“Budget Hotel”
Reviewed 19 July 2014

I stayed here for one night for INR 1300 A/C room with accommodation only in first week of July. The hotel located on MG Road, south Railway station, opposite to Alibaba and 1 dishes. When we checked in the room was bit stinking and bed sheets were not clean. The hotel is located approx 2 km from marine drive. Tourist can use Boat Jetty service from Marine drive to go to Mattancherry and Fort kochi. The charges are pretty low INR 4 per person and will take you 10-20 min in boat.

Stayed there for 2nights.Very decent hotel.Good facilities.
Located off mg road,heart of city.
wifi is free,
rooms are neat, Normal rooms are bit small.Go for deluxe rooms which is spacious.
Food is fine.
Best bet to stay in kochi

Room Tip: Don't take rooms in the back of the building as the dog in the next house keeps barking and also...

Hotel Excellency at Kochi is located in the heart of the city. Location wise it is at great advantage. You can get around easily from here by hiring auto-rickshaws which are quite cheap! Dining option comes in form of both in-room service and visiting the separate restaurant named ‘Exotica’ adjacent to Hotel building. Inside room, separate small dining table (with 2 chairs) are provided which is a plus point to have dinner at room in relaxed way without jostling for space (among the clutter of your baggage) .

The hotel is a multi-storied building equipped with elevator.

Rooms are spacious and well-furnished (AC, large mirror on wall, LCD TV, mini fridge) with various room-services readily available e.g. Laundry etc. You get a complimentary water bottle in mini fridge.

Comfortable bed guarantees a good night’s sleep. The Bed linens are astonishingly white and catches attention. Hot and cold shower with advanced bath fittings make for a great bathing experience. Toiletries are also provided with. Room looks neat and clean and wall colors soothe eyes.

Easy access to nearby markets, eateries, dine-out restaurants, convenience stores, Marine Drive, Ernakulam Junction Rail Station etc. put it at great advantage. It offers all modern amenities and comfort although at a bit high rate.

It is perfectly suited for corporate stay.

Hotel is very close from the cochin Railway station. minimum fare by autorickshaw.
The hotel is very nice, very good ambience, looks like recently built or renovated. the room is also very comfortable with a very nice and neat shower/toilet.There is no breakfast but there are a lot of restaurants/cafes around.
