Taj Gateway at Marine Drive, Kochi is a beautiful, peaceful and very well maintained hotel. During my stay of 2 days, I experienced complete relaxation, extremely peaceful sleep on a most comfortable bed, very friendly and cordial staff, always smiling and willing to please, good variety of cuisine at Bubble Cafe and, overall, a wonderful experience.

The best bar in Cochin. Visited on December 2016 and had a couple of drinks. They have wide variety of alcoholic drinks. The bar was spacious and can accomodate 50+ people at a time. However a negative that I found was that attenders wasn't so nice to customers.

Actuallly visited this hotel in march 2015. Their hotel is very well maintained. They had a very good initiative of keeping glass bottles of water in the room and reusing the same for refills. Their restaurant was also very nice. We had the best Gateway dosa here.
