i stayed there for 3 days last month during my visit to CSL. i chose this hotel because it was just 200m away from the CSL main gate. room was small but i can say it was decent for the money they charge. food was good, breakfast and buffer dinner was packed enough.i too had problem with hot water when i stayed.

Stayed there for 3 nights with group. Location is fine, just at end of MG Road, opp. to Shipyard. Staff is very co-operative. Its lobby is also air-conditioned but why they do not use AC in lobby, can not be understand. Even, on last morning, when I checked out early at 0530, NO HOT WATER WAS AVAILABLE !!!!!. In bathroom, water was flooded from tub bath. Don't stay on Sunday night. There is terrible noise of Band from Bar/club located downstairs.

Room Tip: Choose 307, 407, 507 or 607. They are big rooms.

Harbour View is a decent property to stay. I traveled with my family and our stay was comfortable. Its good if you stay for 1 or 2 nights. Not appropriate for long stays.

Rooms : 8/10
View : 7/10
Food : 8/10
Location : 8.5/10
Staff : 8/10

Good hotel in that location. Value of money.
Ambiance was good. Good interiors.

Room Tip: Take road facing room on 4th or 5th floor

Harbour View Residency is a well-located hotel, but it certainly shows signs of its age. It is located at one end of the well-known MG Road, bang opposite the Cochin Shipyard. The reception was pleasant enough, but I found the lift to be somewhat aged & dusty. The room was oddly shaped, but clean. There was plenty of water and hot water was easy to get.

One big problem I faced, travelling with three power-hungry devices, was the lack of power outlets--there were zero free outlets. The only one plug in the room had both the TV and the cable box attached, and I had to disconnect both to charge my mobile.

Another problem was that the air-conditioning was pathetic--the hotel expects you to use it in tandem with the fan. Despite the low ambient temperature (Cochin has been experiencing monsoon rains), I woke up at night feeling warm...it is never a pleasant experience to have your sleep interrupted.

The food, on the other hand, was quite good. I had the buffet dinner as well as the bundled breakfast, and I would consider both as clearly above average.

The room I had, overlooking the MG Road, was noisy. If you would like a quiet room, you have to ask for it, I suppose. Also, I had difficulty unlocking my room because of the rather strange doorknob.

The price of the room, at about INR 2500 (which is the off-season/monsoon rate, I suppose) was very reasonably considering its location. On the whole, it was a mixed experience for me.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the main road, if you want to avoid noise

The horrible experience on 18/04/13 is the topic to be shared with fellow travelers. Especially at the restaurant lounge namely Glow, the attitude and mentality of the Staff serving food and drinks.
The instance of zero standard of etiquette or procedure has to be shared. Absolutely zero chivalry of service shown by Service staff during food and beverage service was also noted. A staff called Sreekuttan at 11pm seemed so frustrated by guests that he instead of requesting to exit was shouting and ordering the guests to vacate the area since he wanted to go home. Horrible experience at this hotel clearly Gods Own Country does not deserve such Hospitality Standards overall. Pitiful and depleted food quality and staff interaction throughout.

Room Tip: Please do not stay or enter this cheapstake hotel.

Our first hotel in Cochin. Arrived after midnight on 10th Feb. We booked 4 standard rooms, since there was lack of rooms, they upgraded 2 of our rooms to deluxe room.

Simple, clean rooms. it was a very short stay. we left at 8am the next morning.

Room Tip: Try to book the deluxe rooms, spacious and has better view
