Sealord Hotel Cochin
Ranked #17 of 30 Hotels in Ernakulam
Reviewed January 4, 2011

We stayed here for one night after getting fed up with another hotel. We were charged around 2000 rupees for a double room. The beds were uncomfortable but the room had a couch a TV and was pretty clean. I'd expect a bit more in terms of size and decoration for the price we've paid but it's good enough for a short stay. Their food is good and they have a pretty seedy (filled only with men of course) bar. The lobby is nice and spacious with English-speaking, courteous staff. There's a phone and a menu in the room but no info on how to contact the front desk or the room service. Bunch of electrical stuff was not working (outlet, lights in the bathroom.) They have a paid internet station downstairs. Overall I can't complain but don't feel that I got my money's worth. With I can give it 2.5 stars.

Anyone expecting western type conforts will be dissapointed but the hotel is very central, the retaurant is ok but the decor needs updating and the rooms are not the cleanest you will find. I found the hotel adequate for a short stay

We poorly planned our trip and the hotel photos are also misleading as it didn't look as bad as it is in reality. Especially from the outside, it is a real, scary dump.

The rooms look clean at the first sight, however the bathroom and windows are a bit dirty and run down, furniture is from 1960-ties and all in all, it is suitable for people on some serious budget. Actually, it might be expensive for them. So not sure who this hotel caters for?

Went to Kerala for my honeymoon.Sea Lord Hotel was a real value for money hotel. Plenty of shops close by for daily requirements & can experience the local lifestyles. South Indian breakfast buffet was good especially the Onion Baji & Puri.
Room was spacious & clean.The staff was always smile & very helpful.
Definitely will stay in this Hotel again if go to Cochin.

Sea Lord was a real value for money hotel. I was looking for a place to stay just for the nights as we were sightseeing during the day and this was an ideal place. Plenty of shops close by for daily requirements. Buffet breakfast in the morning was included and pretty simple and satisfactory. Spent approx 1500per night and was here for 2.
Bathrooms were not upto the mark in cleanliness but tolerable.
The carpets in the rooms were extremely bad and smelled horrible.
Try getting the rooms without carpet flooring.
Not much to say about the view as this hotel does not have any, besides buildings and terraces around. But we did not care much as we just wanted a place to sleep comfortably.
The restaurant on the first floor is well furnished, however the rooftop restaurant needs some furnishing.
Lastly the location is good as you have plenty of shopping nearby and Marine drive just a lane away.
