i have been there a couple of times, rooms are comparitively smaller than other hotels in its class.room service is not perfect.choice and quality of food and beverage too poor.but its good for one night stay,pricing is not good, parking area is too conjusted.house keeping and f&b team is not well trained.and its little difficult to locate..

Room Tip: upstair rooms are better than ground floor , and suit will be comfortable for family.

Had an occasion to spend two nights at this hotel, which is close to the Ernakulam South Station, on the eastern side away from the urban environs. Decent rooms, not very expensive, with a good restaurant and courteous staff. Good place to spend a couple of days.

Room Tip: Please see that all is well in the room at the time of occupying.

Great location, value for money and very helpful staff. We stayed here for one day and it was a very nice experience. Very quite location still very near to ernakulam station. The rooms and adjoining restraunt is very neat and clean. Would completely recommend it as it is very economic and provides very good service.

Best thing about this hotel is location. It is at walking distance from south Ernakulum junction.
It has nice little restaurant attached to it. If you like Kerala Food like me then you will like it. At it is everywhere in South India food is not that expensive.
Room service is rather to the slower side. Staff is helpful and cooperative. Toilet flush in our bathroom was not working and it was reapaired within day.
Now to the some of the cons. Once I was there I found out that Hotel is charging me bit on the heavier side. Taxies they arranged for me were expensive that local prevailing rate. Rate for Laundry was more than usual.
While booking they had promised me accept payment by credit card without surcharge, however at the time of checking out demanded surcharge. This is something you should be totally beware about.
To comment in a nutshell, Hotel is good but you have to look after how they are charging you.
