vehicle is ready for pick up.
Breakfast is complimentary, but the buffet service is poor. All other food that you have to pay are over priced.

I happened to stay here in Premium room. Found very old styled furntiures and lousy accessories, Expose electrical wirings, Shaky tables and chairs.
Bad receptionist, no mood to help me take a printout of my Journey ticket from my pendive.
I had remind them 4 times to get my dress given for laundry.Stil they did not give and while checking out the room at early morning 5.30 I asked him for the laundry. He was showing his negligence of not delivering the laundry.
Pathetic breakfast in the state capital of Kerala.
Not a choice to stay , if you are plannning to have memorable time in trivandrum.Absolute No.no. to this Hotel.

The most ideal place for a traveller who wants easy access to the bus stand, railway station and the airport!!! Ideally located. The rooms are decent and comfortable. They are not spacious but are definitely more than enough to get you a good nights sleep. would recommend not to order food from room service or even venture into the restaurant unless you are a beef lover ( which i am not ):P.

Government run , part of the KTDC group. Older building but very convenient for the train and bus station. No frills, clean and OK service with good size rooms. Plumbing a lot to be desired but OK once it has been explained by the helpful staff. Good Indian style buffet restaurant for every meal with strict opening hours.Good value and some times exceptional food Must get a coupon every morning to get your inclusive breakfast. Room service efficient.Love the bar and the food there which is different from the restaurant.24 hour checkout

All in all good value

Room Tip: all the rooms are much the same, all could do with up dating. Rooms over looking the bus station are the quietest.

Chaitram TTDC hotel is just adjascent to Thampanoor busstand and opposite Trivandrum railway station. Very convenient for families. Has decent buffet available in the hotel. In addition famous Padmanabhaswamy temple is just 1.5 Kms away. Rooms are of moderate size, and cleanliness in the rooms can be better. Value for money hotel.
