I was dropped in this hotel merely by accident. When my friend had booked a differnt hotel for me, the cab driver took me to The International. I was expecting to see the reservation, but it was not. Since rooms were available, i checked it. The price is reasonable, the rooms are spacious and clean. Since it is in a heavily buit up locality, the view is not great. You may have to keep the curtains draped always. The room service is excellent and polite. There is no tea maker in the room, but the room service very efficiently sends you a hot cup of tea. The food is delicious. Since this is a city of Coconuts, dont miss various food made out of coconut. Especially coconut chutneys that go along with traditional Indian food such as dosas and vadas.
I didnt mind even accidently checking in to this hotel, the stay was pleasent and I wished I could stay one more night.

An ambitious slogan above but they ARE trying! I have stayed here before about seven years ago so I was keen to return as I had had a very good week over Xmas and the new year then. I travelled in October this time which appeared to be a bit wetter.

The food was good and there are a lot of Keralan specialities such as fish and prawns. The hotel was clean but where it fell down. The hotel staff were helpful and obliging.

The only area where the hotel fell down badly was with the English language levels of the staff. Last time,seven years ago, all three managers were perfectly fluent in English. We could not even report a non working TV for two days. They just didn’t get it!


Having said all that, do go there and the Bell hop/captain DOES speak good English!

And it is good value for money!

Good hotel in the centre at a reasonable price. Good food and curteous staff. Got a room upgrade for free, not common in India

Well,its surprising that I havent written a review about a hotel i stay every month! Its true for the last 10 years i am a regular here and its almost like home to me. Food is always great here and the room service is prompt. Room is always ready for me whatever time i check-in. The location is fantastic as its just a minutes walk from MG road and a 5min walk to my office. Decent car park,fabulous buffet kerala breakfast and cordial service are the hallmarks of this hotel. It is a old hotel no doubt and some may say that it is worn down. But it really doesnt matter when the room and toilets are sparkling clean and well maintained. Rooms are centrally air-conditioned and very cosy. The staff are friendly and welcoming. All in all im a happy customer to this old but lovely hotel which is one of my favourites. Which is why its like home to me!

Room Tip: Ask for the executive rooms.
