Hotel Travancore Court

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 27 February 2009

There are so many nice hotels in Cochin so why stay here?
Rooms drab and basic, hotel in a fairly dreary area of town. Staff OK. No wi-fi as advertised, so typing this on the hotel Sinclair Spectum (joke, but only just).

This hotel has the advantage of being in a relatively quiet side street but close to the main street in the new town of Cochin. It is about one hour's drive from Fort Cochin. We found the room rather drab, and on one side it looked out onto a multi storey building site the width of a street away. Food was adequate, staff were helpful in providing us with a taxi to Fort Cochin. It is within walking distance of the main ferry terminal which would provide a slightly more adventurous way of getting there, and close to an amazing Kathakali dance workshop/theatre. Usual problems of this level of Indian hotel - power cut leaving you stranded in the dark in the lift, occasional difficulty to provide hot water from the hot tap. The rooftop pool is a bit of a large bathtub in a sea of weatherbeaten decking, with three equally weatherbeaten wooden loungers, but worth a visit for the view.

I was born in Kerala, but lived in the States all my life. I've been to Kerala a dozen times and stayed at this hotel three times. I recommend it.

First is location. It is right off of MG Road, which is the main road with shops and food.

Second is style. It is based on "old world" comfort, which means dark leather couches and brass beds and lots of teak wood. Someone here wrote the hotel was gloomy. I would use a different word, because that's just too negative. Perhaps more light is all that is needed. I would suggest that you ask for a suite and one facing outside. If you get a room facing the building next door, ask to change rooms. The one problem you may face is the hotel being fully booked, which can happen. In that case, you'll have to accept what's been given to you.

Third is service. Kerala mandates professionalism. You'll find that here.

Fourth is food. The restaurant serves free breakfast, which we always enjoyed. The dinner is buffet style, which is good too. But when you're in Kerala, you should never eat in a hotel restaurant; you won't be served authentic Kerala food. Your best bet is to find a local friend who'll show you where to get some good food . . . which surely won't be in a hotel.

I don't have anything negative to say about the place. It is not as popular as Grande or Regent hotels (both also located nearby on MG Road). But their only difference is style -- the Regent being more modern, the Grande being more contemporary. The prices are about the same.

If you're high brow, then I'd recommend the Grande or Regent. If you're not and you can overlook some things, then Travancore is great.

One final note. This review only applies if you need to stay in Kochi proper. It does not apply if you're looking to stay on Fort Kochi island or in-land. There are plenty of good hotels on the island and also in-land.

Hotel is not of the standard that it says it is. Rooms were clean but only basically equiped. No hair dryer, no facilities to make tea or coffee, depressing rooms. Food was poor with meat dishes just bones and scrag ends. Veggy dishes were better. Staff good. Reception not so good, we nearly missed our trips as they failed to contact us.
