A bit of disappointment when I entered in this hotel due to poor communication of receptionist (English?). The location is only good for those who want to stay in front of Erankulam town railways stations, otherwise there is nothing that interests anyone. No good restaurants in the area, forget about BAR – you have to go far away to hunt for it. I thought that it will be easy next morning to catch train from there. However, I think it was not a right decision as even if I would stay somewhere around MG Road or Marine drive, it would take max 10 minutes to reach the Ernakulam town railways station. So, location wise, it is not recommended for any reasons at all, unless it is really offered with too low tariff, which was also the case for me and I paid around IRN 1,500/night. I was more disappointed when I noticed that internet is not working and was suggested that it will be fixed within 30 minutes, which never happened even until I left the hotel next morning. Cant’s imagine staying without internet which was always being the priority while choosing hotel and I have selected this hotel knowing that they would provide this facility. My frustration added, when the receptionist has asked me to fill an additional forms to prove/record my identity and also took a photo. The room of the hotel and bathroom was very basic. Looks like not maintained since long and looks dirty. The bathroom floor, toilet pan, wash basin all appeared dirty to me and gave some level of un-comfortness. Room has small TV with lots of channels in English, Hindi and many mores….probably this was the only good part of stay. The breakfast was okay with limited choice – toast/butter or fried bread or Idli-sambar. I took the later one which was tasty. I was more upset when I asked the receptionist whether I should go right or left to reach to the train station – he advised to go left, but it should be right. Highly Not Recommended.
