Reviewed December 15, 2012 via mobile

Good sized and clean room. Close to the train station and free wifi. Breakfast included and good value.I stayed her as a brief stop over so arrived late. There was a bit of a mix up at first and I had to be forthright about the booking I'd made. In the morning there was another mix up about what I'd paid for and what was owed.

The hotel is housed in a renovated very old building. The hotel originally started in 1934 and was closed for 25years and reopened in 2011. Probably they renovated at that time. Excellent food. Cramped rooms. I could find only one employee who can converse in English. If you know Malayalam and would like to be homely go there. As is normal in a communist state, the day of my return transport has gone on a strike. I (two of us) was dropped at Airport by the hotel owners car at a rate of Rs.500 for 8km (approx.) On a normal day the taxi rate is around 250 and you can even take an auto at Rs. 80. So, opportunity cost is more important than the guests comfort. The complimentary breakfast is limited to one of four south indian dishes (idly, two types of dosas) and a cup of coffee/tea.

The Kerala dishes here are authentic and tasty, try the kanji and chamanthi with payaru at night.
Rooms are spacious, but a few of them really stinks that u cant breathe. This is the second time I have faced this problem in this hotel, it is something to do with their sewerage plumbing...so instead of a long term solution they very courteously escort u to a odorless room.
Most of the rooms do not have any proper and working air conditioner. Some of the rooms have the television in a very odd angle that you cannot watch it from ur bed.
Room service is very poor

it takes more than two hours for the room service to get your order and even then after repeated calls, they fail to do so.

The rooms are not spacious and you get wi-fi only in some rooms! good luck with your stay here!

I stayed with my family for one night here. I am from South India and when a hotel charges you more than Rs. 1500 in Trivandrum, it better be good. They gave me a room (202) which was in one of the darkest corners of the hotel. The air conditioner was not working, the reception service was poor when I complained about the air conditioner. The worst thing was the stink in the toilet. The entire exhaust from the hotel kitchens were right below this room toilet. You open the toilet at any time, you were subjected to a shock wave of gobi manchurian and sambhar!!!
Did I say anything about mosquitoes?
What is the positive aspect of this hotel? The cheap and tasty food they serve, but they will bring the food all the way from the kitchen uncovered and the room attendant will not give you any plates for eating!!!

Room Tip: See the rooms first, check the toilet, check the air conditioner before accepting the room!!!

I stayed here for about 10 days, the rooms were spacious and clean. The staff very friendly and eager to help in any way needed. Good-ish location, about 10 min rickshaw from the temple. OK internet (if you're in the right rooms). Decent enough restaurant for a short stay. Not that pricey either. Would definitely return.

Room Tip: Back rooms were smaller and lots of AC noise. Rooms nearer the main road don't get the WIFI sig...
