This was my second visit to this hotel. During my recent visit from 10th May to 13th May 2015, we stayed in a Sea view room. Location of the hotel is great. It's just next to the sea and moment you step out of the hotel and you will feel the gust of easterly breeze on your face. It's on... More

We stayed at the Promenade recently for 2 nights. The best part about the hotel is its Location. It is right next to the Gandhi statue and french memorial in the heart of the French colony. The rooms are clean. It was quite expensive though, but worth the money if you want to spend more time in the French colony... More

I stayed with my wife and daughter at this hotel. Staff and service is awesome. I loved buffet breakfast a lot...Beach is right across the road and we had a room facing the indian ocean... There are so many places near this hotel where one can enjoy local food. I would recommend this hotel to everyone.
