“Beware...you might get locked in the bathroom!”
Reviewed February 19, 2014

The hotel is an average one with full of idiotic staffs. The ACs in the room are very weak ones and you need to keep them running the whole day if you want your room to cool. We had to change 3 rooms-either their AC wouldn't work or the bathroom latch would be missing! In the last one, I got locked in the bathroom! When I tried to open the door, the bathroom handle broke off and was in my hands. Had to shout for 15 mins before a cleaner came to my rescue. Worse, when we raised the complaint, they sent a guy to fix the door after almost 2 days(when we were leaving)! They also charged us Rs.500 per hr for Shikara boat rides where in other placed it was only Rs.350 per hr. Fun Fact: The TV in the rooms have no Hindi or English channels! Only Malayalam! Restaurent food was average. The idiotic reception guy is difficult to deal with. Keeps on laughing whenever you complain about anything! Bad experience! Definitely not going back there! :|

Room Tip: Please check if everything in your room works before handing it over to a guest! And when your guest...

I had a good time at this resort. Ambiance was great and the location is very near to the canal and hence convenient for out door activities such as boating. Food was very good and was custom made to my requests in most cases. Great value for money compared to other resorts in this area

Room Tip: try to book in advance

Clean and tidy rooms with a nice balcony. Tasty restaurant and helpful staff. Alexander organized my houseboat tour and even got me an adapter to ensure I could charge my camera for my trip. The hotel is in the most ideal location. Walking distance to the finishing point and short auto ride to the beach.

Room Tip: The upper floors are best

I had been to Sisir palace and stayed for day .This happend on new year and you can imagine how irritated I was . The manager was not at all friendly and rooms were ok. The pillow cover and bed sheets were very untidy. On requesting them several times , they finally did and still the pillow covers and bed sheets beauty remained the same.

The only good thing are the back water view in front of the hotel and also resturant food

I stayed for one night at the Sisir Palace. The room was clean and comfortable. The staff were friendly and helpful. The room has cable TV and India music channels so I was able to watch the wonderful Indian musical/dance videos.

The shower in the bathroom didn't have a curtain or division from the rest of the bathroom floor so the whole floor gets wet when you take a shower. However, there is a window in the bathroom that opens up widely and the floor dries up after several minutes.

The restaurant downstairs has very delicious Indian food and seems to be popular. There were many customers eating at that restaurant.

The hotel is simple but sufficient. It is a safe budget option. It also located on the waterfront, close to the boat boarding area. I enjoyed sitting by the water in front of the hotel and watching the busy and interesting backwater way life in Alleppey. The people in town were friendly.

I have been traveling solo by motorcycle for 14 months thru North, Central and South America., Africa and now India. Hotel Sisir is a GEM !! Not because it is a beautiful "boutique" kind of hotel or its excellent location or its great restaurant..But no where have I found such a fine, friendly and welcoming staff from the owner,the managers, the receptionists and yes even the house keepers. They all go out of there way to make you feel at home and will arrange anything you need from houseboat tours to local events. One day I asked the owner where i might find a computer store he did not give me directions but had one of the staff drive me to 2 stores before i found what i needed...No charge ! I even tried to offer a tip to the staff who took me but he refused and said it was his pleasure !! Most Excellent place... Enjoy !!

Room Tip: Front rooms have balconies/views over looking the canal.
