1 - great location in Fort Cochin. You can't do better than this
2 - courteous and helpful staff
3 - internet is free and fast* (see below)
1 - a TON of mosquitoes. I stayed here in October, after mosquito season, and yet it was like a mosquito heaven. They need to get some All Out. You should bring some bug spray.
2 - the bathroom is quite dirty. Every time we showerd the entire bathroom got this musty moldy smell and no one could go in there for at lease 30 minutes.
3 - while the internet is free and fast, you can only access it in the lobby. This is okay, but the nightly receptionist/watchman, an 80 something year old man who doesnt speak english and who has no teeth, sleeps in the lobby and goes to bed at 9 pm every night. so you can really only use it until 9, which can be difficult if you are out all day and just get back from dinner at 8:30.
