“Poorly kept room and terrible service”
Reviewed 5 June 2012

The hotel on the outside looked pretty decent and when I entered the room it looked like having a heritage touch to it till I settled in.
Once I settled in, I realized that the bedsheet was dirty, the bathroom was unhygienic and dirty. The room had a weird smell (the one that is there in a old room that has not been open since ages)
The service was also slow - starting with the phone handset in the room which was unresponsive to the staff that took ages to move.
Overall a budget hotel and is not recommended at all if you are looking for a decent experience

I stayed in Tranvancore Court hotel, Cochin for only one day, sadly. But the experience was great. Sufficient rooms: well lit, good linen, clean bathroom which was well-equipped. The overall decor of the hotel is tasteful. Great location as it is on a road parallel to the market road - MG Road - which has other hotels, restaurants and shopping places. Few mins and Rs 20 by auto to Marine Drive where you can have a leisurely walk by the waterfront and go shopping in the ABAD mall. The hotel is a short walking distance to the cultural centre Durbar hall.

Breakfast buffet is satisfactory. Plenty of options at their multi-cuisine restaurant on the first floor for other meals. Their swimming pool on the eight floor is a kiddie pool really - 3.5 ft smth deep. It's more like a big jacuzzi! They could replace it with gym facilities instead.

For a view, you get to see crowded Ernakulam's skyline. Nothing pretty. The downside of the location is that occasionally you will hear a shrilling horn from the traffic on MG Road. Not that it really bothered me personally.

This is a more business or pass-through hotel than leisure hotel. Friendly staff and good service round up a welcoming experience.
It will be the first choice for me at the current price which is well-under Rs 4,000 for deluxe rooms.

Thank you for reading.

Room Tip: Stayed on the 6th floor which was great. Only the walls are thin and you can hear the neighbor if th...

Couldn't complain about anything here. On arrival at reception, total professionalism shown, and very quick and simple. Taken to rooms with bags by very friendly staff. Hotel has a lovely old worlde charm about it throughout. The hotels restaurant is stunning and again here both the staff and food were amazing. The location was fantastic too as whilst accessed via a smaller lane way, so off the main road, just a few steps away from all the shops you could need. Loved this place and only disappointment was that we could only stay one day.
