This place offers excellent value. The rooms are big, clean and airy.
Service is great and there is 24 check in/out. Central location as well.
Highly recommended!

This place is really basic. But we stayed five nights, because:
- it's clean
- the reception people are friendly and helpfull
- the internet is affordable (40 INR/hour) and fast
- the rooms are clean and comfortable
- the location is unbeatable, if you want to stay in Ernakulam and still be able to just hop in to the ferry to Fort Kochi

But: If you need a restaurant in the hotel, soap provided, towels, hot water... You shouldn't go there. We brought our own things and spend the saved money on Broadway and MG Road, two places where you can find the best shopping-places in Kerala.

The price incl. Taxes was 400 INR/night for the doubleroom.

This hotel is located right by the jetty for boats to Fort Cochi, which is the place that tourists to the city come to see. This location is one of only two possible reasons to stay here. The other is the price.

Our room was very basic, with a ceiling fan and cold water. It was clean however.

We were told the price was 350 rupees but this then jumped to 450 rupees mid-conversation.

To sum up, this hotel can only recommended for those on budget who want to be close to the ferry to make a quick getaway.
