Mermaid Hotel, Kochi (Cochin)
Mermaid Complex, Kaniyampuzha Road, Vyttila, Kochi, Kerala 682019
Hotel staff was polite but they donâ€™t know anything about nearby restaurants, attractions or places to visit. I guess they were new but i was expecting them to help me at least in getting a route map. Room was okay but i think it could have been cleaner. I could find dirt here and there and paint is also faded. No tea bags or kettle provided which was disappointing.
It was a holiday trip in the month of November 2016. It was an online booking through Goibibo. I would like to rate the destination as excellent since the places around was good. The hotel location was excellent since it was located near the back water. The appearance of the hotel was excellent as it was maintained very clean. Booking and front office was excellent as they were very good in handling and good to respond hence the check in and check out was on time. The services given by the staff were excellent as they were helpful and responsive in behaviour. The room at this hotel was excellent as it was spacious, hygienic and maintained well with all the required amenities in good condition. The food at this hotel was excellent as the taste and quality was good. The breakfast was complimentary and it was very delicious. I suggest this hotel to other travellers as it is a good hotel. The overall experience was good at this hotel.
The hotel located in the city centre, Vytilla is easily accessible and situated in a vast compound. Being on the banks of the lagoon the surroundings are well arranged with facilities like ample car parking, swimming pool, side-walk etc. The rooms are well maintained and being a hotel with more than 150 rooms, few may need slight repairs. I have stayed here several times for official purposes and must say that I enjoyed the stay here with the overall ambiance, the restaurant with nice cafe, the vast compound to walk around. The lobby with the view of the backwater. The calm and quiet atmosphere though situated near the Vytilla bus terminal. The excellent room service and the courteous staff are to be mentioned specially. They have a Wine & beer parlour which was earlier a full fledged bar but the guests coming there won't put at risk our privacy. The Managing Director and General Manager will be there to attend to our problems if we have any. For the rate they charge compared to the facilities they offer, the hotel is really worth.
Overall, my experience was good in this hotel. It was a very nice hotel. They provided welcome drink on arrival. Hotel was very conveniently located. It was located very near to the main road.

Booking and front office facility were also very good. Services were very good. Room was also very good. Food and drink was good. Activity was average. Cochin as a destination is a good place to go. I visited there with my family in November. It was a relaxing holiday. They can start some activities there. I will recommend this hotel to other travellers. It was reasonable. Swimming pool and maintenance should be there.
Everything was excellent in the hotel. Wi-Fi service was available in the hotel. The room provided by the hotel was neat and clean. All amenities were available in the room. The check-in and check-out was on time. The activities were not available in the hotel. The best part of the hotel was rooms. I would not suggest anything to this hotel.
We opted apartments in mermaid for birthday celebrations. Great place for families to halt. Food but not that great. But you can a lot many places nearby. It's we close to vyttila bus hub. So traveling around Cochin will be more easy. And since it's near hub 24/7 night also will be like day.
