“Most helpful service ever...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 April 2013

I booked this hotel for 4 days to take in the Pooram festivities. Although at a higher rate at this time it was worth it to have a 5th floor room with direct view of fireworks and one of the elaborately decorated festival towers (see photos).

Manager Francis Joy was the best host anyone could hope to have, with the most professional service. From my very first email enquiry to bookings, check-in, finding out about attractions, etc. all matters were handled expertly.

While enjoying the melee of the Pooram my passport got lost. I was immediately resigned to an unwanted extension of my holiday in India. Never to fear, Manager Francis liaised with the police and led me back through the massive crowds to retrieve my passport at a police control station. How I could ever recover a lost passport from police who were in the midst of managing crowds of tens or hundreds of thousands was nothing short of miraculous. Just two hours had lapsed.

The hotel itself was a respite from the heat and the crowds and perfectly situated to go to and fro temple grounds and exhibitions. I have to say at the end of the day that the people make all the difference. I was in the best of hands at the Pooram International.

I had visited Hotel Pooram International for a Business Trip. The hotel is located at a convenient place and has proper business convention centres. The hotel staff is quite cordial. The interior of the hotel is good. The internet connection is not good. Other services as in parking, food and hospitality is satisfactory. For professional visit and meeting it is a good place considering the cost and facilities.

Room Tip: Please choose room on third or fourth floor. The room service facility is better compared to second...

The Pooram International is a nice place to be in Thrissur. It is close to the main circle at thrissur and in the heart of the city. It is very convinient in case on plans to enjoy the yearly Thrissur, Pooram festival because it is very close to where the action is.

The rooms at Pooram are neat and clean and the food although a little expensive is of good quality.

The staff at Pooram is warm and very helpful. Overall, I would consider this a very good stay

Me and my wife stayed here for two nights. The staff was very much friendly and helping.
The room was very nice and clean. The hotel is located right at the center of the town with easy accessibility to near by places, especially the pooram grounds, and is just 1km from railway station. The window of our room didn't overlook the pooram grounds, but still the view of the town through the window was good.
The shower cubicle had only a half door which caused water to splash into the 'dry' area. This caused slight inconvenience.

The restaurant is nice and the food quality was good. Generally the restaurant was very quiet and clean, but the table clothes did not have the degree of cleanliness that you would expect from a place such standard.
The complementary breakfast was fine, with some basic southIndian and western dishes. The restaurant staff quickly accommodated my request for hard boiled eggs, even though it was not part of the breakfast buffet.

So the verdict is Pooram offers above average services. May be a little expensive, but once you stay here, you wouldn't hesitate to come back again.

The location is great. It is near the train station and central to the major sites around Thrissur. The staff are very welcoming and professional. The beds are dreamy - so comfortable to sleep in. The rooms are clean and tastefully decorated. The showers are relaxing with hot water and great water pressure.The restaurant offers a wonderful array of South Indian and international flavors that can easily please any palette. I stayed several nights in January and highly recommend this hotel.

We stayed here for two nights in January and have no adverse comments at all.
The staff at Reception were excellent as were the waiters and cleaners, no hard sell for their services, very helpful over future travelling plans,checking our rail tickets without us asking.
The restaurant was very good and the breakfast was quite sufficient, Western if you wanted it but the Indian food was of a very good quality.
The room was comfortable, the best bed we slept in this time of visiting India, quiet and very clean, not dog eared at all.
Ideally positioned from the Rail Station and the Bus Stand, very well placed to walk around Thrissur to see the " sights " and within easy walking to The Indian Coffee House for their excellent food and service.
No hesitation in recommending this place whatsoever, extremely well priced , very good value.

Room Tip: As usual in Indian hotels a higher floor may be beneficial but no problems on second floor facing th...
