It is a good budget hotel. Very reasonable tariff. They have a travel desk and offer tours at reasonable rates. The hotel provides in house buffet dinner and breakfast. Although we could not enjoy their food I went and checked, they had good variety and it appeared all fine.
The only drawback of this hotel which I experienced lies in the construction of the bathrooms. They have taken the bathrooms on the side of the passage instead of taking them on the open side. I have seen when you construct it like this, bathrooms do not get enough sunlight and required ventilation. Although they have provided exhausts which work well, but still in one of our rooms when we checked in, we noticed someone had smoked in the bathroom, may be the previous guest, but the smoke smell continued to be there for pretty long time.
This hotel is located in the main Ernakulum town yet, it is off the main road to isolate you from the noise of traffic. Just one km from Ernakulum Junction, and for the given tariff it is a great deal.

Room Tip: All rooms are similar.

I bunked in here overnight on the way through to Alleppy...

Given that the mattress about as comfortable as sleeping on a bag of potatoes that had already sprouted I was kind of happy to check out.

The rooms were clean and after a small inspection I decided they were bedbug free. I did find a small cockroach making his way under the door at one stage. It seemed harmless enough but who knows what it might get up to once I fell asleep in my unreasonably uncomfortable bed? Just to be on the safe side I sqashed him with my thong. His intestines popped out where his eyeballs should have been.

Overall this joint isn't too bad a show for the buckaroonies, the rooms are clean (maybe bring your own sheets tho), bathroom was fine.The staff, although untrained were very enthusiastic, in fact if I had asked one of the bellboys to wash my behind for me I dont think it would have been a problem.

Oh and for a bite to eat sidestep the restaurant. A short waltze down the main drag will find you in the vicinity of a few good feeding troughs

Room Tip: Just check your room before you close the deal

I stayed there for a night. its a good budget hotel, situated at a prime location of the city. The food served from the restuarant is good.
however, I found spots on the bed sheets and there were small cockroaches in the room.
for a night, it was ok.

Room Tip: as i read in earlier reviews, pls ensure that you get a room in the main bldg. itself.
