excellent hotel for business and leisure - if you are not very particular to stay in a resort. very close to commercial hot spots of Ernakulam and next to Marine Drive walkway. Hotel provide a complimentary boat ride in the evenings, much safer than local boats. ask for water view rooms when you reserve. great service as you always expect... More

Awesome place to stay with family. A little costly. but cozy. Has nice ambience. Somehow, the hotel lift needs to be upgraded. Neverthless, the restaurant and its buffet spread are too good. the rooms are clean and upto mark.

Good Stay and service! The staff at the reception was friendly. The room service very prompt and the food tasty. The checkin and check out happened in a jiffy with no wait time. The room had a nice view. The room flooring was worn out and needs a refurbishment.

This hotel has treffic views of the sea and is located right on the back water. rooms are smaller compared to othe good hotels in kochi but the views make it up for this deficiency. staff is good and food is awesome. They also offer 1.5 hour free ride of the sea to the staying guests.

If I am asked to rate this property, I would say it's a moderately priced hotel at par with 4 star facilities. The property is conveniently located with waterfront, connectivity, shopping, etc. They arrange a complementary one hour boat ride in the evenings, though I did not use it. The breakfast and food was good. The employees with whom I... More
