“Fantastic experience”
Reviewed January 13, 2014

Stayed at Saj Lucia for two days. The hotel is located in the city near to the Padmanabhaswamy temple. So traveling to and from the hotel and also roaming around the city are very easy. This hotel has very courteous and professional staff. Rooms are well clean and well maintained. But, the food is a bit expensive and the breakfast we ordered was a disappointment. But there are a plenty of veg/non veg options nearby. Overall the experience was very nice for the money we paid.

Room Tip: Cleartrip had the cheapest offer for this hotel.

This hotel is not far from the Trivandrum central railways station – took about 10 min by a tuk-tuk. The famous padmanavan temple is just 50 meter away from the hotel and the airport is about 6 km. Location wise, I loved this hotel and it seems it is quite popular hotel with high flow of people. The outlook of the hotel, lobby, rooms, restaurant etc. are great. I liked the room which was big and spacious with comfortable beds, TV, writing desk, central table and chairs, wardrobes etc. The bathroom was also good with limited amenities but manageable. The food in the restaurant was tasty and the staff were cooperative and friendly. The hotel provides free internet which was a complete disaster and hopeless even after several request. Due to which I decided not to stay in the same hotel during my return- one night transit stop in Trivandrun and booked another hotel. In addition, I also find that there is no towel in room, no water in my washbasin, my mobile charger stuck in the electrical socket in the room, no hangers in room and so on, which unnecessarily killed so much of my time which I could have enjoyed exploring Trivandrum. Beside such disappointment, I still think that this hotel is good given that tariff is genuine as per their facilities and they pay attentions on all such minor details and fix every things before the guests arrival, leaving no complains at all. Please also note that there is two bars – one general and one executive lounge, which was great to have some relax time.

Room Tip: Hogh floor facing main street

I stayed at saj lucia for single night. It is very close to the famous Padmanabhaswamy Temple. Room interior was decent. They have limited food options, however the service was good. Check-in service was quick and people were friendly.

a weekend stay at Saj Luciya, Trivandrum.

A well built hotel with good facility for holiday makers. Its very close to couple of very popular temples.
Good auto/taxi service available near the hotel and its only 6-10 kms from Trivandrum central railway station.
They also have a good in-house restaurant with 3 choice menus specializing in kerala, Chinese and north indian cuisines. Must try!!!
For dinner service, they also have a live music which we thought was unique and different to other places that we have stayed in kerala. We had a good banter.

On the positive
- a very good location with near by atm/travel agency facilities
- very friendly staff, well built and good first impression

On the negative
- no internet connection, We were very disappointed. As we booked our trip through cleartrip, we were expecting internet connection as promised but that never happened
- cable tv in the room doesn't have all the channels.
- restaurant is good but we felt that it was a bit pricey. Even though on cleartrip, it was rated as a 4 star hotel but we clearly felt it was just a 3 star.
- mosquitoes can be a problem.. so watch out !
- AC can be noisy at times

Overall it was a good experience for us. We were okay with the room as it was just for 2 nights but If we were planning to stay for a week or more, then I would have skipped this place.

If we are in Trivandrum again, we would stay again at Saj Luciya provided they fix the internet.

Room Tip: Its best to research and compare it with other hotels than just going ahead and booking your room...
