Pros: The staff was very attentive, from the second we came in someone was ready to take us up to our rooms, and complete all the check in formalities, they knew our names, and where always asking if we needed help. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The deli in the lobby was a great place to get quick food. Food at the restaurant was also excellent, especially the breakfast appam with stew. The pool was also clean and warm.
Cons: There arent any really bad things I can say about this place, except a general complaint which applies to other 5 star hotels as well. They charge you for internet use, even in their business center. Some many 3 star, and even 5 star hotels give you free wifi, or at least free internet in their business center. I think that should be a free option since you are already playing a lot of money.
Overall: I would definitely stay here again since I come to kerala to visit family, and shop. Its a calm quiet escape from the city. If you are interested in beach, and sun...then consider getting a hotel closer.

This was the second visit to Taj residency , but the feeling was as fresh and new as the first. A very warm and personalised welcome at the reception made me wonder whether they mistook me for someone else and showered on me all the attention with a mistaken identity. These people know how to pamper their guest on his arrival till he enters his room. In fact till he checks out. Pleasant and peaceful sleep is guaranteed during one's stay in this hotel.
I was told the food was delicious but missed the dinner as I had to eat at a banquet somewhere else. The complimentary breakfast was very good , but the Kerala version of idly was no match for its Tamilnadu counterpart. Ethnic dishes were spread along side north Indian and continental food and of course a variety of fruits.
The tariff appeared to be somewhat lower than usual Taj tariff.
Location of Taj residency is quite convenient in Trivandrum.

we booked this star hotel for two days stay.we booked two superior twin bed rooms for us.
they recived us with warm welcome and they processed the transactions and gave us the room keys when we are back from the coffee shop after a coffee.they made it so fast and their
dealings were nice,they took our lauggages to the room.

i have stayed in many luxaury hotels in trivandrum but the taj was tottaly different from them
the rooms were extremly clean and tidy such that we canot find not even a small bit of dirt
there.i feel the neatness is the main attraction of this hotel which is located in the middle
of trivandrum city .hte lighting arrangement was so awesome here,

the room service and laundary service was so puctual and fast.i should say about the swiming pool of this hotel or else the review wont be complete,they maintained the pool very well the food served by this hotel was so delicious and a wide variety of food stuff is avilable here.
but i felt that the airconditioning and car parcking facility is not in a level of five star hotel
and also i felt it as expensive for long stay

in total i will rate this hotel 8 out of 10
