“A hotel which should be your very last choice”
Reviewed June 8, 2013

The place is near to the railway station and to the bus stand.Thats the only positive thing I could make out. Though its in the heart of the city, its a narrow lane. Parking area is at the basement . There is absolutely no way one can park a sedan in there.May be, if you are an expert, you can try a Maruti 800 without rear view mirrors.There is an elevator which is supposed to come to the so called parking area, but it depends on the mood of the receptionist. If he is not knod enough then you have to climb up hill and a few steps to enter the narrow reception with a low ceiling.Anyway, the reservation was in order. I could not find any door man there, but they managed to find someone to take the luggage.No one told me about the complementary breakfast.I discovered it on the second day. I peeped into the restaurant to find a narrow corridor kind of place with a dirty aqaurium in there.We were provided a SUPER DELUXE room and a DELUXE ROOM. The AC did not have any controls. So I had to wake up many times to perform the act of a thermostat. I strongly believe that they are breeding mosquitoes in there. Toilets were clean, but age old.Please dont even imagine for any kind of special services, because there is hardly anyone there to help you other than the apron wearing cleaning lady staff. The towels and soaps provided were less than required.I dont think that they have washed the woollen for a decade. I decided to find another hotel for us as we had to stay for almost a week. I was pretty shocked to find out that there were much better hotels around at a lesser rate.I moved out on the third day to another hotel. Hotel Blue Nest is the highest priced hotel in that area with the poorest service among budget hotels.

Room Tip: I dont advice anyone to go to that hotel if you are left with no other choice.

At first, the location is very good, just opposite to railway station. Auto and buses are readily available from there. The staff at the reception were well mannered and well behaved. Only the elevator is outdated and small.
We found our rooms small but cozy. Furnitures and beds were well maintained. Bathroom was excellent.
Room service was also fast. We liked it very much. At ground floor it has got a restaurant which serves delicious food. My son liked the aquarium very much.

Room Tip: Try the room facing road side.

Recently I have stayed in the Blue Nest hotel along with my family on 3rd March . The hotel is pretty average, their check-in process is fast and acceptable. AC were working fine. Intercom was not working. Music in the lift was classic south music. Rooms were spacious. The hotel lobby is fine, they have an attached restaurant. Complimentary buffet Breakfast was excellent.
Location is fine bit crowded but if you wish to travel by Bus or Train than you may like the location. Blue Nest just near to railway station (If you carrying bag you could walk from station). There are nearby lots of eating joints.
The tariff is bit on a higher side. It should be below Rs1000 for A/C room. Overall pretty average experience of staying at this property. So, if you are looking for a budget hotel it may be among the best options if you able to negotiate within 1000Rs A/C rooms.

Overpriced... place is below average, non-smoking room was full of smoke smell, when complained we were offered an air freshener. Fan in the room didn't work, got it fixed after repeated complaints. Hot water didn't work, the person who was supposed to fix it never showed up. We were extra charged for pretty much everything, especially room services where we were charged for people who stayed there a week back. no apologies, simply they were entry mistakes... wouldn't go there again, wouldn't recommend anyone... the call taxi guy they referred was a cheat/fraud too. AVOID!

Room Tip: A/C room was better but better to avoid

The Arya Niwas at times used to be better property in Trivandrum, but not anymore. The hotel is pretty average, their check-in process is fast and acceptable. The hotel lobby is fine, they have an attached restaurant. I did tried idlies and offcourse their speciality south Indian Thali. Food was okay.

The rooms are fine, not great. AC were working fine. Room was spacious but not properly lit. Location is fine bit crowded but if you wish to travel by Bus or Train than you may like the location. Nearby lots of eating joints.

The tariff is bit on a higher side. Overall pretty average experience of staying at this property. About 1.5 KM you have a public library just incase you like books.

We stayed here on 29-30 march 2012. My room was full of mosquitos, cockroaches and mattesses were loose you cannot sleep whole night unintrupped.Services are very poor they delivered morning tea one hour after the order. Complementry breakfast is an unmanaged and poor effort of hotel management hence better to skip it as far as North indians are concerned.

Room Tip: Most of the ACs are old and window AC.So at the time of booking you should the ensure the working...

The AC double room was clean and quiet, but there was nothing that justified the high price. It can be your choice if you arrive late at night and have no strength to look for a better accommodation...
