“Good location, fine place”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 December 2011

Found Venus Hotel after a long trip and at least 10 futile tries at other places. Venus is in walking distance from the train as well as bus station and on a nice street with shops and internet cafés (well, in India, it's just the internet, no café). I took the room without looking at it and was pleasantly surprised: Clean (apart from the walls that desperately need scrubbing), a powerful fan, mosquito screens on every window, soft mattress (a big +) and good water supply. The TV has lots of channels - but only two of them international in English with not bad reception. The room was small, but I only needed the bed.
I felt safe and could relax well. The only problem is the hallway that has the acoustic of a cathedral so the music playing outside (why??), phones ringing and the overly excited group of other guests were a nuisance. But then: India without noise wouldn't be India!

Very near the railway station. (INR 20 by auto)
Decent reception. No lift.
Rooms are very average but relatively clean. Room is bigger compared to similar priced rooms in other hotels of this grade.
AC was noisy. Direct dialling will be activated on request but only few staff knows how to do it. I had to wait for an hour before it was activated.
Breakfast is complementary as long as you eat what they give plus you need to go to the restaurant.

Hotel Venus International is a place where one can stay to feel at home.
When I went there with my friends we found that the service of hotel was really appreciable.

The staff was neat and disciplined. And the cuisines that hotel provided us were too delicious to describe...

Regarding rooms they were neat and tidy and with all proper facilities....
Overall it was much pleasant stay there and I would recommend it worth a visit.....

Although, I am a native of Thiruvananthapuram, for years now I visited the place. I phone booked a Super Deluxe AC room with Venus International, as one of my friend recommended this property. When I landed, I was disappointed see it from outside as it looked very small. When I checked in, after completing all the formalities, the Front Office Manager told me that the breakfast is complimentary and the check out is 24 hours. It looked interesting. There was no lift facility, when I asked it the manager told me that my room is on the first floor itself. Still I walked all those steps and my room was on the last corner. My room number was 1 (amazing to see a single digit number for a hotel room). On entering the room, I was really surprised to see such a wonderful room with all modern amenities including cabin type bathroom. I was supposed to stay for one day only. But due to the comfort and service I got on the first day I extended my stay for another three days. The bed was very good and you get service immediately. The restaurent was however not functioning. I was told that it is under renovation. The food was tasty. I will definitely come again with my family next time.
