The Residency Tower
Reviewed July 12, 2012

On my visit to Trivandrum this time I was booked into Residency Tower by my local office. I did not have any issues here during my previous stay so it was OK.
This time I was given a room which is usually reserved for the Indian Airlines crew, which was a blessing in disguise as I could order a set meal from the menu especially kept for the Indian Airlines crew. However, I had to call up reception for the normal menu card.
Buffet breakfast in the restaurant was very good as was dinner at The Dhaba, their rooftop restaurant. Due to my packed schedule I could not use the swimming pool.
This time I discovered a Govt. run handicrafts showroom close to this hotel where I picked up some typical Kerala trinkets at a very reasonable price.
All in all, a value for money hotel.

Room Tip: Rooms on the higher floors are better.

This is a typical business style hotel. The room was decently equipped with all basic amenities, quite clean and of a good size. We only stayed for one night, so the location was important. The hotel also boasts of a roof top pool which we didn't have time to use, but the view from the roof top is quite impressive. Generally satisfactory experience.

My stay in the hotel resulted in a pair of stolen diamond earrings.
The earrings were safely locked in a suitcase. Someone broke into the room and stole the earrings.
Apparently ,the front desk made a duplicate key to a stranger without bothering to check the ID.
I would not recommend staying in this hotel.

I have been to Trivandrum on business trip recently and stayed here. My intial impression was bad, but later it become a little better. The reception was nice though a little more welcoming from the staff wil be good.....the room they gave was stinking....i wonder ehy they do not check before allotting to a guest.....it shows their lack of responsibility.......but they changed the room ofcourse and second room was a little better........room service was alright, but the food was not good.......they offered a complimentary breakfast........which was nothing more than bread and jam........the yhave idlis ofcourse. ...other than that it was an average experince.....i would suggest you avoid this hotel if possible........

For an official trip to Trivandrum this year,I choose on this Hotel for my stay for two days.The best thing about this hotel is its Location, The another good thing about the hotel is the buffet what they serve free with the room charge....It was really good.....I liked the food and amenities of the Hotel........
Rooms are very spacious with impeccable furniture and comfort.They have provided tea/cofee makers,mini refrigerator and big LCD TV in every room

Another notable thing in this hotel is that they provide corporate discount for companies life infosys...so i used to get 20to 30 % discount

Room Tip: please take the rooms which are at the entry of the lobby

The room was very large. There was an ample choice of hot dishes at breakfast, though a wider choice of cereals would have been appreciated. The hotel seemed well-located.

By way of improvement opportunities, check-in and check-out could have been faster. And unfortunately neither of the two televisions in the room was working.

Room Tip: Our suite was very large.
