“Decent Business Hotel”
Reviewed March 6, 2014

Loved the soft and hard pillow choices, attention to detail in designing the rooms for business use. I checked in on my birthday and me being an IHG member, the chef sent a complimentary and surprise dessert to my room!
The breakfast area was well lit and the spread was good. Had some problems with flies due to the door to open dining area not being shut properly and once I notified the manager, he took care of it immediately.

Not located in central old Kochi, but much better to avoid traffic jams
Very professional front desk staff and Laundry manager.
EXCELLENT bedding ever, well above many other 5 star hotels in India.
Delicious food at either dinner or breakfast, compliments to chef Michael.
Very nice gym.. but honestly some efforts need to be made around the pool area that could be cleaner.

Room Tip: Best rooms are the large corner deluxe rooms, better than a suite.

Generally, this is a class act. Very clean, slick and western. The room was modern and ergonomically pleasant. Very expensive wi-fi. I was very disappointed that the operator of the hotel could not help me when I needed to make a person-to-person call to the US. She was quite unpleasant and I incurred charges due to her persistent errors. Fortunately, the morning desk clerk was very friendly and eliminated the charges.

This hotel doesn't have a spa. Good location, the staff always greet you in the reception area, they are also very knowledgable for information and advice of local area and places of interest. The Executive suites rooms are extremely lovely with extra living room. the Delux rooms are standard. supermarket and rishaw are 150 metres on left of hotel

Room Tip: Executive suites rooms are best if you can afford it. Higher floor will reduce car noise level.

We stayed one night on our way to Allepey. It's a very nice, clean, modern hotel conveniently located on the main highway. Our room was quiet and comfortable. Only problem was it was Valentine's Day and the restaurant only had a special (elaborate) menu. The only other dinner option was room service. Good front desk, coffee shop and sports bar.

I am very much satisfied with the service, staff was so friendly and well mannered.
Only problem was Mosquito's out side the hotel lobby and also in the restaurant. ( Try to solve the fly problem, its dangerous to all.
