If you're coming to Kochi/ Ernakulam/ Cochin to see Chinese fishing nets, spice markets, Kalari, local color, you should stay in that neighborhood and not in this hotel, which is 45 minutes away by car and bridge and 20 minutes away by boat and tut-tut. There are good hotels closer to the action, and what the Gateway offers is a Luxe snob appeal that caters to the class differences to be found in modern, well-appointed hotels. Note that Gateway charges extra for WiFi and for anything else that the business traveller will not mind on their expense account, but that the tourist traveller will find aggressively opportunistic. The Gateway Hotel is in the downtown section which is completely snarled in the traffic made worse by the ongoing construction of the future Kochi Metro System, so do not arrive during rush hour.
