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.

We enjoyed our 1 night stay here and were pleasantly surprised (had very low expectations since it is the low end Taj brand) with the excellent value and impeccable service that we received all through. Pros: 1. Complimentary welcome drink, in room fruit basket + cookie & chocolate basket on arrival, sunset cruise, biotique bathroom amenities. 2. Despite its dated... More

Our first time to Ernakulam, Kochi and we were so welcomed by the staff of The Gateway Hotel. Namely Sarath, who checked us in and had the biggest, friendliest smile so far on our India journey. Sarath has gone way beyond his duties in making us as comfortable as possible. He has helped us with booking of tours and also... More

It's a good old star hotel in Marine Drive with sea facing rooms. But once you look at the size of the room, you will be shocked. Never seen such a small room for an Executive Class. Price paid was too much for the room. House Keeping never bother to check whether everything is in order. No in-room dining Menu.... More

Room was clean with all facilities and beautiful Sea view. Nice boardwalk for your morning and evening walks. Buffet was wonderful especially loved the smoothie/juice bar and salad bar. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Enjoyed the sunset cruise and the guide made the cruise interesting by providing good information about the ships, Wellington island, and vicinity.

My husband and I had decided to travel like the locals, so the location of this hotel was ideal for us. Just a few minutes' walk from the hotel is the jetty, from where you take the ferry to all the touristy places like Fort Kochi and Matancherry. We particularly enjoyed our visits to their coffee shop Bubbles, which offers... More
