Fortune Hotel The South Park
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 28, 2012

It is located in the very heart of the city, opposite Spencer's in M.G.Road and can easily be accessed by the Bus Stand, Railway Station and Airport.

Ambience is very ethnic and pleasing.

Service is very courteous and staff are effusive in their welcome and one is really pampered.

Rooms are very spacious, well appointed and very clean and neat.

The break fast buffet spread is very tasty with a wide variety of items, some of them really ethnic like puttu, appom etc. What is really pleasing is that the staff really cater to one's whims. Like I wanted to try some thing out of the way viz, puttu with cheru pazham and pappadom. I enquired with staff who readily arranged for the same. You rarely get such personalised service nowadays.

However the dinner buffet could be improved upon. I was there three nights and there was a very little change, the same stuff was repeated and the desert counter could definitely be spruced up with more items.

The hotel is calm and clean, stay was ok, rooms are huge. Bathrooms neat and clean. Food is average but good. Morning B/f spread is nice. Internet usage charge is huge...280/hr(inclusive of taxes). They have something in business centre for use @50/hr also. Try using this option if you do not require using net connection in room. They should educate travellers about the lighting system in the room. It seems that all the lights, A/C, TV were connected to a centralised remote control which was not to be seen easily. I had a tough time adjusting lights in night. Sometimes, the remote would work and others don't. Travel desk is good but as usual a bit costlier. They do have smoking rooms available. Overall nice stay.

Room Tip: Use Lobby Internet service which is much cheaper than room internet.

Hotel South Park was one of the best hotels in Trivandrum more than a decade back, but certainly their slackness paved the way for their declination. The rooms are spacious and very well furnished and the beds are large and tidy. The bathrooms are large with excellent bathroom fittings and are specklessly clean.
Still, things are not so comfortable, always. About two years back, the room alloted to me ( I think on the 3rd floor ) was shockingly dirty and smelly, and had an AC that was not working properly. An electrician came to check it and after cleaning the filter, assured me that it will be working fine thereafter. With hot steamy air blowing from the vent of the AC, I demanded a change of room and a lady staff came to my help and led me to another room on the other side of the corridor. Since I had changed to loungewear and was trying to be comfortable after check-in, I had my luggage opened and had my belongings placed in convenient positions in the bedroom and the bathroom. Shifting was indeed a difficult task as I had to carry all those things, all by myself one after other. The new room too was not as good as I expected.

When I stayed there last year, the room alloted to me on the fifth floor ( facing the Orthodox Syrian Cathedral ) was excellent. It had the quality, matching the reputation that I had of South Park. The interior decoration and furnishing was really great.
The complimentary breakfast is sumptuous. The food served (at room) for lunch and dinner, is good. At the open-air rooftop, the ambience is awesome, but the food served there as buffet is rather disappointing. Whatever the motive and whoever is behind it; serving Cucumber Onion Raita as 'Naughty at Forty' definitely doesn't make sense, not to mention the other names.

We chose this hotel purely for its location, right on the main road in the heart of Thiruvananthapuram. this is definitely the south park's strongest attraction, along with its very helpful staff. they were friendly, efficient and completely helpful, and worth commending. the rest of the amenities (rooms, food etc) were good, but nothing special.
Women in particular should definitely consider this hotel if they are planning to travel alone to thiruvanathapuram. the location is safe, 24 hours a day and the staff are completely professional.

I stayed after reading reviews online. This hotel is completely outdated. Rooms are in bad condition. Nothing was right.
Bad Bathrooms, Bad Bed, awful decor. I hurt myself 3 times in my stay. Very poor value for price paid.
