4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2012

My 2.stay at Durbar Residency within 2 years. Furniture in the deluxe could be more modern, but shower and bed are good, it`s clean and very quiet for the location so close to the train-station (walking time 10 min just down the road). Well managed. There`s a Indian Coffee House next door and a good restaurant just opposite (Bimbi?) with excellent munchies for take-away. Would definetely come back.

My friend and I had booked an air-conditioned double room. The room was spacious, the beds were comfortable, and the AC was fine. Hot water was available in the morning, and the complimentary breakfast was decent. Overall, it was a very pleasant say. No complaints.

Its a nice and decent hotel in Ernakulam with 24 hrs check out time. The tariff is quite reasonable which is inclusive of breakfast. However, they do not offer any other room service as they do not have a restaurant. However, just opposite to the hotel, across the main road, there is a big food plaza where you get all sorts of food at reasonable price.They have four bedded rooms with two bathrooms which is good enough for a family.
The travel desk at Hotel is also quite reasonable and offers good service for site seeing in and around Cochin.

I had booked the deluxe single room at the hotel directly on the phone and informed them that I would be arriving at 4am. On arrival the person at reception spent twenty minutes looking at the register and said the booking was for 4pm and that only option was to stay in deluxe double room which was more expensive. As far as I am aware, in most hotels, the room does not change between single and double. Since I did not want to go out searching for another room at that time, I agreed and checked in. The room itself was clean and big. Breakfast was very limited, served in one small corner of the hotel but OK to start the day. Location of the hotel is good and overall a decent stay on a budget if you are passing through and need to spend a night.
