I think it is the best hotel in its category. The space of the room, the bathroom fixtures and cleanliness is good. This is a business hotel and is still coming up to pace with the other hotels. There are no real facilities. If you Compare the price and the requirement to stay for a night it's perfect. Where else... More

Stayed here as I couldnt get room at the usual hotel. This hotel was primarily built to get the license for the BAR it seems. BUT,the rooms are neatly maintained. The staff is only a handful, but helpful. No complimentary breakfast or water.Situated in the heart of the city. If the quality and amenities are increased a bit, this hotel... More

The hotel is in need of dedicated staff that actually want to serve. The rooms are good and a potential winner when compared to others in town; but what does bad is that there is not concern for the guest. What sort of hotel doesn't provide a shampoo in the bathroom and a bottle of water in the room!!!! The... More

Going by the the earlier reviews on Trip Advisor, this is one time I was disappointed. To begin this hotel is hardly known by the current name. It is more known by its old name 'Vembanad Hotel". We reached the hotel at around 8 am and there was hardly a soul at the reception, not even lit up, enough to... More

Standard business hotel fare; the room was clean and comfortable and had the basic amenities (a/c, TV, complimentary toiletries etc) Oddly, the fridge had been removed from the room... What lets the hotel down though is the dining options - the cafe-bar mentioned no longer exists and there is no choice for breakfast - you just get a (perfectly nice)... More

In the heart of Kottayam. Very good place to stay. New aircondition works perfect. With big, clean and quiet rooms. Hotel staff is very friendly and helpful. Breakfast (western or indian) - perfect. Good and solid hotel to spend some days.

I stayed at this hotel for two nights in January. Travelers should be aware that the pictures on trip advisor don't tell the full story. This has to be the best property in Kottayam town; it's right in the center of Kottayam next to Josco Junction. However, the property is not on the same level as what you would find... More
