“Excellent Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 November 2011

My whole family had to attend a wedding reception in Kottayam. The event was taking place at Aida, so the host booked our rooms there. Our stay was really a pleasant experience. The lobby looks a little old, but the rooms were really new and spacious and the staff were really really friendly. They have a live band playing old Hindi music and even let my cousin sister sang two songs which we all enjoyed. They even arranged us a houseboat to see Kumarakom on a short notice. Will definitely stay here again.

The hotel is located less than 1 km from the Transport Bus Stand in Kottayam town. It is quite close to various famous churches and temples. Kumarakom famous for Kerala' back waters and house boats is only about 20 kms from the hotel. Thekkady Wild life sanctuary is about 80 kms from the hotel. Hotel has banquet halls, bar, restaurant and ample parking space. Staff are quite helpful and service is quite good. Although the towels were of very good quality, i would not say the same about the bedding.

Room Tip: If you are a non smoker suggest to request for a no smoking room.

I have booked the hotel for 2 nights. The hotel is very good to stay. The staffs are friendly. Location is easily accessible. The hotel is very cost effective. Family stay seems safe. I feel it is an affordable hotel for middle class Indian family
