I booked this hotel after reading the reviews in trip advisor and also the hotel took extra money from me saying trip advisor has the old price and you have to pay according to the new price.. The hotel staffs were drunk and it was too risky for a family to stay..i strongly advice not to go reading the reviews...

Dear Sir, Thank you for your feedback. We have looked into the matter and understand that you had booked the room for the July 24-30th. However, since you extended for one more day, you were charged for the extra day. Regarding the complaint of drunken staff, we have checked and no such incident had occurred. Sincerely, Management

Reading a lot of positive reviews on “Trip Advisor” and especially since the Kochiveli Express from Bangalore was reaching Kottayam at 3am I got enticed into picking this Hotel, besides the main reason was the short proximity of the Hotel from the Kottayam Railway Station. We had taken the double occupancy A/C room with a tariff of Rs.1,886 for 24...

It is worth staying here at ecnomical rates. If you are not looking for posh stay with all facility, this can be the first choice. Good even for a family stay. Close to the shopping centre. Kottayam is approachable to most of the best backwaters and nice place for purchase of spices.

I'm tempted to give this 4-stars but that would feel like too much for such a basic hotel, but I paid 400 rupees for one night, and that's about 1/10th of what I usually pay for a hotel. The room was tiny, single bed and small bathroom with no hot water, but everything was absolutely spotless. This is a very...
