“Good Hotel”
Reviewed 16 December 2010

We checked in to the hotel on a sunny afternoon after reaching Kottayam from Thekkady. The hotel is situated in a busy market, thus providing us accessibility to shopping area. The hotel front desk is at the first floor so you will have to climb a few stairs to reach to the reception area. There is also a lot of ground and basement parking area available. The hotel is nicely built and has an appealing architecture. Specially the rooms are comparable to those provided by hotels in western countries. In rooms you can find tea-maker, which we did not find in any other hotel throughout Kerala. Best part of the hotel is swimming pool at the roof top. At 11th floor, you can take a dip into the pool during a warm winter day, giving you all the pleasure.

The restaurants were ok and breakfast served at the 10th floor restaurant was amazing. Specially that we could order fresh Omelette to be served to you.

Overall the experience was good.

I was impressed by the friendly staff and their polite mannerism. Very nice place to stay. Service was good throughout the hotel, lounge & restaurant. It is centrally located with access to all shopping facility. Great experience and value for your money. Room was clean and had a good bed.

After two weeks of disappointing stays we were delighted to check in at the Arcadia. Had booked through makemytrip at a great price - so much so that the manager on duty double checked our confirmation but honored the price nevertheless.

Opened the door to our room to find it spacious (room for a couch!) and clean. Toilet was sparkling and shower was powerful with plenty of hot water. Mini bar and air con were a great bonus. Roof top pool looked clean but unfortunately we never found the time to go for a swim. Breakfast was included in the price - a nice buffet.

Location was great. Right in the middle of town; opposite the bus station. We caught a taxi to the wharf to catch the public ferry to Alleppey to continue our journey. Wished we had stayed at the Arcadia at bit longer instead.

The Hotel has got good clean rooms but doesn't have room service. Neither drinking water or Tea is served in the room. The Restaurant is on the 10th Floor and you have to walk up the all way to fetch your morning tea there. I found the hotel staff too rude and inconsiderate.

After the Munnar trip, we were glad to be back to Kottayam and check into Arcadia. What a contrast to Sterling, Munnar. The staff were so welcoming and treated us like royals. The rooms were excellent and perfect for relaxation.

The food was excellent . The buffet breakfast, though limited in choice and same everyday, was okay. The lunch at the basement was enjoyable with a great variety of choice.

It is centrally located with access to all shopping facility. Great experience and value for your money.
