“A Value for Money - Business Hotel”
Reviewed April 1, 2012

Located in a cosy corner in the Kaloor - Kadavanthara road, about 5 kms from the Rajiv Gandhi Indoor stadium, this business class hotel is a nice option for a traveler looking for a mid range property in Cochin.

Stayed there with colleagues on business.

Pro's
* Nice and quite Location.
* Friendly staff.
* Can negotiate for a discounted tariff and late check out's
* Nice spread for Breakfast.
* Decent sized rooms.

Con's
* Food quality average.
* Maintenance of the hotel is poor.
* Sheets and towels are worn out and torn.
* View from the rooms are not very great.
* Sleep not possible in the rooms near the banqueting area as the noise from the banquets is very audible especially if there is a late night function or if the staff are setting up the hall after 10 pm.
* Shower very badly maintained.
* No hot water in the bathrooms.

Room Tip: Stay away from the rooms near the banquets. Sleep would be disturbing.

Hopeless staff on reception.
Gave us room above kitchen exhaust.
Humming all night. Slept with earplugs.
Have to move rooms. Bathroom poor design wet floor everywhere.
Food very mediocre.
Too far from the fort.

Had an opportunity to stay overnight at the hotel, with my Family. The Hotel location was nice and rooms comfy with good ambience and service. However two things to watch out for, they rate themselves as 3 star, No pool for one, also the bathroom fixtures were not at all upto the mark.

Room Tip: Always select rooms on 2nd floor to get rid of mosquitos

Park Central is a decent hotel in Kochi. 12 Noon is the check out time. Even though it is located on the main road, it is very quite. Rooms are good and food quality is just OK. I tried south Indian food, which is just ok, when compared to the chennai standards. I don't know how the kerala food tastes like. Rooms are very clean, bathrooms are also very clean. But bathroom design is somewhat not right. We stayed in 3rd floor and water pressure is not good. Water comes out from the taps slowly. Cold and hot water mixer is also not right. Either you get too hot water or cold water. Room service we didn't try. Front office staff are good and responsive. Sleep quality is good. House keeping is good.

After a long jouney the hotel was a pleasant surprise, arriving late the staff were very good and showed us to our room promptly. The room was basic but very clean and more than adequete. Breakfast was very good and the restaurant provided excellent meals. Use of internet in reception very good.

Room Tip: Good value for money base for the city

This hotel is NOWHERE near the Fort Area, as some sources suggest.
Rooms where clean and good size, but there was an incredibly noisy hotel staff moving trolleys about at all hours, and make sure you do not get put near the conference/function room, as you will not get much sleep. Reception staff had limited knowledge of popular sights and local transport.
