This lovely old hotel which I believe has been in operation since the 1960's is in the perfect spot for exploring the city and also if you want to undertake some shopping. The rooms are very large and extremely clean and found the service to be very good. Breakfast was the usual buffet spread and was not as good as... More

Nice spacious rooms. Though old its not stale. Flip side: Electric points are unpredictable. You think its charging your phone but some time later you realize that contact was loose. You need some skill to keep it in exact contact. A light stink as you enter the room. AC keeps you comfortable but not really cold. Breakfast has limited variety.... More

Grand is right smack in the middle of the city at MG Road and is a good place to stay if you want to move around Cochin. The rooms are very spacious and clean. Service is excellent. It has a nice bar but I believe that may be closed soon as the ban on alcohol in Kerala will take effect... More

Stayed in Grand last week (Sep 12th) for a night. We had re-union of our college friends in ernakulam and chose this hotel for our overnight stay. Booked 2 rooms, a deluxe and a suite. Rooms were pretty huge and spacious, well maintained. Service is average I would say, typical feature in Kerala hospitality sector. We had dinner and breakfast... More

Good experience. But room service is very very late, will make you frustrated. Near "Marine Drive". Reception helpful. Travel Desk (Mr. Jude) is helpful. ** To Smokers - Cigarette are not available at Kochi. Take your stock or else have to pay high to arrange that.

I have also used the banquet hall for throwing parties for larger groups of more than 100 people for celebrating family occasions. I visit the bar as well as the restaurant a minimum of three times a... More

Spent two nights in Grand hotel, centrally located on MG Road and close to south railway station, rooms were clean and neat. Polite and friendly staff, they even gave me a late check-out. Restaurant is really good, authentic Keralite food, biriyani is super. I'll visit Grand next time. Also, Ole (Unisex beauty parlor) is on the same compound.

This is a review on the restaurant. Centrally located with lots of parking, it's easy to access. Grand has always been very grand starting with the door man at the main entrance. Food I must say has lost some of its shine but still pretty nice. It's when you compare it to the grand of yester years , you can... More

I recently visited for a get together held at the hotel. I had the chance to visit a party hall and taste the food (dinner) provided. The hall was neat. The food was just average. I got a strep throat after consuming the welcome drink served at the hotel. That shows the quality of the food served at this hotel.... More
