I had a nice experience staying at this hotel. It could have been great if I would have not opted for spa here wherein I was assured of discount and during final settlement, I was being denied for the said discount. Otherwise, from check in to their evening cruise experience to breakfast to check out, everything was nice. I would... More

I write this review having toured from Chennai/ Madras down India's east coast and venturing north up the west coast and into Kerala and Kochi. The Gateway Hotel had just what the weary European traveller needs on a steamy hot Indian afternoon. A cool (only in temperature) reception. Very comfortable room with a port view and a substantial and extremely... More

I have stayed several times for shorter or longer periods and Gateway never makes me disappointed. The staff is wonderful and they can help you with anything. The view of the harbor and the sea is breathtaking. Two very good restaurants, one with Indian and continental cuisine and one with Chinese, Thai and Japanese food. I can recommend Gateway.

Pros: Very good location and 10mins walk from main ferry to Fort Cochin and shops. Spacious room, friendly staff. Cons; No information given during checkin relating to breakfast, hotel facilities... Coffee at breakfast was awful. I had to send back some food at breakfast as it was cold. To my surprise the sane happened during dinner. ( I pointed it... More

about 35-45 min from Airport, By the back waters. You will experience typical Taj group hospitality. Most of the rooms are facing back waters but I would choose the higher floors. As I stayed on 1st floor - Rooms 101-103 had direct view - scenic - Lots of birds in Morning. There is a marine path by the waters &... More

Had a fantastic stay. Besides its great location, it is the positive attitude of the staff which made our stay so much more enjoyable. Food at the Bubbles Cafe was very good. The personal touch made it all the more special. Absolute value for money. Dont forget to enjoy the complimentary cruise.

People are extremely friendly and very helpful whatever is the need to have a successful business trip. Food is just excellent and I advise to go for local Indian food which is the real strength of the restaurant. Clean rooms, nice view and practical to have a 2 hours boating break.

I always stay here only for the location. Compared to the amazing hotels in Cochin, this one definitely is extremely outdated. The rooms are cramped, the TVs are old, the furnishing also is very old and it looks like a very ordinary hotel from inside. The cleanliness could also go better. The service is very good (that of a Taj... More
