Great location & good rooms

Posted 1 Dec, 2015

The hotel location is convenient close to the busy SM Street and hence good for shopping etc. About one Km from Railway Station and Bus Stand. Though in the middle of city, there was no noise or crowding in the hotel. There is large parking area. Well-kept hotel with courteous security staff. The front desk staff are friendly and very helpful. The rooms are good well-maintained, bathroom was well-kept. The food options are limited but many near restaurants as well. The service is good and staff are polite.

Staff's were behaved friendly

Posted 11 Jan, 2017

The hotel was located nearby the bus stand and railway station. The service of the hotel was very good. I had visited this hotel for official trip. The room was booked by my friend. The ambience of the hotel was good. The hotel building was old. The parking place was available. The garden was not there in the hotel. The hotel staff’s were behaved friendly. Service was provided on time at the hotel. The room was fine. All the amenities were in working condition. Towel, bed sheet and blanket were available in the room. The food price was very expensive. I had only Kerala food in the hotel. I didn’t check the activity was there in the hotel. The best part was service and staff’s behaviour. I would suggest this hotel to reduce the food price and improve food quality. I would like to recommend this hotel for upcoming travellers.

Excellent service, decent food at reasonable price

Posted 14 May, 2014

I visited along with my wife, daughter and grandson was visited Kozhikode for a day to attend my brother's son's marriage. As my grandson was just six months old and considering the special requirements of the infant we choose to stay in a hotel rather than stay with relatives. As we had stayed in this hotel once earlier and our experience was quite satisfactory we decided to opt for Malabar Palace once again. And we were not disappointed The hotel is reasonably priced, the services are excellent and the food is decent. The room is exactly as shown in the photo in their web site, good sized, double bed, neat and clean with tea/ coffee maker provided. As we were three and infant, the hotel provided us with an extra cot and mattress which seamlessly merged with the original. My six month old grandson just loved rolling over it. The toilet was neat and clean. The hotel provides neat towels, soaps, shampoo etc Room service was excellent. The service boys were courteous and on time. The hotel is located right near to the upmarket commercial centre. The railway station is not far away. Good, reasonably priced, restaurants (outside of hotel) are available at short distance. Next time I visited Kozhikode I shall definitely opt for Malabar Palace once again.
