Taj Gateway at Cochin is an excellent place to stay for both business and leisure. They have nice restaurant with local and continental food. Their sea view rooms are awesome. Very neat and clean with smiling staff and are friendly.

I stayed in the hotel for a night. The property is overall ok. The hospitality was great, the sunset cruise was excellent. The check in and check out process were super smooth.
