This hotel was booked for us as part of a tour. Not really my cup of tea, too posh and corporate, but that's personal taste. There was nothing wrong with the place and they kindly upgraded us to a water view room so I have to rate it very good. The gardens were beautiful and access to the walk beside...

The staff, be it at the front desk, restaurant or housekeeping are very cheerful and helpful. They go beyond all expectations. For instance, they visit the room twice a day for house keeping and replenishing supplies, offer free snacks...

Rooms: Okay Food: Good Location: Splendid I usually do not review properties objectively like I did here, but that sums up this property. I failed to create any impact; neither positive nor negative. It is a forgettable property, yet I stay here every time I visit Kochi. Irony Abound.

I booked the Gateway because it overlooked the water and had no idea it was a Taj property. The front desk staff were so nice and attentive. Sharmila and Shobin were there for me the entire 3 nights and answered all the questions I had and arranged a taxi for me to Alleppey. The all inclusive breakfast had great selection...
