“Great location...poorly maintained”
Reviewed February 3, 2014

The advantage of staying at Chaithram is that one can walk to the bus station, railway station, East Coast Road, Padmanabha Swamy temple....etc.....the ktdc information office is right next to the hotel if you wish to go for organised sight-seeing trips in and around Trivandrum....we took a bus to Kovalam and Varkala....AC Volvo buses run by the govt. are very comfortable...
The rooms at the hotel are spacious but not maintained properly...there are cockroaches and ants around the room so no eatables should be left in the open...the breakfast and lunch buffet were good....if the management makes some repairs and cleans up the rooms properly, it will be a good place to stay at....

Room Tip: Please book A/C rooms ....its mighty hot in Trivandrum...

Chathram Hotel is excellently located opposite to the railway station & bus station.
Bar is poorly lit & looks like an ancient dingy liquor joint.
Food options in the bar is limited with poor service.

Stayed for one night in December last year. Room is small, very basic, curtains are dirty, torn. Buffet breakfast is again very simple. Only thing positive is that the hotel is very near by the Trivandrum Rly station. You can just walk down the street to reach the hotel. Dinner was somewhat ok nothing special. Overall not worth the price you are paying.

The only good thing is the hotel location - right opposite Trivandrum Central Railway station. Apart from that, the hotel is average to poor. Rooms were not clean, staff hardly understood any English or Hindi, room service was poor. We asked for bath towels and a bottle of water in the evening. To our surprise, they delivered it to another room and weren't apologetic when told about their mistake.

U can find more mosquito than guest in the restaurant. Worst food I ever had. Noisy surrounding even at night. Crowded area as the bus stand and theater are near by. Good for bachelor stay............
