“A good hotel, but not worth the stars (3) it has...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 May 2010

A good hotel but the service is not up to the level of a 3 star. The rooms are clean. All the hotel employees are too eager to get a tip. From the room boy to the security guard. It feels like a nuisance.

The Orchid Residency in Kottayam, Kerala, India, is a good business hotel that can also be useful for tourists as a base for exploring the Kottayam area, Christian sites and backwaters, etc. The rooms were comfortable, spotless, and cleaned daily. Both the AC and hot water worked, no mean feat in Kerala! At RS1900 per night, I definitely got my money's worth. The Orchid Residency staff were very helpful in arranging tours for me. Breakfast, although uninspiring, was good. A tourist need only spend two days at most in Kottayam. I recommend spending more time in Kochi and especially Varkala Beach whilst in Kerala

Good business class hotel with spacious rooms and the right price. It is very well located and is easily accessible. The road leading to the hotel is the only drawback. Food is good and service is excellent. All in all a good value for money hotel.

The hotel is situated in the middle of the very loud town. So it is as loud as other destinations in Kottayam. The Orchid is a good business hotel with a delicious cuisine and warm service. The rooms are very clean, the A/C is al little bit loud, the beds are very hard but ok.

  • Liked — service, room
