Decided to treat ourselves to a 5 star hotel to end our holiday and went for the Gateway being close to the center of Ernakulam. However this place is a complete money taking establishment, the rooms are pretty expensive relative to India yet the restaurants there are overpriced, charging 95 rupees plus tax for a bottel of water!!! You have to pay for internet 150 rupees plus tax for 30 mins!!! Our room was Okay, however certainly not to the standard you would expect of a high star hotel. The staff are friendly enough, however you feel they just want to be tipped all the time. I would stay there again but just be mindful that there are good eateries just minutes away on foot from the hotel. Lastly the facilities are okay at best, the pool is nothing special nor are the steam room and gym etc. They do give you 1 thing for free, that is a fruit juice when you arrive and i advise you to drink it all as everything else you'll be paying through the nose for!!!!
