“A calm oasis in a busy city”
Reviewed May 30, 2012

My second visit here and major improvements have been made. It's nice to return to somewhere calm after navigating the busy city roads. The service offerings are much better, it has a more finished feeling. Food was excellent, catering for Indian tastes more than western but enough variety for everyone. Rooms are comfortable. If there is any criticism it's with Roma as they seem to offer stodgy bland food. It's somewhere I would come back to again.

We end our vacation in Kerala with one night stay in Cochin at Holiday Inn.
To start with the hotel is a bit away from the main city and tourist spots but if you are looking for a relaxed and comfortable stay holiday inn is the place.

The room was excellent with the hotel having good gym and swimming pool. We didn't try the lunch but had the breakfast which was tasty.

Overall i will rate the hotel excellent.

I stayed for a week along with my huge group where we took maximum inventory of the hotel.
the staff from Front office, F&B, Bel Desk and Housekeeping - all are extremely professional in their manner and yet are very freindly. language is not a barier at this hotel and food was nice as well.
the staff is extremely co-operative and flexible.
the best in services in comparison to other bigger and older hotel.
Kudos to the team who on ground make a difference from the Bell desk to front desk and room.
keep up the good work.

On my colleagues suggestion I stayed at Holiday inn, kochi from 23 to 25 Apr. The check in and check out, both were lazy. The food was worse than a roadside dhaba, the buffet spread was very stingy, terrible as per the standard of a 5 star hotel. The only consolation was room, which was spacious and comfortable. The staffs are very slow. Overall it was a forgettable stay.

Stayed here a day after they opened up in Kochi.Was accompanying my husband on his business trip.The hotel just takes you over once you step in.The ambience is "Holiday Inn ish" the typical trademark of the group across the world. Thats what makes this group of hotels special wherever you are - the ambience that they create right down to the channel music played and the room perfumes used .
Room was beautiful, food was just lovely and the staff were extremely courteous.Just that we had a very short stay.Would love to go back someday. Holiday Inn in Kochi God's Own Country - one of its kind in rainwashed beautiful surroundings!!!
