Stayed here with my family for 2 days. The rooms were clean and well maintained but the bathrooms taps were a leaky and the shower was not working properly, so upon our request they transferred us into a different room which was good. The complimentary breakfast portions were too small and options were very limited. Overall, it's decent.

A good place to stay if you have to move around the OMR. Nice staff who were caring and checked if I needed break fast late in the morning after I came back which you don't get to see in other places. I wouldn't mind staying there on my next visit.

Worst Internet Ever....very poor speed. 3. Only South Indian Channels in T.V. Only 4 Hindi Channels those are like music channels and star utsav and one news channel. 4. No tea/coffee maker in room... More

Hotel is not that big, quite decent hotel and decent rates. Rooms are nice and they maintain proper hygiene and cleanliness. I took this hotel for by business visit as it was near to the office. I will say that it's value for money.

I was on a business trip, and chose this place as it was very close to my workplace. To start with it's not a hotel, rather a "poorly" serviced apartment kind. I spend 30mins to find this place. The room size is very small (something like 10x10). The place is stinky, AC's are not good, food is pathetic, bathrooms are... More

"We had a marvelous stay in THE HIVE Hotel. Wonderful interiors, very good service, very reasonably priced too for a luxury hotel. My advise is to put a Name Board for people to locate easily and to add more varieties in the food.

What I liked about this place is the cleanliness. The person in charge is very friendly and helpful. They could do with some trained staff. Breakfast is good. The location suited me as it was very close to my place of work. Chandrika Raghu
