“Decent Hotel”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

I booked this hotel online and this was supposed to be the last stay of my Kerala Trip. The check in process was smooth but we had to wait for 30 minutes for our room as an air india flight crew was leaving before us. Once they left, we were guided to our room.

The room was neat and the bathroom was clean. The room had all amenities a 3 star hotel would have. The breakfast was amazing and lavish. The hotel arranged an airport drop on our request.

The hotel is walking distance away from the Indian Coffee House and MG Road.

The only let down was that our room was connected to a different room and the people staying there kept shouting/talking loudly till late in the night which was disturbing as we had to catch an early morning flight.

Room Tip: Dont take connecting rooms, the noise will drive you mad

Stayed here for just a day and it was booked by our travel agent. Due to my previous experiences in Trivandrum, my expectations were low. But I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the hotel. The hotel claims to be the best business class hotel in the town and I am in no position to verify such claims. However, I feel this is a very decent hotel for a 3 to 4 star hotel.

It is fairly new and still in good condition. The front office staff were knowledgeable and helpful. Couldn't comment much on food or other facilities as we had a very tight schedule and had to catch a very early flight out.

I also liked the fact that the hotel is located in a good location in the city.

Pros:
1. Decent, clean,new and well maintained hotel
2. Free wifi (that actually works)
2. Nice rooms
4, Good location
5. Near to airport

Cons:
1. Unfriendly security
2. Hotel entrance is not accessiable for the elderly and handicapped

I stayed at this property numerous times on my visit to trivandrum for business, stayed at their suite , which was pretty standard as in nothing to write home about .The bathroom was big and room were cleans and maintained ,air conditioning was a problem .Gym was standard and swimming pool was maintained .The food was okay and they had pretty much all cuisines covered .The head chef was a gem of a person and was very accommodating and the same can be said about the general manager .The staff was helpful and courteous .But one experience of being stuck in the elevator changed by whole perspective and checked out immediately .

Room Tip: Their rooms have thin walls , so if on a tight schedule recommend another property "The Keys...

We stayed at Classic Avenue twice in one month, and found it to be clean and comfortable, for a very good price. The location is quiet, yet convenient to shopping and to the train station. The included breakfast was tasty and complete, and amenities such as laundry and room service were affordable. The staff were friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay here again.

This is a decent hotel around 20 minutes from the airport. It has clean rooms, a decent restaurant and courteous staff. It offers hot water, a minibar and room service. The bed was creaking and not very comfortable. Free wifi Internet wasn't working due to issues with the ISP.

Room Tip: Don't take the rooms at the start of the lobby in the floor as everyone passes through the lobby...

Very good location, just 0.5 km from railway station. In a locality of budget hotels, stands this truly classic hotel. Classic in terms of quick Check in , big room size, nice bed comfort. cleanliness, Complimentary wifi, good complimentary breakfast. Also the location is spot on as shopping centres, beach, padmanabha swamy temple are very close by. The drawback is the speed of service especially house keeping, other wise a Truly Classic Stay.

Room Tip: Ask for a 10 - 15% discount, also the Wifi in 7th floor is very slow.
