Very rude front office staff! I had made the hotel reservation thru Make My Trip and paid in advance. At check-in, I just asked for a room with a balcony. The front office staff especially a "Manager" named Sandy flatly refused to give us such a room. Instead he gave us a dingy room on the 3rd floor. Avoid this... More

Dear Mr.Vinod Viswanath, Thank you for taking time to review our hotel. I would like to point out that the reason we offered you a standard room was because your booking via make my trip .com (ID NH 210615753755) was for a standard double room with an extra bed and not for EXECUTIVE ROOM WITH BALCONY. We don’t offer free... More

Located amidst the city hustle yet isolated from the crowd, Malabar palace provides guests with unique service and pleasant stay. Rooms are well maintained keeping in mind the immediate needs of travellers. Restaurant has unique ambience and is among the best choices for fine dining in the city. Complimentary breakfast is served here and the menu was wonderful.

Hotel Malabar Palace is the first star hotel in Malabar region of Kerala. It is the first means it is the oldest. The Carpets and bed sheets are so very old. Room Service is average. Not well furnished and not well maintained. If you have any better option avoid this one.

Hotel Malabar Palace is centrally placed in Calicut city. The access is easy and enough parking lots. Rooms are reasonable but with old carpets. Room utilities and toiletries are just for name sake. We had only one tea bag, one milk and coffee sachet for a double occupancy room. Buffet lunch was good, not much ala carte choices. Service was... More
