“Budget stay at stone's throw from ernakulam south station”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2014

Pretty decent hotel. We chose a non-a/c room since we only needed a place to spend the day as our train was in the night and the weather was very pleasant. The room was ok. For the money we spent, I doubt we would get anything better in such close proximity to the station. It's a 2min walk from the station. MG road is nearby. The hotel staff was courteous. Well, nothing more to say. Alright place. Decent for budget travellers if they want a place to keep their stuff, roam all day and crash in the night.

Affordable price.The only advantage is that it is very near to South railway station.But rooms are not clean. Service is average. AC rooms are much better than non AC.

Pick this hotel only if you are in a hurry and you do not have any other options/

Hotel is near to railway station.Ac rooms are enough big and clean. I dont have any idea about non ac rooms.Room service need to be improved.(even room service number is not displayed[i had to go to reception to know the room service number],no BAR).Over all suitable for one night stay at affordable price.I got ac room @ INR 1530.

This Hotel is the worst hotel you will ever stay. The staff is not trained how to Manage Customers and the GM MR. Unni Krishnan Verbally Assaults Customers. If you are coming with your wife and kids, be ready for for Assaults. The Towels are dirty, the bedsheet is dirty and overal experience is bad.

We arrived to Ernakulam by train in the afternoon (5:30 pm) and just needed a room for one night as we were planning to catch a bus to Munnar next morning. We didn't want to waste time for checking different hotels so we took a room at Paulson Park Hotel as it was close to the station. After being shown non AC and AC rooms, we opted for standard AC room no 510 as there was not a very big difference in price but a huge gap in comfort between the rooms. Our room was large, with lot of place for sitting, table, mirror, small fridge. The bathroom however did not keep the standard of the room. It was rather uninviting, not the cleanest one, with old mirror and stains on the wall. We managed to use it during 1-night stay but would not like to use such bathroom for a longer stay.

The interior layout of the hotel looked to me a bit prison-like (forgive my connotation but check the photos). Fortunately the colour paint gives some vibrancy here. There's a small lift for the guests. The hotel also has a restaurant but we dined outside.

We paid 1882 rupees for double room - in our opinion bit too much. Watch out as the prices in the reception are stated without tax, so ask for the price with taxes included.

Room Tip: Definitely go for the AC rooms. Non AC rooms are very small and look shabby.

Visited the hotel with family as I was in Kochi for a day. The hotel is a very average one with a queer design for a hotel (supposedly 2 star). The rooms are placed in a rectangle on the inside with a long corridor, somewhat like the chawls of Mumbai. The furniture's are old but freshly polished. Decor is okay. The double rooms are spacey. Has a okay Restaurant and coffee shop. The property is located very near to the Ernakulam South/Junction station which may suit the busy business traveller. All in all an average hotel.
