“Great Location, Good stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

I had stayed at this hotel for couple of days on my official trip. The hotel is just 300 metres from Ernakulam North railway station. The check in went like a breeze. The rooms were good, at very affordable price. The Breakfast was very good with good spread. The rooms were very neat and well maintained. The service was spot on. The only disappointment was that this hotel does not offer free wifi and the charge for the same is exorbitant(Rs 200 for 1 hr). Overall good stay.

Room Tip: Rooms in 6th Floor are the best in this hotel. Also there is a restaurant just adjacent to the hotel...

We had to stay at Cochin for a night in a family group. This hotel was suggested by Kerala Holidays. It is located very far from the Airport about 33 kms. This hotel has nothing much to offer for families except a small swimming pool located at roof top. Bathrooms are very small. Room size is ok but nothing great about it.

The service at this hotel is aweful and very terrible. As we were occupying 6 rooms, we had lots of luggage despite calling and telling the reception in person to pick our bags, nobody came for half an hour, even the manager showed no concern despite brining this to his knowledge. We had to bring our luggage down by ourselves. So be prepared to care of yourself on your own. We were very dissappointed with the service.

The breakfast is a limited spread of a combination of south and north indian but is sufficient. Service here was also a little slow but generally ok.

Overall it is fit only for business travellers who are looking for a budget accomodation. Not good for families.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

I had a conference at this hotel and stayed there for two nights in room 509. The room is not big nor small. It's clean. The bathroom is very clean but it's rather small. The hotel has a Japanese restaurant, which I didn't try. It has a good swimming pool on the top deck.

I booked this hotel using Expedia for about 2400 INR per night including breakfast.

The hotel is very close to Ernakalum North railways station (Ernakalum town station). There're a lot of hotels and restaurants in the area. It's a bit far from the shopping and tourist places. I arrived at the hotel by a prepaid taxi (510 INR) and on the way back to the airport, I was charged 850 INR by the hotel, which was acceptable for me.

i came to this hotel for our corporate annual meeting , we stayed here for two nights, i think this is probably the biggest hotel in cochin, having this much conference halls and many restaurants, we really enjoyed the meeting and DJ party all, the staffs are very nice, to my surprise there was also four other conferences were also happening at that time, occassionally I spoke to one of my old friend who came for another conference, he said they used to conduct meetings at least once in every 10 days for almost 2 years and they all found to be happy. we had a wonderful evening at City View Pub

all together a memorable experience, definitely we will make happen again here
