Great location (close to town center, transport and private stands, etc.) and basic structure, room accessories, bathroom fittings, etc. are well-done/high-end. Staff was generally helpful. However, the room was poorly maintained, with a musty smell and dirty/dusty counter-top and chair. Counter-top panel was peeling off and not-too-clean phone had no instructions on how to use for various services. Linen and...

Intercom provided in the room was dead. Chairs were broken. No drinking water was available( one old water bottle filled with tap water was kept on the table). No bell boys were available. We had to carry our suitcases to the room ourselves. Stairs and corridors were kept very clean. If the rates are reduced by 25% it is worth.

When I booked a room here over phone based on a search in hotels.com, I thought I got myself a good deal. Drive slowly along this one-way road or you will miss the sharp, narrow entrance and then have to take a full circle of 0.5 km to come back again!! We were told that there is ample covered parking,...

The biggest pro of the hotel is its location,right in the heart of Kottayam, The rooms are big but poorly maintained. The ambience of the place is not good either. Facility wise the hotel is getting a zero but it goes easy on the pocket. *Stay if you have no other option*

Location of the hotel is the only advantage. The rooms though big are lousy with bad odour due to the poor maintenance. Not even Good for having a drink party. The lighting and ambience are not good in general.

I think it is the best hotel in its category. The space of the room, the bathroom fixtures and cleanliness is good. This is a business hotel and is still coming up to pace with the other hotels. There are no real facilities. If you Compare the price and the requirement to stay for a night it's perfect. Where else...

Stayed here as I couldnt get room at the usual hotel. This hotel was primarily built to get the license for the BAR it seems. BUT,the rooms are neatly maintained. The staff is only a handful, but helpful. No complimentary breakfast or water.Situated in the heart of the city. If the quality and amenities are increased a bit, this hotel...

“Farther from the main road might be quieter, but also means a longer walk down the dark corridor; personal trade-offs at play.”

“We got 102 which is reasonably quiet if the windows are shut. Otherwise there is large road noise”

“Chose a suite if you want more room and traveling with a family. Although the extra bed is just a mattress and has no bed frame so it will lay on the floor.”
