  • 4.0.Fair

    A blot on Taj Hotel Group’s hospitality!!

    Except for the location, nothing works for this hotel. Since they are located in Ernakulam, travelling is convenient for lawyers as it is very close to the High Court. The quality of service is extremely poor, the staff forgets to place even the basic amenities like soap in the room before a guest checks in. Also, staff was completely oblivious to the certain basic requests of the customer. I don’t prefer to stay in this hotel but constrained to stay in this property because of its location. For my next visit to Kochi / Ernakulam, I am definitely going to explore other hotel options, even if that entails longer travel times within the city.

  • 8.0.Very good

    Excellent by all counts!

    Excellent stay, right from the word go, the Check in was smoothly handled by Ms. Evelyn, she even gave us a room with a superb view, Ms. Lisha called a day prior to check if there were any other requirements before check in. The breakfast at Bubble Cafe was excellent all three days, the Chef and his team needs to lauded for their efforts [appams, egg mappas, etc] and also not to miss mentioning Sharon for her traditional dishes. Vaishali, Shaju and his team including Vipin needs a special mention for their customer service. At Sian restaurant, the Chef Sudheesh, Sujith, Joswin & Akshay indeed needs a special mention for their customer service and also the excellent seafood dishes they served us, we ended up going back again a second time. The Check out too was as smooth as the Check in, Evelyn, Unnikrishnan and the doorman [missed his name] on 16th Sept. along with the security ensured that. Have been staying here quite a no. of times and will most definitely come back again!
