This is best hotel in Kochi, the staff is superb, the restaurant is sea facing and you can actually feel the Arabian sea from hotel, try to book sea facing rooms and try to pay extra for sea view, breakfast spread is also very good, the staff is excellent and the Supervisor also try best for the customer experience, there is a boat ride at 5 PM which is complementary and is must. I would also advice the dinner as the restaurant serves excellent food and you can appreciate the sea view
When it comes to comfort and courteous treatment, Taj needs no accrediting. Having marine drive next to it added value to the place. I travelled with my family, including 2 kids and all of us enjoyed the place. They had good package to offer, which made it economical too. Cruise ride offered by the hotel is an added advantage.
As the name suggests, Gateway hotel is one of the best properties here. It is a Taj property so you can expect a lot from them. They are the best We stayed for 2 nights and we enjoyed are lot. It was a business trip and was an amazing experience It also has the most polite staff.
I stayed at the Gateway Hotel Marine Drive in Kochi on an official trip for two days. The hotel is pretty far from the Airport. It took us close to an hour to reach the venue but the wait was worth what awaited us The hotel is at the perfect location. Just overlooking the sea the hotel makes an awesome spot for enjoying sunrise with a cup of morning coffee. If you a fitness freak, you can't ask for a better location. You get to go for a morning run alongside the sea on a well paved path with trees on both sides of it The rooms are averagely spacious but offer extreme comfort and luxury. The beds are well-done and the toiletries a nicely maintained in the rest rooms. WiFi offer decent surfing speed and the staff is extremely helping and cordial The hotel arranges for a complimentary hour long cruise ride in the evening in the adjoining backwaters of the sea The selling point of the hotel is its restaurant. Its got a brilliant ambience and a perfect lighting offered by its translucent ca-nope. One can feel the natural sunlight in the restaurant but no warm and sticky weather even in the humid months of April-May, thanks to their splendid air conditioning system for the same The food menu is exhaustive, covering most of the cuisine though a little on an expensive side. The buffet is excellent and desserts are sumptuous The restaurant has live music performance for dinner which simply makes the dining experience heavenly Overall, a perfect choice for an accommodation option in Kochi. Looking forward for more stays in the future.
A thing of beauty is a joy forever. Great ambience, fabulous hospitality and a scintillating view. For a fabulous time in Kochi, all I can suggest is-The Gateway Hotel. The sea facing room was overwhelming to the mind and serene to the senses. The food was great and the staff most courteous. The first impression is the last impression and I wouldn't delay one bit in saying that when I first entered the lobby of the hotel the only word I could bring out to describe was "MAGNIFICENT". Embellished with gorgeous paintings and works of those renown, it was just spectacular, just like a king's court. Moreover, the facilities were amazing, swimming pools Spock and span, indoor games entertaining. The ferry ride was really a new experience. Above all, the hospitality of the staff and their courtesy was overwhelming. Undoubtedly, this experience was indeed divine and left an indelible mark in my heart. I greatly recommend everyone to stay in this hotel for a few days of luxury to carry happy memories for a lifetime !!

Hotel location was well accessible and reachable. Bus stop was nearby the hotel. Staff was wellhead with customers and they were responding very well to their queries. Room was tidy and maintained. Look wise, hotel was nice. Check-in and check-out facility was good. I had garden view from my room. AC, geyser, refrigerator and all things were working nicely. I took veg and non-veg meal in the hotel. Taste and quality wise, food was best but food varieties were limited. Cost wise, hotel was medium. Swimming pool was not available in the hotel but parking space was provided. In my opinion, hotel should reduce the cost of tariff.
Mine was a short overnight stay and the location was very convenient. Even if sightseeing was not on our agenda, the complimentary evening cruise in the backwaters was very interesting. The seafront is adjacent to the hotel lawns and the shopping malls too. Rooms were good if a bit outdated in furnishing. The breakfast in the Bubble cafe is a unique feature of the stay. There was enough of items to suit the Western and Indian tastes as well as the local flavour. So if you are planning for a business or pleasure trip with your family this a hotel that can be recommended.
