Where to stay in Thiruvananthapuram (Trivandrum)

The main accommodations in Thiruvananthapuram proper lie to the north of the main train station. Ranging from boutiques set in colonial-era buildings to side street youth hostels with dormitory-style rooms, the choice throughout the city covers a wide range. However, plenty of visitors to Thiruvananthapuram choose to stay closer to the coast instead, arranging day trips to the city itself. Nearby beach resorts, such as Varkala and Kovalam, rank high on visitors' lists, with abundances of boutique hotels, beach huts, and resorts.
