We stayed there as a family group of 7 adults for 4 nights in January. The good thing about the hotel is its situation on MG Road in the centre of town if that is what you want. It is away from Fort Kochi and the tourist places but it is ideally situated for restaurants, local shops, colourful markets and a great little Ayurveda clinic where we had excellent massage. Other good points include the bar where you can get beer, clean good sized rooms, good breakfast spread and delicious buffets for lunch and dinner.
The service was good. Checking in was not as smooth as we would have expected as two couples from our party who had arrived in the middle of the night the day before us were left waiting for an hour before their room was eventually ready. Exhausted from their long flight from Europe, they were not impressed!
The hotel is in need of renovation and work has started. The second lift is being installed and rooms on the 6th floor have been completely redecorated, the bathroom with the old bath tub replaced by a beautiful shower room. One word of warning about bedrooms, avoid rooms situated at each end of the corridors as on each floor there are air conditioning heat exchange units which are extremely noisy, they look like big turbines.
In all we would choose to stay in that hotel again as long as we got one of the newly redecorated rooms in the centre of the corridor and not overlooking a wall which blocks all natural light.
