I have visited Cochin several times, but had the opportunity to stay in Grand just this trip. I loved the rooms. They are well maintained and large. But the hotel needs additional electrical plug points and ones that work. Loved the food too. The staff are pleasant and courteous. I have one huge complaint though. Last night 21st May, 2015...

Very good Kerala Food with authentic taste.Good courteous staff and efficient service. It would have been good if there was a Buffet service with unlimited food and some more varieties of desserts & sweets.

Grand hotel is your average business hotel with not a great service. I have been to this hotel few times but never had a staff smile nor keen on greeting. The rooms are decent but over priced for the quality they offer. No place for any leisure activities inside the hotel. The restaurant is good, They serve all types of... More

One of the oldest hotel in Cochin. Rooms are renovated and good. Very spacious room , clean and neat. Bed was comfortable. Food was very good. Bang on MG road this is a class hotel for staying with family. Huge parking place is available. Restaurant is crowded on week ends.

Let us face it. The expectations from a hotel should always have a relationship with the price we pay. From that point of view for a hotel that gives room at less than Indian Rupees 3,000 we cannot spect anything more. Rooms are ok. Cleanliness of the public areas in the hotel not good. Corridors quite smelly. The light switches... More

My major problem staying in The Grand hotel was difficulty travelling to major tourist attractions . This requires walking from the hotel to catch the ferry over to the other side taking at least half and hour plus depending on wait time for the ferry. I was not confident to do this at night, a taxi journey is long which... More

We stopped here on the first couple of nights of our trip to Southern India with Exodus Travel. This was probably the best hotel we stopped in during the whole trip. Massive rooms with decent air conditioning, relativly soft beds (for India) and a fully functional bathroom with decent facilities. the only down side was that my wifes hair dryer... More

The restaurant is in the ground floor and serves vegetarian, non vegetarian meal or Appam with stew( veg & non... More

We stopped here for a night en route to Fort Kochi on recommendation from a popular guidebook, we were not disappointed at all!. Lovely spacious rooms, tasteful 30's decor and one of the best restaurants in Ernaukulum. The BnB option yields a great breakfast buffet and the location is walkable, even with luggage, to the relevant local ferries. Highly recommended!.
