Centrally located at Jos Junction, a quite place for business traveler. Though nothing special about the place it has been a regular hotel for many business travelers to Cochin. A very Monotonous breakfast, selected, TV channels are available

I have been a repeated guest to this hotel. It is a budget hotel with adequate facilities and moderate pricing. The main attraction of this hotel is its location. It is in the heart of Ernakulam city. The hotel is easily accessible from major Railway station (Ernakulam South) and Bus depot (KSRTC). The major commercial hub, MG road is just... More

If your need is a budget stay in the center of the city, this could be the hotel for you. Getting an AC room with a complimentary breakfast for single occupancy at this rate in cochin is definitely good. The room are clean and well maintained, the only challenge being the bed, which cant accommodate a bulky guy or those... More

Durbar is a good hotel. Felt calm to see the hotel compound. The boy (room service) have a rude kibd of behavior. A/C rooms are good, neat n tidy. I liked this place. I recommend this hotel for all of you travellers.

Staff is good. Does not serve the dinner and no Tea etc. after 7 p.m. However, they will arrange dinner and Tea from outside, if you wish... More

This place is the pits. I would never stay here again. The bedding was dirty and the bathmat had black shoe prints on it so it clearly hadn't been washed or changed just turned over to hide the dirt. The first room I was allocated the toilet didn't even work so I was relocated to another room but this was... More

Recently I had been to this hotel with my family, the hotel has been booked by me directly after reading their beautiful marketing writings. Not only the Hotel is a stone throw from the station, but also the Hotel Staff is worth to throw away in the Cochin sea. You have to call at least 5 to 6 times to... More

Durbar is good old hotel for the shortet stay in kochi. With tourist centre of Kerala,this hotl promoses only the basic amenties i:e stay/ somewhat clean rooms/ nearer to city center-railways and bus stand. Pricing wise the cheapest and best. Good for budgeted stay. Double Rooms are big.
