Hotel Highway Garden & Vista Rooms
Ranked #193 of 227 Hotels in Kochi (Cochin)
Reviewed February 25, 2012

I stayed at Hotel Highway Garden, Padivattom, Edapally, Kochi, during Feb 2012. The hotel is located on the highway by-pass, which makes it easy to reach without getting bogged down downtown.

The room was passable and reasonably clean. There was a good selection of eats at the minibar. The toilet was lacklusture, and plumbing, while being functional, seemed to be poor (for example, the direction of hot water is not indicated on the tap, and the force of water was weak on the 2nd floor, where I stayed). The room service was not available (no one was picking up the phone) in the evening, and the reception was not helpful.

The food delivered for dinner, however, was quite poor in my opinion. It was overly spicy and poorly cooked (I had lamb). The breakfast (complimentary) was quite terrible--there was no buffet and the only choice was poorly done idlis (a south Indian rice-lentil cake) and puri/bhaji (a fried wheatbread from north India). I could hear the other guest grumble about the food too.

The lobby is not airconditioned, which makes it a poor place to wait for guests. There is no lift, and luggage has to be lugged up the stairs.

Overall, although a well-known location for outdoor parties and receptions, this hotel is quite poor in every way except the location.

Room Tip: First floor rooms seem to be better maintained than second floor rooms.place

This is decent size hotel on bypass road and around 22 Kms from airport. I stayed here for 1 night, room size is good but there was some kind of smell in the room , I didn't had any kind of food over there other than cmpltry breakfast, which was ok.Price wise, its lil expensive , I paid 2800/- for a double room (Incl Tax), which I feel is lil higher for this place.Over all if you are not getting any other deal you can go for this one.

Great stay. I and my friends stayed in this Hotel for a night. It was a great stay. The rooms were neat. We were not able to get the suite room. But even then the room which was given to us was like suite rooms.
