“A month at the Green Palace”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 March 2014

Loved staying here. Rooms very clean (cleaned twice/week or there's a make up my room card). Music from places on the cliff tends to stop at 11pm but this never bothered me. The sound of the ocean is far louder. Staff are very helpful. The ABBA restaurant is excellent and popular. Currency can be exchanged at the tourist info office at the gate. Great location on the cliff. WIfi can be intermittent, best accessed on balconies or in the ABBA restaurant. Looking forward to going back.

The hotel is in a great location, it is clean, the staff are friendly and the room is large with basic amenities. The restaurant serves great food and has wifi, it`s a great place to chill. We got a great price by just walking in and enquiring. We would stay here again for the price we paid.

There're two good things in the hotel - location and the restaurant. The room Deluxe is overpriced. Dirty, broken sanitary appliances, unregulated shower, smell of old military socks. The most expensive room with the sea view is also facing the restaurant creating too much noise both late evening and early morning.

We went back to Varkala this year and when we walked into The Green Palace it was like coming home. We really love it there, it is so friendly and charming and the position is ideal. Thank you Green Palace for the marvellous welcome and for looking after us so well. X

The Green Palace is a spotlessly clean hotel in a good central location in Verkala. It is very simple but we appreciated the cleanliness - no cockroaches whatsover. The restaurant nearby is outstanding and the best in Verkala. Would recommend this hotel as one of the best to stay in in the area.

Was really a cool and comfortable experience. Owner and staff were very cooperative and friendly
as it was a off season trip the restaurant was under renovation, but we were made comfortable in a nearby restaurant. Anyway if any next trip to Varkala then the stay will definitely be at Hotel Green Palace.

Room Tip: Sea Facing Room are the Best

I've been going to Varkala since 2006, since when I was staying in Trivandrum (when every other weekend we used to run off to Varkala) till the last time when I went in September, 2012 from Bangalore. I think I have been there for atleast 14 times and out of those I've stayed in Green Palace for atleast 10 times. And out of these 10 times I've taken along friends, family, extended family, in fact have also stayed there alone with my mother. Am saying this to emphasize the fact that it is a very safe place to stay, even for 2 ladies alone.
The best thing about Green Palace is how neat it looks from the outside and the inside lives up to the image as well. It's nothing very fancy, but whatever it has is very well maintained. The rooms are clean, the sheets are clean, the bathrooms are clean, the AC works fine (only problem the TV does not have many national channels to offer). Must commend the management because it has stayed the same since 2006.
There is another great thing about Green Palace - its location and view, which I have always felt is the best on the Clifftop. All its rooms are sea facing and the view that you get from the verandah is something you will not easily forget (I'm not sure about the ground floor rooms though, I have always stayed on the first floor).
The only negative point here is the food, nothing to write home about, in fact would recommend to eat outside. Otherwise, Green Palace for me, is where I will always head if I am in Varkala.
