“Good Location and Service”
Reviewed 25 January 2012

We stayed in this hotel for a total of 3 nights. The front desk staff and the rest of the hotel staffs were very friendly and helpful. The location was good with a clean restaurant next door. Other amenities are also within walking distance. The shopping area Ernakulam is also very near, about 5-10 minutes auto ride. Very convenient. Breakfast was also good although the selection is limited. They serve both Indian and western breakfast.

The stay at Presidency was very mediocre. The staff in the restaurant Lotus restaurant located on the 1st floor of the hotel are slow to respond and would rather gather among themselves and ignore the customers.
The room provided on the 6th floor is average and construction work next door disturbed peaceful sleep. This hotel has been booked with Kerala Holidays dot com under the premium 4 * package which is obviously not 4 stars. Would definitely not recommend Presidency Hotel or Tour Package operation Kerala Holidays . com.

Room Tip: Do not waste your time or money making a booking here.

We booked this hotel because it promised a swimming pool and gym. Unfortunately the pool was closed for repairs and we were not informed about this at the time of booking. We stayed in a suite which was spacious but the view was nothing to write home about and the furnishings rather dusty. The hotel had complimentary breakfast but that was quite poor in terms of quality and the variety of dishes offered, it mainly had south Indian food and nothing much else. Room service was poor and horrendously expensive. However the hotel stocked toiletries well.

Hotel was good with decent arrangements. Few things needs to be fixed.
As our driver was waiting in parking but they didn't informed and in confusion we lost around 2 hours of precious time.
again in Bar we were asked to be served in room(as the ambiance was not good for a family), but no body came with anything and after asking several times, at last we bought drinks from outside.
Barring this, rest was overall good experience. No good Restaurant is near by except one small named BTH(Very Nice dosas).

Very Good Hotel to stay in Kochi. This is on a walkable distance of 2 minitues from Railway station. Neat and Clean ample car parking, having Gym and Swimming pool. Very good food and staff is also very good. I am a frequent travellar to Kerala. in Kochi after one year at last i found a good hotel. Other wise in a good hotel in kerala the services are so bad u can't imagine. but in this Hotel services are excellent.

Room Tip: All rooms are good.
