There is no reason to stay in Ernakulam other than for practical purposes. e.g. travel connections. There are very few hotels of good value either. We checked out many before we plumped for this one (most appear to cater for Indian businessmen). Its of reasonable value for the area and the staff are friendly. The restaraunt is also reasonable and it saves you going out to look for one (it can be quite a search). If you have to stay in Ernakulam this is a reasonable if unspectacular option.

Hotel Excellency
Date: 8th Feb,2010.

We started our journey from Bangalore and our destination was Agatti island, Lakshadweep. Since our flight to Agatti was from Cochin, we decided to spend one day in Cochin and enjoy its myriad flavours. We did not make any bookings as such, just searched in the websites for hotels in Cochin and zeroed in on a couple of hotels. Hotel Excellency was one of them because of its location, at the heart of the city.

Excellency has a 24 hour checkin-checkout fecility which seemed to be very important for us :). We checked in at 6:30am in the morning. We took a double room. The room was pretty cool. The washroom was very clean. We refreshed ourselves and went out to have food.

The food quality is very good, though a bit over-priced. Then we enquired regarding a ferry-ride to the backwaters of Cochin. The receptionist helped us to book tickets for the ferry-ride. The place from where the ferry starts is also very close to the hotel. We enjoyed the day in the backwaters of Cochin.

SInce the hotel is in the heart of the city, we had plenty of options to eat outside, do a lot of shopping et al. We received a fax from Lakshadweep tourism courtesy Hotel Excellency.

It was more of a one night stand but we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Excellency. And even though we stayed for more than 24 hours(thanks to our check in time of 6:30am) we were considered to pay for only one night.

The hotel staff are polite and served us for 24 hours. Their service of food was of good quality. The few things that I would have liked was at least the breakfast or the main meal to be a part of the hotel tariff plan. And the food was slightly overpriced. Apart from these issues, our stay was memorable. We thank hotel excellency and its management for making the stay a memorable one.

We stayed on 16th January 2010 and then on 21st January 2010. It is a value for money hotel. We liked the location too. Being very close to the M G Road one can do shopping in a prime area of Ernakulam. The staff is polite and service is good. Despite being in the city centre it is quiet.

I stayed in this hotel for two days in January 2010. Right from the time I called them over phone for booking, my experience was excellent. The person received the details, understood the needs and responded with a confirmation by repeating my requirements.

The location is quite close by to all the main shopping areas; seven minutes walk from Ernakulam Junction.

We landed there in the early hours (4:45 AM), but we never had to wake anyone up. The reception was well lit by then. Within 5 minutes the check-in was over and we were in a decent a/c room in the next three minutes.

The room was spacious and clean. Linen were fresh and spotless. The service was very good and fast.

I would certainly recommend this to any budget traveller with family and kids.

  • Liked — The promptness of staff and cleanliness of room
  • Disliked — I'm afraid, none.
