The hotel location is beautiful and viewing calmness of sea . We don't how much time we spend looking at sea. Excellent location combined with fine south Indian breakfast. Really a wonder time with family here.

The Hotel Location is one of the best in Kochi. It is located in front of a Water body and has very nice view from the rooms. The service is something which needs to be improved. The average time for order completion is 60 min. The Break fast Buffet is good if you like Kerala food, some very good culinary... More

I have stayed in this property several times in it's days of glory - and so I booked the property expecting the same 'Taj Hospitality' now as well. I was terribly disappointed to see that some of the basic commitments were not kept up with. I had my extended family that was travelling along and I had set high expectations... More

Right in the heart of Ernakulam and by the sea. Most offices are about 15-20 mins. away.The service as is the norm in Taj Hotels was upto the mark. The sea facing room had a lovely view, thus making it the perfect start to the day.

New road circumvents the city and gets you to the hotel in around 40 minutes. Check in is very welcoming and smooth. Slight putt off when you enter the reception due to an omnipresent curry smell. Rooms are not large but well laid out, well equipped and very tastefully and comfortably furnished. Most importantly very clean. Balconies facing the waterway... More

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.
