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.

It is a good hotel about 35 Km. from Kochi Airport, but near to a big Market and other amenities. Rooms are good, neat and tidy.. Prices are reasonable with good complimentary breakfast. 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.

Hotel Darbar residency is in a nice location off Jos junction with ample car parking too.But the staff are really discourteous & donot bother about customer service. The room boys fleece gullible guests for any food orders by overcharging(almost 2-3 times the actual cost). Rooms & toilets are not maintained well.There are better value for money hotels nearby. Please avoid!!

The first experience on 26.10.2013 at Cochin was the worst. As the package in Hotel, Durbar Residency, Cochin included Breakfast, Lunch or Dinner and its payment was done by me in advance to makemytrip.com. Yet, the hotel staff and officials at the reception desk refused to oblige my family to provide dinner with the logic that they do not have... More
