“Is that your idea of a luxury room?”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2013

Average location. Bad relationship price-quality. Your fare was overpriced. Taxi to the airport (three minutes) 550 IRP! Guess 50% was hotel commission! I don't like your getting the money right away, before check in. What if I need to cancel the booking for some reason? Never again.

I request and advise all travellers opting for Hotel Chaitram to think a million times before selecting this hotel. I feel for the discounts offered by Clear Trip but little did I know that the management at the Hotel have instructed their staff not to offer any "service" to travellers coming through Clear Trip !! I had booked 1 AC Deluxe for my aged parents and informed the hotel reception about making provision for Hot water to drink and warm water for bathing purpose. But despite several request by my parents, the same was not provided and one of the staff was " kind" enough to say that they serve only full paying guests!!!!

If you plan to book through Clear Trip and fall for discounts be prepared for calling your holiday "Compromise Trip". Compromise Trip is a sister concern of Clear Trip enticing middle class ( Or Cattle Class, as described by Sashi Tharoor of God's Own Country!) people like my family depriving of that little joys we aspire for!

KTDC stands for Killing The Dreams of Customers!

This may be passed of as a small issue but I am making it big because it is a simple thing that the hotel could have provided!

Water Water Everywhere, But in God's Own Country , There is not a DROP TO DRINK !!!

I've stayed there for 4 nights with my wife and 2 year old kid. On request and on availability they have provided us an quite room which was away from main road facing.

Let me tell you about negative things which i faced.

3 night it was quite, but 1 night near by some kind of construction work was started, so kind of heavy sound started at night around 9-10 pm or so for few hours. There was some mosquito's in the room, and failed to sleep as my 2 year old kid got sleepless nights.. i think mosquito's entered from the rusted window which was not ready to get closed properly.

Now positive things...

Hotel chaitram is located just opposite Trivandrum central railway's Platform No 1. Hotel served us nice south Indian type of breakfast also includes juice, corn flakes, milk, toasted bread, jam etc which starts from 7 am and ends at 10 am. Hotel's reception was too big i think around 1200 to 2000 sq feet area! Even our room was big (attached snaps check them) Great service by house keeping staffs.

Room Tip: Take mosquitoes repellent with you. Ask for room which is away from main road facing.

As Kerala is pretty expensive state and all the hotels are pretty costly Hotel Chaithram at Trivandrum belongs to KTDC, it is a budget hotel but low in maintenance and also food is very bad so for staying purpose it is fine if your budget is low but for having food in the hotel is pathetic, morning breakfast is fine but having full meals are not a good idea the only best thing is that this hotel is only 1/2 km away from Railway station.
