Hotel Jasmine Palace
Reviewed 13 May 2017

It is better than a budget/average hotel definitely. The swimming pool is nice. The rooms (we stayed in a deluxe AC room) are pretty basic with good AC. The bathroom size was ok but not very good – needs better maintenance; the drain in the shower area was getting chocked; the commode water pipe was leaking; lots of ants in the bathroom. The balcony was pretty big with a table and 2 chairs – but no sea view in this hotel – at the best you can get the swimming pool view.

Major issue with the rooms is that there’s no furniture apart from the bed, a basic wardrobe and big refrigerator. At least 1 table and 2/3 chairs or a sofa is required.
Do not go for the breakfast option as it’s horrible. You can just walk to the other nearby hotel restaurants for breakfast/lunch/dinner.

The Hotel location is very good (comparing with ‘no sea view’ other hotels in the area). It’s just a min walk from the Kovalam beach i.e. on the slope (road) of the beach.

The Hotel reception people and Manager are very nice. Sunil (Manager) is a very nice person and the lady too. Madhab, the bell boy doing any kind of odd jobs is also a very nice person. But do not book transportation from them. They arranged airport drop for Rs.800. I didn't take it and got a cab (which picked me from the hotel) from Uber for just Rs.275.

Overall, if you are not looking for an expensive sea front (sea view) hotel, then Jasmine Palace is a good option.

Room Tip: Ask for swimming pool view rooms - there are no sea facing rooms

Genuinely the best hotel we have ever stayed in. This is really a great hotel with fabulous views. The rooms are very spacious, bright and clean. The staffs were very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed our stay in Jasmine palace. We might choose the same hotel another time.

Some investment is needed to improve the bedrooms. We stayed in a "superior" room. Just one small wardrobe for everything. No table or chairs in the room so have to sit on the bed. Handbasin in bathroom has only a cold tap. Hot water in the shower but plumbing is very antiquated. Only one bath towel per person is provided, no hand towels, no floor mat so bathroom floor gets wet which gets walked through to bedroom. Air con in room worked OK but too noisy for all night use but the ceiling fan worked OK. WiFi only available in reception not in the rooms. The breakfast room was totally unacceptable - the table cloths were filthy and the tables were slow to be cleared from previous users. The floor was littered with food remains and cardboard cups. On the second morning we abandoned breakfast in the hotel and ate in a nearby beach cafe which was clean and did a variety of English/Continental breakfasts at very reasonable prices. The hotel pool was not supervised, no staff available to get the sun loungers for you and no sign of pool towel service. Food and drink was prohibited by the pool.
In summary we would not recommend this hotel for visitors from Western Europe who would be very disappointed with the general standard of service and facilities.

Room Tip: If you must go choose a superior grade room
