3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2012

We booked a deluxe room and it was spacious, clean and comfortable and reasonable value for money. The restaurant was quite good. The location in Panampilly Nagar was a little out of the way and there was not much in the way of restarurants in the vicinity.

The big draw-back was the management and staff who really did not seem to care a less. The worst experience was one night when the hotel rented out the room adjoining ours for a local party. The noise was loud and relentless, it went until after 4am and we got no sleep. My pleas to the party goers to contain the noise were ignored and my pleas to the front desk were met with indifference. We were told there was nothing they could do as it was a private party and to 'just go back to sleep'!! When I asked to speak to the manager the next morning, I was told that he was not in, Nor was the assistant manager in. The desk staff were wholly uninterested in responding to our concerns. One has to ask of course what sort of hotel would ignore its guests by renting out a room for an all night party.

This is one among the good hotels in kochi. I had visited in the month of October were there was a chinese campaign going on. It is located in a very porch area of cochin. The area and atmosphere is really quite and good. Every month they will have different themes in there resurgent were in you can get that theme foods. The only drawback was that the break fast didnt had much options.

The Center Hotel (formerly Avenue Center) is located in Panampilly Nagar a posh residential area in the city. The rooms are enat and sapcious and the rates are reasonable. The food is ok nothing great to write about as there are plenty of great options in the city. However the buffet breakfast do not have much option and it is felt that the hotel is trying to just make it ritualistic. To round up you can stay there for couple days in good locale at a reasonable price.

Room Tip: Choose corner room as they are bigger

It is in a nice hotel in a nice area with a couple of shops and cafes around. It is close to major shopping areas.
Rooms are clean and spacey.
Room service is good and fast.
Staff is friendly and nice except when it comes to help organizing trips. (which they offer) Wanted their help on organizing a overnight boattrip, yet, they were not helpful at all,

All in all a good stay!
