“Close to airport affordable”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2011

Ability to pay for hours needed is a great feature. The staff were helpful, booking on the internet was a bit tricky if you have an early morning arrival and only want a few hours , you need to send a follow up email to clarify your needs. Rooms not fancy but clean and airport p/u a good customer service. Aircon and fan a bit noisy.

Though airport is very close to hotel and staff are good to deal with,the beds and sheets had a damp smell that needs fixing ASAP.

The hot water was delayed for 15 mins or so in the morning before we had to leave the airport.

The breakfast was very sumptuous and a good spread

This airport was affordable, incredibly close to the airport and offers shorter term rentals (3, 6, 12 hours) in order to fly in/out of Kochi at odd times. While the room was nothing spectacular and we didn't use any of the amenities, it was clean. Just fine if you have an early/flight.

At the end of a 6 week trip in India this is exactly what I needed for my last night--had an early am flight so this eliminated the almost hour drive in from Ft. Cochin in the morning. You could almost walk to the airport from this hotel. I went down to the front desk to check out in the am and was at the airport within 5 minutes--easy. My room was more like an extended stay--kitchen, fridge, microwave, electric kettle, small living room with small tv and a larger tv in the bedroom. The bathroom was one of the few modern/Western bathrooms I had experienced within this price range during my trip: tub with shower curtain. All seemed modern and newer. Great value and I would highly recommend for the night before a flight.

Our travel arrangements made it necessary for us to stay near the airport for our final night in Kerala. There are a number of airport hotels, but only Lotus8 seems to offer hourly rates (we only needed 12 hours). Economically, this made Lotus8 the most attractive hotel. We were a bit apprehensive about having to stay in an airport hotel, but were quite impressed with this hotel. The room is actually a suite with sitting area with a television, kitchen with microwave oven and fridge (with mineral water), bedroom with television and dvd player, and a tiled bathroom. All parts of the suite were clean, comfortable and spacious.

The complimentary early morning taxi to the airport is a nice touch. We definitely will stay at Lotus8 again if/when we go back to Kerala and we have to stay near Kochi Airport.

We booked into the Lotus for our last night in Cochin in order not to have too early a start in the morning. The location is so close to the airport but so quiet too. The room was very good for an overnight stay - with sitting area, two TVs and kitchen area! We arrived late and left early but we would stay here again as the hotel was bright, clean and good value. Staff were all extremely helpful and polite and the car transfer to the airport was immediate and efficient. A good airport hotel.
