We just had our wedding reception at Taj Gateway on Marine Drive and stayed there a night. The service, attentiveness and patience of the staff was simply incredible! Special thanks to the head chef Salem and manager Sreejesh, for the time and detail they put into the planning of the whole event, including coordinating with the wedding planner, photographers, DJs,...

I stayed in this hotel on the 25th of Jan 2017 en route to Munnar. This property is located on the Marine Drive - overlooking the back waters. It takes about an hour to reach from the Cochin Airport. The location is great, easy to reach, right next door to a mobile mall and close by to LULU mall. You... More

It is the classical Taj hospitality. Right from the check-in to the room ambience, everything is pleasantly predictable. The food is good too. And the walk along Marine Drive makes up for the local touch. Don't miss the boat ride, which is organized by the Taj. Not a real upmarket boat but very friendly staff and a helpful guide.

We started with a fish soup (Bouillabaisse) which was just delicious. Unfortunately we cannot say this with regard to the fish curries. The fish curry Kottayam should have been spicy but was not and came with lots of thick and and not very palatable sauce. The latter is also true for the fish curry Alleppey. We were really disappointed and... More

Taj's 5 star property right on the city centre, very strategically located with a beautiful backwater view with ships anchored, is an excellent hotel. The Bubble cafe is excellent

Looking at the money you spend it is definitely not the best hotel in terms of food quality or service. Property is centrally located so that is the main advantage. Otherwise i didnt anything worthwhile to mention.

This is a follow-up to my previous review, "Taj Gateway: Best 5-Star In Ernakulum City." One of the benefits of this Taj location is the easy access to the Marine Drive Promenade. Guests simply walk to a gate on the hotel property and the Promenade is there with views of the harbor. For a Westerner, you'll find yourself unique among... More
