“Great Hotel for Business or crisis stopover, close to train station!”
Reviewed 23 January 2011

We booked into this hotel at the last minute having been subject to a 13 hour delay on the overnight train to Goa. The male staff when we arrived were very obliging and helpful and we wished the guy in particular hadn't left his shift early the next morning. The room was comfortable and clean and the shower was an absolute blessing after a day travelling from Periyar and around Fort Cochin.

However not all the staff are particularly good at this hotel and in the event of needing to book two flights to Goa that was leaving in 2 1/2 hrs, we found ourselves rather stressed having to wait 45 mins for a taxi and having paid for the flight tickets, looking like we were'nt going to make it to the airport. We are sure the staff knew that we had very little chance of getting our flight, after having taken the money from us. Had it been the male who was indeed very helpful and spoke very good english upon our arrival and not the little madam, our onward journey could have been much smoother, but nevermind we made our flight as there was a delay :) !

Thankyou for your help Sir and Mr Manager, sorry I didn't remember names.

This hotel is a great place for business/shopping and an emergency stay, typical of many UK business hotels. If you want to visit Fort Cochin it is better to take a car & driver onto the ferry for Rs 50 and you will be there in 15 minutes after arriving at the ferry terminal.

We stayed in Cochin for just one day between flights, booked by a travel agent who handled the whole package. The pre-paid taxi counter people at the airport were not aware of this hotel, seems to be pretty new. The hotel rate was pretty reasonable but then the taxi transfers to and from the hotel cost Rs.1200.

It took a hour to reach the hotel, much longer than expected and it is in the commercial heart of the city on a busy road parallel to the main MG road. This would be okay if you were on a shopping or business trip but not good if you are a tourist hoping to see old Cochin. We were hoping to do some sightseeing in Fort Cochin but that is a two hour drive away so ended up just staying in.

The room was basic and clean but gloomy and full of mosquitoes. The hotel is right next to a warehouse type building so the view out of the heavily curtained window was of a wall a few feet away. No daylight and fluorescent lights give the room a rather institutional feel. A good hot shower was a small plus. Service was slow, requests had to be repeated.

The original Grand Hotel is just a 5 minute walk away and we went there for a very nice dinner. On the way we noticed several restaurants / fast food places nearby. We had our breakfast at the hotel the next morning, basic buffet with a couple of hot south Indian dishes, cornflakes and eggs to order.

No point in going all that way just to see yet another busy city street. We would have been better off staying at a hotel either close to the airport or in Fort Cochin itself.
