This place is close to MG Road and Ernakulam station. A simple and neat place. Rooms are large. There are no dining options in the restaurant but they have a simple complimentary breakfast. Fits the budget. A decent place for the family.

I would recommend Durbar Residency to the frequent office/domestic travellers looking for the comfort of staying with in the city/well connected to all the travel modes including rail/road. The hotel is clean and services are okay

Centrally located at Jos Junction, a quite place for business traveler. Though nothing special about the place it has been a regular hotel for many business travelers to Cochin. A very Monotonous breakfast, selected, TV channels are available

It is in the heart of Ernakulam city. The hotel is easily accessible from major Railway station (Ernakulam South) and Bus depot (KSRTC). The major commercial hub, MG road is just... More

If your need is a budget stay in the center of the city, this could be the hotel for you. Getting an AC room with a complimentary breakfast for single occupancy at this rate in cochin is definitely good. The room are clean and well maintained, the only challenge being the bed, which cant accommodate a bulky guy or those... More

Durbar is a good hotel. Felt calm to see the hotel compound. The boy (room service) have a rude kibd of behavior. A/C rooms are good, neat n tidy. I liked this place. I recommend this hotel for all of you travellers.

This place is the pits. I would never stay here again. The bedding was dirty and the bathmat had black shoe prints on it so it clearly hadn't been washed or changed just turned over to hide the dirt.
