I had one night on my own in Cochin before my friend joined me and wished to be somewhere Central and accessible to the airport so that I might meet her there easily the next night when she flew in for your first trip to India. I was attracted to this hotel by its good location and low rates. However,...

Good to have lunch when you are on business travel, driver suggested the best place. Sad part they dont have card machine when people are dying for the change. As per the quality of the food 10/10 and service with all bengali staff 6/10. Not for family crowd.

The Durbar residency is located in the heart of the Ernakulam city near the Jos Junction, close to the South (Ernakulam Junction) station and MG road. I stayed in this property for four nights and five days. The room was comfortable. If you are choosing a non-AC room, watch out for the ventilation. The complimentary breakfast and the service were...

This place is close to MG Road and Ernakulam station. A simple and neat place. Rooms are large. There are no dining options in the restaurant but they have a simple complimentary breakfast. Fits the budget. A decent place for the family.

Centrally located at Jos Junction, a quite place for business traveler. Though nothing special about the place it has been a regular hotel for many business travelers to Cochin. A very Monotonous breakfast, selected, TV channels are available

I have been a repeated guest to this hotel. It is a budget hotel with adequate facilities and moderate pricing. The main attraction of this hotel is its location. It is in the heart of Ernakulam city. The hotel is easily accessible from major Railway station (Ernakulam South) and Bus depot (KSRTC). The major commercial hub, MG road is just...

If your need is a budget stay in the center of the city, this could be the hotel for you. Getting an AC room with a complimentary breakfast for single occupancy at this rate in cochin is definitely good. The room are clean and well maintained, the only challenge being the bed, which cant accommodate a bulky guy or those...
