A popular hotel at a convenient location at Kochi

Posted 20 Apr, 2015

This is my third time stay with this hotel which I visted in 2002 for the first time and stayed for two weeks on official job. So this time also when I decided to visit Kochi with family I booked this hotel again. It is a good property situated just one block away from Kochi North Station. So anyone dropping at Kochi Central has to take a cab to the hotel. This is a good hotel with all amenities which you look for quiet stay in a vacation. Though this time the room was a bit stuffy and I insisted for a change, but as we were staying there just for two days and spending the whole day outside, we ultimately did not change. The air conditioning was good as usual and service was good too. The breakfast area has changed over the years, but the flavour and ambiance was pleasant. The swimming pool on the top was a bit small and does not give you the feel if you are a swimming buff, but for a brief stay it was okay. It has a gym facility also available though I could not use that due to lack of time. The hotel staff were very accommodating and they accepted all the sudden changes we made in our quick schedule with a smile. The cab we booked the earlier day did not turn up in time, but it was smoothly replaced by another from the hotel so that our Munnar trip for same day could take place. The bus route was close by, but we could barely afford that due to paucity of time except after return from our dinner in a restaurant some two km away. Some eateries are also there around, but did not appeal to us for their poor outlook. So we took a short trip about a km and a half away for a better choice.

Awesome accomodation

Posted 26 Dec, 2015

I stayed at this place for four days and I had a really good experience. The rooms were really spacious, comfortable and well maintained. The staff was courteous and the services were good. The food provided at the restaurant was really good. I did not find any problems with the room, service or the location. The hotel is located at a distance of about 25 kilometers from the kochi airport, so it takes some time to reach the hotel from the airport. I would recommend this place if you are planning to visit kochi.
