A nice hotel very near to the cochin airport, they provide free airport transfers as well. Rooms were spacious, got a free upgrade as well.


Check in and check out was a breeze, Complimentary breakfast had a good spread. Beds and the controls near em was a nice touch. Balcony was spacious but lacked privacy.

Overall a thumbs up!

Room Tip: Balconies are bigger but only separated by grills. No privacy in any of the balconies.

Mixed feelings is what I have of this hotel.. first it was the way how we had to ask for practically everything especially at midnight including asking them to switch on the lights along the walkway between floors.. We booked 2 rooms and one of the rooms given had a dusty or mouldy smell -- not sure why and since we were there only for the night -- we simply mentioned and left it at that. But what was annoying was how we had to keep on asking for almost everything and credit must be given to the housekeeping staff who went back and forth getting the things. The fact that all these items could have been left in the room would have been easier for both parties since it was well after midnight when we checked in. Our online booking was done early enough for them to prepare the room ahead so cannot understand this lack of preparedness.

Next we also did not understand why they switched off lights in the connecting corridor between floors as it is easy to trip and hurt oneself as we walk in darkness. Overall the stay was ok and staff serving the housekeeping and the reception section were polite and helpful.

Room Tip: Unable to do so as we checked out the very next day so not sure where the good rooms are.

Stayed the 14th of Feb. We had our tour agency move us from the heart of Cochi to the airport for our early flight out. The hotel looks like an upscale American one with (to me) great modern furniture and a lovely indoor slab wall fountain. The room was quite nice as was the all-tile bathroom. I can't speak to the buffet (usually a big deal for me) because we left before it was open. They did call and ask what we wanted in our room or to pack for us. Very nice service there. We took simple sandwiches and eat some milk and cereal in our room.

Nothing outside except the airport. We did walk through their dining area and it was good looking like a fancy restaurant.

Unfortunately, it was the only place in our almost 3 weeks in India that charged for wifi. Other spots either didn't have it ( one of the Wildlife Preserves) or it was free. Not aways fast or strong, but free. I don't know the rate because I didn't use it. My picture uploading for my family had to wait.

We stayed here at the beginning and end of our trip to Kerala, due to early morning flights. The Flora is a great hotel for this purpose: it's nothing special, but it is well-priced, clean, very close to the airport and provides free airport transfers. Our room was comfortable, with a fridge, tea/coffee facilities, LCD TV and wifi - but had no opening windows, so was a little stuffy/musty - ok for a short stay. Both breakfast and room-service dinner were good and reasonably priced.

Our rating for this hotel is a based on the fact that it is an airport hotel, you wouldn't stay there to visit kochi. Having said that as an airport hotel it is excellent.

Firstly the rooms were very comfortable & quite large with a good seating area with a useful table. The beds were also very good & comfortable with quality linen & pillows. We asked for a hairdryer which they happily brought. The service is a bit patchy but on the whole good.

A real bonus was with large flatscreen tv which has a number of free english movie channels (you may have to search around for these in the menu section).

I has a nice pool which we used & my wife had a massage from the girl in the spa which she recommended & she doesn't often do that.

the food is ok, not great, we had the buffet in the evening at about 400rupees ok value. The included breakfast was ok also, they will make you special requests e.g. eggs or dosa at no cost but charge 50 rupees for bottled water (strangely cheaper from the room mini bar - a first)

Now coming to the wifi. This is almost equal to bed comfort to us in importance. They do have continuing problems with this, in fact the first room we were given, 216 which was right at the back had virtually no signal, as you walked closer to reception the wifi improved out of sight. We complained & they moved us to 108 which had good wifi. So check out the signal before unpacking!

In november we stayed at the courtyard marriott nearby & whilst that was quite good this was for us better & somewhat cheaper.

Also they do a day room for around 2400rupees (about $40US?) for 6 hours & they pickup from & deliver you to airport.

Located a convenient 400 meters from the Kochi airport it is a fairly good small hotel. The premises are rather good- the rooms are large and well furnished. The rooftop swimming pool, spa and gym are quite nice. The wifi is poor and erratic. The mattresses are far too soft for comfort.
What is lacking in the hotel is service. Barring maybe housekeeping, the service is pathetic. And what is worse is the indifferent attitude of most staff especially those at the front desk and in the restaurant.
The restaurant menu is rather limited & repetitive and at best good for one meal. The dessert spread is quite good though - my complements to the pastry chef.
I'd recommend the hotel if you want to spend only just a night there.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for the time and feedback on Tripadvisor

Please accept my sincere apologies for the inconvenience on your stay. I have done an investigation based on your comments and understood that you stayed with us as a crew member and the crew entitlements are explained upon check in, but intact the room service was not included in the entitlement and the same will be on chargeable basis. Also noted the comments about the wifi and desserts and we were having some issues on the particular period for wi fi and that rectified already. We look forward to welcoming you back in Flora Airport Hotel.

I stayed in the hotel in 2014 Jan 30 and 31. The rooms as very hot, air conditioner makes only noise and never loos the room.
Reception is so poor that you have to wait the the girl behind the counter till she finishes her mobile chat. Too bad.

Room Tip: Never accept a room in the second floor.
