Good to have lunch when you are on business travel, driver suggested the best place. Sad part they dont have card machine when people are dying for the change. As per the quality of the food 10/10 and service with all bengali staff 6/10. Not for family crowd.

This place is close to MG Road and Ernakulam station. A simple and neat place. Rooms are large. There are no dining options in the restaurant but they have a simple complimentary breakfast. Fits the budget. A decent place for the family.

Centrally located at Jos Junction, a quite place for business traveler. Though nothing special about the place it has been a regular hotel for many business travelers to Cochin. A very Monotonous breakfast, selected, TV channels are available

It is in the heart of Ernakulam city. The hotel is easily accessible from major Railway station (Ernakulam South) and Bus depot (KSRTC). The major commercial hub, MG road is just... More
