The sea-view rooms give an excellent view of the vast water bodies with ships and steamers visible throughout the day. It is easy to slip out for a stroll on the marine drive. The location is...

We stayed here for our weekend getaway. Food and staff were extremely courteous. However, rooms were very congested and cleanliness was not upto the mark for Taj. Food was extremely good with keralite delicacies. Location is perfect too, close to the city helped to move around.

Amazing experience. nice hotel and cleanliness is proper. Food is good but it has a scope of improvement. The music played was soothing. I was glad that Wi-Fi was provided without additional charges - unlike some other 5 star accommodations.

A lovely property with every conceivable amenity, including terrific food and a superb Ayurvedic Spa. However, they need to pay attention to service details: it took multiple emails to arrange airport pickup. It should take one. And upon leaving the hotel for another property near Fort Cochin, we set off....only to learn that the driver had no clue how to... More

It is a Taj hotel in marine drive Kochi with good location, service and facilities.We can have the panoramic view of the lake and harbor, if we select a sea facing room.There is a complimentary boat ride in the evening from 5 to 6:30 PM. Gateway hotel will remain my first choice to stay whenever I visit Kochi.
