Centrally located with great choice for eating and shopping both inside the hotel and outside. A nice view of the city and the backwaters. Spacious and well appointed rooms, quiet and cosy. The fittings are a bit dated and need maintenance. Had some difficulty operating the light switches.

Excellent Service and Stay to remember - our recent trip to God's own country started at this Place. We had a late checkin at 2:30 AM and trust me we had a seamless journey from pickup at station till we entered our lovely water facing room. We nibbled on the 15 min promised delivery from the 24X7 room service and... More

A nice tranquil place by the sea. Very exclusive in its location and layout. Though the hotel is in centre of the busy thoroughfare there is no disturbance into the rooms. The buffet breakfast is simply awesome with a good spread and ambience.

Spend a night at the Gateway on Marine Drive, Ernakukam. Location wise, nothing to beat it. But the hotel service and maintenance was a little sad. To start with, the floor of the room my wife and I stayed appeared unswept for a while. There was a layer of dust which blackened or feet. The breakfast, though not part of... More

I have stayed in Taj groups before and found this to be ok. The partial sea view room was a good one. The location is close to some of the main attractions in Cochin like the Lulu mall, Beach etc.. 7 or 8 kms. The Chinese restaurant was great at the hotel.

Excellent property. Great ambience. Good service. Was satisfied with the services and the great in-room dining service. The location is excellent. The hotel is very clean. It is located in the center of the city and the view is great. Marine Drive is adjacent to it.

It was my second stay at the Gateway and I was totally satisfied. The Staff and service were excellent. You cant help it if they have to close their BAR at 10 PM sharp. This is the law in Kerala. If you are non-veg, you must try the Fish preparation particularly prawn or any other sea food.
