The rooms are of decent size, comfortable with all amenities. The house keeping is good. It is in a decent up class locality, but little interior without access to transport like auto, taxi and in the walking distance there are not many restaurants. But if own transport is available within 2 km radius there are many restaurants. It is conveniently... More

Do not venture near this place unless you want to teach your ego a few lessons. The staff do a good job on that and will gladly bash your happiness up by declining petty requests brusquely. The rooms are quite nice and the place is a pretty building - while it is located in an upmarket area, the place is... More

This is a B&B located in a spooky road with no street lights. There isn't a single shop or restaurant within walking distance and you are totally dependent on the hotel itself. The hotel itself has quite poor service and the staff do not hesitate to decline anything extra you ask for. Definitely avoidable if you ae travelling with family,... More

The place has run down on facilities and service since my last visit a year back. The bathroom flush isn't working, the basin water doesn't clear up, the wi fi isn't working, the kitchen staff are totally uncooperative. The staff has no service orientation and will not bother to return service calls. Poor stay.

I list a few below - Disrespectful owner - Horrible hospitality and the way guest is treated - Location sucks, have to walk to get to the main road. No good restaurants or shopping locations near by. Only positives - Rooms are ok - Cook is very courteous Overall verdict... More

The room has flat screen tv and has more than 200 channels, it has a mini fridge as well. The bathrooms are clean and has modern fittings. The owners are very helpful... More

It is tucked away from the hustle bustle of the metropolitan city yet so close to the city center. The laurels is located in the posh residential area of Kotturpuram very close the Govt Library and some corporate biggies home. The rooms are trendy, comfortable, spacious and though it may not look very new in the beginning but i don't... More

It is a very nice and comfortable hotel in a quiet residential area, with very clean, modern but cosy rooms. The staff are very welcoming and thoughtful, and the owner is very helpful for organizing transport,etc. The food is excellent for very reasonnable price.
