Good budget hotel. Friendly behaving staffs. Good food. Nice place to stay away from busy city rush. Lake side. Calm and quiet atmosphere. Wrong location shown, its actually near to Thykoodam over bride (NH-47).

I booked the hotel through goibibo and it was a very comfortable stay, though not up to the expectations but at par with price charged.Rooms were good Staff here were also ready for service anytime. No bad experience. Also I think it's bit out of the city so book here only if you have your own car.

The pictures in the profile aren't even remotely same as the actual rooms allotted. Terrible service. No one at reception from 5 in the evening and hotel door open throughout night with no security. Very unsafe. Extremely poor overall.

We booked this place for our 3 days conference stay in Kochi. It is a homestay, with a very helpful owner. The property was under renovation, so dont have much to comment on it. Room was decent and spacious with view of the waterway canal but the room curtains need cleaning. The problem with the hotel was its location. Due... More

If you want to spend the worst weekend ever with you family, go to this hotel. It is old, stinky, disgusting, roaches in the room and stained sheets. They claim they offer complimetary breakfast but they dont and the Manage/Owner is very rude.
