Malabar Palace at Manuelsons for long was a landmark as the top rated hotel in the city – though recent challengers have emerged. This hotel therefore has an old feeling to it – in its aesthetics and feel. Despite its name, it is just a regular looking building, and there is little to remind you of a palace, internally or...

A recent business trip took me to Kozhikode (erstwhile Calicut) for a day…the city is located good 25 Kms. away from the airport but the drive through green pastures dotted with innumerable coconut and areca nut trees and across several picturesque channels of backwaters was truly enchanting! Our local host had booked the accommodation at Malabar Palace hotel…the hotel located... More

I have stayed in this place 10 years back with my parents. It was a great experience those days, possibly because there wasn't any competition then. But now after 10 years when I am back here. Manuelsons were not able to cope up to the new entrants in market and the dynamic needs of customers too. It would be great... More

One of the oldest luxury hotels in Calicut, this 4 star rated property has preserved its culture of warm hospitality. Warm and courteous service, spacious, very comfortable and clean rooms and superb food all contribute to create an unforgettable stay.

The Hotel is located conveniently near to the railway station and bus stand. This is a famous hotel and is one of the oldest luxury hotels in Calicut. But, it has lost the charm in this new growing era and the rooms look very old. Needs maintenance. The food is good but, not great.
