“Excellent hotel to stay in Kerala, particularly Thrissur”
Reviewed March 10, 2013

I am an avid traveller and need to travel to whole of India and Asia. Since we have a maximum number of machine population in Kerala, I need to visit Kerala for officila purposes. I have been visiting Joys palace for the past four years and have never seen a better maintained and value for money hotel anywhere. The staff are excellent, food quality is good, room service awesome and very peaceful. I can very easily say that its my second home.
This is always my most recommended hotel in all over Kerala. You should stay here to feel the difference.

Room Tip: A real value for your money. You would not regret staying here. Taxi services are very efficient and...

It is a business motel.
The rooms are big, spacious, with basic amenities like - tea, coffee, hair dryer, TV and toiletries etc.
Breakfast is buffet style and basic.
It is very well located and easily connected.
It is a safe place.
Cordial staff but English is not their first language.

Hotel Joys Palace, Thrissur
A well appointed hotel in the centre of the town, the hotel offers well appointed rooms taking care of most of your needs. There is a hair dryer, dental kit, shaving kit, besides the usual toiletries. It has hot 9 floors, and higher u go, better is the view on one of the sides facing thecity. Rooms on the other side overlook the bus stand, and the town has some amazingly colorful buses. Rooms are clean hygienic and look the same as they are on the hotel website.
Breakfast menu is elaborate, but quality of food is just about average. Especially the local cuisine is below par when compared to some small eatieries in the town. Coffee served is cold, unless u insist it to be hot. The kerala fish curry ordered for dinner (rs250) was the best alomg with chicken 65. There is a small alcohol shop near the bus stop crossing, 5 mins from the hotel. Its recommended that the kitchen staff focus on lesser items but do them well. The potato wedges, sausages, boiled eggs, and toast bread are the safest bet for breakfast. 
The check in and check out process is efficient, and it took us approx 5 mins to do the same. The travel desk offers cars for local travel, and the rates are 10% higher than what we got from our travel guy. However auto rickshaw (tuktuks) are available easily outside the notel, and they run on meter. For most places within thrissur, it costs from rs.20-40.
If you want to know about good local restaurants, then Bharat veg resturant, 1.2km from this hotel serves authentic and very good veg meals (unlimited food served on your table). Sapphire reataurant on Station road is famous for chicken fry and chicken biryani, which get over very fast every evening. 
Overall tne town is peaceful, clean, with gentle and helpful people. Vadakkunathan temple (Lord Shiva) in the centre of the town is very unique and makes for an interesting temple visit. Dont carry your camera as photography is prohibited. Men are not allowed to wear anything on the upper torso inside the main temple, so one has to carry the shirts, etc. In their hand as one moves around.

Located in a central part of Thrissur, clean and well maintained hotel. The buffet is monotonous and should be avoided if you have more than one person. A la carte manu seems limited but can be customized. I would say the rooms on the bus stand side should be avoided if you are planning to sleep late in the morning. Hotel also provides the vehicles for local travel, though the team at the reception does not know much of the area around. Not much for a walk in the morning outside the hotel but gym could be good enough for exercise freaks.

I would say there is not much around this area and this hotel stands out due to better quality than the surrounding hotels.

Stayed one night in January 2013. Great, spacious and clean room. No complaints aside from the smell of mould (which you quickly forget). Breakfast was very very good. Staff was friendly and offered us a 2013 calendar.

The location, room cleaniliness, customer service and complimentary breakfast were fully satisfactory. Reservations can be made over phone. My room on the 6th floor was overlooking an empty piece of land, a busstand and a slum. I had a tough time switching the tv on and the channels are pretty much restricted. I still must add it is very difficult to think of anything negative about the hotel.

The executive room had all the necessary amenities as well as free Wifi. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: The travel desk of the hotel charges are very high. You can get in touch with a local taxi provider...
