Hi, i went to kerala with my hubby and my 7 month old son in the month of April. We enjoyed a lot. The hotel's name itself describe the services. We found the services excellent and very quick. The food tastes great in the hotel. i tried other restraunts during my trip, but the taste was horrible. But in hotel i was relaxed. We enjoyed a lot there. The hotel team helped us to get cab to Athirapali waterfalls and guided us where to go first. We still cherish those moments. It was a fun filled week............... I dont remember how much i paid for one night but yeah it was very nominal and genuine. I wil suggest my friends to stay at Hotel Excellency whenever they visit kochi.

Hotel is clean, staff is good and humble. Room service is OK.
Room rates are moderate. House keeping staff excellent.
Eating in their Restaurant is worth, specially for the Phulka.
Location is very GOOD.

I stayed for 3 days in this hotel. There were couple of issues which kept irritating me from the beginning
1. Bad quality of TV reception
2. Extremely slow room service..the average time taken to bring water or newspaper to the room was half an hour

The aspect that totally got me wild was the rudeness of the manager at the reception. I wanted to extend my stay for another two days for which i went to the manager. He started asking for the full lodging amount in advance. I felt that it was unreasonable to make that request to a guest who has already stayed in the hotel for 3 days and already paid for those 3 days in advance. I offered to pay a part of the money in advance, but he rudely told me that it was their hotel policy and if any guest did not want to follow it, he/she is free to check-out.

Such un-courteous and rude behavior totally put me off and I immediately walked into nearby 'Hotel Yuvarani'. Eventhough their room tariff was couple of hundred bucks higher, they offered me complimentary breakfast (which was absent in Excellency) and also did not ask for any advance deposit. The point that took the cake in Hotel Yuvarani was the courteousness, helpful nature of staff and extremely prompt service.

My advise to all my fellow travelers is that Hotel Excellency should be avoided and far better service and happier stay can be had at any other hotel.

The Hotel was nice. But the beds , even in the Deluxe room happened to be too small .Found it difficult to accomodate a child in the double bed comfortably.The breakfast happened to be over by 10:30 in the morning and you don't happen to get too many varieties.Even getting Keralite food happens to be difficult.

About the HOtel : A friend of mine suggested this hotel as I was looking out for a hotel taht is near to the shopping centres on gandhi road in Cochin. The hotel is not so posh but the rooms were very good and very clean.

Location : very convenient in terms of shopping and sightseeing. All shopping centers on gandhi road are walkable and hotels arranges for all sightseeing - mattanchery, temples and back water cruises.

Food : I would rate it as average but you have plenty of options in Gandhi road which is walkable.

In a nut shell : If you are travelling with family and looking for budgetary accomodation in the heart of cochin, then I would recommend this place.

Had a good experience in hotel excellemcy. The location is excellent and tariff is good considering the location.

Felt that the double room could have a bit more space ( especially if u are planning to go for a extra bed)

Overall experience was good.
