Reviewed 24 January 2012

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.

My family and I stayed at the The Residency Tower for numerous nights. I do not recommend this hotel for the following reasons: 1. The AC was not functioning properly in either the initial hotel room or the replacement hotel room we were checked into (Hotel Management did not know what the problem was or seem to really care). 2. The Hotel Staff billed the floor we stayed on as non-smoking, it was clear from the smell that people were smoking in the room(s) near our room. When questioned, Hotel Staff acknowledged they do not enforce the non-smoking rules. 3. The wood floor in our room had nail heads sticking up all over the place. Hotel Staff did fix that problem promptly. 4. The pool water was green not blue. 5. The Front Desk had significant problems with handling the checkout process, which should have been uneventful. 6. The Dhaba restaurant on the 7th floor is mediocre. 7. The Hotel Staff's English is not very good. 8. The Hotel Staff is not helpful in terms of providing information on sightseeing.

During my second official trip to Trivandrum this year,I zeroed on this Hotel for my stay for two days.The strategic location apart, I liked the food and amenities of the Hotel.Rooms are very spacious with impeccable furniture.They have provided tea/cofee makers,mini refrigerator and big LCD TV in every room.The washrooms are nicely done.The cleanliness of the Hotel is superb.The Reception and ustomers' lounge is cosy with very comfortable seating.The artificial fountain,just by the side of the Reception area is really very appealing and adds to the ambience of the Hotel.The Buffet breakfast and dinners are quite palatable.

I recommend this Hotel to all those who visit Trivandrum for a memorable stay.

Room Tip: Pl occupy rooms near the elevators.
