“Great Place To Stay In Cochin”
Reviewed 28 February 2014

Our family of 3 members stayed at the Grand Hotel in 2 executive rooms from 20th to 24th Feb 2014. Overall, the Grand Hotel was a great place to stay in Cochin. The rooms were large and well equipped. The Front Office Manager, Mr. Vishnu, was very pleasant and made us feel very welcome during our check-in at 0100 hours on 21st morning. He had also expeditiously resolved our minor issue with the room booking. Our request for hot water facilities for coffee making was fulfilled by a housekeeping staff who goes by the name of Vishnu (similar to Front office Manager). Rooms were very comfortable with air-conditioning and fan provided.

The Grand Pavilion restaurant served the best Indian cuisine I have ever tasted and it is always fully booked during lunch and dinner.

Overall, our stay was comfortable and we were happy with the hotel facilities and the pleasant atmosphere generated by everyone at the hotel right down to the security staff and the doorman with the handle-bar moustache.

This retro chic hotel on MG Rd lives up to it's name. The executive room was huge with period furniture and the triple glazing made sure that it was very quiet. The bed was very comfortable with soft pillows. The bathroom was fabulous with a wonderful shower with hot water 24/7. The restaurant is one of the best in Kochin,the buffet breakfast was the best we had in our travels around India with an enormous selection, something for every body. The dinners were very special, we ate there 5 nights and had different flavours each night, the waiters were very friendly and helpful.
The only critisim is that the Wi Fi is not free the only time we came across this during our travels in India but that is very minor and this hotel is highly recommended.

We did not stay here but did have dinner. The food was really really good actually one of the best meals of our trip and they served Kingfisher. The staff were friendly, it was very busy with locals and tourists and we would have gone back if we had the chance.

It's my first time to visit Cochin for purpose of 4-day Business Trip, I chose Grand Hotel because of its proximity from the company I am dealing with. I stayed in the deluxe room, its nice with balcony and the bathroom is well-cleaned. The hotel has the restaurant the Grand Pavilion and it's the best Indian cuisine resto in town, it serves authentic Indian foods, and has continental dishes as well. The restaurant tend to get fully occupied during lunch & dinner. My only drawback during my stay is that grand hotel has a very poor internet connectivity, I need to pay an extra 400 Rupees to get a 24-hour connections and it's really very very slow so I could not email my business report...while one of the hotel trends nowadays has free wifi connections in every corner of the hotels, at Grand Hotel it is still an elusive and expensive commodity.

The room does not have a simple coffee/tea +hot water boiling jug . No free wifi service in the lobby . The bathroom looks so empty. No shampoo and insufficient soap. The towels looks okay. The breakfast menu was the same for my 3 nights stay there. The lunch was
good and had lots of variety of dishes.

Grand hotel has always been my favourite in Cochin, be it for the stay or the food they serve in their restaurant. The hotel is located on the MG road, a very convenient location. Rooms are of good quality and good value for money.

Must try their restaurant and have some authentic Kerala cuisine. Couchyn, their lounge bar is a great place to chill.
