Hotel Horizon International
Ranked #17 of 25 Hotels in Guruvayur
Reviewed December 27, 2011

Most people who goto Guruvayoor (aka Guruvayur) in kerala prefer to stay for 1 or 2 days maximum, finish their pooja / offerings to Lord Krishna and go back.
They prefer a hotel with clean sheets, running hot water, with generator backup for electricity and proximity to the Temple.
This Horizon international ful fills all that. Am glad i chose it.
Benefits:
1. Clean beds and sheets
2. Split A/C instead of the usual old type Window model.
3. Affordable: i paid Rs.1600 per night for the A/C deluxe. The billing is 24 hours.
4. Always running hot water in taps. No need to ask/request hotel staff for the same.
5. The room has an attached room in the front.
6. Has television (but no premium channels).
7. Generator: This is important. Electricity is not available in this town and without a Generator to run the fans, it becomes HOT.
8. About 50 meters from temple. But it points to south nada (which is the backside of the temple).
9. Staff are extremely friendly and accomodate reasonable requests quickly.
10. Room service is available

Hotel Horizon International, Guruvayur is one of the worst hotel we have ever stayed. Based on our experience, Most unfriendly staff, dirty bathroom, Pathetic restaurant, Poor room service is the brief about this place. From the time of booking we had issues with this place. Even after calling them multiple times on different timings we failed to find a person in reception who can talk and understand english, hence we had to book the hotel through our friend who speaks malyalam.... but still to our surprise when we called few days before our date of travel, we were told that there are no bookings taken in our name and all rooms are full...... and that was highly annoying for us, as we had planned our trip with our eldery parents and finding another hotel in the last min turned to be a trouble. Hence we did multiple calls to reception again, spoke to manager Tulsidas and finally got our deluxe room confirmed.... It just doesn't stop here as we were 5 of us we had booked for an innova for pick up from station but to our surprise they had sent an ambassador...... Even at 6.30 in the morning we couldn't get hot water in the bathroom and our continuous calls with their house keeping went in vain.... Though they have a big list of items in their menu card they hardly will have few items available and even the available items will reach your table only after an hour you the place the order. Except for ghee rice and coffee their food taste was bad for all the other items we had in their restaurant. Overall we had a very bad stay in this hotel and will definitely not recommend this hotel to anyone

Dusty rooms, strong damp smell in the room and bedding (strong enough to affect asthamatic people), stains on the sofa, old discoloured towels with stains, old wall paint, no hot water, a/c working full speed all the time ...; the list of negatives is endless. If you are still reading, there is one more.

We planned to check out at 10 a.m. , which was 2.5 hours more than the checkin time previous day at 7.30 a.m. and informed the receptionist well in advance at 10 p.m. on the previous night. The receptionist did not inform us that our planned time is just half hour more than the grace time of 2 hours, for the 24 hour checkout time. When we checked out, we were shocked to see that we are being charged for an extra night. After much argument, we got meagre 15% discount.

The only postives are it is walking distance from the temple and for vegetarians, the restaurant is ok. I think Gokulam Vanamala which is even closer to the temple might be better than this place.
