We liked our stay at the hotel - which is more of a gateway hotel - but excellent taj service. Only problem was, the aircondtitioning caused humidity to condense on the floor.

We went to trivandrum from bangalore and we were suppose to be send a pickup and we waited and waited no one came for pickup which was a part of the [room booking deal] .... later we contacted the travel agency who did us the booking and they had send their official with their car .. when we came to the hotel they said that there is no booking made were as the travel agent showed them the confirmation that they had given to the travel agent ... later they denied to give the room .. later the travel agency manager had to call the manager and fire them to give the room ... the services were pathetic ... they are actually spoiling the brand image .... TRUST ME THIS IS NOT A HOTEL FOR A BUSINESS TRAVELLER ... !!!! DONT TAKE RISK ... PLEASE KEEP AWAY FROM TAJ HOTELS ... NO STANDARDS MAINTAINED .... !!!!!

If you are looking for a hotel in Trivandrum, then I don't think you can do much better then than the Taj Residency.
The service was top notch all the time.
I arrived at the hotel at 600am for a reservation for that day. This ment that they did not have to check me in until after 300pm. But it was not a problem at all. Infact instead of making me stand at the desk while they checked men in they showed me to on of the sofas in the lobby and check me in there while serving me coffee and cookies. A great way to start the day and my stay.
The hotel is new and modern. The buffet restaurant was good and prices were reasonable for a 5 star hotel. But as at all Indian hotels even the "international" cuisine is geared to Indian tastes.
The gym is small but it has everything you would need for a work out.
The pool was great and total underused meaning I usually had the pool to myself.and in Trivandrum in April a pool is good to have. Antoher nice feature is that the pool is located in such a way that you can go from your room to the pool without having to go through any busy public areas.
If there were things the hotel could do better at it would be:
sound proofing- tha walls in the rooms seem to be very thin. If you are in your room you can hear everything ( and I mean everything) going on in the room next door.
The pool area could use more greenery. But as the pool is above the lobby there may be issues with weight in adding any new greenery to the pool area.
But these small down sides apart this is an excellent hotel and is now my hotel of choice in Trrivandrum

Hotel at the prime location right opposite to the Commissioner of Police Office in the Capital city of Kerala- Trivandrum, has however only one restaurant since its opening a year ago. The restaurant was a good joint in its early days with good food, ambience nad value for money, but now the food seems to be the same old, services tardy and the price too high for an outlet in Trivandrum.

This is a beautiful property that is in Trivandrum. The hotel is new and has some very lovely rooms. I must say that this place is value for money! The restaurants are beautiful and has a lovely bar that is quiet and very ambiant lighting. I was only not sure of its location, becuase one cannot find this property on their own in trivandrum. All in all this is a very comfortabel hotel.
