“Felt like home”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2012

We first stayed here in 2003 and now last week. The place is well kept and maintained. The apartments are well furnished and the view is breathtaking. The food and service was very good. It would be better if the kitchen was furnished with at least a microwave. Location is not ideal if you do not have your own transport.

Overall a good place for family and friends.

Room Tip: Try the top floors. The best view

2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2012

The hotel is quite far off from any markets. Its very difficult to get conveyance for going to markets. So what ever little you save on rentals is wasted in conveyance. 6 persons are accomodated in each unit of 3 bedrooms. While the bed rooms are too small even to move about, the common area is huge. no amenities are provided in the kitchen. No TV sets in rooms. No carpets. No tea bags, kettle or gas stove. No iron or shoe polish. The toiletteries are of poor quality. The food quality was average. there are private occupants of flats in the building.

Room Tip: the upper storeys for better view of water front

Very big apartments, older style, great views of backwaters of Cochin and the city. My biggest issue was the bed; it was so hard I ached the next day. After two nights I moved. The other down side is the location, although perfect if this is what you want. The surrounds are lovely but I wanted to be in walkind distance of shops etc or be able to get and auto rickshaw; from Riviera, you need a taxi or own car to get around. Breakfast was so so, and other food can fluctuate between being really yummy to filling the tummy. Certainly recommend for families as a safe park located across the lane. Large high rise compound really.

Room Tip: They are all quiet but aim to get a room with a view. I was on 6th floor and had awesome views.

Riviera Suits are conveniently located, if u get the top floors the rooms have a good view of the waterfront and the bridges to the city. The suites were posh ones but are in need for a major refurbishing. The property is neat, clean and serene compound. The breakfast spread is good(payable). What is missing in the apartment style suites are kitchen equipment although they have a big sized kitchen. The only stuff it has is a fridge, no microwave, no decent utensils. getting something warmed for ur kids may need calling the staff and sending the food away for warming. Some of the suites are quite spacious, others not so.

Room Tip: top floors.

The apartments were very good. Though the food is very good at the restaurant the service is really awful. They should have tea/coffee making facilities in the rooms.The staff at the reception were helpful.

serene and peaceful place in the interiors of kochi although easily accessible from the city. The apartments at offer are modern well furnished and clean with loads of balconies overlooking the backwaters. you cud also ask the hotel for a boat ride into the backwaters or just relax in the swimming pool

Hi viewers i along with my friends went as families and Rivera suits is one of the good hotels in cochin. The rooms are really good and spacious. Compared to the room size and ambiance in room the television is very poor. Food is really very good and are not expensive when compared with other star hotels. The hotel has facilities like swimming pool, tennis court, Indoor games but most disappointing is that we are charged separately to use all those stating that all these are not the property of Riviera suits and it is a private party properties. If this can be taken care then i think the suits is one of the best place for the amount we spend. any how we all enjoyed staying in suits and hope others also will enjoy.

Room Tip: i stayed in Fourth floor three bed room apartment type and my friends said they stayed in 12 floor a...
