“Central location, value for money but pathetic food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2013

Had been to trivandrum for a last minute family function. Needed a hotel near the Padmanabhaswamy temple. Voila! Saj Lucia is the best choice in terms of the location. It's just 5 minutes from the temple. The railway station, main bus stand and shopping places are very close. And the tariff won't burn a hole in your pocket. The front desk and the staff are excellent and very helpful. Rooms and bathrooms are clean and decently maintained. The only issue was the restaurant. The food and service was pathetic. We had lunch at the restaurant and had no choices in the menu. We got a veg thali after half an hour and the food was cold and stale. Street food would have been much better. Apart from that I had no problems. Definitely value for money. Would come back here definitely.

No hot water. Even worse, it took the staff more than an hour to attend to the complaint of hot water not being available...! Access card did not work. Why are they running such hotels? More so, why are such pathetic hotels listed in Cleartrip?

The hotel is located very near to Sree PadmanabhaSwamy temple. It has parking facility inside the compound. Rooms are recently renovated, clean with basic amenities. Bed quality was not that good.
They have a swimming pool which is small but good one. The hotel have two bars , one of them have great offers on all types of beverages. I didn't use the restaurant but heard from friends that the food is not that good. You have plenty of choices within few minutes walk on the main road.

The hotel is reasonably priced , you may get further discount depending on the season. Overall the experience was good.

Room Tip: Bargain directly with the hotel for a discounted rate.

Room was good with very nice BED and big TV. Bathroom looked haunted with small holes on top sealing and some noice in night (may be of big rat). Also no feedback asked by hotel. Food is expensive and breakfast is average. Would recommend to eat at restaurant just in front of luciya - food is nice and affordable there.

Good experience, courteous and very helpful staff. Food qaulity is poor and very expensive. Stay was very comfortable and nice. Easy access to city, temples and airport. We were there for less than 24 hours, and mostly outside the hotel for work. We were offered a discounted price since we checked in middle of the night, so it was worth our time and stay.

Honestly i dont want to state such a review, but we some of us are regular in Luciya bar on weekends infact would say at least for the past 5yrs atleast. Last week on Monday 17/12, we were only two of us. We didnt go for zodiac,and was served by someone whom we are fmiliar with. We had drinks and once finished, the bill came and for 8large we were charged 2400. We asked the waiter again if thats the amount and he confirmed. But when we came out and checked we are being charged Rs1000 more. The worst thing was it was a person to whom we give atleast 100 to 200 tip after our weekend session. There is a new management but waiters are the same in the bar. Pls be aware, check the bill. This has happend for many and only that day my friend told me he thought its exp in luciya. This has happened many times for us but didnt notice. our fault, but we were taken for a ride

The Worst Hotel I ever stayed. It is just like a Lodge. Only NEGATIVE things to write. Horrible Stay..Small Lift / No Toilet Papers / Used Slippers that too only one pair for a couple/ No Soap / No Drinking Water/ Intermittent ringing of phone Night time & Nobody is responsible. Executive Deluxe room loooks like a second class lodge.
