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!.

Restaurant - Superb food. Good ambience. Worth the money. Very busy. Reasonable car park space. Well located in the city. Mini hall - Nice one. Excellent ambience. Reasonable food. Good place to conduct a function for about 100 people

Stayed here for 2 nights as we wanted to be in or around MG Road. We had visited this hotel for lunch (which was excellent) on previous holiday. The stay didn't quite match my expectation, there wasn't anything wrong but nothing special either. The room was very nice with beautiful furniture and spotlessly clean, but the service was a bit...

The Grand Hotel is located on the main road in downtown Kochi. It was built in the 1960's and has a bit of a 'retro' feel. However, this also means that while it has been well maintained it is in need of an update to bring it up to modern standards. I would rate the room and the bath to... More

I enjoyed my stay especially authentic Kerala sea food in the main restaurant. Lot of foreign tourists stay in the hotel and it has good selection of Kerala food as well as North Indian and International food. It has a good bar and a mini bar in the room. Hotel is neat and clean with friendly staff always willing to... More

The Grand Hotel proudly boasts 'since 1963' but unfortunately hasn't been updated since. The furniture and furnishings are all a bit tired now but on the plus side the rooms are big and the food in the restaurant is great and clearly extremely popular as it was packed the whole length of our stay. The location is not great as... More

We had heard so much about the food at the 'Grand'. What an awful disappointment. Firstly ,since it was a busy day , we were kept waiting for a long time. Secondly there was no system in place ..like first come first served. There was a man at the entrance who kept jotting down something..initially thought he was writing down... More

Spacious quiet rooms with a heritage touch in the furniture feels nice, however the room also had a heritage smell which was not comfortable. Furniture has not seen a paint in long time. Food was better and the location is good. Staff was helpful.

True, the Grand Hotel has some charm and is very very clean. It looks the part, the lobby is great, the rooms are enormous, the restaurant looks nice, too. The food was just ok. The personnel was very professional. Overall, a nice hotel. However, the room smelled mouldy, the a/c was weak, the hot water was on and off, and,... More
