“Decent Business Hotel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2014

Stayed at Pride Biznotel Emarald last month while on a business trip to Kochi. The hotel is close to the Vyttila junction but is inside a small lane. There are no major shops or malls nearby. So its pretty much a land-locked feeling. The Vyttila Mobility bus stand is pretty close by. Traveling to other south Indian locations from Kochi on road is easy.

The room is quite spacious and so is the bathroom which have been tastefully designed. The bed is quite comfortable and a good night's sleep is assured. However the bathroom needs some sort of ventilation (maybe an exhaust fan) , as it feels stuffy when you enter. The bath fittings are classy!
I did find some hair on the bed, probably from a previous customer. I had the sheets changed though. Hope they take vacuuming seriously.

Was slightly disappointed with the restaurant as there were a couple of flies near the food and tables and nothing was done to get rid of it. Saw flies on multiple days, hence it was not a one-time thing. The breakfast spread was small, but decent. Sadly the flies put me off. Their omlettes are good though!

Will probably stay here again. Hope the flies are shooed away by then!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2013

We stayed in this hotel on 21 Dec 2013. Rooms are really spacious.Smiling and helping staff one positive thing. South Indian food was also good but don't expect much from north-indian varieties.

Only negative point was slow service - may be due to rush during festive season else everything looks great.I also think that hotel needs some renovations.One confusion was created by central reservation information, they had some wrong info. While conforming our reservation on previous day, they were showing our booking at allepy instead of kochi !! But hotel had correct info and there was no issue at all.

Over all its a good hotel and I will recommend it.

Room Tip: select rooms on 3rd or 4th floor, you will get good view of city

This hotel is situated in a residential housing area. More of a hotel for businessmen. Quite a distance from the Fort Cochin & Mattancherry [where most of the tourist sites are] – depending on the traffic it will take about an hour to reach these tourist areas. However hotel is less than half an to the International Airport and about 20 minutes to the Lulu Mall – the biggest and modern shopping mall in India. Room quite spacious; bathroom not well designed - when you take bath you will also wet the toilet seat as well. Internet is chargeable. Restaurant in hotel rather cramp. Bufffet breakfast was included; not much choice of food. Staff was courteous and helpful though.

The staff of restaurant and reception desk was extremly helpful. Thanks for the peeled breakfast-apple as well as for all sightseeing-clues. The location is advantage, because quite and cosy place, and it's a disadvantage, because a distance away from main sites.

Booked the Pride hotel as part of the tour package with keralagreenery
Hotel is comfortable and welcoming with an exceptionally large bedroom (more like a suite)
Wifi available Free in the room
Hotel in a residential area near the ring road , but 35 - 40 minutes from the tourist attractions of Cochin

There are no restaurants in the Area - or I did not locate them

The onsite restraint was good value for Lunch and dinner with the staff engaging and happy to explain the menu

A good breakfast was included

NOTE - this is an alcohol free hotel
