'The Coffee Shop' at the Vaidya Hotel is the perfect spot for breakfast when in Kollam. It opens early. The 'thattu dosa' with Sambar/Chutney is served hot and is one of my favourites. Egg roast and 'appam' too is delicious. You can pour yourself hot coffee or tea from the steel jugs, adding sugar cubes to your taste. Service is...

We are quite unfortunate to receive such a message from you. This is a family property we always give the best service to our clients and treat our clients as a member of our property .This you can judge from our previous reviews from your clients. I personally checked with the concerned staff and got the explanation from their side....

The rooms were average. . . Though tidy the rooms were of old style . . . The room service was pretty bad. . Called so many times but never picked up. . . Lift was so slow. . :D. . Easy access to city is the best part . . .

I stayed in this hotel for two days last week on a business trip. The rooms were big and well-maintained. The food served was also tasty. With the amount of money they charge, complimentary breakfast could easily fit in as an option. Another source of disturbance was the loud music being played outside throughout the night on the occasion of...

We stayed here for one night only as we travelled through Kerala. The room was the most expensive that we have had in India and although big, it was bare and unnecessary. For the price I would have expected to have breakfast included, wifi in the room and hot water. We got none of this. Instead wifi was only available...
