. I had stayed here as a part of my business trip last month for a few days. I was a bit circumspect in the beginning as my stay here last year was not so pleasant. But surprisingly they have improved a lot now. Rooms have undergone refurbishment and are a lot better now. Breakfast menu was just okay. Food... More

Not the best place for family travellers, may be suitable for business travellers. Price was not cheap and not much flexible in terms of accommodating multiple members of family. Restaurant was poor and not the best service. Rooms had A/C water leaks at the entrance, though it was promptly cleaned when informed.

Not exactly befitting the word "Palace". An average hotel to spend a night when you have no other choice. We had a confirmed booking for the Malabar Palace Suite through MakeMy Trip.com and MakeMy Trip as usual after confirming the reservation regretted the booking and since we had to spend a night, had to accept a lower category suite. Can't... More

Why i am so disappointed is the amount i paid which is almost similar to a 4 star facility...but the facilities inside is terrible and pathetic. Rooms are almost 20+ years old... More

We stayed 2 nights at this hotel, where the staff do their best to preserve a crumbling edifice. Despite their charm and good work, the state of the infrastructure rears its ugly head. The lobby is massive but not air conditioned. Rooms need to be refurbished. Corridors have water leaks from the ceiling. Food was average at the breakfast buffet.... More

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!

We arrived in Kozhikode around midnight and the hotel we wanted to stay was full. So we went to Malabar Palace (54 rooms). We thought it was not so expensive for a 4*, but we understand later than it was far from a real palace. Room and beds are ok +, but the extra bed its a camp bed. The... More
