“Disappointing state of disrepair...”
Reviewed 7 January 2014

The hotel was an absolute disappointment. Old and musty, with very dated furnishings and decor. The breakfast was horrible and there is absolutely nothing to do in this hotel. We were grateful to just have a decent bed to sleep after a challenging overnight train ride from Bangalore. I will not recommend this hotel to anyone.

When we arrived and ready for a swim, guess what? Pool and roof were out of bounds and looked as though they had been for months.
Coffee bar was closed for? but opened during our stay.
Dining room should be avoided and we went elsewhere. Only a buffet was possible and didn't look appetising.
Rooms were spacious but not appealing and tired.
This is definitely not what is advertised or shown in the photos and displays in and around the property .

Room Tip: Try the Grand Hotel

We stayed for two days here on family vacation. The location is right at the heart of the city and easily accessible from (Eranakulam Jn.) Railway station, Bus stand and arterial MG road. The reception desk staff and formalities were hassle-free and they upgraded us to a suite room. The room was quite spacious and furnishings were quite good. The house-keeping services were also up to the mark and our requests for extra bedsheet etc. were catered to promptly. Thus all the ingredients for an excellent experience were there except for the restaurant. The food including the breakfast buffet fell short both on quality and the variety of items available. Western and North Indian items were virtually absent. Also the service was lousy to tell the least and most of the staff were not trained and seemed lost in their response to requests. The swimming pool which was a major attraction for choosing this hotel was down for maintainence and not knowing this before-hand also left a bad taste. The Ayurvedic spa also lacked experienced staff and the treatments were quite expensive. All-in-all this place is good if you are not very much of a foodie.

Room #706, 708.
Reception staff ecellent.
It seems that the rooms are not stadardised!
706 had a small plasma tv while 708 had an old desktop.
The bathroom sink seemed smallest in the world!
The restaurant staff needs to improve much.
Buffet b/f and dinner is avoidable. Staff not English friendly.
Croissants were cold and inspected by fingers!
Overall this joint can do much better.

Room Tip: Insist on communicating with staff who understands English. Not a problem if you speak Malayalam.

Royal stay in a suite room, good food, value for money in a peaceful location but centrally located and very close to busy jose junction. Enjoyed the stay thoroughly and will definitely recommend this property to others and will also come back after couple of years

I had the opportunity to stay at the hotel on a business trip last month. The hotel is located off MG Road in Cochin & does not have impressive exterior. The lobby is big & the entire hotel bears a nostalgic look of a bygone era. The rooms are not very big. The staff is not so well trained but they make it up by the courteous behaviour. The TV in my room was an antique piece & not a great choice of channels. Linen was very good & fresh. Compared to facilities offered, the tariff seams to be on little higher side; but I guess, the same can be negotiated. Overall OK experience.
