This hotel is situated in the heart of KOCHI / COCHIN on the famous MG Road and is very to close to the busy shopping area in Kochi like Marine Drive and easily accessible to the railway station and the bus station and traveling on the same road takes us to the other part of Kochi like the Wellington Island, Fort Kochi and such other places.
This hotel has a real huge parking space and also provides a sheltered parking as well, people traveling by own transport need not worry on this issue at all; this is a major advantage for people driving down.
As the Hotel name tells, it is truly a Hotel “GRAND”.
I would rate this hotel equivalent to any other 4 star properties.
I had opted for a Executive room and had requested for a road facing room which was really big, the major plus point of this category of the room was the size of the room, and it came with 2 double beds, the only drawback I saw was that even though the rooms were upgraded to the current requirement, the room still has a old TV, which I feel can be done away with it.
Otherwise, I did not experience any short coming in this property as well as the room. It was truly a good experience by me and my family.
The in house restaurant is good. The complimentary buffet breakfast offered by them is basic and good with a mix of continental and veg and Non Veg on the menu. Being a south Indian and a Pure vegetarian I felt that the spread offered on the menu for Veggies was too little or I could say it was nothing, my suggestion would be is to have another one / two more of the typical south Indian Veg snacks on the table.
A round of applause to the service offered by the people from the room service as well as the house keeping.
But the staff in the front desk lacked on the info about various tourist hot spots in Kochi, they were not even updated on the distance to the near by major tourist places.
Probably I think this might be a drawback for a tourist who wants to explore the city by himself, for a business traveler there should be no problem.
A clean, and a very good hotel, to sum it up in all I personally highly recommend this hotel.
