The hotel itself doesn't look how it appears on the website. I imagined a very upmarket hotel within a posher district of shops. This was not the case. The main road is littered with dirty little shops selling cheap merchandise. The road is manic on the approach and cars, tuk tuks and cows all share the highway. This was quite an amazing experience in itself. The hotel has quite a nice entrance way and the porters are quick to get your luggage to your room. The room was very small. We had requested a triple room ( I was travelling with my two teenage sons). The third bed was eventually brought in and squeezed into a tiny space by the chairs and table. The room and bathroom was old and in need of repair. The shower was lukewarm. We had to call down to reception 3 times to get more toilet paper. Indian's use the hand held shower by the toilet. European's don't. We are given half a roll of toilet paper. When you have two teenage sons travelling with you, this is just not enough. We should not have to keep asking for basic necessities. An extra cup, glass, more tea/coffee/sugar, towels, toilet paper.... This needs to be rectified so that this hotel can live up to it's reputation of being a 4* hotel. If 3 people are travelling together, they should at least expect a room big enough to house them.
Apart from these negative aspects, the hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. The restaurants are above par. The food was the best at this hotel in all of our stay by far! Try the Indian restaurant just outside (still part of the hotel). The Mangalore(think it was spelt like this) Fish curry was to die for... They have an excellent restaurant/bar upstairs on the top floor. I am sure it is lovey in the warm, dry weather when they pull back the screens...

Room Tip: If you request a triple room and you have mixed sexes travelling, demand you get a spacious room!

I posted a review about my breakfast at Renai on the site of old Renaissance.Nice business hotel. Ample parking space . Lavish lawns inside. Multi cuisine restaurants. Chinese and the one near the lawn are really fine. A nice break point at Palarivattom , on way to Ernakulam .

On a very accessible road, good buffet at affordable rates, well stocked Bar, good bar food, the parking is huge. Getting a ride back home after a night with friends is easy as the security will help you catch an auto. the convention hall is small but adequate for family functions.
good selection of wines as well.
the chinese in Black pearl is not upto the mark . we were served grilled karimeen that was still cold on the inside. The pepper and salt prawns made up with their freshness!
