Reviewed 11 April 2014

I had booked this room from 10th April to 11th April, 2014. Room was neat and clean. Staff are cooperative. Everthing was good. On Cleartrip, its price was 950 , i have applied a coupon and i got it in 750. So, its good at rate of Rs 750 but not good at 950. In this hotel AC rooms are so much costlier. They should minimize these price. Overall good location and everthing was good,

for the rate offered i was a bit skeptical on the level of services that would get. However, as my schedule included early morning train travel to other locations in the State and late night return, i went in for this place as it was recorded to be just near Ernakulam Junction. actually this place is not near but just hop-skip-and-jump away...1 star given by me. Then the reception - well informed on the guest details ... 2nd star given by me. checked into the room... clean. overall Ambiance decent. 3rd star. it is a perfect budget hotel for ones who wish to have a good stay. t had to book a 4 am taxi to the airport, and the staff ensured that the best service was made available at the city approved rate. this is a no frills place. good for all segments if having a good sleep and stay is what is expected. he only minus point here is that there is no dinner served. the restaurant down only operates till lunch hours. However, there are couple of good joints on the main railway station road from where take away can be got. and the way from the railway station exit to the hotel ( 200 mrts) has 3-4 bars... this can be ignored. Shalimar Metro does not serve any type of alcoholic drinks nor helps u procure one from outside. overall i personally rate it as a very decent place to stay....stay only!!!

I really dont know why they always arrange my room just next to the reception, anyway, first thing is about the room, i would expect to have better room then this, the picture might mislead a little bit. however consider the price rate and the location, it is good for people who travel by train, the train station is just 10 minutes walk from the hotel. Staffs are OK, but need to improve a bit how to deal with guest, i booked a tour via the hotel reception, and next day i went for the tour, the staff in that jetty said there is no tour for that day, ask me to go back to hotel and refund the ticket, i back to the hotel, ask for refund, and the first guy seems don't really know whats going on and how to manage this, he ring up another guy for help, after few phone call, they say the tour will run in tomorrow morning, ask me to go there again, i was ok for that, and i knew this is not their fault, they are just a sort of agency, however you will have to show a little bit sorry for that, even it is not your fault. but what i can tell was like, "this is not our problem."
anyway it is a hotel good for one or two days

The hotel close to the train station, very neat and clean. staffs are good and helpful. rooms are small but you can ignore that as its clean. The hotel is secluded from the noisy streets, it was a good stay. they have restaurant.. hopefully veg.

One thing I must tell that they maintain the rooms. They give you good service. Restaurant is a problem but u can neglect it coz lot of restaurants are in near by area.
I should give overall 4****.

Over all this they give you best suggestions for food, travel and areas u want to see.
